You may have already painted your room just the right color, found furniture that matches, and hung artwork that complements the color of the room, yet it still feels like something is missing. The room just does not seem to have the look and feel you were going for. It needs more color or more depth.
Did you forget drapes?
People sometimes underestimate the dramatic effect drapes can have in a room. The right drapes can draw in all of the other design and color in the room and make everything work together. They create a strong focal point and add a touch of refinement and culture to any room.
In some situations, simply adding drapes by themselves can be just enough to liven up an otherwise boring area in the room. Here are some ideas to consider when dressing up a boring area with drapes:
Patterns and Colors
As we mentioned above, drapes can instantly add sophistication and class to a room by introducing a strong presence of color or patterns. Drapes often draw the color scheme out from the rest of the room tying everything together. A pattern or color is the perfect way to break up the monotony of a neutral colored room. Most people prefer to use drapes instead of furniture to add patterns or colors to a room. This allows them to make changes more easily down the road.
Because drapes are made from so many different types of material, they are great way to add texture to a room. A thick, heavy drape can be quite dramatic, while a softer lightweight drape can add just the right touch of texture. Using drapes in conjunction with furniture in the room can help liven things up and make the room appear more cultured. Try going bold with suede, velvet or tapestry style drapes to really enhance a boring room.
Make a Statement
Drapes are so much more than just colors and patterns. So much of the statement they make in a room has to do with their length and how they are hung. In most cases, the longer the drapes are, the stronger the statement is. Long, sweeping drapes add formality and drama to a room. Drapes hung in front of windows with other treatments such as blinds or shutters add depth.
The right drape can have a huge impact on any room in your house. If you are looking to liven up a room or make a dramatic change, be sure to check out the many different drapery options offered at Arizona Blinds, Shutters and Drapery.
