Everything In This Slideshow 1 of 5 Facebook Pinterest Tailored Statement Just as in the dining room or living room, a window treatment should suit the decorative style you are aiming for in your bedroom. And a room with precisely aligned bedding and symmetrical furniture placement calls for an equally crisp window dressing. It doesn’t have to feel stuffy and formal, however. This plush design includes an upholstered valance, called a cornice, which tops the window with cushioned softness. It’s also a neat camouflage to cover the clanking rods and rings that hold the curtains below. Made from softly tactile fabric, the curtains draw closed to shut out the light. Altogether, the look is a taut-yet-luxurious backdrop for the bed. 2 of 5 Facebook Pinterest Casual and Easy For bedrooms with less structured style, there are plenty of casual window treatments to choose from. Roman shades offer the color and pattern of fabric, or the textural variety of woven fibers, and they dampen noises. Plantation shades, shutters, and wood blinds are effective at light control and are integral in cottage or transitional decorating styles. In this room, the windows are dressed to deal with light and noise, but they also provide color and pattern to perk up the space.

Curtains with blackout lining block light, cellular shades are insulating against wintry chills, and cafe curtains let you see the view when privacy isn’t an issue. In the case of this bedroom, a single Roman shade made from woven rattan is a neat, tidy look at the window. Like an actor in an ensemble case, it performs as needed. It complements the colors and patterns of the bedding, but it doesn’t compete for attention, letting the bed take the starring role. 4 of 5 Facebook Pinterest Layered Pair Although one is nice, a lot can be said for two window treatments working together in a bedroom, where function and style go hand in hand.

Yet they are hard, angular, and bland. The curtain panels provide softness, color, and pattern. Mounted above the windows, they don’t interfere with the function of the shutters.

Drape With Silk For a luxurious and romantic ambiance in the boudoir, designer Sharon McCormick pampers the bedroom in silk drapery panels, choosing a restful, sea glass color. Add pleats, tassels, crystals, beads or buttons for a custom touch. Included underneath is a remote-controlled window shade for privacy. Image Courtesy of Sharon McCormick. Photo by Urso Photography. Mix It Up Designer Kati Curtis favors a combination of simple sheer and opaque draperies in her Manhattan bedroom designs. The sheer fabric stays open during the day to allow light in. At night, the opaque panels help buffer sound and keep light out for a good night’s sleep. For a sleek touch, hardware is hidden in the window pocket. Image Courtesy of Kati Curtis. Pleat From Floor To Ceiling Choose a traverse or gathered rod and cover the entire wall by hanging pleated window treatments from floor to ceiling. Chicago-based designer Mary Susan Bicicchi creates a coccon-like feel with black-and-white patterned drapes in her own bedroom. Use the treatment to make a small room feel larger or open up a room with tall, skinny windows like hers. Image Courtesy of Mary Susan Bicicchi. From: Mary Susan Bicicchi Hang in Layers To soften the look and add dimension to a bedroom window, California-based designer Lada Webster loves to use layers. She suggests adding a pattern to one of the layers to create a whimsical look or touch of character. Then it becomes a focal point in your private space. Image Courtesy of Lada Webster. Metallic Finishes If it’s drama you like, you can get it with hardware. New Englander Sharon McCormick loves bedroom drapes that hang from large wooden rods in metallic finishes. Add more personality to the frame by selecting elaborate, crystal or fabric-wrapped finials. Image Courtesy of Sharon McCormick. Photo by Urso Photography. Oversized Hardware DrapeStyle designer Rick Thompson created this urban chic panel with oversized grommets and topped off with chocolate brown silk banding. The lighter metallic mesh fabric provides privacy, yet still allows light into the room. Oversized grommets work well in a smaller space with fewer windows and in contemporary settings, if you want the hardware revealed. Image Courtesy of DrapeStyle. Trim With Fabric Add a fun element to the bedroom decor with a simple, rectangular valance accentuated with beaded fringe, says Washington state designer Natalia Smith. It’s a clean, unobstructed look that opens the room to light and color and adds the finishing touch — as long as the fabric in the valance matches what’s on the pillows and bedding. Smith prefers a cornice with simple padding and a finished edge at the bottom for transitional, as opposed to traditional, style. Image Courtesy of Natalia Smith.
