Decorating the interior of your home can be a difficult process. There are just so many different options in both style and design that you can do and picking one can be hard. Even once you have picked a design that you think suits both your home and your personality it is common to find that there is one detail that you might have neglected to consider until you are about halfway through the project. Interestingly enough, it seems like window treatments are commonly forgotten when the design decisions are made for decorating a room.
The problem that many people discover is that even though they it might seem like a small and inconsequential part of the decorating process, the curtains, drapes, or shades are an integral component. Window treatments are the one thing that either ties the entire room together or, if ignored, can make the decorating idea fall apart.
If you are in the middle of a decorating scheme and currently find yourself at a loss for what you should do with your windows, one thing to consider is the use of black and white curtains. The great thing about black and white curtains is that there are many different ways that they can be used.
Designing with black and white curtains is easier because it is possible to use the same black and white drape styles on each window. It seems like they go with just about every type of decorating scheme that you can think of. The black and white curtains look great in whatever decorating scheme you are currently using, and can be used in future design ideas as well. It is a versatile window covering option.
If you have decided that you are going to do a room in a retro style. The odds are good that you have not only used a lot of fun, bright colors in this scheme, but also a wide variety of geometric shapes as well. Sometimes the use of brightly colored shades or drapes can make this type of decorating scheme look like a bad color explosion. If you hang black and white curtains that are done up in a checkerboard pattern they will look absolutely perfect.
Black and white curtains will enhance the look of a more traditional and elegant room design. In this case you might want to stay away from checkerboards and look for curtains that are done in wide strips or where the colors are layered. Another option would be to hang black shades over your windows and then add a nice white curtain.
Black and white curtains are a fantastic choice, no matter what your theme you have decided to use for your interior design.
