Choosing The Right Window Dressing


Choosing the right window dressing for your windows can often seem like a very scary task to do. This post will inform you about three different window dressing types, as well as their placements. Don’t worry! We have you covered at Kirsty Badenhorst Interiors.


First on our list, we have curtains. Curtains come in many different shapes and forms. In the following images, you will see the following: Double curtain track, single curtain track, eyelet curtain, and a recessed curtain track. The one you chose will depend on the application. For example, if you are wanting to make a room darker, you will install a double curtain track with blockout and a sheer. On a new build or renovation, you will have an option to have a recessed curtain track in the ceiling so you won’t see any hardware. 


Shutters can be on the pricier side of the dressings, however, they make such an impact. Easy to open and close, shutters are perfect for those who don’t enjoy struggling to close curtains every evening. Another great thing about shutters is that you can also get security shutters, which is so helpful in the world we live in today. 


Shutters come in various finishes and colours, so there should always be one to suit your space. Sometimes, you could always add curtains to either side of the window to soften the space. Shutters are also a great addition to a bathroom, where curtains don’t always work.


Blinds too, come in many different shapes and forms. The following images contain fabric, synthetic and natural blinds. Blinds can also be paired with a set of curtains to soften the space. You could always add a set of ‘dummy’ curtains, which won’t actually open and close.


Blinds come o=in sheer, as well as blockout so you can choose the right one for your space. Bedrooms will often make use of blockout, to keep out that sun from shining in your eyes too early in the morning. Natural blinds can also add beautiful texture to your space.
