Redecorating one or more rooms in your home can be one of the New Year’s resolutions you’ve recently made. It’s easy to keep if you stick to the classic methods of changing the look of a room. Painting can have a big impact on changing the mood of a room, just like the window treatments you choose. If you want to try something new, getting wood blinds can add a rich touch to your home’s bedroom, library, dining room, or living room. Knowing what colors of wood blinds to choose when shopping for decorative items for your room remodeling will go a long way in giving your room a visual appearance consistent with the floor and the window frame of the room.
Wood blinds add a natural and warm look to any room, as do wood floors. When shades are in the down position with the slats closed, wood shades provide excellent privacy, light control and are effective at blocking out cold air.
Since the flooring in your room that you want to decorate is the largest area in the room other than the ceiling, this helps to ground the room. If your wood blinds match the floor, the eye will connect with the large floor area and add visual weight to your blinds. If the blinds are the same color as the window frame, it will give the visual appearance of a detachment from the floor.
Whether you choose to match your wooden blinds to the floor or the window frame is a matter of your preference. If your window is on a large wall and you want to reduce the visual height of the wall, it would be best to match the blinds to the floor. Matching wood blinds to the window frame, on the other hand, will draw attention to the window area and away from the floor, which can help make your wall appear taller. Your eye, as it moves along the room and the wall, will be stopped by the visual weight created with the window covering and the frame in combination.
Since you want to draw attention to the most attractive areas of the room and distract from the less attractive, you can place window treatments accordingly in order to achieve the look you want.
