4 Reasons To Decorate Your Windows With White

Posted by QuickFit Blinds & Curtains on 28th May 2021

In the world of design, there are some styles and shades that are considered timeless - the colour white reigns over them all. 

Decorating your windows with white can make even the darkest of rooms feel bright and spacious. What’s more, the colour white matches perfectly with almost any interior design style, and can help set the mood for any season. At Quickfit Blinds & Curtains, we have a truly massive range of white window coverings for you to choose from. From sheer and airy blinds to heavy fabric curtains - the design options are virtually endless.

In today’s blog, we’re taking an even closer look at exactly why you should decorate your windows with white window coverings. Read on to unearth just how white window coverings can help elevate your interiors.

Makes the space look bigger

Did you know that windows in any given room can take up almost 25% of that room's total wall space? So before you select the style and colour of your curtains or blinds, it’s important to consider how exactly your selected window coverings may impact that particular space. 

For example, if the room already features cool tones like navy, dark grey or brown, then adding another dark colour could make the space look and feel smaller. White, on the other hand, blends well with any colour palette, as it can provide any interior space with a lighter, airier feel. 

If you're not the most confident when it comes to choosing colour, you can't go wrong with white or off-white. As white is one of the most basic colours, it looks great with everything.

Matches everything

Choosing the right colour for new curtains and blinds might feel intimidating. Thirty years ago, brown and orange floral curtains were considered stylish, but nowadays, most people would see them and cringe on sight. 

Contrary to this, white is a timeless colour, so you don’t need to worry about your window furnishings becoming dated. As white is also a colour that pairs up perfectly with all other colours and decor styles, you can ensure your interiors stay complementary to any thematic changes to your interior design scheme. More on this later!

No colour creates an air of relaxation more than white. The crispness, the freshness, and the blank canvas effect that white decor and furnishings provide,  leaves the door to your infinite imagination wide open. It is truly a refreshing, classic, and calming colour, and can look great as ready-made curtains or even as a flattering set of sheer or sunscreen blinds.

Perfect for all seasons

It’s no secret that the decor you incorporate into any interior space can greatly influence the atmosphere of that space. For example, wool throw blankets, leather chairs and dark grey pinch pleat curtains can create a cosy, wintery feel. 

One of the great things about decorating your window furnishings with white is it can create either a warm, winter vibe or a refreshing summer mood! As the Hamptons Coastal interior design style relies heavily on white accents, your white window coverings can actually be exceptionally chic stylish year-round. 

As the windows of your home come primed for all seasons, it only makes sense for your window coverings to be just the same. Your windows frame the outdoors, bringing the natural world into your home, and allowing you a sense of place and belonging. As summer approaches, it's time to really make the most of your windows.

Unlimited style options

When you shop at Quickfit Blinds & Curtains, the style, fabric, and tone options are endless. You can dress your windows in whimsical, soft flowing textures. Play with the soothing imagery of white sheer blinds blowing gently in the breeze on a warm summer evening. Ask yourself whether this is a picture that you'd like to manifest in your own home. 

Pull up a chair, turn up your favourite tunes, sit back, and enjoy the breeze in your very own tropical getaway. If the tropical, relaxed look is not for you, maybe try a more formal, heavier drape. A solid white eyelet curtain on a modern chrome pole or rod adds timeless style. The fresh, crisp look achieved with metres of softly draped white fabric across the span of your wall will provide a calming and cooling effect. White cools and soothes. Think snow.
