Big Style for Small Windows

Small windows can be a design challenge. They might feel out of proportion in a room, fail to capture enough light, or simply lack the visual impact you desire. But don’t worry! With a few clever tricks and the right window coverings, you can transform those pint-sized portals into stylish assets that enhance your space. Here at Allegra Interiors, we specialise in creating custom window coverings – from luxury curtains and quality custom blinds to Somfy-automated solutions – that maximise the functionality and aesthetics of any window, regardless of size.

Creating the Illusion of Grandeur

The key to dressing small windows lies in creating the illusion of size and openness. Here are some design strategies to achieve this:

  • Flowing Fabrics: Choose lightweight, sheer fabrics like linen or cotton voile. These allow natural light to filter through, making the room feel brighter and airier.
  • Floor-Length Finery: Ditch curtains that fall short of the floor. Instead, choose curtains that extend all the way down, pooling slightly at the bottom. This creates a vertical line that draws the eye upwards, making the window appear taller.
  • Rod Placement: Don’t mount your curtain rod directly above the window frame when hanging your curtains. Extend it several inches beyond the window on either side. This visually expands the window’s width and creates a more substantial silhouette.
  • Romancing Roman Shades: Consider Roman blinds when looking at quality custom blinds. Their clean lines and ability to stack neatly upwards when open maximise natural light and create a streamlined look that won’t overwhelm a small window.

Matching the Mood: Choosing the Right Style

The style of your window treatment should complement the overall design of your room and reflect its function. Here are some ideas:

  • Living Room Luxury: For a touch of elegance, consider floor-length silk or velvet curtains in a rich jewel tone.
  • Kitchen Chic: Choose practical and easy-to-clean Roman shades in a light, neutral colour that complements your cabinetry.
  • Bathroom Bliss: Waterproof roller blinds are ideal for bathrooms. Choose a playful pattern to add a touch of personality.
  • Bedroom Sanctuary: Blockout curtains in a dark, textured fabric will ensure a restful sleep environment.
