Sometimes customers want a specific color, and we do not carry it. Although it can be frustrating, we feel with a little planning, the right look can be achieved. There once was a customer who really wanted a grey blackout shade color for a bedroom window to match other window treatments in their bedroom. I suggested an accent shade color, one that would bring out colors in the room décor, whether it was a color in the comforter or decorative pillow, to tie it all together. Do all shades have to match at all times?
Don’t forget, Top Down Bottom Up shades give a different look than Standard Shades. Letting in light from both ends versus just the bottom can make for a different experience. Is the view all clouds or all grass? Colors are processed by how our eyes and brain perceive light. Light filtering shades will make a room’s ambiance more luminous, where black out shades, even if lowered to let light in, will take on a different look and feel. There are lots of factors to consider when planning a room.
Shades don’t have to be uniform. They can be diverse, vibrant, or take on new design characteristics. Look around at the paint colors, the natural lighting versus the artificial lighting. Is this room for entertaining, a baby to sleep, or for watching TV? Sometimes the mood of a room can set the stage for company, or for your everyday atmosphere. Thinking outside the “frame” can open your view to other possibilities you never thought possible. Be subtle or bold – the choice is yours!
