Neutral Colour groups such as white, beige or cream are always a safe bet to blend into the theme of your room. These colours are what we call “transitional” or “long lasting” as they can remain on your windows even if you decide to change the paint colour or furniture. Furthermore, they provide a very clean and elegant look to any room. Remember, just because its a neutral colour does not mean it is boring at all!

The most important factor to consider when deciding between a light vs. a dark colour window covering is the size of your space. In a smaller space, or room, it is wise to use a lighter colour to make the space look bigger and create more room. Darker colours, such as brown or black make a room feel a bit smaller, but cozy and warm.

Different colours give off different vibes and feelings. Warm colours, such as red, yellow and orange will give your room an energetic vibe. These colours would be perfect for a space that is exciting and more commonly used in the household. Look at it as a room you want to show off, like your kitchen or living room. Cooler colours, such as blue or green, are used in rooms that are more calming or soothing.
