I have a large room with 2 sets of french doors next to fireplace and 2 windows on opposite wall – Can I use different window treatments on windows than on French doors?

Using mix window treatment styles

Hi Ray

Yes you can mix window treatment styles. In your case I would say curtains on decorative curtain rods on the french doors. then roman shades on the other windows. This is just one of several possible options.

Just keep the fabrics the same. Having said you can mix window treatment styles you have to be a bit cautious. I would not for instance put curtains with a swag top treatment on the french doors. Then fit curtains with a cornice on the other windows.

So you can go curtains and shades in the same fabric. But don’t put curtains on both windows. then fit different top treatments.

I hope that all makes some sense to you. So the rule of thumb is:

Don’t mix fabrics.

Don’t mix top treatments.

Then you can:

Mix curtains and shades in the same fabrics.

You can have curtains on one side of the room and
just scarf swags over the windows on the other side of the room. So long as they are the same fabric again.

I’m sure it’s all as clear as mud now Using mix window treatment styles
