Alone, shutters add sophistication to your home and they are bound to get noticed instantly. However, you can also make them stand out with decorative tricks. Read on to learn how you can dress up your shutters with draperies, valances or an arch.

Add Some Floor-Length Curtains

Dress your shutters in floor-length draperies to create a striking focal point in your living room. Choose draperies that directly contrast the color of your walls, which creates a beautiful juxtaposition. Experiment with textures by layering sheers with opaque materials until you find the right combination for your style. You can also go for a playful look dressing up your shutters with curtains full of mixed color and patterns. For a more transparent look, opt for sheers to show off your shutters. Your friends and family will be wowed by the simple transformation.

 

Accessorize With a Valance

If drapery panels seem like too much, opt for valances. They look great and can be made in many shapes and fabrics. A valance can be used in many different ways. You can go pleated in a classically-styled room or ruffled to give a room a feminine feel. Other options are scalloped or a swag design. Remember to get creative and dress your shutters incorporating your personal style.

Frame With an Arch

Some of the most striking shutter designs feature an arch over the window. Oftentimes this is a built-in feature of the home, but if you are building your home now, we highly recommend adding an arch to a prominent window. An arch will add drama to any room and can look very formal. Try the arch in a formal living room. You can even make a master bathroom feel like a luxury spa.
