How To Dress Your Windows

How to dress your windows

You’ve carefully selected your window style, spent hours browsing through Joedan’s wide range of crafted hardware and learnt all about our versatile glazing possibilities, so don’t stop there. The way you dress your windows has a big visual impact on the interior of your home. 

Whether you’ve opted for Casement, Bay & Bow or Heritage windows, dressing up your windows with stylish curtains or blinds can really highlight the stunning design of your frames.

Not only will they add to the character of your room, but blinds and curtains will allow you to find the perfect balance of light and privacy. Read on to learn more about our favourites.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are a versatile window treatment that can be found in a diverse range of styles, colours and patterns to complement your windows. 

Perfect for tight spaces, Roman blinds fold away neatly so they are a great alternative to bulky curtains that can sometimes overpower a small room. 

The pleated look also adds to the smart appearance of these blinds, and with blinds costing less than curtains because of using less fabric, you can splash out on quality material.

They can even be insulated with thermal acrylic foam, making temperature control second nature to these impressively energy-efficient blinds.

Plantation Shutters

As well as their timeless, elegant design, plantation shutters are extremely practical. 

The low maintenance shutters are easy to clean, unlike needing to take down curtains to wash them or struggling to dust blinds. You can easily wipe them down with a damp cloth on a weekly basis to keep them looking like new.

Choose to dress up your windows with plantation shutters and you’re practically guaranteed a good night’s sleep. Paired with Joedan’s quality glazing, plantation shutters act as a natural sound barrier because they are made from wood.

You may decide you’d rather dress your windows with curtains for an extra sense of warmth and comfort. 

A pair of curtains can give your room a luxurious, transformative feel. Curtains tend to offer more style potential than blinds and you’ll find them in a wide range of materials, from velvet to linen. 

However, you do not have as much control over lighting with curtains. They are either open or closed, unlike blinds which can be tilted as needed to vary the degree of light allowed into the room.

There are many more options to dress your windows. From roller blinds to vertical blinds, the options are truly endless. You could even choose to follow the current trend of combining both curtains and blinds.


Are we skipping ahead? There’s little point dressing up your windows if they are outdated and unsightly. Request a brochure to view Joedan’s collection of windows that will freshen up the look of your home.
