Window Treatment Ideas to Create a Focal Point

A focal point is a specific spot in a room that grabs attention. Common focal points are fireplaces, art pieces, and windows, but depending on how the furnishing within a room is arranged, a focal point can be anything you choose. At VSC Window Coverings, your best choice for custom blinds and shades in Eugene, Oregon, we want to help you focus your design on the windows with a few window treatment ideas to create a focal point.

Outdoor Focus

One easy way to create a focal point with your windows is to let the nature beyond your windows grab your attention. Keep your window treatments light and minimal for an unobstructed view outdoors. Roller shades are a great window treatment choice for this style of focal point because roller shades are sheer, roll up and out of the way, and leave a wide-open view outside. In addition to picking the right window treatment to keep your windows bright, make sure you arrange your furniture around your windows. Keep your furniture simple and neutral and let the outdoors shine.


Create a focal point with your window treatments by utilizing texture. If you prefer more coverage on your windows, want to keep your focal point indoors, and prefer a subtler color scheme, window treatments like honeycomb shades, sheers, or woven woods are perfect for all your needs. These window treatments come in a wide range of neutral colors and feature interesting textures and materials that will still grab attention in a room full of similar colors. As with all focal points, arrange your furniture around your windows so they are the clear focus of your decor.


Another easy way to make your window treatments the focal point of your decor is to utilize a contrast of bold colors. Choose window treatments that are bold and make a statement on their own, like plantation shutters and roman shades. While plantation shutters and roman shades could stand on their own and make for an excellent focal point window, add even more contrast with custom drapery or valances. Custom drapery allows you to choose the exact styles, colors, fabrics, and textures used on your window fashions, giving you the ability to frame your windows and window treatments in a way that meets all your style needs. Keep your furniture neutral and add pops of colors from your window treatments and draperies throughout your room to keep everything cohesive and your focal point obvious.
