I just moved into a new home and am so confused with all the options for window coverings! A few questions I have, any help would be appreciated!!
1) is it better to do 1 full shade or 2 separate shades on my large patio door? Should the shade match my beige tiles or my dark chestnut cabinets? Must the windown on the adjacent wall in the kitchen have the same window covering as the patio door?
2) My family room has two windows on either side of my fireplace. I have dark brown hardwood in the room. I want to do wood blinds as well as decorative curtains on top. Should I do dark blinds to match the floor with light curtains, or light blinds and dark curtains? My curtain rods are dark brown and also match my hardwood.
