7 stunning looks for period style windows
Dress the windows in your period home with blinds, curtains and shutters from our collections
Dress to impress
Period properties come in all shapes and sizes, and whether you want a window dressing that’s sympathetic to the period of your home, or you want to bring your décor right up to date, we’ve got hundreds of gorgeous styles to help you get the perfect look for your period windows.
Many period homes come with grand proportions. High ceilings and large feature windows give you lots of scope to create stunning interiors. And where a more modest space might feel overwhelmed by a statement print at the window, these cavernous rooms are crying out for bold window treatments. Here we've combined a watercolour floral print Roman blind in dreamy aqua hues with luxe faux-velvet curtains in a shade of deep denim.
A time and a place
If you want to furnish your home in a style that's sympathetic to the period, it can be fun to research fabrics and prints that were in vogue at the time it was built. The styling in this mid-century home references the past with fifties style furniture and a retro floral Roller blind at the window. The overall look is classy and contemporary, but with a reverence for the past that perfectly suits the architecture of the building.
Wooden shutters instantly create a feeling of timeless sophistication and a whole lot of curb appeal. They're perfect for city pads where your windows may look directly onto the street. Our specialist in-home advisors bring years' of expertise to measuring and fitting shutters to period windows, and are well equipped to deal with the wonky ceilings and other quirks that come with a period property. We can help you decide on the perfect style for your home and even match your shutter colour to your favourite paint shade.
The Georgians loved a double aspect sash window, and if you're lucky enough to look out of these beauties every morning you'll know how important it is to get the look just right. Just like the windows themselves, your look should be elegant and in perfect symmetry. Curtains are ideal for these statuesque windows as they accentuate the height, making your windows look even more graceful and refined. Double up with Roman blinds for a really sumptuous finish.
Choose a window dressing in a fade-out print to instantly create a feeling of age and history. These stunning Roman blinds give this stylish bedroom a sense of grandeur that hints at a glamorous and decadent past. Even so, the contemporary decor roots this beautiful boudoir firmly in the present.
