A word on windows

From habitat plus - bedrooms

How to dress and cover your bedroom windows takes a bit of consideration.

The need for privacy and light control means you may have a combination of options, for example painted venetians with drapes to soften the look. Or blackout or privacy blinds complemented with drapes or a roman blind over the top. Or a double track to cater for both sheers and drapes.

A warm beige feature wall in bedroom

The bedroom of this home by Whitewood Homes includes a feature wall in warm beige Resene Half Drought which contrasts with the crisp white of the Resene Alabaster on the trims and ceiling.

A chic off-white bedroom

Designer Annick Larkin's airy bedroom receives lots of natural light so a chic off-white like Resene I Do is an ideal choice for the walls, architraves and skirting board. Ceiling and crown moulding in Resene Wan White.

Drapes that have a bumph lining give a look of comfort and luxury, and help with noise and heat insulation. Plantation-style internal shutters have a getaway feeling and are great for both light and privacy control.

As for the windows themselves, make sure you are able to securely open them so that your bedroom can be properly aired. Eight hours of someone breathing as they sleep creates a lot of moisture and condensation.

top tip  Paint windowsills and architraves with Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss or Resene Enamacryl gloss, waterborne paints with enamel-style durability.
