Sloping walls place emphasis on window treatments as a focal point
Apr 22 2011
Having steep slopes in a home's architecture inevitably leads to nooks and crannies created by sloping interior walls that can be a challenge to home decorators.
Sloping walls within a home with a steep-pitched roof creates a decorating dilemma for homeowners.
But for people who like cottages and Cape Cod-style homes, the deep eaves and gables created by a steep-pitched roof give them reason to outfit their homes with furnishings that fit these unique designs, according to RafterTales.com
Furniture and accessories that are in English country, Arts and Crafts or rustic-style décor fit well with the architecture and mood of A-frame dwellings, which became popular in the 1950s. Open floor plans and ceiling beams are common in such homes.
Since art work isn't easy to hang on sloping walls, the windows can become the focus of a wall with different treatments. The website recommends combining patterns that fit the casual style of an A-frame, such as florals for cottage décor or plaids for more rustic style.
Fabric roller shades can accommodate any of these styles and give the homeowner a wide range of colors, patterns and prints to choose for their decorating style. In smaller rooms, or nooks created by sloping walls, keeping window treatments in the same color family as other soft furnishings creates a unified look.
