You get to create a whole new room for yourself and one thing you certainly should not over look is the importance of new window treatments.

The great thing about this IKEA window treatment is that it can be used with a variety of other design styles and treatments. Most drapes or curtains will look good with these blinds and it is up to you whether you have both treatments blend with each other, or whether you want to create contrast. Alternatively you could allow the blinds to stand out more by just using a curtain topper or valance.
