We actually ask a lot of our bedroom windows, they need to provide enough darkness and privacy for us to sleep well but also need to look lovely and bring something to the space. Lucky for us, there are loads of options out there to suit any style but are still functional and well, do the job or covering your windows.

To name just a few you have the classic bedroom choice – curtains or drapes, there's also blinds (Roman, Venetian, roller, etc.)

Here we have pulled together all our fave bedroom window ideas to get you inspired, and of course to help you make the most practical choice for your space. For a clean, crisp bedroom window ideas, choose pristine white shutters.

While you may be tempted to choose white (which we love), don't be fooled into thinking they will keep out the light. They might offer privacy, but darkness is another thing – and that's what makes dark-coloured shutters a good bedroom buy. 'The primary use of blackout curtains is to obstruct the direct sunlight streaming through the windows, which makes them an ideal choice for the bedroom when the sun rises from as early as 4am during the summer. For the optimum results, an integrated interlining combined with blackout lining work best.'

Why not make your curtains the focal point of the bedroom and pull out colors from the design to accessorize with? So if you’re not one to be woken early doors from the light streaming in during the summer then this pretty option is for you.

A personal favorite of ours is a wave curtain in a solid color, they create a smart but simple finish that’s easy on the eye. Attention to detail goes a long way, we like to swap out the eyelets to match the curtain pole. This simple but effective technique makes all the difference and helps to create a more unified and custom look.'

If your home is contemporary then fussy full-on curtains and blinds will naturally not be your thing. Roller blinds are a great option, they’re streamlined and don’t impose visually on the space. Depending on the color you choose they can be ‘barely there’ which is ideal if you’re a modernist who wants to control the light and privacy in your bedroom – or show off a fabulous view.

Bring a natural element to the bedroom with wooden Venetian blinds, one of the most adjustable treatments for a sunny window since the louvers can be tilted precisely to deflect glare. Wide louvers are bang on trend and create a more simple, fuss-free look than the classic wooden blind. Motorized blinds are a great option for loft or hard-to-access windows such as in an attic bedroom. Or for a more budget-friendly option pick manually operated roof blinds that you just pull down easily if your windows are within reach. Frosted finishes, all-over patterns and motifs are available too if you want to add some texture and interest to your space as well as privacy. Team with sheer curtains hung from a pole that extends either side of the windows so they can be swept right back.

Roman blinds are the answer, taking far less fabric than curtains, yet folding into decorative pleats. The one downside is the price since they are mostly made to measure, bespoke window treatments they won't suit everyone's budget.

In a small bedroom just don't want anything that's going to add bulk around the window and block out the natural light.

A roller blind would work well, and you can soften it up by layering with a curtain in a lightweight fabric.
