Hi, wondering whether you think it's best to have the same window furnishings house-wide or if mixing it up is acceptable?
I feel it's acceptable to mix them so long as they have some similar feel/continuity about them...
I have curtains in the living, dining and master bedroom - floor length with brass coloured rod, etc - these are the rooms with dark wood picture rails and window frames, and look more formal/traditional.
I was thinking for the other rooms - second bedroom, sunrooms and kitchen - plantation shutters or blinds with a similar appearance. These rooms are more bright and airy with vertical join walls so I don't think would look right with the heavy long curtains.
Does this sound alright??

I think it's done to mix different window furnishings. We will have full length & wall width sheer curtains with rear blockout curtain in our master bedroom, a blockout wall width curtain in the theatre room with a roller blind behind it, and roller blinds everywhere else.
Our curtains & blinds will be installed on Tuesday so keep an eye on my thread as I'll update it with pics when it's done

Definitely should be fixed to a stud or frame. The spaghetti anchor that was used previously isn't great at the best of times. You may get away with a hollow wall…

If you can't find anything, Ikea have some cheap ($5 translucent/$10 blockout) pleated blinds ("Schottis") that are just stick-on (don't need fastening/screws/nails). …
