Dress To Impress: How To Dress Your Windows
20 March 2019
Your windows can be a big design feature of a room. When sunlight streams through, particularly in summer, it can have quite a dramatic effect on a room. This means your windows are often a focal point in a kitchen or living room, so of course you will always want them looking their best. Windows can be improved in many ways and this blog will list a few of them and give you some tips and advice to make sure your windows always look their best.
The most obvious and most common way to dress up your windows is with a stylish pair of curtains. You can usually find discounted curtains on the cheap or if you want you can really splash out on a designer pair. It’s best to choose the colour scheme of your room before you pick your curtains, then you can match them to the rest of the tones in the room. Curtains have a more traditional look than blinds and are the perfect option for period homes.
If you’re looking for a more modern style in your home, blinds are definitely the way to go. You can choose from a range of styles of blinds and pick something which best suits the décor in your home. Roller blinds are a common type and they’re great for blocking out light when you don’t want it in the room. You’ll mostly find roller blinds in bedrooms for keeping out the sun in the mornings. Horizontal blinds are perfect for kitchens, especially in a wood finish. They give a really cosy feel to a room and add a bit of country charm. Vertical blinds have a classic and elegant look and work well in any room. They let in a bit more natural light without direct sunlight beaming in.
One way to dress up your windows is to have a total refresh and replace your windows. If you live in a period property, the windows are most likely made of steel. The Heritage Windows Company makes aluminium windows that replicate the traditional steel style but have the efficiency and security a modern home needs and deserves. It’s amazing what new windows can do for your home, both inside and out. Our heritage aluminium frames bring the best of modern durability and security, but with a traditional look.
Lastly, it’s always nice to have trinkets or ornaments lining your window sill to add some character and personality to the room. Framed photos are usually the best option, but don’t be afraid to be creative. You can add little plants, like succulents which are very on trend at the moment. If you have children, you could adorn the window sill with their art and craft projects. Add anything you think will draw focus to your windows and add your own personal touch to your home.
