Windows: Why Not Dress To Impress?
Posted on December 10, 2019
Although it’s a bit of a cliché, windows are the eyes of the home, and the way they’re decorated with blinds or curtains can make or break the look of a room. Although windows are essential for letting light in, the way they’re dressed also affects the design of the room. So, why not dress to impress?
To get started, make sure your windows are clean. A thorough wipe will get rid of fingerprints and spiderwebs, leaving you with a sparkling clean slate to work with.
Next, figure out what you’d like for each room. The purpose of the room will affect the way you dress the window, so it’s good to plan this through before you begin designing.
Blackout curtains are a popular option for bedrooms since the extra lining stops the sun from filling the room and waking you up too early. Although blackout curtains are usually a single dark colour, this doesn’t have to be the case. You can find blackout curtains in a range of different colours to suit the rest of your bedrooms colour scheme, and there’s even some patterned options available for extra flair.
Bathrooms and kitchens
Venetian blinds are a great choice for bathrooms and kitchens, with a choice of materials including plastic, metal and wood. These blinds can be set to different angles to let different levels of light in, as well as provide more privacy. All of the materials can be wiped clean with ease too, making them ideal for the rooms with potential for a bit more mess.
Vertical blinds are an ideal practical solution for conservatories, with the same tilting and easy cleaning benefits of venetian blinds. This traditional look isn’t the only option though; roller blinds are a great way to give the room a more contemporary look.
If you have French or patio doors leading from your conservatory or other room at the back of the house, you can spruce these up with thermal curtains. These curtains are constructed with stiffer fabrics to keep the room warm, but they aren’t used purely for practical reasons. You can find plenty of thermal curtains with deep, bold colours and lighter, summery patterns. The thicker fabric gives the curtains an elegant drape that holds its position well.
