How to Dress Your Windows to Make Your House a Home

By on 2nd August in Featured, Guides

Treating the aesthetics of your windows will instantly lift your home. It is one of the best methods to make a house into your home, even if you rent. Here are some ways you can get those creative ideas flowing for your windows.

Dare to be Decorative

Secure some privacy to your home without sacrificing light by installing decorative glass in your windows. Perfect for bathrooms or on windows with high levels of exposure to the outside world, you can find decorative glass to compliment any home. Alternatively, if you rent your home you can use window film which can be peeled off and disposed of when you move house.

Luxury personified

Turn the luxury factor up to 11 by hanging luscious curtains in a colour or print to suit your palate. Bring the wow factor home by installing some tiebacks and finials to match your taste. To really give the full manor house effect, use more than twice the amount of fabric required and don’t forget to add a bit more to the length to allow the curtains to puddle slightly on the floor. This will accentuate the affluence of any room.
