Itâ€™s the start of a new year – so that means out with the old and in with the new! If youâ€™ve had the same window treatments since you moved in, what better time than now to update your favorite room with a set of beautiful curtains. Whether you enjoy simple, clean designs or the drama of a show stopping piece, here are a few ways to update your windows in 2017.
Repurpose and Reuse. It looks like the DIY trend is here to stay! Making your own window treatments is a clever and fun way to add a personal touch to any room. For best results, grab a pair of your best flat sheets or tablecloth and hang them from the rod with a ring clip. If you want to get really adventurous, try sewing other fabrics or patches onto your new curtains.
Try a Window Film. Jazz up a plain glass window with a decorative window film. Whether you decide to go whimsical and choose a snowflake pattern, or want a more elegant abstract design, window films are a great way to add texture and maintain privacy, while still letting in the beautiful natural light.
Revamp White Curtains. Dress up your white curtains by adding a pop of color, courtesy of a stencil. The best part is – those of us who are not so crafty canâ€™t go wrong when it comes to painting on a stencil.
Go Green. Is your New Yearâ€™s resolution to be a little more green? You donâ€™t have to get an electric car or solar panels to make a difference in your home. Honeycomb blinds are not only surprisingly elegant looking, but they are eco-friendly. The honeycomb structure traps passing air, adding another layer of insulation.
Get Textured. Casual window treatments donâ€™t have to be confined to just cotton and linen. Add texture to your walls with bamboo, rope, or crushed velvet curtains.
Go Old School. Roman shades were the go-to window treatment years ago, and now, theyâ€™re back in style! Thanks to their simple lines, beautiful folds and breezy look, they add ease and comfort to any room.
Make a Statement. Treat one room of your house to a luxurious and high end window treatment. You can decide to stick with the traditional curtain shape and just choose a high end fabric like silk, or opt for an overstated gathered bottom with balloon pleating. No matter how you choose to highlight your windows, know that this isnâ€™t the time to cut corners.
