When it comes to redecorating your home’s interiors, there are a lot of things to consider. You’ll fret about what color paint to choose or what type of furniture goes best with the design. But if your home already has great windows that bring in a lot of natural light, you can make them a centerpiece of your room’s design.
Put Some Plants on Display
By placing plants around your window, you’ll not only create a focal point, but also give your home a more natural feel. You can easily put potted plants on shelves or a coffee table near your windows, or hang them outside in a window box.
Add Curtains to Frame Your Windows
When it comes to curtain ideas for a living room, neutral colors are always a safe bet as they frame the window and draw more attention to the architectural lines than to the curtains themselves. You’ll also think about how you’re going to hang them, but this will depend on the shape of your windows and how they interact with the room.
As a trusted contractor for replacement windows and sliding French doors, we suggest using a printed fabric if you want your curtains to be the statement piece of the room. Solid curtains are made to block sunlight and provide a heavier look while sheer curtains will provide a moderate amount of shade when fully closed while creating a light and airy look. So, if you want the maximum amount of sunlight to shine through, we suggest going for sheer curtains.
Update Your Molding
When was the last time you touched up the molding around your windows? If you’ve never done it before, try wiping them down with a simple cleaning solution, and then repaint them in a bright white color. Doing this will help the molding pop against your walls while also complimenting your windows if you have them repainted as well. It may even be better to get new molding installed if you’re looking to obtain a more dramatic change that compliments the style of your windows.
