Have you recently installed new windows in your Cleveland home? Here at Window World of Cleveland, we know better than anyone that replacing your windows can drastically improve the appearance, and the functionality, of your space. However, if you want to maximize the look of your new windows, you’ll need to add your own touch!
No need to worry, decorating your windows is not just easy — it’s a lot of fun! From small details, like choosing a custom color for your pane, to bigger details, like building a window seat for your bay window, there are endless ways to make your windows your own!
Making Your New Windows Your Own
We may be window replacement professionals, but we also like to think we have an eye for design. If you’re feeling stumped on how to make your windows fit into your home’s design, see a few of our tips and tricks for inspiration!
1. Add Curtains
Sure, this may seem obvious. Curtains are a classic staple in many homes, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Get creative with your curtains by choosing a fun and colorful pattern or by adding a unique fringe to them. Another fun thing that helps your curtains stand out is to tie them using a ribbon or a rope.
2. Use Decorative Shades
Shades are a great option for keeping light out of your home, but that doesn’t have to be their only function. Decorative shades can add a whole new look to your window, and help you block out harsh sunlight. Roman shades are a beautiful choice for any home, and can be customized in fabric, color and style. Tie them up with a ribbon, or add a string to draw them up and down, and voila you have a beautiful design and adequate privacy!
3. Create a Cozy Nook Out of Your Window
At some point you have likely seen a window seat. Perhaps you have one in your home already, or have always dreamed of curling up in one to read a good book. Well, this is an easy dream to meet! Whether you have a bay window, which is perfect for adding a window seat, or simply want to add pillows to a deep sill, building a window seat is not only easy, but it’s an inexpensive way to create a beautiful and unique look!
4. Build a Window Garden
Perhaps one of the easiest, and most inexpensive ways, to add some flair to one of your new windows is by placing a few indoor plants on the sill. This not only looks great, but certain indoor plants have also been proven to clean the air in your home. This decorative option looks especially great in kitchen windows, office windows and bathroom windows.
5. Frame with Bookshelves
Whether you choose to add a small bookshelf beneath the sill of your window, or frame your entire window with built-in bookshelves, placing books around your window is a beautiful and eye-catching addition for any home. And, you don’t have to be a bookworm to make this design work, you can always use shelving for knick-knacks and other storage!
