Your windows are often a great feature, allowing natural light to flow through the room but you can transform the way they look with some simple window dressing techniques.
Use sheer curtains
Sheer curtains are made from fabrics like voile or chiffon and can be an excellent solution if you want to keep the natural light in but still keep some privacy. Because sheer curtains are so light, you can use a narrow rod fit to the frame and hang your curtains so they don’t quite reach the top of the window, maximising the natural light. Sheer curtains can also be used with glazed doors if you want to add some privacy.
Experiment with layers
Layering your windows with different styles and colours is a fun way to make a feature as you can combine different looks and get the most from your windows. Pairing plain curtains with bold patterned blinds can achieve an elegant look in some rooms.
DIY tie top curtains
The simple trend of using tie top curtains is becoming more popular as you don’t need to worry about the hassle of getting the right fittings and they’re also easy to remove if you fancy a change.
Try single curtains
Rooms with multiple windows might benefit from fitting single curtains instead of pairs. Choose a lightweight fabric for your curtains to give them that effortless, relaxed look and ditch the tiebacks for even more of a relaxed feel.
Use a café curtain
A café curtain is a type of half curtain that can look amazing in kitchens as the style usually lets a good amount of light in but still provides privacy if you don’t want anyone peering in.
Go for velvet
Velvet curtains are popular in interior design at the moment and the luxe fabric can really make a statement if used well. The trick with velvet is to keep it simple and let it grab all the attention for you. Pull matching colours into the rest of the room but try to keep the velvet just to the windows.
Even if you’re opting for a standard pair of curtains, they don’t have to be boring. Experiment with bold prints and bright colours to give your room a feature window. Make sure you pick a colour that matches the rest of the room’s design so it doesn’t look out of place.
