After months of closing your window treatments to keep the cold winter out, it’s now time to transition to beautiful spring inspired window treatments to let in the sun and springtime views. For some homes, winter meant heavy fabrics and textiles on the windows, while spring should signal a time for lighter colors and lighter weight fabrics. From sheers to textiles that enable you to open the windows, rather than cover them are ideal. If you’re trying to brighten your interiors, here are tips to bring spring window treatments into your home.
The windows in your home are your connection to the outside world, and how you choose to dress them speaks volumes about your interior design style. Leaving them uncovered is a sleek, modern look for those who live in wooded or isolated areas. If curtains are too fussy for your minimalist furnishings and blinds are too blah for your modern taste, plenty of alternatives are available.
Having great windows is a major plus in any home–they add character and provide much coveted natural light. Without window treatments, however, the space will look unfinished. Whether you choose blinds, cornices or curtains, windows are a good place to anchor the room’s overall design and inject your own personal style. Before deciding on a treatment, determine what function the window covering needs to serve and the aesthetic you want it to reflect. Is it for a home office? Blinds that block out glare from the sun are a good choice. Looking for an elegant touch to a dining room window? A cornice is a stylish option. Do you need privacy? Opt for an opaque material.
Once the winter has ended, brighten your space with warm tans, blues, greens and yellows to evoke a renewal for your interiors. While many people think you have to stick with the same window treatments year around, the contrary is actually true. Dark and heavy fabrics will actually make you feel warmer inside your home, and springtime is about letting in cool breezes and refreshing views. Opt for colorful Roman shades, modern valances, and light colored blinds to help out. While you’re at it, consider matching couch throw pillows and area rugs to match the window treatments color. This will make the space feel instantly inviting and renewed for spring!
