Tips for Decorating Your Windows in Style

You’ve spent countless hours turning your new home into your dream home. You have it all planned out, from furniture and rugs to pictures and throw pillows. Just as you thought you were finished, you take a look around your masterpiece, only to find you forgot one thing: your uncovered windows that are inviting harsh light through the glass. You have a few options from here. You can either throw some blinds up and call it a day, or you can take the time to make it as perfect as the rest of the room. If you are having trouble coming up with ideas on how to turn your ordinary windows into extraordinary windows, we are here to help you at e.d.’s paint & decorating, with everything from window blinds to color consultation. Here are a few tips below to make your window blinds and window coverings enhance your decor.

Tip Number 1: Stay True To Design

One of the most important factors to consider when deciding on window shades is the design of your home and, more importantly, the room you are decorating. If you have a light, airy room, you may want to avoid anything that is dark and will detract from the room’s openness. This isn’t to say you must go with white (of course, you can if you want), but if you want your room to really pop, try going with an accent color that will tie the whole room together.

The same goes for more intimate or private settings. Instead of choosing bright window treatments like bright curtains set against a darkly decorated room, consider jewel-tone window covers or bamboo to add texture to the room. Let our professional designers at e.d.’s paint & decorating show you how to make your room special.

Tip Number 2: Consider Energy Efficiency and Privacy Options

Are you looking to save money on your heating, cooling, and electricity bills? Hunter Douglas offers window covering options such as blinds that can 1) help control solar heat entering your home, 2) actually insulate your windows for decreased cold and heat loss, and 3) allow natural light in, reducing the need for artificial light during the day. Additionally, if increased privacy is your desire, Hunter Douglas carries lines that can either “black out”, deflect sunlight, or include room darkening liners which can be adjusted as desired.

We are happy to explore these options with you to help you select the window coverings that reflect your style while maintaining your privacy and efficiency needs.

Tip Number 3: Stay Safe

There are a number of window blinds and curtains that pose a safety risk. Thankfully, the designers at Hunter Douglas have created window coverings that now are safe for families, children, and pets alike. These new Hunter Douglas blinds and window treatments in South Carolina no longer feature exposed cords, either rolling or stacking up instead. They come in several different designs and colors, making it them a perfect choice for anyone who wants to update or remodel their windows.
