January is arguably the best month all year to refresh your decor. For one, a new year is a fresh start and a chance to make some changes while you’re feeling motivated to do so. Plus, it also happens to be smack in the middle of winter, the season when we spend the most time inside. If you’re thinking, however, than giving your home a pick-me-up requires purchasing new furniture or hiring a contractor, we have good news: it doesn’t have to be nearly that complicated. Simple changes and updates can give your space and entirely new look for little effort. Our favorite example is, of course, window treatments. Here’s why they can completely transform the look and feel of your room.
- Window treatments make a room look finished. If you’ve always felt like your decor was missing something, take a look at your windows. If they’re bare, or have minimalist, industrial-feeling shades or blinds, consider adding drapery. Drapes add a polished softness to a space that make it feel homey and complete.
- They can instantly pull a room together. If your decor feels disparate or mismatched, drapery or roman shades are an instant fix. Simply choose a fabric that ties the colors or patterns of your room together for a look that immediately feels uniform and deliberate.
- They can provide inspiration for a new room design. Thinking about completely re-doing your space? Window treatments can provide perfect inspiration for a new direction. Love the look of plantation shutters? Consider traditional decor with a southern twist. Prefer the natural look of wooden blinds? A rustic or masculine theme may be exactly what you’re looking for.
- They can make your space more comfortable. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, installing window treatments can add privacy, light filtering, and even an extra layer of insulation to your space, all of which add up to a room that’s more comfortable.
