Very often people consider window furnishings, fittings and fixtures in the late autumn and early winter time when the main considerations are around operability and functionality of the windows to keep the home warm. Other key consideration areas at this time of the year include any minor DIY tasks that are needed ranging from minor filling jobs around the window frames to resealing the joins to keep the windows free from damp and fully operable when the expected rain and frost kicks in later in the year.
One area that people (from my experience) seem to often overlook includes making the most out of windows in the summertime.
So what can you do you make better use of a window in the summer?
I would look at dressing the window to assist in the home decor for each room. Easy ways to dress windows include the type of materials that you use in your roman blinds for example. You will be surprised what a difference a panoramic seaside view (as a painting or even a family snapshot) can make when imprinted on the material used to cover the window blinds with.
You can also make greater use of the window frames themselves especially if you have the larger external walls offering in excess of 7-12 inches of ledge to make use of.
Other additional ways in which you can add both style and personality to windows, window blinds and window curtains includes personalised touches with curtain pull cords weights (also known as finials or end weights) – these can make a very big different with very subtle design choices.
