In many homes the problem isn’t the sources of light through adjacent windows, rather the ability to let light in effectively. Take a look at your current window treatments. Heavy blinds, thick drapery and layered fabric curtains often keep out much-needed natural light. Consider using lighter-weight fabrics such as cotton or linen fabrics, especially in climates that allow moderate temperatures to filter in. For more extreme climates, opt for materials that are versatile and can be tied back to let in light or close when the sun is glaring or too bright.
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.
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!
If you love the look of clean edges but lack the funds for custom cornices, you can still have a beautiful window without any soft goods at all by painting the window’s mullions, frame and sill instead of dressing it with curtains. Any DIYer with a steady hand and some masking tape can paint a window, and the color possibilities are endless. Try a bold pop of color to highlight the view, but for best resale value, choose a dark brown or black color for a chic look.
