homify’s best window dressing ideas
Before you start scanning numerous fabrics and wooden shutters, first ensure that your windows are ripe and ready to receive some dressing – clean them! Banish the cobwebs and get rid of the fingerprints and stains so those glass panes and surrounding surfaces sparkle both inside and out.
Keep functionality in mind. For the bedroom, blackout curtains are especially popular as they have been specifically designed to prevent extra sunshine from creeping indoors. Similarly, roller blinds with a blackout lining can also be the ideal touch for bedroom windows, both for adults and children.
When it comes to spaces prone to humidity and moisture (like the kitchen and bathroom), venetian blinds are a smart idea. Available in numerous varieties (including metal, plastic and wood), venetian blinds can be tilted to allow more or less light in for privacy. For conservatories, vertical blinds are a practical choice, yet tend to look a bit dated; hence, roller blinds are often picked for a more contemporary style.
