Is your room in need of a simple face lift — something to bring color or a fun detail to the space? Well, an easy way to transform any room is via window treatments. With window treatments, the sky’s the limit. Not only can you get creative with your colors, lengths, etc., but you can also use the curtain rod as an accent for your home. Window treatments are essential for color and detail, as well as privacy and accenting a window accordingly. Done properly, they can bring an entire room together.
Without a doubt, windows are an important element of any room. Windows create flow, guide your furniture arrangement, and also allow for natural light and air to filter in. For that matter, light and air are necessary to make any space appealing, delightful, and healthy. Oftentimes, though, window treatments are often overlooked. Windows are either left bare — or, in many cases — are an afterthought. However, simply upgrading your window treatments turns the natural light in your living space or bedroom into a focal point. They add a touch of character and attention. The best part is that giving your window treatments a touch of pizzazz doesn’t have to be difficult!
First and foremost, add a curtain rod — we tend to love the rustic look. Ideas, galvanized pipe found at your local hardware store. You can match the galvanized pipes with either neutrals and a hint of color.
This curtain rod upgrade is so simple, you’ll wonder why you haven’t done it already. Give the windows in your living space a stately, traditional feel by using a brass or galvanized curtain rod instead of a metal or plastic one. If brass is out of reach, DIY this look with a bit of spray paint.
Secondly, upgrade your curtain pull as they are back in style (three claps for that!). This stunning geode tieback can transform dull white curtains without springing for a new set. Customize this look with a rock or agate that speaks to you (or — for a fancier look — try a crystal doorknob). A tieback is especially useful in a room with blackout shades. These types of window treatments have the tendency to feel too dark during the day.
Third, a quick tip that I personally like is layering a natural woven Roman shade beneath a curtain so the curtain can frame the window.
Lastly, utilize antlers. Antlers are currently popping up in some of my favorite home stores. But, for good reason! They lend a rustic, lodge-inspired feel to your home, and don’t overpower your day-to-day decor. Antler tie-backs are so fun and eloquent. You can either go out and search for your “wild” antler, or you can head to your local craft store.
