Does The Window Hold The Key To How Your Room Looks And Feels?

Decorating our home can often be a fun thing to do. With ideals brimming when it comes to the furniture we want in the room, the colors we want on the walls, and even the type of light fitting that will be in there and the flooring. So many ways to change a room, but so little time and often budget to do it all at once. There is, however, one part of a room that perhaps gets overlooked, and that is the window. With that in mind, here’s how the window could hold the key to how your room looks and, with a little attention, could transform the way it looks.

The use of fresh air  

The way a room feels can often be the key to transforming how it looks, and often fresh air can be just the way to do it. We have all been there, walking into a room that smells stagnant and stuffy; it doesn’t give you the impression you want. Getting as much fresh air into the space really helps to freshen up not just the air but the things you have in your room. Add some fresh flowers into the mix, and naturally, you will have a better outlook. 


Letting the light in 

Natural light can be a great way to transform a space. The use of artificial light more and more can really change the look. While this is nice for an evening, and a lower lighting option like candles and lamps can really help a room to feel cozy, during the day, you want brighter light, and natural light is the best you can get. Open up the curtains, keep the blinds drawn back, and let the light in. 


Making it a dramatic feature 

The window is often overlooked when it comes to the design and transformation of a room. With people focusing more on the walls and what is in the room. But the window can be a big feature in itself. A quick look online might highlight the perfect hanging option, and considering the different materials for curtains, along with pattern and color, can help make the window look and feel more dramatic. If you want a simplistic look, why not look for the best faux wood blinds as a different option? They can keep things simple but still add an element of style. Shutters can also be a great option and in keeping with the character of the property. 


Using the window sill as the ideal display area 

Finally, the window sill is a great place to display things. You can use it to display things like pictures or ornaments you have. Or utilize it in other ways to make the window more of a feature. It is often forgotten about, but it can be the ideal place to have your favorite things without worrying about where to put them in the rest of your room. 

Let’s hope these tips help you to make your window more of a feature in your room.
