3 window treatments for spring and summer

01 May 2016

They may not be not be the most exciting home design project, but window treatments can create such a huge impact. Make the most of this game-changing space with these three easy tips.

1. NEED SOME PRIVACY but also some sun? Try this: hang a kitchen towel from a curtain wire and clip it into place with clothes pins. What could be easier than that?

2. THE SUN MAY RISE EARLY, but you don’t have to. Keep the morning light out with the help of a block-out roller blind. Unfortunately, they can look a bit bland on their own. Try dressing things up with a draped curtain. 

A blind is drawn halfway down in a window with plants on the window sill.

3. DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN CONTROL the temperature in your home by controlling the sunlight? This blind is pretty genius. It has a honeycomb structure that creates a layer of insulation, keeping your room warmer during the winter and cooler in summer. Place it as close to the window as possible for the best results (and more space on the windowsill for decorating).
