Windows form the soul of your home decor. Even without any embellishments, they do a lot for your ambience just by letting light enter your home.

Surprisingly, this interesting home element doesn’t get its due when it comes to home decor. Think about it; people tend to give a lot of thought to furniture, wall paint, and home accessories, but windows are largely ignored. Sure, you can put up curtains and window blinds to complete the look. But is that enough?

How to Decorate Windows? Let’s Check Out Some Interesting Design Ideas

The Charm of Painted Wood

To add a touch of richness to your home’s decor, you can paint your window frames. Opt for a staid no-nonsense white, or go for dramatic colours like sunny yellow or turquoise blue. Make sure to pick a colour that goes well with the rest of your home decor. To add an interesting edge to your magnificent windows, you can even use wooden panels on the sides of your recessed windows. Using ceramic tiles will also do the trick.

Old World Charm of Wooden Shutters

Wooden shutters add oomph to home decor. Shutters work very well with funky or rustic home decor.

You can add this element to a side window, or your window seat, for effect. These shutters may be either in natural wood tints, or in white, depending on your wants. If you’re looking for that ‘wow’ factor in your home decor, this is it!

Do it with Blinds

Blinds allow you to experiment with a variety of styles and colours. If you’re looking for a vibrant, dramatic effect, then gingham checks are just the thing you need to create the perfect breakfast nook in your kitchen.

For the living room, lacy trimmed window blinds may be the touch you need for creating a perfect cosy window seat. You can embellish the edge of your white roll-down blinds with black or grey trimming for a bit of drama. This works especially well in a black and white colour scheme.

Rustic Touch with Wood

Wooden window frames ooze class and style. To create a rustic home decor vibe, this is your best bet. Teakwood window frames are a great choice for giving your home an old-world charm. For a Scandinavian look, you can opt for light wood coloured frames such as pinewood. You can carry this theme forward by adding wooden flooring to your decor.

For larger windows, it’s best to leave the centre nude to let the outdoors into your home. Don’t forget your cactus plants!

The Sophisticated Allure of Arched Windows

Arches are a surefire way to add a touch of class to your home decor. This style works beautifully in sleek and modern home decors.

If you want to give your home decor a Mediterranean vibe, paint the arches using teal or sea green paint and introduce some Moroccan tiles on your window sill.

Rattan or Bamboo Blinds

Bamboo or rattan blinds are a style statement and work in contemporary interiors too. Designing is all about adding textures and different materials to your decor for a layered look. These gorgeous blinds will work beautifully as a stark contrast to your otherwise sedate look.

To carry the bamboo theme into your room, add a few baskets or planters.

Go for a Summer Vibe with Floral Curtains

Light and transparent curtains with a floral theme reflect the feel of summer. These floral wonders are great for your bedroom or the kitchen.

If you want to add them to your living room decor, opt for prints that match your colour scheme. You can use the colours in your curtain to add some matching throw cushions into the mix to carry this look forward.

The Window Sill Matters Too

Wide window sills give ample opportunity to embellish windows. Rustic wooden planks are a great way to add style to the room. Adding a few plants to your window-sill, completes this gorgeous look.

Design tiles are in fashion and are a great alternative if you don’t want to splurge on wood – besides, who cares if there isn’t enough space for you to sit on? Add a printed cushion to the decor to amp the look!

Go Festive with Fairy Lights

Fairy lights are magical. It’s fascinating to see how you can add an interesting vibe to the decor by stringing up these amazing little wonders! Frame your window with this joyful element and transform your decor in a matter of minutes.

To strengthen this look further, give your window frame a distressed wood finish. A tint of sea green or grey also works great!
