Every area of your home is a reflection of you. If you’ve got a sunny kitchen that reflects your sunny personality, y’all don’t want the kitchen curtains to scream dingy and dull. Make your windows smile as you discover how to create window treatments other than curtains.
I don’t know about y’all, but personally, the phrase “window shades” conjures up thoughts of granny’s house in a bygone era. That’s lovely and all, but it’s not the look I’m going for in my home. Here’s the good news—there are shades,and then there are patterned shades. If you haven’t yet experienced the latter, y’all are missing out. Patterned shades are trés cool and make a great alternative to curtains. They give you the ability to create a modern, sophisticated, or casual style.
Totally unique, frosted glass works really well in a bathroom or any place where only a small area of windows needs covering. It’s a great way to add character to a newer home that’s lacking in it or to work with the existing charm of an older home.
Shutters are not just for the outside of your home, y’all. Bring them inside for some beautiful southern charm! Indoor shutters instantly boost your windows’ style from blah to beautiful. Consult with a professional to choose things like the louver size. You can even match interior doors with the shutters by matching louver style and size.
Did y’all know this exists? I certainly didn’t. But now that I do, I love the idea and simplicity of it. As a basic peel-and-stick option for windows, adhesive film is a great choice for those who don’t want to deal with anything too strenuous.
Blinds, a favorite old standby, give great coverage while also allowing us to easily adjust the amount of light we receive throughout the day. Choose blinds in warm wood stains or white to match your décor.
Yes, ma’am, you read that correctly! It’s mainly an idea for the kitchen, but stringing vintage-style cocktail aprons across a kitchen window—with old clothespins, to boot—is about as charming as it gets. It also gives us gals the perfect excuse to hit the flea market. See what other ideas y’all can come up with. Get creative with different ways to create window treatments other than curtains, and watch your home become a reflection of your sweet self.
