There are parts of our home that we cannot replace, however much we would love to. A great example is, of course, our windows. As much as we would like to swap them out for a new and exciting design, it tends to be beyond most of our budgets, but this is why we must get creative and dress the window from top to toe. Here are some simple accessories to give your windows the stylish and practical makeover they need.
Whether you are looking for a more traditional look or you are fed up with your dull and drab curtains, shutters are a great way to complement the exterior of your home from the inside. Window shutters are fantastic because they can benefit your home in some of the following ways:
- A classic and timeless design.
- Better light control, especially in comparison to curtains.
- They can complement your colour scheme effortlessly.
- They are simple to look after and keep clean.
Window shutters are a great alternative to curtains, and can ensure that, whatever style you have inside your property, window shutters are a perfect accompaniment because they work perfectly with any colour scheme, adding a chic and modern setup to your property.
Awnings are an amazing addition to your property. A retractable awning, like these awnings, over your window doesn’t just add style, but it can help in some of the following ways:
- Protects everybody from the sun (or the rain).
- Blocks UV rays from entering the property.
- Enhances your home’s style.
- Are easy to look after and maintain.
- Reduces your energy costs.
In fact, a window awning can potentially lower your energy costs by up to 25%. A retractable awning is an amazing way to expand your living space and add value to your home, all without making excessive renovations.
Window blinds are one the simplest ways to transform any room. Blinds instantly add a sense of style to your windows and can help your property in the following ways:
- Can control light and heat better, as they can block heat and UV rays entering through the windows.
- A wide variety of styles and materials. At Emporium Blinds, we provide a variety of customised blinds, such as Venetian blinds, panel blinds, and motorised blinds to suit your needs.
- Easy to use and install in comparison to custom curtains.
- Provides extra privacy. One of the most important things our clients look for is an increased sense of privacy, which cannot always be achieved with other window-covering options. As blinds completely cover the window, it is more difficult for people to peek into the property, including burglars.
Blinds are a simple addition to a property that has infinite options that you can customise to your design needs. You can also pair two different window treatments to maximise your design, for example, combining your blinds and curtains with complementary colours to create a stylish look that works in most rooms.
Curtains are a powerful barrier between you and the outside world. When you are looking for ways to provide a more stylish, yet affordable setup for your windows, you can benefit from upgrading your current curtains. A fresh pair of curtains can do so much for your property, including the following:
- Insulating your home, which will keep any excess heat outside, keeping your interior at an optimum temperature.
- Noise insulation, especially if you live in a built-up urban area, as thicker curtains are fantastic sound absorbers.
- Can keep the light out. Our selection of blockout curtains is a perfect way to add sophistication while also being functional, ensuring optimum privacy and greater control over your lighting.
The humble curtain can be left in the dust because it’s not considered contemporary anymore, but there are a number of fantastic ways for you to upgrade your curtains that gives peace of mind and privacy, while also keeping the light out.
If you are looking to makeover your windows, there are a variety of great ways you can do this. When you are upgrading any window treatment, it’s vital you choose window treatments that provide the balance between colour, style, and practicality, which is why these four ideas work in a variety of different settings. At Emporium blinds, we provide support for a variety of people looking for the perfect setup for their windows.
