5 Window Treatments For Spring

Spring season calls for some redecoration. With the days getting longer and warmer it is the best time to get a new look for your home. A really easy way you can have a big impact on your interior design is with window treatments. Window design can completely change how light enters a room. From changing and updating your curtains to adding new paint, gloss, or latches there are many different window treatment styles. Here are a few window designs we are looking at this spring.

 

Stencil Plain Shears

Do you have boring plain curtains? A great way to add style is with stencils. Find a simplistic stencil pattern you love and paint the stencil on to your plain curtains. Make sure to lay out your curtains flat, measure the curtains so that the designs are symmetrical, and give them plenty of time to dry. Also, make sure you are set on the design that you choose because once you have painted on to the curtain it cannot be undone.

 

Grommet-Top Curtains

Another treatment that adds flair to your curtains is adding grommets. Adding grommets is a fairly simple DIY project and can even be done to your original curtains. Make sure to evenly measure across the top of your curtain where the grommet holes should be and don’t forget to iron out wrinkles before inserting the grommets.

 

DIY Painted Chevron Curtains

Need to block sunlight? The chevron curtain design is trendy and chic as well as easy to make. Start with by washing and ironing out plain canvas drop cloths. Create a template by cutting a square poster board diagonally and then creating a rhombus from the two halves. Use this template and painters tape to draw the zigzag pattern across the drop cloth and repeat this pattern from top to bottom. Paint and dry, and you have homemade chevron curtains.

 

Ombre Style Drapes

A simple and stylish DIY window treatment is ombre style drapes. Fill two buckets with water and dye and dip the ends of your curtain in the cool water followed by the dye for a few minutes, let the curtains dry outside in the sun and enjoy your newly designed ombre curtains.

 

Window Frame Changes

Aside from changing curtains and drapes another way to improve your windows this spring is by changing the windows themselves. A new paint job, gloss, or adding new latches or locks can be a great way to improve your windows. Hardware like latches and locks come in a variety of styles and are simple to change out.
