As the days get warmer, our desire to keep our houses looking fresh and inviting gets stronger. Interior design is overwhelming at times but can be simplified by focusing on a singular aspect in a room. Keep style in your home by updating the look of your windows with the help of some of this year’s hottest trends:
Black Window Frames
In keeping with 2018’s dramatic style trends, the current window frame trend is bold and black. This surprisingly versatile looks up-to-date and pairs well with a variety of different design choices. Black window frames allow you to maintain the everyday appeal in your home while giving you a wide range of customization options. They can pair well with the full colour spectrum while adding contrast and can highlight overlooked details in a room. Black window frames can also appear less weighted than coloured ones, creating the illusion of a clearer, more open view.
Colourful and Geometric Curtains
Add an aesthetic feature to any room by choosing colourful and geometric printed curtains. Adding the perfect pop and touch of style, these curtains can create dimension in an otherwise simply decorated room, while simultaneously serving a purpose. Further your interior design abilities by choosing a textured fabric (in keeping with another one of this year’s trends). Velvet, cotton, silk and lace are all options of trendy fabrics that could be chosen to dress your windows.
Decorative Window Film
Decorative window films are a great middle ground between maintaining privacy and letting in natural light. They can be purchased at any local department store, craft store or housewares store and are offered in clear or coloured versions. The endless array of patterns, ranging from florals to detailed graphics make these an option to accompany any style of home décor. Most are sold in rolls or sheets that are affordable and easy to apply.
Focal Point Windows
A well-positioned window or group of windows can draw all eyes to the natural light, the landscape, a skyline or other outdoor elements. Having big and bright windows open up any room and can illuminate and renew furniture and décor. Highlight your windows by making them stand out with special window treatments, re-arranged furniture (near and/or facing the window) and colourful curtains that remain open during the day. You can also add to the effect of your windows by strategically placing mirrors to reflect the natural light throughout the room.
Take these trends into consideration during your decorating this spring and you too can have the modern and stylish home that you’ve always wanted.
