How to dress a window

How to dress a window

Well-dressed windows can transform a room, introducing a fun, stylish or beautiful element into your home décor. In this quick guide, we run through some of the types of window you may choose for your home, and how to dress them for a look that really lets your windows shine!

Leaded windows

This type of window gives your home a rustic charm, so why not make the most of that? Warm colour schemes are ideal; think red, burnt orange and sunshine yellow. Thick curtains in these rich shades will give a really homely look, and the dramatic leadwork on the window will stand up to plenty of bulky material - great news for when the temperature drops!

Wood effect window frames

If you've opted for coloured window frames such as rosewood or oak-look frames, it's a great idea to echo that natural-feel in your window dressings. This is the perfect opportunity to go for the floral and plant-based prints that are big news at the moment, perhaps using patterned roller blinds to give you privacy but also give your room a bright and cheerful look.

White window frames

These frames give you maximum flexibility so you can take your pick from any trend you like. However, why not consider the minimalist look? This style will always be in, and it'll give your home a clean, uncluttered look that will be the envy of all your guests! Blinds fit this understated décor style better than curtains, so consider modern-looking white shutter blinds. To bring the minimalist look to the rest of the room, simply paint your walls in crisp white or cream and choose furniture with straight, simple lines.Keep colours to a minimum - monochrome makes the ideal colour palette for a minimalist room.

Gold fret windows

If you've opted for these regal-looking windows, make sure your window dressings don't let down the luxurious look. Have fun with fabrics - why not go for opulent velvet or taffeta drapes? Choose rich, warming colours or give your home a modern twist by going for more subtle, cooler shades. Dress the rest of the room with cushions and throws made from silk, satin and velvet or, if you are styling up a bedroom, choose from these luxurious fabrics for your bedding.

How glass changed the world

You probably don't give much thought to the impact that glass has on your life, but if you take a minute to ponder on it, you'll realise that this material can be found in a huge number of things that you see and use every day. The screen of your television, your windows and the buildings in nearly every city – all of these things are made from glass. Even the smartphone in your pocket is made from a piece of chemically strengthened glass.
