Wonderful Window Treatment Ideas

Are the windows in your home looking a little bland? There's really nothing worse than drab windows that don't complement the rest of your home. Fortunately, though, windows are easy to "dress up." In fact, there are a variety of window treatments that you can try. And, while you could hire a professional decorator to do your window treatment for you, it's a lot more fun -- and a lot more affordable -- to just come up with some designs on your own. Here are a few great ideas to get you started!

Stenciled Burlap

If you like rustic, natural looking fabrics and want to give your windows a stylish but down-to-earth touch, consider buying some burlap fabric. Not only is it super cheap, but it can easily be cut to fit your window in any style or design you like.

Plus, burlap is a material that you can easily stencil with fabric pens. Consider buying some decorative stencils and creating truly custom window drapes that showcase your windows and bring them to life. This will give your home an earthy, country, and attractive vibe that's totally original and unique!


If you're someone who prefers a more simple, streamlined look in your home decor, you can just go out and buy some fabric, or, if you're less crafty, some pre-made curtains, that match the color scheme in your home. You could match your window treatment to your sofa, your walls, or anything in between.

In truth, you don't even have to match at all. If you want to break up the color in the room a little, just choosing an affordable fabric that complements your home's interior colors can go a long way toward adding a beautiful, elegant look and feel to your home.

Curtains with Trim

If you can't choose just one color that you like for your windows, shop around for (or make) some curtains that have a nice trim. This way, you can combine two colors that you love or that complement the colors in your home.

Choosing curtains with trim will give you that same streamlined look discussed above but with a bit more visual interest. In fact, curtains with trim are a great way to dress up a room that you find too bland in terms of aesthetics.

As you can see, there are all kinds of things you can do, in terms of window treatments, to really liven up your home, so choose an option that works for you and get those windows looking great!  Explore all of your options at a company like The Fabric Loft to get a better idea of which treatment ideas you like best.
