Breathe New Life Into Your Windows Using These 4 Easy Steps

windows-2133769_960_720.jpg

The windows of your home do not have to just be classic double glazing with white PVC fascias and maybe a curtain or two. Just like every other aspect of the exterior of your home, you can explore your creativity and show off your personality through your windows. Front doors can now be composite, classic wood or futuristic steel. Gardens can now be adorned with rockeries, water features, subtle lighting and architectural pieces. Your windows are no different. Use these ideas to inspire you to give your windows that well earned facelift.

1. Window Boxes

If you have relatively plain windows that need a little injection of color and vitality, try and utilize simple window boxes. Window boxes come in all shapes and sizes, from the ornate and highly decorative, to the minimalist and simple. Select which type of window box would best suit your home and install these at the front of your property. If you are particularly green fingered, select colorful plants to create a beautiful new fascia to you home. If you're more into the sculptural aspect of horticulture, opt for bamboos and miniature trees. With window boxes adorning your house, your home will enjoy some new found curb appeal.

2. Films

Sometimes you will want to have a little bit of added privacy for your home. This is especially true if you live on a busy main street or have a lot of people walking past your property and having a sneaky look inside as they saunter past. By utilizing decorative window films, you can create a beautiful etched look to your glazing at a fraction of the price. The entirely bespoke design is strong and long lasting, creating the added privacy you need without forfeiting on the style of your home and creating something that is both unique and visually appealing.

3. Screens And Shutters

The look of your windows externally can be transformed by giving your windows a makeover internally. Consider the use of screens with ornate fretwork and intricate carving. Or perhaps shutters are more your style with crisp lines and simple design. Both of these potential additions to your windows can be custom made to measure, creating a bespoke facet to your window design.

4. Stained Glass

Colored glass is not just for churches and chapels. The nature of stained glass allows you to create a customizable design to place into one window as a statement piece. This could be something sentimental like a family coat of arms, or it could be something more generic such as a geometric pattern or design. Whatever you choose, the benefits are not just seen externally. Internally, as the sunlight streams through, a colorful reflected image from your stained glass will appear on your walls and flooring. Simply beautiful.

The windows of your home can be as decorative and as stylized as you wish to make them. Whatever age they are, whether they are single glazed or double glazed, wooden framed or metal framed, you can make them a unique aspect of your home’s design.
