Are you bored by traditional window coverings? Want to give your windows a unique and unconventional look?

If your regular blinds, shades, curtains or drapes have become stale, it may be time to think outside the box and give your windows a makeover. Here’s our list of 10 unusual window covering ideas to make yours stand out.

How to Make a Bold Statement With Not-So-Traditional Window Covering Ideas

Give your windows an instant facelift with uncommon, trendsetting window treatments that are sure to spruce up your home decor.

1) Old Maps

Maps make excellent shades for home office or kids room windows. This unconventional treatment is a perfect way to cover windows and grab some attention. Some stores sell map shades. But if you want to do it yourself, fuse a map-printed fabric to linen and then staple it to the roller of a store-bought shade. Fold the bottom up 1/2 inch, then 1½ inches, then pin and edge-stitch to sew a rod pocket. You can also sew a decorative pull to give it a complete look.

2) Lace Doilies

Lace doilies are a great way to use something traditional to create something contemporary. Add some uniqueness to your little girl’s room with vintage lace doily window coverings. All you need to do is sew some doilies together to make a simple collage. Here’s a tutorial.

3) Macramé Wall Hangings

Give your windows a ‘70s look by hanging a beautiful work of macramé in front of the window. The sunlight filtering through and the elegant texture of this uncommon window covering will subtly up your room’s style. This is an excellent way to add an eclectic boho-chic vibe in your living space. You can either buy these wall hangings online or make them  with the help of this DIY video.

4) Creative Curtain Rod

Sometimes you don’t need to ditch your regular treatments to give your windows a new look. A slight change to the drapery hardware can also make a big difference. If you’ve dressed your windows with curtains, install some quirky curtains rods for a distinct look. An oar, a piece of reclaimed wood or a piece of industrial-style pipe can be a great way to add a little character to an otherwise ordinary window covering.

5)  Glass-Beaded Curtains

Another unusual window covering that not only enhances your room’s visual appeal but acts as a beautiful suncatcher is glass beaded curtains. The colourful rays released by the beads will introduce a retro vibe to the room and transform its look and feel. Use this window treatment as a statement piece or a way to add a pop of colour to an otherwise boring room.

6) Washi Tape Blinds

Update your regular blinds by adding colourful washi tape to the slats. This easy craft project is renter-friendly as it’s simple to change from season to season and leaves no residue behind. Choose bright colours like yellow, orange and blue in summer; red, white and green in winter. This idea works for both vertical and horizontal blinds.

7) Burlap Shades

Looking for an inexpensive, beautiful and quirky window covering? Burlap shades add a lot of character to a room and perfectly match rustic decor. The woven fibres reflect natural warmth when the sun shines through. This amazing window treatment introduces a casual appeal to your home in an uncommon way.

8) Ribbon Garlands

Love to add colours and patterns to your decor? Try adding an offbeat window covering of ribbons. This light and fancy window treatment is ideal for creating a one-of-a-kind fashion statement. All you need to do is knot a selection of ribbons over a cord or dowel to form a garland and install it on your windows. You can also customize the colour, pattern and length of these curtains.

9) Scrap Fabric Curtains

If sewing isn’t your thing, try no-screw curtains made of scrap fabric. Simply cut the fabric you’re no longer using and tie it around a curtain rod. Make sure it’s of the same length for a uniform appearance. It will be a pleasant surprise to see how this look can come together.

10) Stencilled Roller Shades

Stenciling always gives an updated look to decor. Integrate stenciling into your roller shades to create an eye-catching and interesting window covering. It can be anything from beautiful motifs to initials, so put your creative foot forward and turn an ordinary-looking roller shade into an attractive one.

How to Add Style to Your Kitchen Windows (9 Brilliant Ideas)

Kitchen windows can tremendously impact your overall home decor. They not only open your kitchen up by creating the illusion of space but provide ample opportunities to make a statement by adding value and function. Kitchen windows are a canvas to express your style and introduce colour, texture and character to your living space. So why not make use of these amazing focal points? Do you want to know how? Keep reading to learn some interesting ways to give a distinct appearance to your kitchen windows with the help of DIY projects and attractive window coverings. 9 Fresh Ideas to Up Your Kitchen Window Style Game  Whether you want your kitchen to feel casual or sophisticated, windows are a great tool to change its look. Try implementing the following ideas to easily update your kitchen space. 1) Patterned Roman Shades Solidly coloured roman shades can look boring when used for a long time. An excellent way to upgrade their appearance without changing your existing window treatment is by adding some patterns. If you’re good at DIY, add splashes of colour to roman shades or transform them with painter’s tape, fabric paint and a few well-placed lines to create chevron patterns. This chic and updated window covering is sure to turn heads.

The filtered light coming through them gives your decor a whimsical effect without losing out on privacy. They’re also inexpensive and add fabulous visual texture to your kitchen. 3) Farmhouse Shutters When we talk about window shutters, you probably think about plantation or California shutters. But it’s time to ditch traditional shutters and embrace farmhouse charm with wooden shutters made from folding doors. You can either customize an existing wooden door to your kitchen window’s size or make it from old planks. This unusual window treatment idea is both practical and visually appealing. Here’s how to make them. 4) Wordy Plaque Though kitchen windows covered with curtains are good for functionality, they may not be stylish. But a simple upgrade can give the space a much-needed spark. Add a plaque above your kitchen windows, in between your curtains, that’s only revealed when opened. It can be just a word like EAT, SUNSHINE, or FOOD or a one-liner like ‘FOOD FOR THOUGHT’ depending on the plaque’s length. This quirky addition will introduce an element of fun to your kitchen and make the space more interesting. 5) Classic Café Curtains Any discussion of kitchen window treatments is incomplete without classic café curtains. If no covering seems right for your kitchen windows, trust all-time favourite café curtains to make a stunning visual impact. They’re a perfect way to add a little style and privacy while letting in natural light. The best part is they’re available in a wide range of colours, patterns and textures. Choose the fabric that best suits your kitchen’s colour scheme and decor style. 6) Funky Tiebacks One of …

8 Common Problems That the Right Window Treatments Can Solve

Window treatments not only increase the functionality of your windows but act as a design element to enhance your home decor. And thanks to the numerous styles and options available, choosing ones to suit your windows shouldn’t be difficult. Of course, not everyone is aware of their versatility and the decor problems they can solve. Not sure how the right curtains, blinds, shades and shutters can fix common household troubles? This post outlines eight issues that the right window coverings can address. How Window Treatments Can Solve Common Decor Problems Window coverings, as we know, are a great way to increase privacy, provide light control and add style to interior decor. Right? But did you know that choosing the right window treatments can solve many home design problems? No? Read on! Problem 1: Your Windows Are Too Small Solution: Some windows are so small that choosing suitable window coverings becomes difficult. Instead of overwhelming them with complicated arrangements, choose ones that can be customized to fit. Some of the best treatments for small windows are roller shades, roman shades and wood blinds. Problem 2: The Room Gets Too Much Sun Solution: South-facing rooms get a lot of sunlight. This can heat your home excessively and fade furniture upholstery and carpets. The problem becomes worse if your bedroom window faces the rising sun. Say goodbye to slumber! All you need to fix this are blackout curtains. These heavy window coverings are a blessing for late risers and people who work night shifts. The fabric is foam backed and helps block more light than regular curtains to create a cozy, sleep-conducive environment. Problem 3: The Window Is in the Corner Solution: Awkward corner windows are a perennial design agony that are tough to dress properly. Although tricky, there are ways to transform them into an eye-catching element of your home decor. Install separate panels or rods on each window and dress them with identical curtains, draperies or roman shades.  This arrangement looks symmetrical and allows you to open each window separately. Problem 4: Your Neighbours Are Nosy Solution: Whether you live in a busy neighbourhood where passers-by are constantly moving past your living room window or just have nosy neighbours, a functional window treatment provides great privacy. Fortunately, there are plenty of elegant options that offer solitude without compromising on light or style. Cellular shades, plantation shutters and aluminium blinds stay tightly closed for privacy and light control but can be adjusted to give you the privacy you desire. Problem 5: The Window Is Difficult to Access Solution: From bay windows and skylights to transoms and casements, inaccessible windows are tough to cover. Your best bet? Choose customized window coverings like motorized shades, cordless blinds and roller shades. These simple solutions not only let you open and close window coverings easily but increase the visual appeal of your living space. Problem 6: Your Sliding Door Lets in Too Much Sunlight Solution: If you have a sliding door that lets in unwanted light …
