With ideals brimming when it comes to the furniture we want in the room, the colors we want on the walls and even the type of light fitting that will be in there and the flooring. So many ways to change a room, but so little time and often budget to do it all at once. There is, however, one part of a room that perhaps gets overlooked and that is the window. I wanted to share with you how the window could hold the key to how your room looks, and with a little attention could transform the way it looks.

The use of fresh air
The way a room feels can often be the key to transforming how it looks, and often fresh air can be just the way to do it. We have all been there, walking into a room that smells stagnant and stuffy, it doesn’t give you the impression you want. Getting as much fresh air into the space really helps to freshen up not just the air, but the things you have in your room. Add some fresh flowers into the mix and naturally you will have a better decent.
Letting the light in
Natural light can be a great way to transform a space. The use of artificial light more and more can really change the look. While this is nice for an evening, and a lower lighting option like candles and lamps can really help a room to feel cozy, during the day you want brighter light and natural light is the best you can get. Open up the curtains, keep the blinds drawn back and let the light in.
Making it a dramatic feature
The window is often overlooked when it comes to the design and transformation of a room. With people focusing more on the walls and what is in the room. But the window can be a big feature in itself. A quick look online might highlight the perfect curtain rods for your house and considering the different materials for curtains, along with pattern and colour can help make the window look and feel more dramatic. It might sound really simple, but with more people opting for modern blinds these days, as window has lost its sense of being part of the room and is more used for functionality. But it doesn’t need to be this way, it can be both.
Using the window sill as the ideal display area
Finally, the window sill is a great place to display things. You can use it to display things like pictures or ornaments you have. Or utilise it in other ways to make the window more of a feature. It is often forgotten about, but it can be the ideal place to have your favourite things without worrying about where to put them in the rest of your room.
I hope these tips helps you to make your window more of a feature in your room.
