Standard issue windows are all the same – same dimensions, same sizes and same impact. But everyone wants their homes to look a little different right? So how do you end up doing that?
Easy; just play with the window coverings. There has been extreme design and technological advent in the field of window coverings. There are smart windows coverings, simple blinds, curtains, louvers and so many more that have redefined this interior design aspect. So when it comes to beautifying your standard issue windows, you should definitely search the market for the best window covering ideas that appeal to you. In the meanwhile, here are some creative ideas you can take inspiration from.
1. Shutter blinds
Evergreen and officious, shutter blinds have been in style since the 90’s, but have definitely seem some major material and appearance changes. They have that beautiful contemporary aura that can make your standard issue windows seem modern and cutting-edge. There are many smart-shutters out in the market too. You can even use those to enhance the modish vibe of your interiors.
2. Sheer organza curtains
For those who love to get diluted sunlight in their homes, this idea is for you. Sheer window coverings are a very hot trend these days. They filter the sunlight so that your interior design objects – wood, furniture and even pictures – do not fade away. They’re a great way to decorate your daytime interior design in natural light.
Another modern invention, shades are a great addition to contemporary and minimalistic interior designs. They have the duel effect of coming in both sheer and opaque settings all in one, which is a huge bonus if you like to sleep in the dark, but like some filtered sunlight when you’re up and about. Shades come in many fabrics and patterns, so you can select which one suits your interior design style and buy accordingly.
Curtains may not be used so often these days, but they will never go out of style. Even today, many people prefer to use the conventional curtain window coverings instead of the modern ones. The best part about curtains is that you can select fabrics that match and contrast with your interior design color scheme.
5. Louver curtains
While conventional curtains are a great way to beautify your windows, you can still take it up a notch by using the modern ‘louvered’ curtains. These curtains bunch up like vertical louvers but straighten out like a fabric when covering the windows. They are slightly different from the usual curtains and are easy to hang up. They are also more durable and would look awesome with your standard issue windows.
