Just like we change our wardrobe when a new season arrives, your home needs an update as well. If your floral drapes and pastel throws are starting to feel a bit out of place, we’ve got a few tips on how you can make your space look and feel cozy by updating one of the biggest focal points in a room — your windows!
Decorating Your Windows for Winter
Layer Fabric over Hard Treatments
Looking to repurpose some of your existing curtains while staying warm this season? Layering fabric treatments over blinds and shutters adds depth to your windows and can make the room feel grander.
Think About Energy Efficiency
Did you know that uncovered windows can account for as much as 25% of heat loss in your home? While adding any type of treatment will help keep warm air in and cold air out, cellular shades are one of the most effective window treatments on the market today. Thanks to their hexagon-shape pockets, cellular shades limit heat transfer through the window and are perfect for cold climates.
Opt for Hard Treatments
Especially if you suffer from winter allergies like dust, pet dander, and mold, hard shutters and blinds might be the best choice because they’re easy to clean and don’t trap allergens.
Choose Darker Hues and Stains
With the sun setting earlier and earlier, it’s time to pack up those pastels in favor of warmer winter tones like navy, grey, forest green, and deep purple. If you’re a fan of wood shutters and blinds, consider choosing ones with a darker stain.
Make it Motorized
Ever wished you could close your blinds without getting off the couch? With motorized treatments, you can open and close your blinds with just the sound of your voice or the push of a button. But motorization offers so much more than just convenience. By improving energy efficiency and safety, you’ll have nothing to worry about as you relax by the fire this winter.
At Bloomin’ Blinds, our greatest priority is your comfort and satisfaction. That is why we offer a wide variety of motorized blinds, shutters, and shades to meet all your needs. Contact us today to find your nearest Bloomin’ Blinds!
