There’s no question that the right window treatment can take your interior decor to a new level. Whether it’s a huge bay window, a vertical casement window, or a small hopper window, a new drape, curtain, or shade will add fresh, stylish appeal to the room. You don’t necessarily need to buy all new window treatments. There are ways to spruce up windows with materials you already have or by using a technique that you’ve never tried before.
Have your friends ever called you "extra"? Prove them right with flare. Jazz up those tired blinds, drapes, or curtains with some creative embellishment. You’ll find passels of interesting, low-cost additions online. Attach jacquard ribbon, rhinestone buttons, crystal beads, tassels, or satin bows or flowers to your window coverings to give them new life. Add borders or a decorative band across the bottom to direct the eye where you want it to go.
