What comes with a new year comes new resolutions. Always made with the best of intentions but not always enforced with the best of effort. We’ve been through them all- lose weight and get fit, quit a bad habit, start a good habit, spend more time with family, get out of debt and save money, it goes on and on.
Well we have quite the perfect new year resolution for you that is a quick and easy fix, that won’t drag you down week after week or break the bank. A little DIY home decor revamp. Replacing window treatments, shades, and blinds is one of the most affordable ways to give your home a new look and feel without costly construction projects. It’s amazing how a quick changeup can completely give a room a new appearance. Remember small changes can make a HUGE impact!
We have a couple of tips and tricks to spruce up your home decor in any room for an affordable price with these window treatments. Let’s dive in!
Adding color to a room doesn’t have to be the $400-$500 in buckets of paint needed to recolor your walls. Instead look towards painting door frames, baseboards, and trims for that new look. What we love is adding a chic, fun fabric shade to your windows. Depending on your fabric selection they can provide total privacy or allow light to filter through. Roman shades are perfect for this look, these are a folded fabric option, one of the most classic and popular window treatments to add to a room. The plus side is that there are hundreds of patterns, colors. and shapes to these designs to match your decor and give any room a little pizzazz! For children’s room or fun family rooms choose fabrics that contrast with the wall color and decor to draw attention. For a formal, luxurious look choose fabrics with rich colors and added embellishments such as fringe, decorative trims, and ribbons. If you love the Roman Shade look but not looking to draw too much attention to them choose shades in similar color to your walls to blend with the room for a clean, contemporary look.
Replace those old white aluminum and plastic shades in your bathroom with faux wood blinds. These moisture and humidity resistant, durable slats are perfect for the regular heat and steam from daily showers, and everyday cooking in your kitchen. Added plus: they are easy to clean!

By matching the furniture, the dark color of woven wood shades create a balance in the room. If you are trying to add some charisma without the costly price of painting, this is your look.
