This holiday season, we could all use some extra joy. A great way to spread holiday cheer (other than by “singing loud for all to hear”) is by decorating your home for others to see. Your windows offer the perfect framed canvas to bring your inspiration to life! If you are not sure where to begin, take a look at our window decorating suggestions for some inspiration.
Home improvements can be exciting, but they can become a point of stress the moment you realize you haven’t set aside enough funds to complete them. The inevitable questions about finishing the project versus waiting until later, compromising on materials or quality, and doing it yourself instead of paying a professional to do it can sap the enjoyment out of a happy time. Fortunately, this does not need to be the case.
When contemplating upgrading window treatments, we often think of the living room or bedrooms first. The bathroom, while often overlooked, requires just as careful consideration; it demands windows that are not only stylish but functional.
Not only do you need to choose window treatments that fit the often small or oddly-shaped windows in the washroom, you need to select materials that can stand up to major humidity and that will be easy to clean. Privacy is also an important consideration for any room in the home, but especially for bathrooms.
Now more than ever, we all need to do what we can to stay healthy. Getting enough sleep each night is crucial to good health. If you are not getting a restful, deep sleep each night, however, you could be throwing off your body’s natural sleep rhythm. One big reason it is often difficult to get a good night’s sleep is this: Your bedroom may not be dark enough to allow you to fall into a deep sleep. Thankfully, there is a simple fix – swap your current window treatments for blackout shades.
