3 Ways to Style Windows Without Window Treatments

Window treatments are great because they look good and serve certain functions for your home, depending on the type you are using. However, they are not necessary if your aim is to have stylish windows and patio doors


Here are a few ways you can style your windows sans window treatments:

  • Black Sashes – Getting black sashes instantly adds drama without having to pile on anything. It’s a common feature in larger countryside homes, but it also looks good on modern homes. Pair black sashes with small touches of black elsewhere in a room to tie together the look without appearing gothic.

  • Ornate Moldings – Add ornate molding to emphasize windows or French doors, especially in a traditional or historic home. They look great and are easier to do than installing molding on a ceiling to achieve the same effect. 

  • Layered Windows – Hang a mirror on a window to give you privacy while still letting in natural light or stretch open shelving across windows. You can also add a pendant light to a window, helping illuminate the immediate surrounding area better while still taking advantage of the natural radiance the outdoors has to offer, or hang art in front of windows. Just make sure your art pieces are secured well to the trim and are fitted with ultraviolet-filtering frames for protection. Or, simply choose an inexpensive print for a fun look you can change when you want.
