No need to worry, decorating your windows is not just easy — it’s a lot of fun! From small details, like choosing a custom color for your pane, to bigger details, like building a window seat for your bay window, there are endless ways to make your windows your own. Read on for more!

Interior Window Decor Ideas

1. Add Curtains

Sure, this may seem obvious. Curtains are a classic staple in many homes, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Get creative with your curtains by choosing a fun and colorful pattern or by adding a unique fringe to them. Another fun thing that helps your curtains stand out is to tie them using a ribbon or a rope.

2. Use Decorative Shades

Shades are a great option for keeping light out of your home, but that doesn’t have to be their only function. Decorative shades can add a whole new look to your window, and help you block out harsh sunlight. Roman shades are a beautiful choice for any home, and can be customized in fabric, color and style. Tie them up with a ribbon, or add a string to draw them up and down, and voila you have a beautiful design and adequate privacy!

3. Create a Cozy Nook Out of Your Window

At some point you have likely seen a window seat. Perhaps you have one in your home already, or have always dreamed of curling up in one to read a good book. Well, this is an easy dream to meet! Whether you have a bay window, which is perfect for adding a window seat, or simply want to add pillows to a deep sill, building a window seat is not only easy, but it’s an inexpensive way to create a beautiful and unique look!

4. Build a Window Garden

This not only looks great, but certain indoor plants have also been proven to clean the air in your home. This decorative option looks especially great in kitchen windows, office windows, and bathroom windows.

5. Frame with Bookshelves

Whether you choose to add a small bookshelf beneath the sill of your window, or frame your entire window with built-in bookshelves, placing books around your window is a beautiful and eye-catching addition for any home. And, you don’t have to be a bookworm to make this design work, you can always use shelving for knick-knacks and other storage!

Exterior Window Decor Ideas

Decoration isn’t just for your interior spaces. Share the love with your windows’ exterior with our tips below!

1. Hang Exterior Shutters

Enhance the curb appeal of your home with exterior shutters. Add timeless wooden shutters for a touch of traditional elegance, or customize your shutters with bold patterns or colors to make a statement. Plus, you can choose functional shutters that open and close, or fixed ones frame your windows.

2. Install Window Planters

Window planters offer a versatile and eye-catching way to decorate the exterior of your windows. Beyond selecting a planter style and color, you also get to choose from an array of flowers, cascading vines, lush greenery and even herbs and small vegetables. And with plenty of seasonal variety, you’ll be able to adjust your planters’ look year-round.

3. Consider Window Awnings

Awnings not only provide shade and protection from the elements but also offer an opportunity to add some color and texture to your home’s exterior. With a wide range of materials and designs available, window awnings can complement your architectural style while adding a touch of sophistication and character to your windows.
