If you’re looking to upgrade your windows in your home but you don’t know where to start then don’t worry, you have come to the right place. With so many different options available to you, it’s important you’re going for something that not only suits your home but fits in with your style too. From blackout blinds to shutters, you need to ensure you’re making the best possible decision. With that in mind, here are 4 ways to upgrade your windows at home:
ADD SHUTTERS ON THE INSIDE OR OUTSIDE
One way to upgrade your windows is to add shutters on either the inside or outside of your home. I’ve seen some Youtubers doing this recently and I actually really like this look. They’re perfect for those that live in either a really warm country or a really cold country as shutters can help keep the heat and cold out. Although they can be expensive, you don’t have to add them to every window in your house. To find out more when it comes to window shutters, you can visit this site here.
UPGRADE TO DOUBLE GLAZING
If you still have old wooden windows throughout your home, upgrading to double glazing is a great move to make. Not only will it help keep the cold in during the winter, but it will help give them an updated and modern look. Whilst it can be expensive, you will find it is definitely worth it during the winter months. For more information about upgrading to double glazing, you can visit this site here.
CONSIDER BLACK OUT BLINDS
If you find that your home has lots of unwanted natural light during the summer, adding blackout blinds could be a great way to shut certain rooms off from the light. Although you may not want to shut the light out completely, blackout blinds certainly help during early summer mornings. With the sun rising as early as 4am, you may find you don’t want to be woken up by the natural light that early. To find out how to install blackout blinds, you can visit this handy guide here.
If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to having blackout blinds fitted, IKEA offer incredible solutions at a fraction of the price. Available to cut to size, you can easily fit them to windows of absolutely any size.
CHANGE YOUR CURTAINS
Finally, you may be surprised how much difference adding new curtains to your windows can make. Although it is a small change to make, changing your curtains can give your windows a whole new look and feel. Whether you change them once a year or it’s a lot less frequent, curtains can make the world of difference. If you’re looking for inspiration when it comes to buying new curtains, looking at popular hashtags on Instagram is a great place to start.
