How to dress your windows in 2021

Hooray! We can finally meet up with friends in private gardens. Although we’re not out of the woods just yet, and face masks, hand sanitising and social distancing are still very much the norm – it’s the news that many of us have been longing for.

From the 17th May, it’s hoped that the lockdown restrictions will be eased even more, allowing up to six people or two households to mix indoors. But the question is – is your home ready to receive visitors?

Whilst it’s been great to spend so much time at home with our loved ones, the chances are it has made you very aware of mucky fingerprints and smudges on your glass windows and outdated furnishings that no longer complement the décor. So, before it’s time to welcome people back over the threshold, it’s worth making the necessary tweaks and changes now. And where better to start than the windows?

Window dressing ideas to suit every style

  • Earthy tones – offering hues of muted greens, browns and blues, these natural shades are perceived as warm, reassuring and settling colours and can be easily incorporated into several rooms in the home.

This colour is a fantastic option for window coverings – be it blinds or curtains. And if you’d prefer to adorn your space with earthy tones instead, faux wood blinds are sure to match the colour scheme effortlessly.

  • Tropical prints – let’s face it, we’re all craving a sunny beach holiday, aren’t we? Whilst the travel ban has stopped us, tropical prints have already made a dramatic comeback this year.

Guaranteed to brighten up any dull space, these prints will make a real statement in almost any room in the house – be it the kitchen, living room, bedroom or even the bathroom! And the best bit is, you can either opt for bold, luxurious fabric curtains (which you can wash or swap and change for new ones) or printed roller blinds that provide the perfect backdrop for your very own tropical paradise.

  • Report patterns – there are no two ways about it, patterned coverings add something different to your windows. They have the biggest visual impact of all and become a true focal point of the room.

From florals and spirals to spots, stripes and checks in almost every colour, there are oodles of designs to choose from, all sure to draw the eye. Patterned curtains look brilliant when closed and can frame your windows once tied back at the side. Alternatively, blinds offer privacy and control the light – whilst still making a statement.

  • Single colour fabrics – looking for something a little more understated? Perhaps you don’t want your blinds to clash with the rest of the room? No problem – Galaxy Blinds supply, manufacture and fit some of the best blinds St Helens has to offer.

Although they do provide bold patterns and prints, they have a wide variety of plain blinds to choose from – all made to measure and from top quality fabrics. So, whether it be traditional vertical blinds, roller blinds, roman blinds or Venetians, you’re sure to find a colour that matches your stylish needs.
