How to dress up a single window

Are you contemplating how to decorate a single window? A lot of homes have windows that simply don't come in pairs, whether they're located in the kitchen, bathroom, or another nook in the home. One doesn't have to be the loneliness number with these home décor tips. Take a look at some ways you can jazz up a single window:

  • Find the right size: "The first thing to consider in dressing a single window is size: Give the window a look that makes it feel proportional to the room," writes a blogger for Better Homes and Gardens. "A single sheer panel fits the window perfectly and can be drawn back to let in light and air."
  • Height: In addition to picking the right width, you must also consider height when selecting window coverings. For instance, in the kitchen, many homeowners opt for valances. Valances sit on top of the windows so that they don't get in the way and remain safe in case any water splashed up from the sink.
  • Length: When decorating a single window, you're going to want to make sure that you're using enough material so that the fixture doesn't look too small or out of place. This is why many home decorators opt for lengthy curtains. Choose a fabric that can make a statement on its own, ranging from silk panels to thick velvet.
