Bonus Home Window Decoration Tips and Highlights

I’m confident that you’ve found the right house or apartment window decorating ideas at this point. Now, there are a few other factors you should bear in mind. Let’s see the best practices for decorating your windows.

Tip 1. Take Lighting Into Account

If you have small windows and little lighting, make sure to choose decorations that won’t block the sunlight. Mild and light colors are advised for the stickers if this is the case. On the contrary, with large bay or bow window decorating ideas, the adhesives can be used to obscure the transmission of light a bit. You are free to choose any color you wish here.

Tip 2. Use Fade-Resistant Materials

As windows face continuous sunlight, you should be mindful with the material of your decors. Vinyl stickers, for example, should be printed with UV inks. You can also have them laminated which will prolong their lifespan.

Tip 3. Avoid Overuse

Window decorations are a lot of fun. However, as tempting as it may be, avoid overusing them. Match your decorations wisely.

Tip 4. Use Vertical and Horizontal Lines Wisely

As with other stylistic references, vertical and horizontal lines make a huge difference. I bet you’ve experienced how vertical lines on clothing can make you look taller while horizontal lines can do the opposite. The same logic holds true for windows.

Tip 5. Keep the Style Consistent

Window decorations can be well utilized with other types of home decor. For example, you can have matching window and wall adhesives. Just make sure to keep the overall theme and layout of your interior design in mind.

These ideas and tips will help you decorate the windows of your home in good taste. They’ll work for any window style and add a finish touch to your interior.
