Nothing you like is ever out of date

As Billy Baldwin once said “Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you like is ever out of date.” Whether it be patterned everything or neutral and traditional if it works for you then you have your dream interior.

According to a survey carried out by Houzz homeowners in the UK spent, on average, £18,000 on renovation projects in 2018.  With 75% of us renovating to improve our homes look and feel. Bedroom renovation led the way in 2018 so in today’s blog we take a look at how you can create that perfect soothing sleep environment. 

Let’s look at some ways treating your windows can help create that retreat you have been longing for:

Play with Pattern

Keen to use pattern but afraid your serenity will disappear? Then why not choose one pattern to use throughout the room. A botanical fabric can be used in pillows, scatter cushions and on your window drapes creating much interest whilst protecting the peacefulness.

Classic white

For that clean crisp look choose pristine white shutters. Not only are they elegant but wooden shutters are functional and will ensure you maintain that peaceful environment by blocking out light and reducing noise. The styling of your shutters will be influenced by how you want to operate them and how much light or privacy you want in your room.  The most traditional style is the full height shutter, which covers the entire window or for that modern twist you could choose cafe style shutters covering the bottom of your window to let that morning sunshine in. 

Layer Curtains and blinds

Adjust light in your room with a layered design.   Whether that be blinds and curtains or even softening those shutters with light curtains. If this is the look for you then choose your blind type first, at Solar we would recommend either roller or venetian as they pair best with drapes.  Combining blinds and curtains will do wonders for the perception of your window size and make a real style statement. 

The phrase you often hear “We only sleep in it” – is exactly why we should invest more into making this the calmest and comfiest room in our house – mind and body should be put to rest here.
