When you get replacement windows in Tualatin, OR, you might think the installation of those windows is the final step in the process. However, you will still need to do your part in decorating the windows after they are installed. That finishing touch can really make the windows shine in a complete way. Here are a few tips to help you start off in the right direction as you finish your window project.
Dust Them Off
Before you add anything to your new windows, you will want to dust them and perhaps wipe them down. The installation process is a messy one and there will likely be a layer of dust on everything. Make sure the windows are as clean as possible before you move forward with any decorations.
Place The Window Coverings
One of the first things you might want to do once the new windows are in place is to cover them up with your old, or even with new, window coverings. You have to take the window coverings down when you get the new windows installed so it is a good time to get new models if you want to. Either way, you will need to restore the privacy and light filtering options to your home as soon as you are able. Window coverings are a way of ‘dressing’ the new windows. Make sure whatever you put up goes along well with the new window’s style. You also want the new windows to function as you need them to, which the window coverings will help with as well.
Hang The Art
If you have any stained-glass hangings, children’s painted items, or other things you had hanging in the windows before, you may want to put them back up in a new location on the new windows. These items give your house a personal look and feel and show off some of your sense of style as well. There’s nothing like having a child’s artwork hanging for all to see. And some of the stained-glass hangings can bring rainbows of light into your room, giving it a new appeal as well.
Keep Them Open
In order to truly appreciate the windows, you might want to let them be their own decoration, at least for a while. You can appreciate their natural beauty, the light they bring in, the features you chose, and even things as small as the hardware that are placed on the windows.
