How to Dress a Window without Drapes or Blinds

Kitchen Window with grilles & shelves

Drapes and blinds are tried-and-true window decorations that work well with many home interiors. However, sometimes you’d rather not hide the view and let the windows themselves act as a defining design element. When it comes to adding character to your windows, you have options. Here are six popular window dressings for home interiors:

1. Sophisticated Moldings and Casings--These design flourishes give your windows a classic allure without obstructing the view.

2. Shelving--A popular trend with some homeowners is to install shelving along their windows. This allows you to have more storage space without feeling too boxed in.

3. Window Grilles--Grilles create an attractive colonial or diamond pattern on the panes with minimal obstruction of the view.

4. Layered Windows--If you want to decorate your walls without blocking the natural light, try layering your windows with mirrors or paintings. A layered window creates a personalized decorative feel while preserving the sense of openness that sunlight creates.

5. Black or Dark Green Sashes--Your window’s sashes are the parts that hold the glass in place. By painting the sashes black or dark green, you transform your windows into bold yet elegant frames displaying the view to the outdoors like a work of art.

6. Interior Hinged Shutters--Hinged shutters provide several benefits while highlighting your decor. They can offer privacy and help to control light. Shutters add value to your home while saving energy costs by adding a measure of insulation.

Spring Renovation Tips For Your Home

Spring Renovation Tips For Your Home

Window treatments

The obvious solutions are drapes, curtains and wood blinds. They can give each room a new personality and a fresh look from both inside and out. Other great options that are easy and very affordable are window grilles.

Painting projects

The hot color for 2019 according to Pantone, the color expert for designers, is coral. If coral is not your jam there are many other great colors and color combinations that will help make a statement for any room, or for your whole house. Other color options can include your new window grilles, which can be stained or painted to match your décor.

Spring cleaning

Your windows have mostly collected a lot of dirt and grime from the outside winter weather. But if your house has been closed up all winter, like 70% of the US, there is a fair amount of grime collected on the inside as well from cooking, candles, forced air furnace and the fireplace. Window grilles, while adding value and extra personality, are easy to remove and reinstall for window cleaning.

Get your bike ready, start new landscape and yard projects

Now that you have worked hard getting your home in shape for spring, don’t forget to get outside and have fun. Clean that bike chain, and start digging in the garden. Then come back inside and enjoy your fresh, clean house.

Keeping Up With Home Design Trends

Keeping Up With Home Design Trends

Interior design trends change every year. The New Year is still a month away, but bloggers, designers, and stylists are already figuring out what the hot trends of 2019 will be. Trying to stay stylish when trends change so quickly can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to your home. After taking stock of some of the year's upcoming design tendencies, Fixhome found that custom decorative windows and window grilles will always have a place in the home, regardless of where the trends go.


According to HGTV, Benjamin Moore's Metropolitan (gray), Behr's Blueprint, and Sherwin-Williams' Cavern Clay are going to be the top colors of 2019. Meanwhile, Decor Mag is calling "Nightwatch green" the color of the year. Regardless of what color you decide to paint your kitchen, living room, or trim, Fixhome's window grilles can be painted or stained to match.


Pattern trends can be hard to keep up with and tend to cycle in and out quickly. Elle Decor says Ikat and geometric patterns have been overused but florals are in this year. Meanwhile, Decor Mag argues geometric and tribal patterns are still in. Thankfully, choosing a pattern is easy when it comes to window grilles. Not sure if you prefer colonial or diamond patterned grilles? Check out our guide on choosing the right window grille style for your home.


The most consistent advice across all the sources and articles about 2019's interior design trends was to incorporate more greenery into one's living and working spaces. Sometimes this was encouraged through green colored paints or fabrics, but many stylists pointed towards bringing more plants into the home. Succulents may have been a hot trend in 2018, but as Interiors Online writes, plants will never go out of style. That means you can't go wrong with Fixhome's garden planter window, which is the perfect way to bring some green color and life into your home.

Whether you love to keep up with design trends, or prefer timeless design, decorative windows and window grilles will fit in with whatever inspires you. We know one thing for certain: maintaining a finished and comfortable home never goes out of style.
