Ideas from Holly Cozens on how to give your windows & doors a make-over
Doors and windows remain a constant whatever your home may be, from luxurious bay windows framing a gorgeous sea view to a simple front door adorning a quaint country cottage. Some accessories are as practical as they are decorative such as heavy-lined curtains in winter or numerals and signs to distinguish your property from the rest.
There are plenty of additional little touches you can apply to put your own unique style on an otherwise standard feature. Choose ornate doorknobs for a subtle change from the ordinary, or a new curtain rail complete with embellishings for a look away from the norm.
Since items such as door mats are considered useful in a household, why not dress them up a bit by purchasing one to suit your lifestyle, whether you are all about bright patterns or err on the side of traditional with a conventional ‘welcome’. Door stops can also be used to convey style combined with necessity, once considered slightly uncool, as they are making a comeback in most popular home departments.
However you decide to beautify your windows and doors this season, be assured that there is a world of choice out there for anyone wishing to bring a bit of variation to their home.
