window styling guide

Many homeowners choose to dress their windows using treatments like curtains, blinds, and fabric valances. It can be tricky to do so, however, especially if taking into consideration the existing decor, the sunlight entering the home, and privacy. This led to some going with alternative window treatments that don’t just save money but also lend personality to the whole interior.


Woodbridge Home Exteriors, your local source of siding and windows, discusses various ways you can style your own windows apart from treatments.

Old-Style Privacy Screen

Large bay windows look good as they are, but they can’t be dressed with just curtains or blinds. A privacy screen that resembles the style of farm gates provides for a rustic charm that works in any traditional home style.

Tablecloth Treatments

Get creative when it comes to window treatments with table linens or any textile available. Take advantage of colors as you arrange cloth napkins and hang them from a rod using curtain clips. The resulting appearance is a fun and easy alternative to the traditional valance.

Window Shelving

Replacement windows, especially those set above the kitchen sink, don’t require curtains or drapes. For these, a set of glass shelves on the top part of the windows would make sense. Not only does it satisfy the need for privacy but it also showcases the room’s decor.


A well-dressed window can still look fancy even without curtains or drapes. A set of ribbons of different designs, for instance, can be knotted over a cord or dowel, forming a garland that serves as a makeshift curtain.

At Woodbridge Home Exteriors, we offer our exclusive Woodbridge Classic line of replacement windows, which are carefully crafted to ensure their high performance. Each unit comes with triple-pane glass and other energy-saving features to help minimize heat transfer, leading to a comfortable indoors and better energy efficiency.
