You didn’t choose the plain white blinds that currently cover your windows, so why should you have to find a way to incorporate them into your personal decor? Take a look at these creative ideas to accent your windows without sacrificing your security deposit.

Curtains without the Rod

When you think curtains, you probably immediately move on for fear of damaging the wall. Well, curtains don’t do the damage, and you may be able to get by without the rod. Command hooks are great for draping cloth over the top of a window. Without any hassle or mess, you just stick the hook onto the wall.

Keep in mind that technology has come a long way. Command hooks are no longer bulky, plastic, and unpleasant to look at. There are more styles than ever, so even lining up a number of hooks along the ceiling and hanging a larger tapestry is a viable and attractive option.

Art above the Window

Another great way to dress up an otherwise drab window is to hang a large painting or canvas horizontally above the window. Allow it to hang slightly over the top of the window as a valance. This will likely require some small finishing nails. However, depending on the canvas, you may be able to get by with command hooks here as well.

Get Creative

Remember, you probably already have a number of items that you can use to dress up a boring window.

  • Colorful scarves
  • Long beaded necklaces
  • Dream catchers
  • Strands of mini lights
  • Ivy or other climbing plants

Make sure that whatever you choose to hang above or around your window is properly supported. If your windows already have blinds, remember that they are not designed to bear weight. Definitely invest in some command hooks or finishing nails if that is the case.
