Paint And Beautify Wooden Sash Windows

By Zara Mazur Colwell

Painting and decorating wooden sash windows can completely change the look of your room. This is one of the easiest ways to decorate and can be done very inexpensively. With a little elbow grease, your home will instant transform into bright, clean dwelling that you will never want to leave.

A Style to Suit Your Taste

There are limitless decoration choices available when changing the look of your home. Deciding the style, color, texture, and overall design can be intimidating. Before you decide to pull the plug on the project before you even start, do a little background work and the venture will seem more manageable. It will also prevent forced decisions in the store that you may live to regret for years to come.

There are dozens of decorator books and magazines available that can inspire you in directions you always dreamed of, but never thought possible. These publications are stacked with stunning images that you can recreate. Also check new building developments in your locale. They are often decorated to the nines and can spark your imagination in an entirely new direction.

It’s important to think about the entire house or apartment when decorating your windows. For example, if two separate rooms face the same direction, they should receive the same window treatment to maintain visual balance. So, keep in mind the overall balance with color, texture, and style.

Now that you’ve decided on the look of your home, you will still need to examine other considerations. The next item on your list should be your budget for the project. You can spend a boat load of money in a small decorator’s enclave that will cater to your every whim. They can even customize window treatments exactly to your taste. But you will pay for the privilege. For those with lighter wallets, try a large retailer. They offer a good selection at reasonable prices. But, remember you’ll have to do the work on your own.

Doing the Prep Work

Decorative elements can be beautiful, but it takes messy work to get there. Paint can spill or splatter on furniture and other exposed valuables. Before you pop off the lid, remove everything you can from the room, and cover the rest. Place painter’s tape on the glass panes of windows and other edges that you want to protect. Place a drop cloth across the floor to cover the entire walkway. Also remember to protect your eyes and lungs with the right gear. You are more important than anything else in the room.

This job can be as easy or as complicated as you want to make it. In any case, make sure you leave enough time to complete the work. For those planning to entertain visitors, you will want the project to be completed before they arrive. Begin with the paint. This will immediately make the room look clean and fresh. Plan to leave at least twenty-four hours for the paint to dry completely. Never hang curtains or blinds if the paint is still tacky. The fabric will cling to the surface. So, regardless if you decide to hire someone else for the job, or go the DIY route, painting and decorating wooden sash windows will make an enormous change to your living space.

upgrade the look and feel of your windows by making use of a sash window restoration company. Sash window repairs not only keep the weather out, they make your home appear more attractive.
