Are you looking for new ways to decorate the interior of your home this year? Maybe window sills should be the next place you look to. Windows have so much capacity to become a focal point in your home, but are more often than not simply covered up with some blinds and a curtain – which isn’t always bad, but maybe you can mix it up a little.
Whether you want to keep it simple, or are looking for something a little more adventurous, we’ve got you covered. With the help of some Idaho Falls home builders we’ve compiled this fantastic list of ways that you can spruce up your window sill in 2018.
Turn it into a reading nook.
This fun idea can be as simple or complex as you’d like it to be. Whether you want the help of a contractor like Clint Cook, a professional home builder in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, to extend your window sill and build a cute little nook or you simply want to add a bench beneath your window, this is the perfect way to add some variety to your window.
Add a bench, some shelving for books, and pillows to make your window the coziest little reading nook.
Get some plants.
Pick up some cute little potted plants to add to your window sill. Plants remove toxins from the air to literally give you a breath of fresh air. Herbs are great for your kitchen window, and you can simply cut a sprig off whenever you need for cooking. Succulents and flowers that match your home’s interior are another great way to go with this option.
Use decorative bottles or vases.
You can combine this one with flowers or plants, but find yourself some cute glass bottles, vases, or bowls to put in your window sill. Fill them with marbles, rocks, flowers, or if they stand out enough on their own, leave them as they are.
Get artsy with it.
Do you have books, shelf décor, antiques, or anything that would make a great window sill decoration? Mix and match a little bit of everything to create a unique display in your windowsill. If you have a wide window sill with lots of space, this is the perfect opportunity to do something like this with it. It’s basically another shelf just asking to be decorated.
Place some candles on it.
You can never go wrong with candles. Feel like bringing a little more romance or ambiance to your home? Place some candles on your window sill to bring that effect. Of course, only choose this option if you aren’t going to have curtains or blackout roman blinds in the way when you light the candles.
Get creative with the space that your window sill provides and do something unique for your home this year.
