Working from home has shown everybody that being creative with your time and space is the only possible way to stay sane amongst all of the Zoom meetings. Here are some affordable, easy ways to spice up your window display that can also come in handy as a virtual meeting background.
Privacy screens have been in and out of style almost every other decade, and this is the official declaration that they are back! This is an easy way to add not only a tall decoration to a room that could make it seem larger but also an easily movable piece of furniture that has two functions. By still keeping the look of an open window and natural sunlight, privacy screens also give you the option of closing that window off and blocking the various distractions of the outside world.
DIY Stained Glass
One of the best ways to add a pop of color to a window is to do a variation of stained glass. This could look like glass, square film with various vibrant colors that will illuminate a room when the sun shines through. Another simple way would be to line rainbow glass bottles on the window sill, which could also double as an indoor herb garden. If you wish to instead have little rainbows illuminating throughout an entire room then going with a rainbow film sticker for the window would be the best option. This film plays beautifully with the sunlight and sends an abundance of prisms throughout your home.
Any window that receives proper sunlight could benefit from a hanging herb garden. Not only is this convenient for cooking, but it also allows for an easy and sustainable solution to spicing up a window. The best option for this display is for it to hang over a sink in order to easily catch and clean any falling soil or dripping water. Also, this idea could also be used in a home office as a succulent garden due to their need for direct sunlight. These not only brighten a room but also make it feel more open and cleaner due to its earthy nature.
There are many different household items that could potentially be transformed into a one-of-a-kind curtain. Tablecloth linens could be used to block the sun from the upper part of a window but leave some natural light coming through at the bottom. They also could be easily changed to match the colors of the season. Macrame hangings are also very popular right now and could be used as curtains instead of just a simple wall hanging.
All you need is some nylon cord and practice tying knots to create the perfect, boho curtains. Speaking of bohemian style, a ribbon garland either displayed at the top of a window or made to look like curtains could easily customize your home’s look at a cheap cost. Simply knot your selection of ribbons to a cord or garland to bring color and pattern to your window display.
A stenciled sign could be a great way to cover the top half of the window and add some extra decoration. Any message or picture can be displayed on this sign to possibly make the idea of working from home more enjoyable.
There are many ways you can make your home office feel comfortable and exciting while not having to change too much about it. A simple DIY project could help spruce up your space and bring you motivation throughout the day.
