Sometimes we fall in love with a home that needs a little extra security, and instead of depleting the beauty of our homes with jail-like window bars, some home owners have found a stylish alternative. These decorative — yet effective window bars — are a great addition to any home that needs a little extra protection.
• 1 A sunburst design covers all 3 windows and looks great.
• 2 The sunburst design looks also works well when covering one window.
• 3 This leaf design blends in with all of the beautiful trees lining the street.
• 4 Sunburst mixed with geometric shapes makes for a great contrast.
• 5 I love the color green on these and they are still effective even when only covering half of the window.
• 6 My personal favorite; these window coverings are made from what looks to be railroad nails. Super innovative and certainly effective.
