Banish a Drab Room With This Powerful Decorating Element

Is one of your rooms feeling a bit drab? We bet if you focus your design efforts on one spot (the size of which depends on your home's architecture) you can really add some interest and beauty to your entire home. As a matter of fact, it just might be the case that you've either forgotten to decorate this spot in your home entirely, or that you threw something up quickly and never got back to it again. This weekend, pay attention to this decorating element.

This Weekend's Assignment:

Hang, update or clean some window treatments

No matter how big they are, how small they are, what shape they are or how many you have — the windows in your home are IMPORTANT. They let light in. Help you connect to the outside world. We've had you spend weekends cleaning your windows and even improving the view. It's time you focus on a very important decorating element: Framing them!

And by framing them, we mean focusing on your window coverings, of course. This weekend, take the opportunity to do one (or more) of these things to one (or more) of your windows:

1. Add window coverings for a window you've been meaning to get to but haven't yet. Buy or DIY curtains, roman shades and more.

2. Update some sorely needed window treatments (that perhaps are old or were only intended to be temporary).

3. Give your existing window treatments a cleaning (that includes blinds! Vacuuming can do a lot here.)

4. Or add a unique and small detail to existing window treatments. It'll really up the personality of your whole room!
