Spruce up Your Home with DIY Curtains this Spring

It’s super easy to achieve a fresh new look for your room this spring by making stylish DIY curtains that will transform your windows.

Curtains and blinds can transform any window or door from drab to fab in a matter of minutes (you could also replace your windows with dazzling new uPVC ones).  Windows are the focal point of any room and the first place a guest will look once entering your home; so of course, you want to make a good impression!

To celebrate DIY day, we’ve pulled together some great ways to create your own curtains and blinds, so you’ll never need to buy curtains again! Think about the money you could save by investing that bit of extra time in creating your own, plus you can put your own bespoke spin on your home and style up your interior! You could even be really environmentally friendly and recycle your old bed sheets or tablecloth (too far?)

From stapled and unlined curtains to classic roman blinds we’ve got something for everyone. With simple and easy instructions aimed at beginners, you’ll have your windows looking great before you know it.
