As far as window treatments go, bare blinds are probably the least appealing to the eye. They’re a bit harsh and tacky looking, whereas curtains might soften the look of a room or painted-on treatments might make your decor seem fresher. Unfortunately, most likely because this is a universal truth, there are typically blinds pre-installed into most apartments and houses.
If you’re sick of staring at ugly blinds and you want a change, you’re not alone! The video blogger behind Engineer Your Space, Isabelle Larue, is all about making changes to your home that you can do yourself, and that counts fixing up unsightly blinds.
Isabelle hated the look of her own vertical blinds, but she needed to keep them in the kitchen, where they block blinding sunlight from sneaking in. Unable to get rid of them, she instead decided to tweak the blinds so she could enjoy the look of her space without taking away their intended purpose.
Luckily, she was kind enough to share the entire process on this EYSpace video so that anyone in this situation can update their windows the same way she did hers. This is actually a very quick, easy-to-follow DIY, and it’s one that will completely change the look of your home.
