INTERIOR DESIGN IDEAS: ADDING WINDOW CASING

The great part about design is that sometimes simple details can make a huge impact.  One element that often gets overlooked is "dressing" up your windows.  Adding window treatments is definitely a great way to do this but sometimes just the addition of window casings is all you need to give the polished look you are seeking.

Adding window casing is an inexpesive (relatively) and can be done on your own (if you own a miter saw) or by hiring a handy man.  

Here are some pictures showcasing the impact of window casings.

The casing provides a stunning detail in this kitchen and provides a clean edge to run the backsplash tile into.

 I love the way the dark casings frame this soft roman shade



We are in the process of adding casings to our windows.  Most of them are finished we just haven't painted them yet.  It only took a few hours and has made a big difference!

I like your "Before and After" photos. It appears that window casings really do make a huge difference! I really love that kitchen photo.
