Paint has a well-earned reputation as the easiest, quickest and cheapest way to refresh a room. There's something deeply satisfying about the instant gratification and the transformational impact gained from painting the walls in your home. That said, what if I told you that there was actually a quicker, easier and cheaper fix to reimagine your space?

Enter, window treatments.
