Need Ideas for Ugly Windows

New windows are not in the budget, but ours need a makeover. Our living room widows are silver aluminum circa 1985 that are beginning to show their age. They face the West - great for heating up the house on a cold summer day - and measure 36"across by 30"long. We have been using white horizontal 1" blinds with sheers and thermal curtains. We're thinking maybe vertical blinds? Any suggestions?

Re: Need Ideas for Ugly Windows

Blinds, shutters and other window treatments could help.

Maybe what you need is to replace the trim around the window, the sill and apron to give it a fresh look until you can replace the windows.
