For those looking to decorate their home, sometimes it can be easy to overlook several areas. According to the Calgary Herald, one of the most commonly forgotten places is window coverings, but how one decorates their windows is an important choice to make.

Interior design expert Beej Howey claims that the windows are far down the list for prospective homebuyers, but they should take some priority, as they can have a significant impact on the look and feel of an abode.

"What you're doing is creating the mood for your entire home with the blinds that you purchase, because you're letting the light in and out," Howey told the news source.

Howey added that hanging the appropriate window shades can be a good investment as well. The news provider reports that she advocates selecting ones that can effectively block or keep in heat to save money on energy bills.

Homeowners looking for a way to reduce their energy bill may want to consider hanging honeycomb cellular shades. These window shades contain cells that allow heat to stay inside during the winter, while blocking harsh rays from the sun in the summer.
