The Uplift is a monthly series in which our Style & Trends Editor Charlotte Olby uncovers the best decor to bring joy to your home. She consults our experts and picks through thousands of pieces from the biggest designers and retailers to bring you the very best.

Summer is upon us, and with that comes the natural need to throw those windows and doors open in search of sunlight and a gentle breeze. So it makes sense that switching out your window treatments when the warmer weather starts to hit is an excellent way to get your home summer-ready.

And the editors at Homes & Gardens agree. Summer is all about bringing the outdoors in. Lightweight, airy fabrics such as sheer bamboo blinds or linen drapes can replace heavier winter materials, allowing sunlight to filter through and brighten your rooms. They can really set the tone of a room, provide privacy, and control natural light, making window treatments a versatile and impactful addition to any space.

Personally, I am remodeling and have curtains and blinds to source for just about every room in my home. I'm on a personal mission to find window treatments to shop this June that deliver on style and quality and that are purse-friendly without compromising on those two key attributes. So I've taken on hours of research to source my top picks.

Here, I've tapped into the expert minds of the H&G editors to help me find the very best curtains and blinds out there. Whether you're looking for something soft, subtle, and neutral, a trend-led cafe curtain, or perhaps a more statement-making drape, there's a perfect option for every aesthetic below. Here's what we found.

Whether you love a simple blind or prefer to make a statement at your windows, there's surely something to suit your style here. From luxury, trend-led buys from Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, and Lulu & Georgia to more function-first and budget-friendly picks from Wayfair and Amazon, our editors have used their years of shopping and interiors knowledge to bring you an edit of the best. Happy shopping!
