When thinking about the kind of window treatments you want in your home, many people make their decision based on the look and feel of the room. If your décor is more rustic, you might opt for a window treatment that reflects that, while a more modern design might call for a sleeker window treatment. If you find yourself gravitating towards modern window treatments for your home, you’ve come to the right place!
We’ve highlighted some modern window treatments for your home that will help elevate your space and take it to the next level!
Modern Window Treatments: Wooden Blinds
Many modern home designs tend to lean towards clean lines and very neutral colour palettes, but bringing natural elements into the space through window treatments is a great way to warm up a room without losing the modern look and feel. Using earthy colours and natural textures is a great way to bring an element of the outdoors inside. Wood blinds are a great window treatment option, as they come in a wide range of colours and textures, and can blend in with almost any décor. If you’re looking for a real hardwood window treatment, the Parkland® Wood Blinds by Hunter Douglas are a great option and come in woods like oak, cherry, or basswood.
While modern designs are often associated with neutral colours, you can also bring modern elements into your home through the use of patterns and colour. Add some personality to a neutral space by tossing some colourful throw pillows on your couch and pairing them with a patterned curtain in the same colours and tones. Bold patterns and colours can seem overwhelming, but starting with something simple like a patterned, bold curtain is a great way to test the waters and see how it transforms your space. Keeping a neutral paint colour on the walls gives you more freedom to play around with colours and patterns in your furniture and accessories and is the perfect way to give a room some personality.
If you’re looking to maximize the sleek feel of your modern home without sacrificing your privacy, then roller shades might be the perfect window treatment for you. They can be installed to be hidden in window frames or shade pockets, which helps keep a space looking clean and sleek. Available in a variety of different colours, roller shades provide you with lots of different options, whether you want them to blend in with the walls for a monochromatic look or provide a space with some contrast. The Hunter Douglas Design Studio™ Roller Shades are a great way to give a room a minimal aesthetic while still providing you with privacy.
Whether you’re looking to refresh your space to give it a more modern feel or are simply looking to update the window treatments in your modern home, these suggestions are a great place to start when choosing the right window treatments for your space.
