When it comes to decorating your home, it’s easy to turn to décor items such as wall hangings, throw pillows, and fun furniture pieces to add some style and flair to your space. Many people tend to overlook the not-so-fun accessories that can also be leveraged to modernize and update a room – namely, window treatments. The great news is that there are loads of modern window treatments available that you can utilize to help bring your home’s design together.
In this post, we’ve highlighted some trendy, modern window treatments that you should consider when it comes time to upgrade your space!
Add Some Colour
Gone are the boring, beige blinds that you likely had in your house growing up. Instead, people have started to use their window treatments as a way of infusing some colour into their design palette. While you can stick with a simple, neutral coloured shade for privacy, framing them with bold, colourful curtains is a great way to update the look of a room without having to completely change out every single window covering.
If you’re really looking to get creative, consider finding a fabric that contains colours or a pattern you love and create curtains made from it. You can even use any leftover fabric to create some throw pillows that can help tie the entire space together.
Mix Your Textures
When it comes to choosing the right window covering for your space, you aren’t limited to just one style. With so many different window treatment options available, it could be a great opportunity to introduce some textures into a room that you might not have normally opted for. Rattan blinds are a great addition to any space if you’re looking to add privacy while also allowing some light to shine through. They also allow you to introduce some natural elements into a space, which can be a great addition to a boho-inspired décor palette.
Another option for adding some more texture into a space would be to opt for a textured curtain or drape, maybe a velvet or other boldly patterned print that will make a bold statement.
Adding built-in window coverings can be a great way to easily control how much light and privacy you want in a room. If they are built to match the style of the window frame, they look like a continuation of the walls, windows and ceiling and can be a great way to update your space. Plus, keeping built-in blinds or shutters a light, neutral colour will help ensure that your interior spaces don’t feel closed off and cramped when the built-ins are closed.
Alternatively, if you’re wanting to let in natural light while still maintaining privacy, consider adding a built-in that only covers the lower half of your window. This will allow light to stream in from the upper half, while the lower half built-ins can be closed to give you that added privacy you’re looking for.
Whether you’re looking for a modern window treatment to update your space or are looking for a window covering that is going to make a statement and make a room pop, there are lots of great, unique options to choose from.
