Exposed brick and metal are hallmarks of industrial design, but you may need help finding window treatments to match the stripped-down aesthetic. That’s where we come in. Let our designers lead the way to window treatments that look great against a backdrop of exposed brick and metal. 

Custom Drapery

Smooth, luscious fabric looks incredible next to the rough surface of exposed brick. When working with industrial interior design, it’s crucial to bring softness to the space using fabric accents, like rugs, throw blankets, or drapery

Drapery offers unmatched room-darkening power in rooms with oversized windows. Hang your drapery just below the ceiling in a room to make it look higher and give the illusion of a larger industrial space. We suggest using lighter-weight fabrics, as heavier materials can take away from industrial interior design’s foundation of practicality and minimalist style, and heavier fabrics can distract from those open, airy spaces. 

Roller Shades

The sleek profile of roller shades makes them an ideal match for exposed brick and metal. Available in a variety of fabrics from luxe fibers to refined weaves, contrasting textures of the shades and brick bring immense visual interest to a room. Roller shades are available in sheer fabrics that soften the abundant natural light that industrial spaces are known for. They’re also an excellent way to maintain the polished aesthetic of steel or dark metal. 

Roller shades are a user-friendly window treatment with high style and performance, making them a fantastic addition to an industrial space. Increase your shades’ functionality with an optional light control system that nests an opaque liner behind a sheer front shade. A dual-roller design is another way to enjoy flexibility when determining the amount of light that you have at any given time.

Cellular Shades

Cellular shades bring texture, softness, and movement to your windows. They offer outstanding insulation, which is essential in rooms with oversized space or industrial-style windows. Cellular shades absorb noise, giving you a more tranquil home in even the busiest areas of Chicago. The top-down/bottom-up design brings a modern touch to industrial interior design and gives you precise control over incoming sunlight and privacy. An innovative optional blackout system uses unique side channels to deflect and absorb 50% more unwanted than standard cellular shades. 

Vertical Blinds

Many industrial-style homes feature expansive windows that require a specific approach when it comes to coverings. Vertical blinds with textured metal vanes are impeccable for rooms with abundant metal accents. They bring depth and movement to interiors without adding excess ornamentation, which is an industrial interior design element. Vertical blinds are a sensible but attractive choice if your room has sliding glass doors or oversized windows.
