Pairing Window Treatments with Design Styles

No matter your home’s interior design, you want window treatments that pair well with it. We offer an array of window treatments that fit phenomenally within most interior design styles. Work with us to find the right interior design style for your home!  

Traditional Interior Design

Traditional Interior Design favors luxurious fabrics, like silk, velvet, and linen, and bold prints, like damask, plaids, and florals. You’ll find dark woods and deep colors in traditional homes. Roman shades combine timeless elements with modern appeal, making them ideal for those who still love Traditional design. Though drapery is typical in traditional decor, Roman shades offer the elegance of draping fabric without the bulk. The tailored appearance of Roman shades brings a modern touch to traditional design. 

Wood shutters are iconic in Traditional design and can span the spectrum from farmhouse chic to classic decor. Choose a dark wood stain finish for old-school traditional or solid white shutters for a farmhouse chic interior. 

Mid-Century Modern 

Mid-Century Modern design embodies simple, practical styles without sacrificing comfort. You’ll see an emphasis on functionality; organic and geometric shapes and clean lines characterize the movement. This makes roller shades with a geometric print an excellent choice for windows in Mid-Century Modern homes. Their straightforward roll-up/roll-down design and clean lines lean into the more modern aspect of Mid-Century Modern design. However, their various customization options, including fabric and opacity, can tip the scale back toward Mid-Century.

The clean lines of drapery fit the minimalist component of Mid-Century Modern design, but the wrong fabric can make the aesthetic too heavy. Choose lightweight fabric, such as linen or a cotton blend, in a light color to maintain the Mid-Century Modern appeal.

Eclectic Design

The energy of Eclectic design is ideal for those who appreciate having creative freedom in their home’s interior. Eclectic interiors are full of bold colors, patterns, and textures. Working with a neutral base and incorporating colorful accents is a great way to ensure your eclectic space looks intentional and not thrown together.

Cellular shades are a fantastic way to bring texture to your windows with the added benefit of energy efficiency! Layer the shades with bold drapery in a luxe fabric and bold color to elevate the look – a grommet header will polish it off. Hobbled Roman shades in a large print are another excellent window treatment for eclectic design. The plush folds of fabric are dramatic and maximalist, just like an eclectic window treatment should be. 

Contemporary Style

Contemporary homes follow current trends and emphasize the importance of natural light. If your home pays homage to Contemporary design, sheer shades are one of the best window treatments you can choose. Sheer shades are lightweight and have a clean aesthetic. They diffuse sunlight beautifully and ground rooms with even the loudest paint colors.

Metal accents are prevalent in Contemporary decor, so it makes good style sense to incorporate aluminum blinds into your home. Aluminum blinds are sleek, durable, and available in several exciting finishes to add depth and visual interest to your windows.
