Window treatments and window shades are two of the best and easiest ways to personalize your home. Whether you are remodeling your kitchen or looking for new window shades in your bathroom, here are five of our best tips for customizing your window treatments.
Minimalism is in for every room of the home, and window treatments aren’t exempt from the minimalist trend. Say goodbye to heavy and bulky window shades and replace them with simple and plain shades. Looking to cut down on the fabric that you use? Choose an upholstered cornice for your window treatments, instead of the more traditional options.
Light and Bright
Natural light is an essential element of every room in your home, and the window treatments that you choose have a direct effect on the amount of natural light that is let into your home. Pleated window shades can allow you more privacy and plenty of light so you will enjoy the best of both worlds and not need to reach for a light switch every time you enter the room.
Pick Modern Colors
When choosing fabric for your window treatments, don’t rely on outdated colors. Instead, browse contemporary shades that will complement your home and make the room feel more modern. Terra cotta, greens, blacks, and golds are all currently very popular and still understated and minimalist. You can also mix subtle fabric prints for a fun twist on window treatments with a lot of personality and without too much eye strain.
Roman window shades are gaining popularity every year and homeowners are experimenting with different textures for a new modern take on the classic style. Purchase Roman window shades in rattan, bamboo, or other natural fibers for a natural feeling with visual interest and simplicity.
Add in Some Curves
Kitchens and bathrooms are often full of straight and simple lines, so why not use window treatments to add in some curves? Arching a valance is a simple way to add in a curve. You could also consider a curved cornice, a box-pleated valance with a curved bottom, or a window shade that falls into beautiful inverted pleats.
