Window Treatment Ideas According To Decor Style

If you're looking for a fast and easy way to instantly update any room in your home, purchasing new window treatments may be the solution. There are so many different types on the market that you'll have no problem matching them to your personal decor style. 

While you can stick to basic white blinds, consider going with window treatments that coordinate with the overall look of your home, or just a particular room, such as the den. Purchasing window coverings that match a particular design style or theme, such as an English garden theme, will give the space a cohesive look. 

Window treatments tend to become the focal point of a room, so pick ones that make a big impact and convey your personal style. If you're redecorating your home on a tight budget, you'll have no problem finding coverings that won't break the bank.

Here are some window treatment ideas according to specific decor styles:

1. Rustic 

If your home has a rustic feel, or you're decorating your woodsy cabin, you can't go wrong with natural wood blinds. They're available in a wide range of sizes to fit any type of window, and you can also have them custom-fit if needed. 

Wood blinds typically feature slats that are easy to adjust for privacy and the desired amount of daylight. The blinds are generally offered in a variety of wood shades, from light oak to dark mahogany, so you can choose the color that best matches your decor. 

There are also realistic-looking faux wood blinds on the market if you need a more affordable option. For eco-friendly homes, go for blinds constructed with bamboo, a renewable resource. 

2. Modern 

There is a wide variety of window treatment options available for those with modern homes. To give any room in your home a sleek, contemporary look, stick with drapes and shades in the monotone colors of white, cream, clay, pewter, and heather grey. Choose drapes made with high-quality fabric and minimal details. If you want patterned drapes, geometric shapes look fresh and clean.

You can also go with metal blinds for an ultra-contemporary warehouse feel. Aluminum blinds are available in both matte and shiny finishes, depending on your preference. You can also find metal blinds in shades of white, black, and grey if that's more your style. 

Cordless woven blinds, which let in just the right amount of light while also providing privacy, operate via a pulley system. With no cords, strings, or wands, the blinds have a minimalistic appearance.
