The windows in your home are your connection to the outside world, and how you choose to dress them speaks volumes about your interior design style. Leaving them uncovered is a sleek, modern look for those who live in wooded or isolated areas. But for those of us who have neighbors, sidewalks and streets just a few steps away, that isn’t really an option. If curtains are too fussy for your minimalist furnishings and blinds are too blah for your modern taste, plenty of alternatives are available. Here are some modern window treatment ideas to protect your privacy while showing off your style.
If youre one of those really creative types of people, then custom window coverings can really be a great tool as they allow you to be as creative as you want to be. Take for example that you have some couches or chairs that you really like the pattern of, you can easily take that pattern and make yourself some custom window coverings to match them. You dont even have to liken the pattern to your furniture, for instance if you have a piece of clothing that you like the fabric on, you could easily match that.
Many people consider window treatments as finishing touches to the rooms decor, and usually pay little or no attention to this interior detail. However, window treatments should never be neglected, as they play an important part in emphasizing the individual character of the place. Window curtains truly stand out in any well decorated room. They add that extra pinch of style and panache to a house.
If you love the look of clean edges but lack the funds for custom cornices, you can still have a beautiful window without any soft goods at all by painting the window’s mullions, frame and sill instead of dressing it with curtains. Any DIYer with a steady hand and some masking tape can paint a window, and the color possibilities are endless. Try a bold pop of color to highlight the view, but for best resale value, choose a dark brown or black color for a chic look.
