Urban Modern Window TreatmentsUrban modern style is a popular interior design style. Many associate weathered brick walls, draping botanicals, and large exposed windows with this design style. Urban modern is a relaxed and comforting style that has developed into a casual trend. Options for creative window treatments are endless, allowing individuals to express their personal interest through design. Bold prints, natural shades, and motorized systems are some of the many ways to create a causal urban feel in your home.

Puddling Bold Drapes

Drapes that puddle or sweep the floor help create a relaxed look and feel. Puddling refers to drapes that extend fifteen inches onto the floor. To draw beauty to your window treatment, use drapes that have bold asymmetrical or geometric patterns. For a bold aesthetic, use colors such as browns, teals, purples, and oranges because warm colors will help your space feel cozier. On the contrary, use colors such as lavender, periwinkle, and gray to create a soothing design.

Roman Shades

Do you want to show off your beautiful window treatments? The flat roman style is the perfect option for displaying distinct styles and patterns on smaller windows. These shades interweave with one continuous piece of fabric that hangs flat in front of the window. When drawn, the shades showcase the pattern and color of your material, providing a simple and casual look. Cultural pieces such as Dream catchers and Ganeshes are very popular with roman shades. Flat roman shades consist of fabric panels horizontally seamed about 8-10 inches apart. The pleating allows the shade to stack concisely and presents a more structured and tailored look. Homeowners can chose from many fabrics such as linen, cotton, or burlap. Can’t decide which fabric to use? Truthfully, any fabric will bring incredible style and dimension to any window.

Modern Convenience for Blinds & Shades

For spaces with large windows or high ceilings, motorized blinds and shades are a great option. Motorized blinds and shades work well in rooms used frequently, and are safe for children and pets. For example, motorized shades can help you prep the living room to watch a movie or gather with friends.

Are you worried about how motorized shades will blend with the rest of your space? You can customize your shades in a wide array of colors to best fit into your space. The most popular colors are taupe, brown, blue, and green. Furthermore, motorized blinds and shades come in two different styles: motorized lift and motorized tilt.

Motorized lifts allow you to raise or lower the entire window covering by remote. Motorized lifts are also compatible with pleated, roman, and natural shades. Meanwhile, motorized tilts are for horizontal blinds. This option allows you to control the amount of light in a room. The motorized tilt option pairs well with wooden blinds.

Natural Shades

Transforming the look and feel of your room only takes one simple change. Adding bamboo or wooden shades to your window treatments will complement and blend with any furniture or decor. Bamboo is highly praised because of its eco-friendly properties. Bamboo is also an ideal solution because it adds both an ethic ambience and charm to any interior space. Bamboo shades come unlined, which is perfect if you prefer a lot of sunlight during the day. However, if you prefer less light, consider a privacy or blackout liner.

Wooden blinds are durable and lightweight, making them ideal for large windows. Most wooden blinds consist of timber and oak, and come in a wide variety of stains to match hand-rubbed furniture, molding or flooring. Finally, these blinds are easy to clean and attract less dust than metal.

Why Urban Modern Style?

Window treatments serve more purpose than regulating sunlight and temperature. In fact, they direct and impact the mood of each room. With an increase in the demand for a modern urban style, selecting the right materials for your window treatment is essential. The modern urban style can help welcome, nurture, and compliment our personalities.
