Modern Window Treatments

Modern Window Treatments

Modern home design, including window treatments is a great way to incorporate design and aesthetic features into your windows. Window treatments provide privacy, help block outside light from entering and also add a decorative detail to your interior. Depending on how much light you want entering your room, there are many different window treatment options available to suite your needs.

Modern window treatments are often associated with clean, simple lines and many times are eco-friendly. Roller shades are a great example of clean, simple window treatments. With the minimal look, this type of window treatment provides an aesthetically appealing solution. Because roller shades can be customized in a wide variety of fabric options, many interior designers and homeowners are choosing roller shades. Roller shades have quickly become the preferred window covering of modern interiors, and now that manufacturers have started offering “green” fabric options, there are even more options available.

Since many modern interiors are associated with clean, simple and straight lines, another window treatment option available would be folding shades. Folding shades can be designed to complement any interior. There are simple, motorized shade systems and manual systems. Folding shades can be in the form of accordion-style pleated shades (also referred to as honeycomb shades) or they can be Roman shades. Roman shades are designed to block out the sun, but when opened they stack up evenly. Most people are familiar with honeycomb shades or cellular shades are elegant and very energy efficient. These window treatments are very durable and when opened, they also stack in an accordion-like fashion.

One last type of window treatment used in many modern interiors is drapery systems. Draperies operate in a vertical direction, still offering solar control, but in a different way than most horizontal window treatments. Drapery systems can be simple and clean, like most modern interiors, but they can offer the final style touch that any room needs. There are many different styles of draperies that can be customized for different designs.
