A simple way to modernize your home is by changing your window decor. Clean and simple window decor adds warmth to your home and is achieved with wooden shades or blinds. Wood always adds warmth to any room, and it is versatile, mixing with many styles. Wood can be hung from windows alone, or paired with curtains, swag or valance. While natural wood offers unique color and grain, painted wooden shades can give a room a classic and modern motif.
Pairing Wooden Shades with Valances
If you like the idea of blending the room's color scheme into your window decor along with the warmth of wood, a good window treatment is a combination of wooden window shades and valances. This combination is ideal for large windows or window groupings. You can use the shades to help a room stay cooler in the warmer months without having the sun fade your fabric. For an airier feel, pair wooden shades with translucent or sheer curtains on either side of each window.
Using Wooden Shades in the Bedroom
Wooden shades can really update a bedroom, especially when paired with curtains. The shades deliver a natural look, matching with other pieces of furniture, such as your bed frame, headboard or wardrobes. Another option is to use contrasting wooden shades paired with floor-length curtains that match your duvet or comforter. For a more Scandinavian feel, choose wooden shades or blinds in natural wood colors to match the room’s furniture. This look is perfect for an infant's nursery. Add matching furniture to complete the baby's natural setting.
Wooden Shades with Bright Curtains in the Kitchen
Brighten up your kitchen with natural wood shades paired with floor-length or window-length curtains in vivid shades, such as teal or lime green. These brightly-colored curtains will contrast a more conservative paint colour on the wall and bring some life into an outdated kitchen. For some added oomph, you can hang the blinds about a foot from the top of the window to bring extra light into the kitchen interior. Draw back the curtains on each side with curtain hooks or stays.
