If you’ve decided to opt for a more modern style of window treatment, you have more artistic license to be more daring and quirkier in your choices. There are plenty of options for window treatments available today to suit almost every interior design need and function, that you can be assured that you needn’t let the function of your window treatment be sacrificed in the name of interior style. There are many modern options available that will tick every single box for you.
A good starting point is to allow yourself to look at more daring and contrasting hues. Contrast against your room’s colour palette for curtains, blinds, or even valances, can make your curtains stand out and give your room an interesting and artful look. You don’t need to be completely wild with your colour choice, since muted contrasts and even greyscale and monochrome directions will have a major impact on the room and the presence of your windows.
With advances in technology and more intelligent interior design and storage space, we’re embracing more unusual shaped homes and making the most of every corner and crevice. This means that windows, instead of the traditional rectangular shapes of decades past, are becoming more frequent parts of sloping ceilings and walls to make sure that we don’t lose out on any valuable sun and light from all angles of the home. Specialised blinds for these kinds of windows are no longer a niche market, and widely available on the mainstream market in a huge choice of colour and materials, so that your modern home can continue its pattern with matching modern window treatments. And with top-down-bottom-up blinds becoming a more popular option, more retailers are offering customers the chance for even more style variations and control of light and heat inside their homes. Add a motor to your blinds to make operation effortless and future-proof your window treatments. Honeycomb blinds are another innovative and modern window treatment growing in popularity. With a lightweight and cellular structure, honeycomb blinds will insulate a home by preventing warm air from escaping, whilst looking modern and cool at the same time.
Minimal style for maximum effect
One trend that is utterly modern is minimalism. In varying levels depending in your style and dedication, sticking to minimal window treatments like horizontal blinds and roller blinds, and steering away from busy patterns and frills of curtains and traditional valances, will help you achieve a seamless and striking style with the help of a modern window treatment.
Simple and secluded
A fast way to give your windows a minimal, stylish, and modern window treatment that increases privacy is to add a window film to your windows. Available in reflective and frosted options, and with specialist colour tinges, applying a simple film can be a cost effective way to give your home a contemporary twist and a modern window treatment.
