Are your window treatments outdated or just in need of a fresh look? Getting new window treatments is one of the easiest, most cost effective ways to spruce up a room and give it the modern look you’re after. At Blinds Bros., we offer many different types of window treatments in many different materials and colors. Here are four of our favorite modern window treatment ideas to freshen up your home or apartment.
Woven wood shades
Woven wood shades can really transform a room with their exotic look. They are also one of the most eco-friendly window treatment options because they’re not made out of hardwood. They’re made out of bamboo, which is a very fast growing plant that can repopulate quicker than most trees. Because bamboo isn’t as rigid as wood, woven wood shades are very flexible and durable. They are great for providing privacy while diffusing light, and they come in different colors and patterns.
Plantation shutters aren’t a new window treatment, but they are starting to trend again for their classic and elegant design. They are made of wood and are custom made for your windows, no matter the shape or size. Unlike blinds that use cords to adjust them, plantation shutters usually have rods down the middle to tilt the slats. One of the biggest advantages of plantation shutters is they can actually increase the value of your home because they’re built to last for years to come. Plantation shutters have an elegant and fresh look, and they’ll blend in seamlessly in your modern home.
Cellular shades are the perfect modern, energy efficient window treatment for your home. Cellular shades have recently become a popular window treatment option for their classy, modern look. They have the ability to move to the exact spot on the window you want, even right in the middle of the window, and they can become very compact. The cellular shape actually helps your energy bill because the shape traps air around your windows so it traps the hot air in the summer and the cold air in the winter. They can even help with noise reduction as it absorbs sound waves.
Motorized blinds are the most modern window treatment available. They are very easy to use because to raise or lower the blinds, all you need to do is simply touch the button on a remote. You can control one set of blinds at a time if you want a specific amount of light in your room, or you can control all the blinds at once for privacy or maximum sunlight. They look very modern and fresh, and they’ll look great in any home.
