The Best Window Coverings For Large WindowsApril 11, 2023
Does your “farmhouse chic” home need new window treatments? From blinds to shades to shutters – you want to make sure your chosen treatments both do their job and match your home’s style. Here’s everything you need to know about choosing treatments for a farmhouse chic style.
The Farmhouse Chic Style
“Farmhouse chic” is both cozy and sophisticated. Taking elements from traditional rustic styles, like barn doors and vintage pieces, it elevates them for a modern feel. It is warmer than minimalism and very cozy, but not dated or cluttered like a straight-up old-timey feel. Farmhouse chic homes have a sophisticated country feel, mixing rustic with contemporary, but always feel welcoming and accessible, from furniture to window treatments.
Which Window Treatments Work Best
Because of this, you want soft, aesthetic window treatments that don’t overpower a room but also don’t feel in stark contrast.
- Plantation shutters are a great choice, as they feel both traditional and contemporary at the same time.
- Roller shades, thanks to them being fabric, feel right at home in a farmhouse chic house. Plus, you can even get them in woven or pleated styles to maximize the coziness!
Which Window Coverings To Avoid
While you don’t necessarily need to avoid these entirely, these window treatments are best used sparingly. For rooms that are heavier on the farmhouse style, they may not be your best option.
- Bare blinds: Blinds are a classic treatment with great functionality. But simply hanging blinds – and not layering them with anything else like drapes or shutters – looks a little sterile against a cozy farmhouse room.
- Grand drapes: Light curtains are great for farmhouse-style homes but you’ll likely want to stay away from rich, thick draperies to avoid a style clash.
