Homes come in many styles and one with a popular resurgence lately is mid-century modern. What types of window treatments complement it best though? As you decorate your house, from floor to ceiling, keep in mind these best-fitting options.
Mid-century modern homes are very open-concept and work great for minimalistic tastes. Because of this open space and an often minimal design approach, too, these homes can be very easy to maintain as there is very little clutter to clean. That simple approach, too, leaves a lot of room to have fun with window treatments.
What To Keep In Mind
As you are planning your window treatment shopping, you’ll want to think about privacy as well as style. Mid-century modern homes often have large windows, both wide and tall. Will you want to have full-coverage options to maximize privacy? What styles will look good on a large scale? If easy maintenance stays an important factor, will your treatments be easy to clean?
Options For Window Treatments
For the expansive nature of mid-century windows and open-space rooms, you might want to consider sheer roller shades. These coverings are one large sheet of fabric, so they maintain those clean lines of the style. If you opt for sheer material, too, you can maintain some privacy without sacrificing all that gorgeous natural light.
You might also like custom shades. These decorative options add some dimension to open concepts and fit in nicely with the mid-century design aesthetic. You can even select the perfect color to match your scheme.
Long curtains are also a great option. They add dimension and interest to a room without being too loud or competing with the flow of the room.
