For a modern take on window treatments, contrasting color-blocked curtains work to create a distinctive, warm look, and go well paired with just about any design style, from traditional to the transitional.

Look for contrasting drapes that boast a strong color juxtaposed with a warm neutral for a stylishly layered look with ease. And as contrasting window treatments lend a modern spirit to any room, pair them with minimal fittings for a clean and polished look, and go for colors you know you won’t tire of quickly.



A stunning alternative to traditional window treatments, there’s plenty of innovative window decals that will help conceal your interior while making a beautiful statement. Just look at how much more expensive and unique the stained-glass looking window decals make the simple windows featured above look. Plus, they’re much less expansive than regular drapes and are easy to install.

Look for something similarly unusual or unexpected and you’ll be certain that no one around has similar window treatments like yours.



For an unexpected take on window treatments, opt for a bold and vividly printed batik or space-dyed fabric for a truly expressive note in any room, from eclectic to modern. These also work well in clean minimal spaces as they work to lend it much needed character and play.




Another route to instant drama and heightened everyday glamor, floor-to-ceiling windows will work to make a room appear grander, more expansive, and expensive. And their timeless appeal makes them window treatments well worth the investment and they work especially well at making even the smallest of corners appear larger.



If you can’t find the picture-perfect curtains for your room off the shelf, consider investing in custom window treatments that will be exclusive to your home. The perfect color, style, and pattern are just an order away and are certain to become a much needed finishing touch in any room in your home. The great thing about custom window treatments is that they will fit your dimensions perfectly.

And when looking for window treatments for sliding glass doors, custom styles are often the best as you need coverings that will be installed to stay secured for the long run.



White window frames are traditional, but if you want to go for a more dramatic feel and something a little out of the ordinary, then how about black window frames for modern window treatment ideas? Frame them with light colored curtains to balance the dark, dramatic shade of your window frame. Black frames also help to make printed, patterned, and bold colored window treatments pop while adding balance thanks to their dark, handsome hue.






There is something comforting and warm about a country check and there’s no exception when it comes to window treatment ideas. They look great in a neutral and natural room, adding to the

cozy charm with a playful check. You can choose muted shades or something a little bolder, depending on your tastes.

Our interior designers were quick to point out that that the room featured above smartly displays plaid panels only halfway up for a needed visual break and a glimpse of the outdoors.




These are great for covering expansive window areas and are the perfect window treatments for sliding glass doors. Choose a light color to allow some light to pass through and opt for alternating

colored panels for something a little different. If you choose multiple colors, they boast an added bonus of looking great when they are drawn back.

And in black, they lend a room a studied elegance and cool allure that’s hard not to admire.
