Selecting window treatment color shouldn’t be an afterthought — this decision has significant power over the final look of the room in question. Depending on your personal preferences and the style you’re working to achieve, window treatment color may range from plain white to muted gray to bold colors.
Want to know how to pick the right window treatment color for each type of material?
If you’ve decided to invest in wood blinds, you’ve made a good choice. Wood is a long-lasting, beautiful window treatment material that adds value to your home.
Are you looking at faux wood blinds? Those are also attractive and versatile. But with both options, choosing the finish can be challenging.
First, take a close look at the wood already in the room. If you have wood floors, wood trim or any wood accents, consider how the window treatments finish will mesh with the other wood. If you pick a light maple color, will it look out of place in a room with dark cherry hardwood floors and trim?
It’s OK not to match wood to wood — different wood finishes can complement each other — but consider it carefully before you spend a significant sum investing in wood blinds.
Aluminum or Vinyl Blinds
Aluminum or vinyl blinds come in every color you can imagine. Your decision on color will come down to contrast.
Are you interested in having the blinds blend into the background? Then match your blind color to the wall color, so the trim continues to stand out.
Would you like the blinds to accentuate the contrast between the trim and the wall? Then pick a color that resembles the trim color.
If you select standard white blinds, make sure you closely match the shade. Some whites are based in blue shades and some in yellow. Choosing the wrong tint can create a clash of color that won’t be pleasing to the eye.
Fabric Window Treatments
Roller shades, cellular shades and any other product made of fabric also comes in a wide range of colors, and the same rules hold true. The only difference is that fabric shades allow you to go beyond just selecting window treatment color. You could opt for a shade with a pattern or design as well.
If you purchase a patterned shade, make sure the colors included in the design match the colors already in the room. If you pick a solid color, choose a shade to match the wall if you’d like it to blend in, or a color present in your other design accents in order for the shade to stand out.
