Get These Simple Window Treatments For Austin

January 21, 2022

Have you ever seen a window dressed with some dramatic drapery that it turned into the focal point of the room? Or tried to raise a blind just for it to skew to one side or the other no matter which string you tried? Ornate or complicated window shades are overwhelming and bothersome. Most Austin homeowners prefer simple window treatments such as stylish interior shutters, minimalist roller shades, and trendy cellular shades.

So try these simple window treatment ideas in your Austin home and say goodbye to challenging drapes and blinds.

Choose Simple Interior Shutters That Integrate Into Your Home Decor

One perk of owning simple window treatments in Austin is that they go with most decor. Interior shutters are a prime example. These louvered shutters have attractive straight lines and a smooth finish that give them an understated but sophisticated appearance. They look more like an architectural element than window treatments. And you can purchase them in multiple neutral hues, from the warm wood tones of Ovation® hardwood shutters to crisp white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Interior shutters are also simple to use. Instead of fussy cords, shutters have panels which you can pull open when desired, and you can control the sunlight with the louvers by adjusting the tilt rod or the louvers themselves. You can open the panels if you want lots of sunlight or tilt the louvers to redirect light. Then shut everything when you need insulation, darkness, and privacy.

Easily Use Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

A second simple window treatment idea for Austin homeowners, classic roller shades are the definition of simple. They are made of a flat sheet of fabric that rolls up into a tube above your window when you give the shade a little tug. Some people don’t want roller shades because they’ve only seen ones with cords that get tangled and look messy. But you can avoid these issues with cordless roller shades that use a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or really simplify your life with motorized shades that operate by remote control or a smart app.

Roller shades are an obvious option for Austin window coverings because they have a sleek, clean design that works on nearly any window. Their minimalist style suits farmhouse, traditional, coastal, minimalist and other design trends. The hardest aspect of using roller shades is choosing from the array of options you have for colors, patterns, and fabrics. You can even pick between sheer, medium, and blackout opacities for the level of privacy and natural light you desire.

Close Cellular Shades To Easily Insulate Your Windows

Cellular shades offer several of the same advantages as roller shades. They just look and work a little differently. Instead of pulling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades are made from pleated material that folds up on itself when you open the shades. The “cells” that those pleats create give the shades an understated texture and added energy efficiency texture. When you shut your cellular shades, their cells catch some of the air that slips through your windows. Cellular shades are a simple way to add a little style to your windows and insulate them against drafts.
