Get These Simple Window Treatments For New Brunswick

January 21, 2022

Do you ever notice a window covered with some over-the-top drapery that it acted as the focal point of the room? Or went to raise a blind just for it to tilt on one side or the other regardless of which string you pulled? Flamboyant or fussy window shades are overwhelming and bothersome. Many New Brunswick homeowners prefer simple window treatments such as elegant interior shutters, minimalist roller shades, and modern cellular shades.

So try these simple window treatment ideas in your New Brunswick house and bid farewell to difficult blinds and drapes.

Use Simple Louvered Shutters That Blend Into Your Home Decor

One benefit of using simple window treatments in New Brunswick is that they go with most decor. Interior shutters are a prime example. These louvered shutters have attractive parallel lines and a smooth finish that give them an understated but refined aesthetic. They appear more like an architectural detail than window treatments. And you can find them in multiple neutral colors, from the rich wood tones of Ovation® hardwood shutters to crisp white faux-wood Polywood shutters.

Louvered shutters are also simple to operate. Rather than fussy pull strings, shutters have panels that can swing open when needed, 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 a lot of sunlight or move the louvers to divert light. Then close everything when you want privacy, insulation, and darkness.

Effortlessly Operate Cordless And Motorized Roller Shades

A second simple window treatment idea for New Brunswick homeowners, classic roller shades are the very definition of simple. They have a flat sheet of fabric that rolls up into a tube above your window when you tug the shade a bit. Some people don’t like roller shades because they’ve only used the kind with strings that look messy and get tangled. However, you can avoid these issues with cordless roller shades that use a sewn-in pull bar instead. Or simplify things more with motorized shades that work with a smart app or remote control.

Roller shades are an easy choice for New Brunswick window treatments because their sleek, clean look works on many windows. Their minimalist style complements farmhouse, traditional, coastal, minimalist and other decor trends. The most difficult aspect of using roller shades is choosing from the array of choices out there for patterns, colors, and fabrics. You can even choose between sheer, blackout, and medium opacities for the level of natural light and privacy you want.

Easily Insulate Your Windows When You Shut Your Cellular Shades

Cellular shades supply many of the same advantages as roller shades. They simply look and operate a bit differently. Instead of rolling up into a tube attached to your window, cellular shades have fabric pleats that fold and gather up when you open the shades. The “cells” that the pleats create give the shades an understated texture and better energy efficiency texture. When you close your cellular shades, their cells trap some of the air that enters through your windows. Cellular shades are a simple option to add some style to your windows and insulate them against drafts.
