Blackout roller shades on three windows offer privacy & darkness for comfort in a living room.

What makes a home feel modern?

What would you describe as a modern home? A home with clean lines and updated decor is what most people picture when asked what makes a home feel modern and windows contribute a lot to the feel of a home. They let in natural light and they allow you to see the beauty of the outside, whether you need privacy or not. Choosing the right style and color of window treatment will help you achieve the feel that you desire in your home, whether it is modern, eclectic, country chic, or anywhere in between.

What colors give a modern feel?

There are so many color choices for roller shades. Light colors open up a space which always feels modern while darker colors make a bold statement which can also feel very modern. In 2021, choosing bold colors for accessories and more natural colors for furniture was a big trend. Many people would refer to this style as Nordic design, also known as Scandinavian design.

Roller shades in a modern living room partially cover windows looking out onto a beautiful yard.

Which blinds and shades give a space a modern feel?

Clean silhouettes, like roller shades, give a home a modern feel. Contrast that with lots or swag window valances and ornate cornice boxes. Clean lines are trending in home decor. Light-filtering roller shades are very popular and come in all price ranges and colors. There are choices suitable for all types of rooms. Solar shades are another option for a clean and modern – they allow you to see the beauty of the outdoors with the same trim sihouette as roller shades. They have a subtle look that still gives your windows a beautiful finish.

Some of the colors I would recommend for a more contemporary look are listed below:

Light-Filtering Roller Shades:
  • Hudson: Ice/Ash/Raven
  • Swatches of Hudson: Ice, Ash & Raven
  • Leyton: Swan/Earl Grey
  • Swatches of Leyton: Swan & Earl Grey
  • Stria: Egret
  • Sophie: White
  • Swatches of Stria in egret and Sophie in white

Solar Shades:
  • Miami: Black
  • Melbourne: Black Silk
  • Swatches of Miami and Melbourne solar shades in blacks

In a modern kitchen with a sink window with a view of the outside, sunlight filters through black sun shades.
