The Best Blinds for Modern Homes

Update Your Home with Modern Window Treatments

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.

A spacious modern bedroom features roller shades on three windows.

Windows are a big part of a home: they let in natural light and they allow you to see the beauty of the outside even if you sometimes want a little privacy. Light-filtering roller shades have a clean silhouette that can modernize a room or fit in with an already modern room.

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.

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

Black solar shades with an open weave cover a window but still allow partial view of the outdoors above the sink in a modern kitchen.
