Stylish Fabric Treatments for Windows
Fabric is a versatile material when it comes to interior design because of the variety of colors, patterns or prints, and textures it comes in making it easy to coordinate with existing décor in a multitude of interior design styles. Additionally, the material itself adds depth and richness to design with the natural movement of fabric adding yet another layer of interest and dimension. Fabric treatments for windows, therefore, can be a great way to play with the design in your space while also enjoying the many benefits of high-quality window treatments including privacy and protection, light control, and décor enhancement.
Drapery and Side Panels
The most well-known fabric treatments for windows are probably drapes or side panels because they are such a fabric-forward treatment. From bold, full floor-to-ceiling drapes in opulent intricate jacquards to ethereal sheer side-panels that seem lighter than air, this style of fabric treatment is utterly customizable to your tastes thanks to the diverse collection of fabrics available through Hunter Douglas.
Roman shades are fabric treatment for windows that have the same customization options as drapery because of the variety of fabric choices, but Roman Shades have a more controlled and trim aesthetic. That’s not to say there is no movement in the fabric of Roman Shades, rather the mood set by its structured fabric aesthetic is different than the flowing feel of drapery. Hunter Douglas has three lines of Roman Shades including classic Design Studio™ Roman Shades made from an exclusive line of designer fabrics, the new Vignette® Modern Roman Shades with a chic contemporary vibe, and Solera® Soft Shades that are a hybridization of Roman shades and the energy-efficient honeycomb cellular shades.
Sheer shades are an interesting use of fabric in window treatments because of the use of both translucent and opaque materials. The diaphanous fabrics impart a uniquely airy and open quality to the window treatment, and the opaquer bands or vanes of fabric help the shades retain their functionality like providing light-control and privacy with view-through capabilities. There are several amazing styles of sheer shades made by Hunter Douglas including Silhouette® Window Shadings with s-shaped fabric vanes suspended between two sheer fabric panels, Pirouette® Window Shadings with front-facing fabric vanes, and Nantucket™ Window Shadings with horizontal fabric vanes for treatment with casual grace. Like Roman shades, sheer shades have a more controlled fabric construction with clean lines and precise maneuverability, but the lighter fabrics imbue a more fluid style like that of drapery for a unique blend of modern styles.
