Window Treatments Inspired by Coastal Vacation Destinations!

Have you had your dream vacation? How would you like to bring a little of your favorite place to your own home? The sun, the sand, the water, and the colors. How do you keep that feeling alive in the landlocked Midwest?

Paint colors, fabrics, and accessories all help recreate the coastal feel. Think of the colors of seaglass, soft, light and airy. Keep your space simple and free of clutter. That also goes for your window treatments. You can fashion your own vacation wonderland with window treatments that evoke your coastal getaway.

The options for window treatments are endless. Whether you are seeking draperies, curtains, panels, blinds, shutters, or shades, we’ve got you covered.

Plantation shutters are classic, timeless and approachable. For a beach-inspired style, consider NewStyle™ hybrid shutters, Heritance®, or Palm Beach shutters, all by Hunter Douglas. Now, you can have the same style of shutters that coastal cottages and resorts around the world embrace.

Improve the view of your room with woven woods. Made from natural fibers like bamboo, grass, reeds, and woods, they add another layer of color and natural texture to your room. For privacy and added warmth in the winter the shades can be backed. The lightweight drapery panels add a layer of coastal charm to the room along with the privacy and warmth benefits.

Window treatments need not be complicated for a coastal look. Simple solid drapery panels hung at the ceiling, add interest to the bedroom’s decor.
