A large portion of Americans move into apartments each year, and while each apartment is different, you can’t always customize your space like you want. For many apartment dwellers, the need to transform their blank canvas into a space that showcases their personality is a must. That being said, when you want to decorate your apartment windows, there are a variety of options to choose from that will make you feel at home.
Wooden Woven Shades – There are handmade designer shades that are painted or stained in a wide variety of styles and patterns. These shades come textured, flat, hobbled or pleated styles. For a modest appearance, go with shades that are tapered and delicate. For a bolder appearance, you can go with slats that are woven together.
Natural Shades – Natural shades for your apartment can be made from eco-friendly materials like exotic grasses, wood, bamboo, reeds or many other options. They are made from a blend of two materials or made singularly.
Pleated Shades – Pleated shades add a great bit of style and class to apartment decor and are priced reasonably. They are crisp, neat and attractive. They offer a nice complement to any shape of window; including dome-shaped and hexagon. Pleated shades come in a variety of styles, colors and textures. These quality shades are durable year after year, and the fabrics chosen will resist sagging or fading.
Solar Window Shades – Solar window shades are a great option for your apartment. They allow you to enjoy the view of the outdoors, while reducing the glare of the sun and heat. Solar window shades protect your furniture from the ultra-violet rays and come in many styles from semi-sheer to opaque and have varying degrees of light penetration.
Roman Window Shades – For a classic and neat appearance in your apartment, roman window shades look great. Roman shades can be made with flexible to taut fabrics and folds ranging from the scalloped edge, the teardrop fold, classic flat fold or the soft relaxed fold.
Cellular Shades – Another great option for your apartment shades are cellular shades. Often called honeycomb shades, they offer air pockets for added insulation; however, they are cost-effective and weigh very little.
As you can see, there are many options available when it comes to decorating your apartment with shades. Shop around so that you can make the best decision to make your apartment look fantastic.
