French Country Window Treatment Ideas
Let’s first take a look at the popular Roman shade or some custom drapery. These design choices work great if you have tall windows in your home. They offer privacy and help to filter the light coming into the room. They can also be paired together to offer that classic French country elegant look to your windows.
If the windows are small or hard to reach, you might consider motorized shades. With the ability to open or close your shades with a press of a button, operating window treatments has never been more convenient. Color Lux has a vast selection of motorization options that can be added to any window to enhance the French country look of the room.
You can also think about using valances or cornices if the windows are smaller and you don’t want to overwhelm the space. This would be a subtle way to achieve the French country-style window treatment in your home. An added benefit to using valances or cornices is that the roller shades could be hidden away behind them when not needed.
If you have some unique windows in your home that are oddly shaped, no worries. Color Lux has you covered. These specialty windows can easily be enhanced with a French country flare! Curves and angles are not a concern for Color Lux. We have just what you need.
Finally, wood blinds would be a great addition to any window. They are revered for their warm, rustic detail and classic look. Like any Color Lux product, our wooden blinds can be custom-ordered to best fit your French-countryside vision.
