Do you find decorating to be stressful and overwhelming? You’re not alone. At Treasure Coast Window Fashions serving Jensen Beach, many of our customers are very unsure of how to go about decorating a room, let alone an entire home. But part of figuring out how to achieve a cohesive look is as easy as determining your style. In this post, we’re discussing the difference between “modern” and “contemporary” styles—perhaps one of them is right up your alley! Read on to learn more.
Modern vs. Contemporary Design in Your Home
The two terms might seem like they mean the same thing, but, in fact, they are quite different. “Modern” is “mid-century modern,” which originated in the 1950s and 60s. “Contemporary” refers to what’s current today. Modern style is all about warm neutrals and crisp lines, and contemporary style might actually mean something different five years from now than it does today.
Selecting Window Treatments for Each Style
For modern style, treatments made from natural materials or in earthy colors or bright whites are a good choice. For example, you could go with wood blinds or shutters, which stand the test of time, both in style and in durability, and they bring the beauty of the outdoors in. Parkland® Wood Blinds from Hunter Douglas are made from real hardwoods, like cherry, basswood, and oak. For a contemporary style, consider blinds made of metal for a sleek look in your space. A good option is Modern Precious Metals®, which are available in a wide range of finishes, such as metallics, mattes, and pearlescent colors, so you can accentuate your windows and your room. For a blend of both styles, consider Design Studio™ Roller Shades. They offer a clean, uncluttered minimalist approach that can complement any style. And drapery makes a classic modern or contemporary look, either as a standalone treatment or to pair with an existing window fashion. They’re great on larger windows, can emphasize the lines of a room, and help cut light gaps on existing treatments. No matter your choice, window treatments can transform the light in your home!
