When you’re bringing guests into your home, you want them to feel warm and welcome. You can create this impression with food, a welcoming tone of voice, and the interior design of your space. One of the best ways to create a warm and welcoming space is with color and material. Pale yellows are bright and welcoming, blues have a calming effect, and wood accents create a warm feel. But you might be wondering how you can add wood tones to your home without completely redesigning. When you think of adding wood accents, you probably think of flooring and furniture. However, you can also add wooden accents with your window treatments. Learn how you can welcome guests with wooden accents below!
Decorating with Wood Blinds
You are probably already aware of at least two ways to add wood to your home through your window treatments. The first is with wood blinds. Depending on your needs, you can choose genuine hardwood or more durable, low maintenance materials that look like wood. Parkland® Wood Blinds are made from 100% domestic wood. The classic, authentic blinds can be customized to your preferences for slat size, paint colors, and finishes. EverWood® Alternative Wood Blinds, as the name suggests, are made with a wood alternative. However, with the wide selection of TruGrain® finishes (or solid colors if you prefer) creates the same warm feeling of genuine wood. This is just one example of how you can welcome guests with wooden accents.
Decorating with Wood Shutters
The other popular option, especially for those looking for that Southern design, is the classic plantation shutter. Heritance® Hardwood Shutters from Hunter Douglas are a timeless classic. Also made from 100% genuine hardwood, these shutters are a great way to welcome guests with wood accents! These window treatments are constructed from either basswood or poplar and can fit your style with a wide array of color and finish options. From rich, dark browns to light caramel colors, these shutters are sure to stun the second you put them up. Thanks to the Integra™ finish, these shutters also require minimal care to retain their luster and durability. This means you can focus more on entertaining your guests and less on how your shutters look throughout the evening.
