12 Beautiful Window Treatment Ideas

If you are in the market for new window treatments, the possibilities can be overwhelming. Since there are plenty of options, your decision can be difficult. A couple of factors will come into play when making your final choice. Your new window coverings will undoubtedly have to provide privacy and light control. But an additional crucial factor will be the uniqueness and style of your new window treatments.

Budget Blinds® offers unlimited design potential with a large variety of window coverings to choose from for your next window treatments. Here are 12 beautiful window treatment ideas that can update and refresh your entire home.

1. Distressed Wood Blinds

Distressed wood blinds feature a customized finish that adds texture and character to your home and they come in a variety of colors to complement your room’s décor. Colored cloth tape can be added for a more refined look to your blinds. Wood blinds are not only a stunning window treatment but are an eco-friendly option that brings a natural element into your home. Distressed wood blinds are a unique window treatment for any room.

2. Butterfly Blinds

The innovative Butterfly Blind offered to you exclusively from Budget Blinds is the best of both worlds. Butterfly blinds are like two shades in one; when closed they resemble a pleated shade when opened, they function as a blind. They offer three basic settings to adjust your light and views: open for a clear view, half open for filtered light, and closed for complete privacy. Butterfly Blinds come in an extensive range of fabrics and colors to complement the rest of your interior.

3. Woven Wood Shades

Budget Blinds Inspired Shades Collection™ features a line of natural woven wood shades in a wide selection of colors and renewable resources like bamboo, jute, hemp, and flax. They are handcrafted window coverings that add natural beauty to your home. Woven wood shades are an eco-friendly window treatment, made from organic materials and completely recyclable. If you are looking for a greener option for your next window coverings, the woven wood shade is the perfect solution.

4. Roller Shades

Roller shades bold patterns and geometric patterns are perfect for adding a dramatic design element to your home. Budget Blinds’ exclusive Inspired Shades Collection™ offers a range of opacity levels which include sheer, light-filtering, room-darkening and blackout which allow you to control the light.  Also, custom roller shades provide year-round UV protection from the sun and insulation from heat or cold.

5. Custom Drapery

Budget Blinds offers an exclusive drapery collection that combines fashionable designs with quality craftsmanship. Drapery can stand alone as a window treatment or be layered with window coverings like blinds or shades. Drapery adds additional privacy as well as establishing a decorative theme from room to room in your home. Create a focal point in any room with custom, decorative drapery for a sumptuous look.

6. Budget Blinds Signature Illusions®


Budget Blinds Signature Illusions are a perfect example of brilliant function and elegance. Illusions filter harsh daylight while still allowing a view. With just a click of a button, you can control your Illusion shades with motorization by Somfy®, the world’s leading manufacturer of specialized motors and control systems. Cordless operation makes them pet and child safe, enhancing your home’s environment.

7. Specialty-Shaped Shutters


Shutters can be custom-made to fit any uniquely-shaped window. A Budget Blinds Style Consultant will expertly measure your windows and install your new shutters for precise coverage. Shutters come in a wide range of materials such as hardwood, faux wood, composite and aluminum to meet your specific needs for each room. A major bonus for shutters is they don’t have dangling cords making them child and pet safe.

8. Bi-fold and Tri-fold Hinged Shutters

A great window treatment for medium and large windows like bay windows are bi-fold or tri-fold hinged shutters. The shutters are hinged together creating a number of folds on each side of the window. The shutters will cover the windows when closed to allow for complete privacy but, when opened, they fold out of the way, allowing for a full view.

9. Inspired Drapes ® Drapery Panels


Budget Blinds offers ready-made drapery panels from the exclusive Inspired Drapes® line. They are quick to order and install to dress up any window. They’re offered in three styles: flat panels, back tab panels or grommet panels, and come in three finishes, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Satin Smoke, and Matte Nickel. They come in three lengths: 52” x84”, 52” x96” or 52” x108,” which accommodate most standard windows. There are 28 designer fabrics and colors to choose from, including Essential Silks, Woven Textures, Embroidered Moroccan Star and more. They can provide extra coverage to any window while adding a designer look.

10. Top Treatments, Trims, and Tassels 

Top treatments like valances and cornices add a posh look to any windows. With plenty of fabrics, patterns, and colors to choose from, you can design a top treatment to match your distinctive style. Trims like tassels and braids can be added to any top treatment for an embellished look. Top treatments not only add elegance, but they can also add height to your window by being installed inches above the top of the window frame. Lastly, top treatments are great to mask architectural issues like uneven windows or an arch you’ve grown tired of.

11. Drapery Hardware

Drapery hardware makes a statement when paired with drapery or curtains. Budget Blinds offers hardware in a wide selection of materials like metals, wood, ceramic and glass in custom rods and with beautiful artistic finials. Decorative drapery hardware is like adding the beautiful bow to your present– it completes the window’s look.  

12. Layering it all together

Each of these 12 beautiful window treatments can be used alone, or you can combine them to create a completely custom look for your home.
