How to Find the Perfect Vintage Window Treatment

Two popular décor styles are traditional vintage and mid-century vintage. Both of these décor styles are inspired by other eras that are at least 30 years or older. Finding interior décor to match these styles can be easy with thrift stores and garage sales, but matching your specific style to the perfect window treatment can be difficult. But don’t worry; Budget Blinds® has plenty of window treatments options to fit your vintage-inspired home.

Traditional Vintage

Traditional vintage takes a past era and recreates it. This type of décor makes you feel as if you’ve stepped into an old television show like, “Leave it to Beaver.” Finding a window treatment to match this particular style of décor can be hard. Here are two beautiful window covering options that will complete your overall look and provide plenty of benefits.

Custom wood blinds with cloth tapes are a great option for a traditional vintage home. Wood blinds come in a variety of colors, stains and finishes. They can also be custom color-matched to your wood trim or furnishings which is great for completing your desired look. By adding decorative cloth tapes to your wood blinds, you add an extra touch to bring out your vintage flair. The best thing about wood blinds is that they are an eco-friendly window treatment that blocks out harmful UV rays protecting your vintage furnishings from any sun damage.

Another window covering that is ideal for a vintage-inspired home is classic drapery. Drapes come is a variety of prints and patterns to create your specific vintage-inspired style. They are a beautiful window covering that also adds more security and privacy to your home. Draperies that are pleated, lace, floral or even sheer are great options to choose from to achieve the vintage look. An added bonus with drapery is that they are energy-saving with insulating properties that block out heat in the summer and keep your home warm in the winter which, in return, reduces your energy bill.
