Soaring Ceilings and Large Windows Provide Gorgeous Views

The Boise area, including Meridian, Eagle, and Nampa, is known for its gorgeous views, outdoor activities, and connection with nature. New home construction in the Treasure Valley capitalizes on this by featuring an amazing view through large windows and soaring ceiling heights. 

While good for views of the outdoors and an abundance of natural light year-round, the height and size of the windows may make you wonder, " What can I put on the windows for privacy and light control, yet still enjoy my gorgeous views?" Not to worry, Budget Blinds of Boise and Nampa has you covered with a full range of options from roller and solar shades to floor-to-ceiling custom draperies. 

Want the clean look of cordless window treatments but wonder how to reach the top of the windows to operate the window treatment? Budget Blinds offers motorization options from rechargeable battery-operated shades controlled by a handheld remote or wall switch to whole-home smart home automation. Operate your window treatments from an app or set schedules to open and close your shades throughout the day for energy efficiency and UV protection. With motorized shades from Budget Blinds, you create a comfortable, safe environment for your entire family. The cord-free functionality of motorized window treatments makes them safe for children and pets. An additional benefit is that many of our shade products stack tightly or roll into a cassette, allowing for total views of the outdoors when the shades are fully raised. 

Add Contrast with Black Accents

While popular paint colors remain neutral shades of white and warm grays, a trending design element is to add contrast with black framed windows, cabinet hardware, ceiling fans, and light fixtures, as well as decor and furniture accents.

This look lends itself well to the ever-popular Modern Farmhouse Style. Featuring white walls and cabinetry mixed with black accents in the modern light fixtures, farmhouse chairs or barstools, and black roller shades for a modern, clean-lined look.

Modern Design Details with Mid-Century Style

Along with the modern, clean-lined palette and styling of new homes in the Boise area, we noticed several Mid-Century Modern elements. From the iconic skinny horizontal windows on front doors to the angled windows near the top of vaulted ceilings to mid-century light fixtures.

You may wonder what current window covering products to use with this style. No worries, at Budget Blinds, we have you covered!  Cellular shades, with their clean look and top-down bottom feature, work well with styles like Mid-Century Modern.  Plus, they are available in unique shapes for the angled windows often featured in this style. Budget Blinds of Boise and Nampa offers a full range of cellular shades in colors and textures to match the interior of your home. 

Don't forget we also do custom draperies. Budget Blinds of Boise and Nampa offers an exclusive European line of drapes that feature the modern styling of wave or ripple fold drapes. This is the perfect style to compliment  Mid-Century Modern interiors. Mix with Modern drapery hardware for the finishing touch.

Add Texture and Warmth with Natural Materials

Natural wood floors have been trending for the past few years, and nothing ties a home's interior to nature and the outdoors like a beautiful wood floor. It adds warmth to the modern color palette of neutral gray, white, and black. We are also seeing the use of natural materials in light fixtures and window covering. Woven wood shades are one of our favorite window treatments to add texture to a home. The ability to add a light-filtering or blackout lining to the shade makes it the perfect option for any room. Budget Blinds of Boise and Nampa offers woven shades in natural materials from bamboo to jute in colors of white and gray, as well as warm tones to coordinate with wood flooring, natural wood beams, and other design elements throughout your home.
