Custom Window Treatments That Accent Wood Flooring in Billings MT

Wood flooring lends a timeless beauty to any room. And the naturally neutral tones of wood allows it to work well with a variety of colors and styles. The experts at Murray Floor & Window Coverings will help you create the perfect custom window treatments for your hardwood floors.

Protecting Your New Wood Flooring

Natural light streaming through a window and shining on wood floors is beautiful, but it can also cause them to fade. Fortunately, most Hunter Douglas window coverings provide at least some protection from harmful UV rays.

To enjoy the natural light while still protecting your floors, consider using window fashions that filter the light. Silhouette® and Pirouette® shadings have sheer panels that allow the sunlight through but block UV rays. You can close the horizontal fabric vanes on these shades when you want additional coverage or privacy.

Screen shades also allow some light in when they are closed and they won’t completely obstruct your view of the outdoors.

Enhancing Your New Wood Flooring with Wood Blinds and Shades

Hunter Douglas offers both vertical and horizontal blinds in real wood. Choose a stain that matches your hardwood floors to emphasize the color, or have them painted to blend in with the window trim to let your floors be the focal point. Modern décor doesn’t require wood tones or types to match, so be creative in your wood blind selection. Real-wood shutters are also available in a variety of colors and stains and can be created to fit windows that have an unusual shape. They can even be used as closet doors.

Another choice for window treatments is woven wood shades. Made with wood, bamboo, grasses and reeds, these shades keep things natural and provide an innate texture to your windows without stealing the spotlight from your wood flooring.

Softening Your Room

Don’t completely cover your wood flooring with carpeting in an attempt to soften the room. Let your wood floors shine and soften your windows instead. Roman shades cover a window in fabric when closed and gather into luxurious folds when open. Honeycomb shades are another excellent choice for soft window coverings, and their cellular construction make them energy-efficient as well.

If you decide you need a little warmth on your floor and add an area rug, use a color from it as inspiration for your window treatments. Or keep both the area rug and blinds neutral to accentuate the color of the wood floors.
