Coastal style is the perfect way to bring the beach home. It’s streamlined, breezy, and relaxed, with a few touches of seaside charm and practicality thrown in for good measure. Coastal décor sticks to a light color palette rooted on hues of white and beige with blues and greens used as accent colors. Natural materials and natural light are also key pieces of coastal style to emulate the sunniness and natural serenity of summer beach outings.
Abundant natural sunlight also helps to maintain the light and airy feel of contemporary coastal style. When choosing window coverings for your beach-inspired décor, look for treatments that use natural materials like woven woods, stay within the coastal color palette, and allow for plentiful but controlled natural sunlight.
Wood shades meld seamlessly into coastal style, especially when kept in lighter colors. Raw materials not only help build the earthy feel of coastal design, but they also add textural details and natural charm to décor. When choosing window coverings for coastal style, explore both soft and hard wood treatments to find a style the fits the unique beach theme in your home.
White makes an idyllic color for window treatments in beach-inspired décor. As the lightest of the neutral tones, white keeps the aesthetic feeling light and fresh, creating a bright backdrop for interior design.
Choosing window coverings to optimize natural light means looking for a treatment that can both allow light and block it to make a room usable around the clock. While coastal design calls for bright natural light, one’s privacy needs will require some protection against open windows.
Transform the style of your home into a seaside retreat by choosing window coverings in tune with today’s trends in coastal design. Find style advice and the latest Hunter Douglas treatments at Benchmark Shutters & Shades.
