Monochromatic color schemes work to provide unity and streamline design to help create the sought after minimalistic look, so it’s no surprise that the style is as popular as ever in modern kitchens.
Adding the right window treatment can help tie the whole room together, and add a pop of color to give a space unique character. Let’s look at a couple of examples to see what we mean.
The use of wooden blinds in this kitchen allows the homeowner the ability to control the amount of light allowed into the room and its direction, while adding a rich feel that warms up this modern minimalistic kitchen without detracting from the overall atmosphere.
Drapes and Sheers
These floor-to-ceiling layered sheers and drapes, while clearly in the living room, work to create a unified space throughout the living, dining and cooking areas. The sheers add a light and airy feel that blends with the monochromatic scheme into the rest of the space and allow in plenty of natural light while retaining privacy. In contrast, the gold drapes block out light, provide even more privacy, and add soft yet bold lines to the design with a warm and cheerful color block. If you watch a lot of movies in a living space, being able to darken the room reduces glare and can set the ambiance… especially with a little popcorn!
Curtains and Sheers
Unlike drapes, curtains won’t fully block out light. Depending on the design and location, curtains can be a great selection to allow natural light through, even if you choose to not layer them with shades or sheer panels underneath. Living spaces don’t typically require blackout options (unlike bedrooms, where controlling light levels can drastically affect your sleep), so curtains are a great choice for kitchens, dining rooms, living and family rooms and offices.
