Modern blinds or shades are a great window covering for every home with a modern design aesthetic. Contemporary blinds feature sleek, elegant lines combined with either neutral coloring or modern print designs. Contemporary blinds can also be made from natural materials, including bamboo, or manufactured from durable man-made solutions. Among the different types of modern blinds are:
Modern Blinds + Shades Types -
Venetian Blinds: The most common kind of modern blinds are horizontal/venetian blinds. These are the most common blind type often found in new homes and preferred as a low-cost window covering solution. Venetian contemporary blinds do an excellent job at providing privacy and a decent job at dimming light, though cats are known to damage these blinds.
Roller Shades: Modern roller shades are manufactured in a wide variety of colors and materials and can provide a classy modern look to your room. These quality products can add a lot of interest to a window and enhance the modern style of your home.
Roman Shades: Roman contemporary shades are often made of fabric and when closed typically provide a smooth appearance similar to a roller shade; however, when opened they stack up in segments more similar to a venetian blind, though typically in much larger segments.
Modern Blinds + Shades Features -
Contemporary blinds and shades have a number of different features that, depending on your unique circumstances and use cases, can range from inconsequential to absolutely essential. Sheer blinds and shades are built to allow natural light to filter through. This feature is extremely useful for bedroom blinds and shades that provide privacy while also letting some light filter though in the morning to ease your wake up process. Cordless blinds can be opened and closed without a cord and remove a potentially dangerous hazard for children and pets, while also freeing your line of sight from cords. Thermal and Blackout shades feature thicker materials and superior light blocking and are useful for a child's room, media room, or a bedroom.
Modern Blinds + Shades Materials -
You can find contemporary blinds and shades in any number of materials, but AllModern largely features blinds and shades in bamboo and synthetic fabrics. Blinds composed of bamboo are made with slats of natural, eco-friendly bamboo that are seamlessly woven together. Synthetic fabric blinds feature a soft, fabric-inspired look and feel, but are made with artificial materials for an affordable, yet durable finish.
