Fashion Forward: The Little Black Window Treatment

We all know how fashionable black can be.  For clothing, it’s slimming, elegant, and can dress up a night on the town, but mention the use of the color black for a window treatment and people will think you’ve lost your mind!  Black definitely isn’t a traditional window treatment color, but if done correctly can bring an added touch of style and a contemporary look to any room.

Black window treatments can be used to create a modern look by matching them with monochromatic furnishings and décor.  Keep in mind that you don’t need to have ultra-modern furnishings to pull off a black window treatment.  The design works well in any room, especially rooms with a colorful decorating scheme, as it can bring a sense of balance.

When using black curtains for a window treatment design you should be aware of your drapery hardware and be sure to use rods or drapery medallions with a lighter, brighter finish that match the other finishes in your room like tables, light fixtures, and door hardware.

Are you currently using black window treatments in a room design?  Here at Metropolis Iron, we LOVE to see what other designs and DIY’s are currently seeing as “trendy”.  Feel free to forward us you black window treatment ideas and photos to [email protected].
