Sleek Window Treatments with Modern Style
Modern design embraces the minimal, from clean straight lines to geometric shapes and monochromatic rooms to bold pops of color. Whether your entire design embodies a modern aesthetic or you simply want to add a smart window treatment to a single room, shades and custom drapes from The Shade Store can give you just the right touch of sleek, modern style.
Sleek, Straight Shades
In simple solids or bright prints, Flat Roman Shades add the softness of fabric with a flat, clean finish when closed and a neat stack when raised. Even when Flat Romans are down, their permanent bottom fold stays in place, adding an interesting structural element to otherwise simple shades.
For the ultimate simplicity in design, try Roller Shades or Solar Shades on your windows. These shades create strong, straight lines when closed, and virtually disappear into an inconspicuous roll when raised, preserving the architecture of your window and leaving your view unobstructed. Available in light filtering, UV blocking (great for protecting art and furniture), and blackout materials, Roller and Solar Shades function well throughout the home.
Metal Accents with Hardware
Metal details can lend a distinctly modern, industrial feel to any space. If you are using Roller or Solar Shades in your design, there are two spaces to add a unique touch of metal: in the brackets, and in the optional exposed bottom bar. We offer a variety of finishes to match the shade materials and your décor. Brackets are available in White, Chrome, Satin Nickel, Bronze, or Black, and exposed bottom bars come in White, Silver (shown in the photo below), or Espresso.
Solar Shades, 7% Metallic, Silver
Drapery hardware can also be used to incorporate a subtle touch of metal to your windows. Our Steel and Acero collections both offer steel tubing with modern finial options. Grommet Drapes, shown below, are an excellent choice for an updated drapery look, and the color of the metal grommets can coordinate to match the color of the rod and hardware.

Bold Modern Prints
Add interest and color to your window treatments with one of our geometric prints. For Roman Shades and Drapery, many of our designer collections feature striking patterns, such as The Novogratz, Echo Designs, and Dwellstudio.
For a chevron pattern, try Roller Shades in Zig Zag or Chevron fabrics. Even Solar Shades are available in prints, such as the hexagonal pattern in Hive and the circles in Orbit. Order as many free swatches of these materials as you like to test them out in your space.
