When it comes to decorating, one of the more daunting tasks at hand is matching your decor to the rest of your home’s treatments, character, and aesthetics. One common question we often hear as your go-to window covering team is how to decorate cohesively with wooden blinds.
How to Choose the Right Decor to Enhance Your Wooden Blinds
Wooden blinds are a great addition to any window. With a range of finishes and styles, they can provide a natural and warm feel to your space, making it feel inviting and cozy.
The best part? They are extremely versatile when it comes to matching with other textures, colors, and materials. So, read on for our best tips and tricks to make your wooden blinds pop!
Choosing the Right Color Scheme
Let’s start with color. Wood types and finishes each have their own color and tone that must be considered when choosing pieces of decor. Take a look at your wood or faux wood blinds. Are they dark or light? Warm or cool-toned? Bright or dull?
To Mix or To Match
Once you have an idea of the tone and overall look of your wooden blinds, it’s time to decide how this will affect your color choices.
If you’re hoping for a cohesive and monochromatic look, find low-contrast items that closely match the tones of the wood. For example, pair a set of dark, reddish, mahogany blinds with warm tones. This could include a muted red rug or a set of dark brown lamps.
If you’d prefer a higher contrast look for your space, it is still important to consider the tone of your wood in order to find pieces that compliment the tone while still standing out. Go big and bold with your choices! Pair your cool-toned blinds with a statement couch in blue or green or pull out your color wheel and choose a complimentary color to style with. We’d recommend a piece of artwork with bright oranges to pull out the beautiful blue undertones of your blinds.
White Wooden Blinds
If your wooden blinds are painted white, you have even more options when it comes to choosing colors to complement them. Simply consider the look of the rest of your home, including your paint choices, and refer to the color wheel when making decisions for a more cohesive final result.
Wooden blinds and the decor you pair with them have the ability to change the overall feel of a room. Lighter-colored woods like oak are often used in more modern spaces and provide an airier aesthetic. Darker woods, however, provide a more traditional and formal design.
Do your best to match your decor choices with the aesthetic of your blinds. For example, pair your cherry blinds with a beautiful antique desk or your acorn blinds with a wicker blanket basket!
Incorporating Natural Elements into the Design
Wooden blinds already add a natural touch to your home, so why not extend that naturalistic look further into the room? Houseplants are a great way to achieve this.
Whether small or large, plants make a house feel like a home, adding a pop of color and a bit of life to your design. And if you don’t have a green thumb, never fear — faux plants can still achieve the same results.
Other natural decor elements to add to your space include:
- Stone. Coasters, sculptures, paperweights, or bookends.
- Other Wood Elements. A complimentary bookshelf, chair, or coffee table.
- Fresh flowers. Keep your vases filled with beautiful buds year-round.
Utilizing Textures to Complement Your Wooden Blinds
Textures are always important to consider when decorating your space. They add variety and character and make a design feel complete. Keep texture in mind as you’re shopping for new pieces.
Wooden blinds tend to be hard and smooth. Provide contrast with the help of a very soft blanket, pillows made with heavier materials, and sculptural artwork with a rough and gritty feel.
Wood Blinds to Match Your Decor Style
If you have found a decor style and aesthetic for your home that you love, there’s no need to deviate when decorating with your new window coverings! Most wooden blinds have the ability to match your style.
Wood Blinds & Rustic Decor
If your home has a rustic feel to it, your wooden blinds are in the right place. Pair them with natural elements like stone vases and greenery, add a wooden shelf, and provide light with fixtures made of dark metals.
Wood Blinds & Farmhouse Decor
Similar to rustic decor, farmhouse decor compliments wooden blinds perfectly. Painted faux wooden blinds add to the clean, white backdrop that is contrasted with dark wood and black metal elements. Don't forget to hang your favorite “welcome” sign near the window and fill your vases with cotton branches.
Wood Blinds & Modern Decor
Modern decor is sleek and simple. Achieve this style with the help of your smooth and clean blinds and add moody artwork, a large mirror, and a leather couch to your space!
Wood Blinds & Boho Decor
Wood blinds are a great option for those who favor this style. Their naturalistic look lends itself very well to the light, airy, and textured vibes that come with boho decor. Add a woven wall hanging, a jute rug, and warm-toned accent pillows to complete the look.
