Shades: Choosing the Right Color

Choosing the perfect color of shades for your home can be a hard decision. The color of your shades will have an effect on the overall décor of your entire home, so this decision is one that should not be taken lightly. Fortunately, Interiors: Blinds and Designs, serving Peachtree City, Newnan, Fayetteville, Senoia, Tyrone, and the surrounding areas, is here to help ease you through the process of deciding on a color with some helpful tips for you to consider.

Style and Décor

The first thing you have to figure out before you make a definitive color choice for your window treatments is what your style/décor theme is for your home. It is important to have a style in mind when choosing window treatment colors because you want your shades to enhance your décor, not simply cover your windows. You may be thinking that your window treatment color won’t affect your room décor that much, but keep in mind that you will look at these window treatments every single day, they are durable and thus will not need to be replaced anytime soon, so your decision is important. Have an idea of what tone you want to set in each room and your color choice will become easier.

Light Filtration

After you have figured out your ideas for your décor and style theme, you need to ask yourself how important light filtration is for the room you are adding shades to. While all Hunter Douglas shades have excellent levels of light filtration for you to utilize, they do come in varying levels depending on the shade style you choose. If you want shades that will block light, consider adding layers to your shades or choosing darker colors and heavier fabrics that will work well with your color scheme. If you are unconcerned with light filtration, your color choices are really unlimited.


Neutrals work great with any décor. Neutral or white shades allow you to play with color in other areas of your room and can also make your room appear larger and brighter. Not only will this let more light into your home, but these light colored shades will give off an air of understated beauty that will work well with any colors you have in your room. If you want more color, but still want to stay neutral, consider a Woven Wood shade or if you are looking for texture, Window Sheers and Honeycomb Shades are a great choice.


If you want to fully embrace color in your design, don’t skimp on the color of your shades. Use your shades to keep the bold décor theme you have going. Play up your accent colors or contrast the colors of your décor with the colors in your shades. Roller Shade or Roman Shade are both excellent choices when you want to add color to your shades. Rather it be a pattern or a solid color, these types of shades have incredible amounts of options for you to choose from.
