What Are Cabin Window Treatments?
If your cabin windows look bare and you want to block out the sun, cabin window treatments are the answer. They’re a popular way to enhance the rustic look and homely features of log cabins — and for good reason.
Cabin window treatments come in many different styles and are a great way to add charm, ambiance, and privacy to your cabin. As Jamestown’s custom drapery provider, Windows Works Studio is here to point you in the right direction with four creative cabin window treatment ideas.
1. Natural Shades
For a rustic window treatment, consider shades made from a natural, eco-friendly material like bamboo or woven wood. Shades are available in several natural colors to match the look of your cabin.
Want to combine looks with convenience? Choose motorized shades that raise or lower them with the touch of a button.
Shades are also great at filtering outside light, adding gentle ambient light to your cabin during the day without letting in too much heat.
2. Custom Shutters
Shutters are popular for cabin window treatments thanks to their classic look and durability. Shutters go on the exterior of your cabin and consist of hard materials like wood and vinyl, so you can paint them in a variety of ways. If your cabin seems dark during the day, then shutters with a light wood color will add style and brightness.
Looking to add a nostalgic flair to your cabin windows? Farmhouse shutters, which mimic the cabin-like farmhouses of old American homes, provide a peaceful historic charm and security to your log cabin.
3. Curtains or Drapes
You can use lightweight curtains or heavier, thicker drapes to give your cabin home a cozier look and feel. Like bamboo shades, linen curtains are long-lasting and eco-friendly. Thicker drapes can help insulate your cabin, keeping it warm during the winter months and saving you money on bills.
We recommend a neutral color like beige or natural green to add a subtle flair to your cabin decor.
4. Wood Blinds
Blinds are another excellent way to control your cabin’s indoor lighting while adding a homely finish. Wood blinds are similar to plastic blinds, but their wooden material means they have an inherently rustic look. This makes them a suitable choice for your cabin.
You can also paint or stain the blinds in a variety of ways to best match your cabin’s design. They function much like shutters but with greater flexibility since you can position the blinds partly open to let in some light.
If you plan to bring pets or kids to your cabin, consider cordless wooden blinds so you don’t have to worry about accidental tangles.
