Cottage Window Treatments

Simple, easy breezy window treatments for your cottage decor. Pictures and ideas to inspire your creativity!

What is it that you love about cottage decorating?

For most, it's the simplicity of the designs, the philosophy of giving new life and purpose to vintage and classic pieces, and the overall welcoming atmosphere that country cottage decor exudes. Window treatments are consistent with this decorating style and theme. Rarely will you find a custom, formal window treatment in a cottage style home.

Rather, you'll see simple cotton panels in shades of off white; soft colors and prints or subtle plaids.

Lace panels, swags, valances and tiers always fit the decor theme and are often used as window treatments in cottage home decorating.

Here are some choices in beautiful

lace window panels, tiers, swags and valances:

Plantation shutters, wood blinds, simple roman shades, honeycomb shades and other light, simple window coverings are welcome in cottage style homes as well.

Cottage Window Treatment Idea

A decorative rod hung below a transom window (or 1/4 of the way down from the top of a standard window) with sheers or lace panels, gives a simple yet classic look to a living or dining room, and allows some additional natural light to flow into the space.

Simple bamboo roll up shades with side panels in colors to match your decor are a budget friendly way to complete a set of windows in your cottage style home.

Casual Window Treatment with Lace Swa

Layer your window treatments with a lace swag combined with tie-back panels in either a plain cotton or print.

Consider combining a simple lace panel with a fabric print to create an interesting but informal look for your cottage decorating.

Yes, it might require that you pull out the sewing machine and put a little time into it, but just think of the unique creations that would result for your casual home!
