Ways to Cover Black Trim Windows

Black Trim Windows have become the preferred choice lately for new construction and remodels. From the outside, black trim windows provide tremendous curb appeal. From the inside, your home feels contemporary, sleek and fashion forward. So, how do you cover black trim windows without detracting from their look? We have ideas. 

#1 Roller Shades

Black trim windows are a very deliberate choice, which means you love the look and want to show them off. A popular solution is found in roller shades.

Covering black trim windows with roller shades allows for the privacy and filtered light you need. Let’s not forget the added benefit of a slim and hardly noticeable treatment. Roller shades can easily roll up and out of the way, and if you choose a sheer fabric, your black trim windows remain visible even when shades are drawn.

Want options? Try the dual shades feature to cover black trim windows. With two positions, dual shades provide both view-through capability and room darkening; simply adjust the secondary shade into place and you’ll obtain the privacy you need.

When you go to cover black trim windows, first consider the overall look you are trying to achieve. Maybe you prefer the shades to blend in with the frames? Then choose something dark. Or, if you want more of a contrast, we have a variety of light colored fabrics available too.

Another option is to select shades that offer more flexibility. A system with dual control allows you to enjoy the black trim windows both ways; covered up for privacy or exposed for their contemporary look.
