Your bedroom windows are teeming with design potential, it just takes the right shades or drapes. To help you find the best bedroom window treatments for your unique aesthetic sensibility, we rounded up some of our favorites for a handful of popular interior design styles. From Scandinavian-style roman shades for minimalists, to boldly colored drapes for maximalists, here are the best Barn & Willow window treatments for every type of design personality.


1. Modern Minimalists


If you’re a fan of simple spaces filled with clean-lined silhouettes, then chances are you gravitate towards minimalist-minded décor schemes and drapery. The 2-Pleat Organic Cotton Drapes in Optic White feature a contemporary pinch-pleated design that feels modern yet elegant at the same time, while the 2-Pleat Belgian Flax Linen Drapes in Light Gray provide the same style of pleat but with a pop of gray for some subdued bedroom personality.

For sophisticated bedroom shades that won’t stray from a minimalist color palette, consider the Flat Belgian Flax Linen Roman Shade in Stone Gray. Or for monochrome blackout shades that will keep your bedroom windows insulated, try the Blackout Roller Shades in Vanilla to bring some Scandinavian-inspired style to your window scene.


2. Boho Lovers


If breezy, bohemian-inspired interiors are more your speed, then look no further than Belgian sheer linen drapery. The Euro Pleat Belgian Sheer Linen Drapes in Oatmeal or Off-White are gauzy enough to usher in natural light while creating an ethereal, free-flowing effect.

To score a boho-friendly bedroom window scene with shades, look for ones composed of smooth, natural materials, like the Relaxed Organic Cotton Roman Shade in Bisque or the Relaxed Belgian Linen Roman Shade in Flax to bring a touch of texture and visual interest to the scheme.


3. Classic Traditionalists


If you consider yourself a traditionalist, then you love cozy bedrooms with lots of earth tones and classical design elements. For an elegant yet unfussy bedroom display that will speak to your sophisticated style, try the 3-Pleat Organic Cotton Drapery in Fog or Storm Gray (for a darker, moodier look).

To create a timelessly chic bedroom window scheme with roman shades, consider the Cascade Belgian Flax Linen Roman Shade in Optic White for a clean, classic look. Or, bring depth and dimension to a traditional color palette with the Blackout Roller Shades in Polygon Charcoal to integrate some sophisticated pattern play in the scene.


4. Casual Industrial Style


If you consider yourself an industrial design enthusiast, then you like bedrooms with laidback decor and functional design elements. To maximize the efficiency of your bedroom windows, employ the Blackout Roller Shades in Nickel to insulate your windows while blocking out unwanted sunlight. Or, try the Relaxed Belgian Flax Linen Roman Shade in Shale to create a sleek but versatile window display.

To bring a dash of drama to a casual industrial-style bedroom, hang gray-toned drapes with a relaxed silhouette, such as the Soft Top Belgian Flax Linen Drapes in Mist Gray, or the Soft Top Washed Belgian Linen Drapery in Seafoam for a pop of color.


5. Eclectic Maximalists


If you’re a maximalist lover, then there’s no doubt you’ll want your windows to double as a focal point in your bedroom. Create an eye-catching window display that won’t overpower the rest of your bedroom décor with the help of the Grommet Velvet Drapes in Teal or Sapphire. If roman shades are more your style, the Pleated Velvet Roman Shade in Teal or Sapphire will make an equally big impact in a bedroom.
