Designers and homeowners alike are gushing over black window frames. Like a dark-rimmed photo frame, they highlight the beauty they surround.

Your home’s architectural style has a lot of influence on what works when selecting window treatments for your home. Your Drapery Street designer will take this into consideration – along with your budget, privacy, lighting needs, and personal style – when providing recommendations.


Some black window frames are white to the interior, while others are black both inside and out. For solid black window frames in a modern home, a black shade or blind can be a minimalist choice. It provides a seamless appearance from both the interior and exterior of the home. Consider roller shades, custom Roman Shades, or Provenance® shades. Just because a shade is black does not mean that it is going to make the room dark. Drapery Street offers black shades and blinds that filter and disperse light beautifully into a room.

Traditional colonial style homes require more symmetry in colors and style of window treatments. Alternatively, ranch style homes allow for varying window treatments when visual flow is considered.


When using draperies with black window frames, it’s all about the lining. Pair two different textiles together, one viewable from the inside and one viewable from the outside. The fabric you love for your living room does not have to complement your home’s exterior – there are liners for that. Black lined drapes will visually disappear to the street.
