Just as a simple black frame is an excellent contrast to a work of art, black window frames on the exterior of a home provide a pop of interest that builds curb appeal and amplifies visual impact. And black window frames are more than a passing craze. They have made a welcome resurgence and are here to stay as they are flexible enough to accommodate a variety of home styles, including both modern and farmhouse styles.

Because many black window frames are actually white on the inside of the home, this can create a challenge for window treatments. Do you match the Window Treatmentsinside or outside frame color?

The answer is both!


Drapery Street’s unique process of fusing a black exterior-facing fabric and white or light interior-facing fabric eliminates the issue. What was once a perplexing problem in the world of window treatments is now solved by Fusion Shades.

Fusion Shades blend seamlessly with both the interior and exterior of your window frames. Here’s how it works:

  1. CHOOSE YOUR TYPE OF SHADE. Depending on your unique window and style preference, you can choose Roman or roller shades.
  2. CHOOSE THE COLOR OF THE FRONT OF YOUR SHADES THAT WILL BE VISIBLE FROM THE INSIDE. It can be matched to your wall color, the window frame color, or whatever you choose. There are hundreds of fabrics in Drapery Street’s showroom that can be used with the Roman shade and the roller shade solution has ten variations of white options.
  3. CHOOSE THE COLOR OF YOUR LINING, WHICH WILL BE SEEN FROM THE STREET SIDE. This is generally black, but the roller shade solution also has a bronze exterior facing side option.

The beauty of Fusion Shades is that even though the lining of the shade is dark, the front side remains light and bright, and depending on the opacity of the shade you choose, it will still allow light to filter in.
