Which Shades Work Best to Cover Black Trim Windows? 

Over the last few years, black trim windows have grown in popularity. These windows contrast strongly against light-colored walls by bringing a nice pop of color where you would not expect it. While they are meant to stand out, what happens if you want a specific window treatment? Thankfully, at Blue Sky Shutters & Shades, we’ve got a great range of products for you to cover black trim windows in your home! 


Sheer Shades

With sheer shades, you have the perfect blend of light and privacy. Not only are they extremely versatile, but the black trim windows are still visible. There are multiple types of sheer shades that are ideal for any home.

Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades are where energy efficiency and style meet. They block the heat from coming in, reduce outdoor noise and continue to provide natural lighting to a room once they are closed. By choosing a light color honeycomb shade, the black trim windows will contrast nicely as light shines through.

A great aspect of roller shades is the dual shades feature. You will get the best of both worlds as you can get see-through viewing in one position and a darkened room when the secondary shade drops. (This can be a great option no matter the color of your trim!)
