Best Cabin Window Treatments
Cabin décor doesn’t always subscribe to home décor trends. Gold faucets, smart appliances and floral wallpaper would look good anywhere, but cabins tend toward the woodsy and the rustic. Think antlers, old tools, clever phrases and lots of red and green.
Farmhouse and cottagecore style are also prevalent in cabin design, and window treatments are no exception. These cabin window treatment ideas lean into the cozy, backwoods vibe favored for log cabins.
Shutters are often installed on a home’s exterior for decorative purposes. But when you’re roughing it in the woods, they need to function. These barn door shutters can be installed indoors or outdoors. Since they’re unfinished solid cedar, you can paint or stain them as you please.
Café curtains create a quaint, homey environment. They’re especially fitting in a kitchen or breakfast nook window.
This lace café curtain set comes in ivory or white. The traditional American design is timeless, yet it brings an unmistakable touch of country charm — perfect for the cabin. These cabin window treatments are machine washable, and there’s a matching window valence available, too.
For a simple, natural cabin window treatment, look no further than these floor-length linen drapes. They come in six sizes and 13 colors. They’re a great choice for a modern cabin interior or to highlight the view outside the window. Although not the fanciest choice, these drapes are a strong, dependable option — plus they’re machine washable.
Plaid is a cabin staple for fire pit evenings and sunrise coffee. But it isn’t just for flannel shirts; plaid makes stylish cabin window treatments too. These plaid curtains are perfect for a cabin in the woods. Go subtle with beige or blue, or bold with red or purple. Pair with vintage signs, deer antlers and a singing fish for a perfectly kitschy home away from home.
Blinds are another popular cabin window treatment, paired with curtains or drapes for light blocking. Wood blinds look more rustic and cabin-y than plastic ones.
These two-inch wood blinds come in many colors to suit any interior design style. For a more rustic look, go for brown or gray. These blinds even have a cordless option for cabins with pets or kids.
Rustic Curtain Rod
Curtain hardware is just as important as the curtains themselves. This sturdy, rustic curtain rod features black metal with gold highlights. It brings the outdoors in while beautifully matching the linen and plaid drapes mentioned above. Loon Peak also has a plain pine cone curtain rod and a bear curtain rod available on Wayfair.
Rustic Curtain Tiebacks
If you go with curtains as your cabin window treatments, you’ll need tiebacks. These rope curtain tiebacks fit cabins nicely. They’re just rustic enough to match many styles of curtain or décor, including farmhouse linen and Northwoods plaid. The rope comes in eight colors and packs of two or four.
A window valence easily adds personality to plain curtains or blinds. This Northwoods window valence is mainly tan with red plaid curtain rod tabs and two bear silhouettes. For a little more color, try the Barefoot Bungalow Yosemite window valence, which has stripes, pine trees, a geometric pattern and bear silhouettes.
Burlap Cabin Window Treatment
Durable and inexpensive, burlap is a hardworking décor element. A little burlap can take a room from spring to fall, or minimalist to rustic, at a moment’s notice. That’s why it’s often used in Thanksgiving and cabin decorations.
Check out this tan burlap window valence trimmed with delicate cream lace. The burlap lets in plenty of light to make the room feel bigger.
Cottagecore Lace Balloon Curtains
Cottagecore leans heavily into the romantic, homey and sometimes feminine. Cottagecore is all about living off the land, which makes it a fitting style for a rural cabin or cottage. These lace balloon curtains fit right into the comfortable, vintage-inspired design trend. One Wayfair reviewer paired them with white blinds to increase light filtering.
