The Best Window Coverings for Your Summer Cottage

Planning to escape to the cottage this summer? Give your vacation home a fresh new look with the best window coverings for your cottage-style space.


Our wood and composite wood shutters are excellent window treatments for a summer cottage. They are durable and high-quality, but they’re also very practical. They’re easy to wipe clean and they can adjust super easily for complete light and privacy control. We highly recommend our Composite Wood Shutters because they aren’t susceptible to moisture and humidity damage like genuine wood can be.

Shutters make a great choice for a cottage because they also offer a warm, inviting feel. They can give any home an elegant, country-style appeal. They’re traditional and classic but definitely not boring and old-fashioned.

Woven Wood Shades

Our woven wood collection is made from fibres of wood to give them a unique and natural look. They are eco-friendly and sustainable in addition to being a trendy interior designer-favourite. The natural look and feel of these shades blends in perfectly with the coastal chic cottage vibes you’re going for.

Take a look at the Amabel Beach House. It’s a beautiful cottage and designer Tiffany Leigh got the style just right. We love that she chose our Premium Woven Wood Shades in Quince for her Air BnB cottage.

Faux Wood Blinds

These are the most practical and affordable blinds you can get. They are wallet-friendly, durable, and they still give a somewhat natural feel to the room. Though not real wood, they do resemble it so they offer the right style for your summer cottage. Plus, they are very easy to maintain. Faux wood blinds don’t bend or warp, aren’t susceptible to moisture damage, and you can easily control both light and privacy settings with them.

Roman Shades

The elegant look of roman shades makes them an excellent choice for a summer cottage. You can choose a privacy or blackout liner if you need it so they are extremely versatile. They come in a wide range of colours and fabrics to suit every style. They offer the classic look of drapes with a slightly more modern edge.

Motorized Shades

If you are shopping around for blinds, we highly recommended upgrading to a motorized lift system. This can make your summer cottage even more practical and convenient. You can control your shades with the click of a button.

Or you can go one step further and upgrade to a smart blinds lift system. You can use voice activation technology to control your blinds and shades. Left the cottage but forgot to shut the blinds? Don’t sweat it. You can control your smart blinds through an app on your phone no matter where you are in the world. Now that’s convenient!

Your summer cottage may be your home away from home. Maybe it’s an Air BnB investment – or maybe it’s both! Either way, choosing the right window coverings can help you make your space look more stylish and make your stay more comfortable.
