Window treatments often turn into a design challenge or major investment, but let’s face it: If you neglect your windows in favor of a different design focus, you’ll be left with a bare view. Simple, sleek lines are dominating window fashions in everything from flowing drapes to chrome decorative hardware. Creating sleek silhouettes against a window instantly lends a clean, modern look to any window and room!
Luxury fabrics key in this category are linens, cottons mixed with some durable polyesters. While the overall design trend leans toward simplicity, this trend will remain popular with those who desire embellishment and luxury, this trend includes sparkling crystal, beaded tassels and lavish embellishments on every element of the window — hardware, trimmings and fabric.
Exposed wood grain in blinds and natural woven shades are joining the ranks of bamboo as popular choices. Wood is making a comeback in decorative hardware, bamboo, birch and maple are the materials of choice for the newest finials and pulls!
Technology plays such a huge role in our lives and yet we yearn for simplicity. Window shades can now be controlled through your mobile device with many options to control and make your life simple. But just because your windows have gone high-tech, it doesn’t mean they have to be stark and uninviting. Layering fabrics with high-thread-count cottons is one trend sure to cozy up a window.
Green design is becoming a popular trend from consumers looking to combat allergies to those looking for heat- or cold-repellent window coverings.
Shades and blinds have always been about keeping light out, but now they can also save you money on your heating and cooling bills. Honeycomb shades are tech meets nature. They’re made of a woven polyester that, combined with the shape of the bee honeycomb, creates a detour for the heat or the cold to not go into your home. For larger, sliding glass windows, the solar panels will reduce glare, UV penetration and heat transfer.
