It can be a challenge to keep up these days. Trends in fashion, design and technology seem to change at breakneck speed. There are lots of options to choose from. But only the best ideas, products and services are sustainable as the newest trends come along to take their place.
When it comes to home decorating and home improvement trends, Window treatments can be seen as the focal point of almost any room, so homeowners and designers alike pay special attention to them. Here are a few Window Covering ideas that are trending right now:
Stripes: Window treatments that display solid lines make a dramatic and elegant statement. This illusion can be achieved through vertical blinds, sophisticated plantation shutters and many styles of shades.
Organic Materials: Everything from bamboo to hardwood grains are now being used to make custom made shutters, blinds and shades. These materials can add an organic quality to your home while accenting the other earth tones in your decor.
Cool tones: The ocean and sky lend inspiration to the color palette found in many modern window treatments, particularly in softer blues and greens that are trending now. Accompanying shades of earth and sand – gold and brown – are used to ground the aquatic atmospheric tones.
Technology: While look and function are most important in selecting the right window treatment for your home, modern technology is now adding the newest twist in form and function. For example, seamless motorization now make it possible for blinds and shades to be opened and closed with just the flick of a switch or the touch of a button.
