When it comes to home decoration, windows are often overlooked in favor of “bigger” items like carpets and furnishing. And while these items are, of course, important, it’s often things like windows that tend to get overlooked. This is a shame, of course, because windows are one of those areas that not only really give you a chance to be creative, but they also serve to tie a room together into a unifying whole. Because of this, it’s important to stay on top of what the latest trends in window treatments might be. Here are five trends that are hot right now in Draper, Utah.
The first trend to discuss is not so much about style as it is material: organic, rather than synthetic material, is a hot ticket item right now. Whether you’re talking about wooden shades, bamboo, grasses, reeds or some other natural material, filling in your home with these eco-friendly window treatments not only looks good, but it feels good, too.
2) Bright Metallics
Another trend that is hot right now is the use of metallics. This can come in the form of large items such as golden drapes or silver curtains, or can be seen in smaller touches such as a light thread woven into a fabric, or a brass knob on the end of a curtain rod? There are a lot of ways to incorporate metallics into your window treatments, and they can all add a touch of bold elegance to your room.
3) Go High-Tech
One exciting area that has only recently begun to really become widespread is the use of high-tech window treatments. Technology can be incorporated into your window treatments in several different ways — raising, lowering, tilting blinds, etc — and through a number of different media including remote control, mobile apps, or smart home devices such as Google Home. However, you hook them up, high-tech windows are definitely a way to say your home has entered the twenty-first century!
4) Roman Shades
If you’re looking for a specific trend that people are falling in love with these days, you can’t get much hotter than Roman shades. Roman shades are pleated shades that stack up neatly and evenly when raised, folding in on themselves. The result is a functionally elegant window treatment that takes up a minimum amount of space.
5) Faux Wood
If you’re looking for the beauty of natural products like wood, but want them to be a little more durable and easy to clean, faux wood is a material that has remained popular for decades, and will likely stay that way for decades to come. They look naturally beautiful, but since they are made from high-quality PVC they can be cleaned simply with little more than a quick wipe-down.
These trends represent just the tip of the iceberg in what’s going on in window treatments today. For more ideas, or to get started on your own project, we suggest you talk to Brother’s Blinds today!
