The new year is upon us. It’s time to upgrade, which includes updating your window treatments. It doesn’t matter what your preferred style is, whether you like a dark, gothic environment or upbeat, festive surroundings, you can always improve.
Even if you want to change up the style of your window treatments completely, here are some ideas for updating your home with stylish window treatments.
All Natural Window Treatments
If you’re looking for an all-natural style, try out some woven woods or cellular shades. Woven woods are natural shades made out of wood. These sheer shades have a relaxed style, and it’ll give the room a bohemian look.
Cellular shades, also called honeycomb shades, give a similar look. These can be made out of wood and bamboo. The reason it’s also called honeycomb shades is they contain pockets shaped like honeycombs. These pockets aren’t only visually appealing, but they also provide extra insulation, keeping heat from escaping or entering the home.
Other all natural window treatments you can try out are wooden blinds, faux wood blinds, and wooden shutters.
Welcome the Sunlight
This style consists of bright rooms and letting in a bunch of sunlight. If you have large windows, this style can be the right one for you. To welcome the sunlight, you want sheer blinds, shades, or curtains. You should be looking to get them in white or bright colors.
Black It Out
Blackout window treatments are mainly concerned with blocking the sunlight rather than letting it in. This style of shades or blinds is great for a sleek, office setting or for dark, gothic-style rooms.
Metals Are Back in Style
Adding metallic features to your window treatments brings back an old-school style, which happens to be popular again. This includes hanging curtains from metallic bars and using aluminum blinds. Silver with white or gold with black are popular color combinations for this style.
The Hi-Tech Environment
We’re in a time where technology is at the helm of society. For a sleek, hi-tech style, use cordless, motorized window treatments. This style works especially well with large windows and screen doors.
The Luxury Look
Want to flaunt your stuff at home? Living the life of luxury comes with its costs – you don’t want to cut corners when it comes to this style. This is all about using high-end fabrics with your window treatments: silk, velvet, and suede.
These are just a few styles to get you started. If you’d like to browse our collection of window treatments, get in touch to schedule an appointment.
