One thing we learned from 2020 was how important our living spaces can be to our mental health, and window treatment plays a pivotal role.
When we were forced to stay home, we suddenly noticed every single detail of our four walls. Hardware stores saw a huge influx of sales as people around the country decided to make some upgrades to their homes, and we were delighted to help.
As we make the turn into 2021, we’re excited to talk with customers about some of the best trends for interior design—specifically for window coverings. Here are the top trends in window treatments for the coming year.
The clean and ultramodern look of roller shades has become incredibly popular. With a variety of materials, it’s easy to make roller shades fit with your overall design aesthetic. Neutral canvas or natural materials are the most common, utilizing a “less-is-more” approach to functional window coverings. Automation also makes roller shades an excellent option for smart homes and striving for energy efficiency.
If you like the streamlined look of roller shades but crave more style or a softer touch, fabric Roman shades are an excellent choice. Use Roman shades to bring in more color or pattern into an otherwise monochromatic room. Lush fabrics can also bring an element of texture into a room that will soften and warm your space.
After years of simplistic, basic designs dominating the modern farmhouse style, we’re fascinated by the return of florals—retro florals to be exact. These retro floral patterns are usually in light pastels with small, repetitive prints which make for the perfect injection of whimsy into your living space without overwhelming your design. We’ve seen floral designs for curtains, roller shades, Roman shades, valances, and even cushy window seat upholstery.
Dramatic Curtain Rods & Fixtures
Gone are the days of a plain white curtain rod. The function of your curtain rods are vital, but why not add a little extra style? Use your curtain fixtures to make a statement. We recommend using the largest and longest curtain rods you can find, and hanging them as high as you can above your windows to increase the feeling of height and space. Metallic options are total show-stoppers, such as brass, copper, or chrome. The finials on the ends of your curtain rods should be an expression of your personality and style, so choose something fun like faceted crystal or dramatic iron-woven designs.
The open floor plan is here to stay, and homeowners are eager to maximize their natural light and views. A major trend is to choose high-light materials and configurations to brighten up any space. Whether that means linen shades, sheer curtains, large-slat shutters, or disappearing roller shades, consider which types of window treatments could diffuse the most light into your space.
