Custom Window Treatment Trends

Some industries move fast. A well-trained musician will be able to guess if a song was released in 1984 or 1985, and culinary trends have resulted in foods that were once the hippest thing around largely being seen as fads. In basic construction, the blinds, shades, shutters, curtains, and draperies that most of us use are not that different from the ones that were used decades or even centuries ago, but window fashions don’t exist in a vacuum. Because of this, they are subject to the push and pull of fashion, innovation, and technology, just like everything else. If you find yourself curious about what the times hold for the world of window coverings, stay tuned. Keep reading to let the team at Blinds & Designs tell you about three exciting custom window treatment trends for homes near Fletcher, North Carolina.

Trend #1. Warm It Up

Through the 2000s and 2010s, the main trends for colors erred on the side of the sleek and sterile. This was a great way to make spaces feel clean and professional, but contemporary homeowners want their homes to feel homier and less like an office or showroom. A great way to do that is to swap out your neutral color palette. Neutrals are still a great way to ensure that your window fashions are going to match your décor, but when it comes to custom window treatment trends, warm grays, taupes, and browns are going to be the hot colors rather than whites, cool grays, and beiges.

Trend #2. It’s Not Hard to Avoid Hardware

Just because we are stepping away from the sleek, futuristic design choices of the last decade doesn’t mean that we’ve stopped loving a streamlined silhouette. This can be difficult to achieve as window coverings are adjusted through operation hardware that is often less than visually appealing. Because of this, one of the hottest custom window treatment trends is to opt for window fashions that have concealed or discrete operation hardware. Hunter Douglas window treatments like the Vignette® Roman shade collection feature hardware that is concealed in the rear of the shade. However, for the sleekest silhouette possible, our new Gen 3 of Hunter Douglas PowerView® Automation eliminates the need for operation hardware entirely, thanks to Bluetooth capabilities and voice recognition through your smart home device.

Trend #3. Control Your Light

We don’t all have the same homes or needs, so why do so many window fashions have the same middle-of-the-road approach to light control? If you find yourself looking for something closer to light filtration, or something more complete like blackout capabilities, Hunter Douglas has you covered for all the best custom window treatment trends. Hunter Douglas allows you to customize your experience with all of their window coverings, allowing you to add additional fabric liners to many of their shades for more complete light control, as well as offering several sheer shadings for a more nuanced approach to light filtration.

Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades are an on-trend way to filter your light and enjoy your views from a porch, deck, or sunroom. Enjoy your multi-use spaces free from insects and protect your family and belongings from the sun’s UV rays with these on-trend shadings.
