Are Window Treatments Still In Style?
Window treatments provide both light control and privacy; two things that will never go out of style! Whether you need window treatments for an office or your home, explore these popular window treatment trends in 2021.
Cellular Honeycomb Shades
Cellular honeycomb shades are an excellent choice for those who are concerned about saving energy. Conserving energy is at the forefront of many people’s minds in 2021, so it makes sense why these window treatments have grown in popularity. The Duette Honeycomb Shades offer a unique construction that traps air inside and creates a layer of insulation between the room’s interior and the window. They can help a room stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer so you can use less electricity and keep the room at a comfortable temperature year-round.
Real wooden blinds are a great way to give your home or office a natural warmth. Many people in 2021 are choosing to decorate their homes with more natural and neutral colors and textures, so wooden blinds like those from Parkland are a perfect addition to enhance the decor and add effective light control. For those who live in very humid climates, wooden blinds may not have the longevity you want, so opting for metal blinds with the appearance of real wood will do the trick. EverWood has a selection of long-lasting blinds with a TruGrain finish.
Motorized Blinds and Shades
The fewer things we can touch these days, the better! Hunter Douglas offers PowerView Automation for precise and convenient control. With motorized blinds and shades, you can control the light in a room with ease. Your window treatments are programmable and can be operated with the Pebble Remote Control or through voice activation like Alexa or Siri. You can also control your blinds when you’re home or away with the PowerView app. Talk about the ultimate convenience!
Window Treatment Trends That Are Out for 2021
Moving into a new year has caused many people away from certain styles of window treatments.
Cut the Cord
There are still plenty of blinds with cords that you can find for sale, but more and more people are getting rid of the cord and opting for a cordless option. It is not only better looking, but it is also much safer, especially if you have small children or pets that could get tangled up in the loose cords. Cordless lifted blinds are not only sleek looking but are so easy to operate.
Many people are shying away from busy patterned window treatments and instead opting for solid colors or understated fabric patterns with just 1 or 2 textures per window area. Sometimes more is less when it comes to window treatments!
While it is fun to be trendy and choose bold colors for your window treatments, this year, many people are choosing more neutral and natural colors for their blinds, curtains, and shutters. Gray-tone wood grain is becoming particularly popular for shutters.
