Upcoming window treatment trends


Window treatments are a versatile home accessory that provide privacy, let the sun in on nice days and block the cold on winter ones. They’re also perfect for dressing up a wall and completing a living space that seems to be missing something in the decorative department. When it comes to what’s trending, there are plenty of options to choose from.

Window treatments have really taken on a whole different role in the marketplace. From maximalism and sustainability to florals, velvets and more layering, there are so many different trends to consider.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the upcoming styles to keep in mind if you’re looking for a new set of window treatments in the near future:

1. Layering treatments
If your current set up consists of a set of blinds, step things up a notch by layering treatments. This adds depth to the living space and can completely transform a room.

We are seeing more traversing come back with all the fabulous window treatment hardware and layering of window treatments. Clients really enjoy the added treatments of trims and banding.

“Layering is a method that offers privacy and style simultaneously.”

Franchise owner Shelley Rodner also sees value in layering treatments; it’s a method that offers privacy and style simultaneously.

“Consider wood or faux wood blinds for the first layer for sun control and privacy, and drapery panels to soften and frame’ the window,” Rodner said.

2. Clean, simple and classic shades
Roman shades are always trending, and they work virtually for any style room. They’re a classic option for a traditional style living room, and they have the clean lines that can work well in a modern set up. In lieu of blinds, roman shades can provide the privacy, style and shield from light needed without layering.

3. Motorized options
If you’re looking for a less traditional option that will take your living space to the next level, Rodner recommended going digital.

“I am also seeing a spike in the interest of motorization. especially for hard-to-reach windows,” she shared. “Many of my clients do not live in their home year-round. A smart motorized window treatment allows them to control things remotely regardless of where they may be at the time.”

4. Wider-slat blinds
If drapery and fabric treatments are out of the question, invest in a set of wider-slat blinds instead. Freshome recommended choosing a set with slats of at least 2.5 inches, as it looks sleeker, maximizes the view and eases the cleaning process. This is the perfect option in modern design but can work well in virtually any style home.
