Popularity in window treatments ebb and flow. Here are some of the latest window treatment trends identified in 2023:
- Cordless Blinds: Cordless blinds are a popular choice for homeowners who want to keep their homes safe and child-friendly. They are easy to operate and come in a variety of colors and styles. You simply operate the blind from the bottom to open and close it — without those dangerous cords. Great news for families with children and pets.
- Zebra Shades: Zebra shades are a unique type of window treatment that combines the functionality of blinds and the elegance of curtains. They are made of alternating sheer and solid fabric stripes that can be adjusted to control the amount of light that enters the room.
- Roller/Solar Shades: Roller/solar shades are a sleek and modern window treatment option that can be customized to fit any window size. They are available in a wide range of colors and patterns and can be motorized for added convenience. One of the biggest benefits of roller shades is their ease of use.
- Cellular Day & Night Shades: Cellular day & night shades are a versatile window treatment option that can be used to control light and privacy. They are made of two layers of fabric that can be adjusted to let in light or block it out completely.
- Smart Blinds: Smart blinds are a motorized high-tech window treatment option that can be controlled using a smartphone app or voice commands. They can be programmed to open and close at specific times of the day and can be integrated with other smart home devices. Just as you program your lights when you’re away, you can also program your window treatments.
- Sustainable Products: Eco-friendly window treatments are made of sustainable materials such as bamboo, jute, and recycled fabrics like Thibaut’s new recycled wool sheers. They are a great choice for homeowners who want to reduce their carbon footprint and create a more environmentally friendly home.
These are just a few of the latest window treatment trends. Stay tuned to see what’s ahead in 2024.
