While they may seem insignificant, the coverings for your windows can add or take away from the overall look of your home. With this in mind, wouldn’t it be useful knowing the latest trends when it comes to window coverings so you can enhance the look of your home as much as possible?
Here are the top three trends for window coverings:
1. Make the Curtains Look Prettier
If you opt to use curtains as your window coverings, make those curtains as pretty as you possibly can, or at least more pretty and attractive looking than they are now. Gone are the days where curtains would be just one solid color. Rather, the trend today is for curtains to have a pretty design on them to boost their overall look and augment the overall appearance of the room.
You don’t have to go out and spend money on new fancy looking curtains as well. Rather, you can turn improving your existing curtains into a fun DIY project for the weekend by painting or be stenciling your own pattern or be gluing on something such as fabric or beads.
2. Choose Organic Materials For Your Blinds
By the way and large, the biggest trend for window blinds is to use organic materials and natural wood such as bamboo. You may be under the impression that this means you’ll have to spend more money, but on the contrary, just the opposite is true. You can easily find bamboo or any natural type of blind for a very reasonable price at any of the major retailers. Organic blinds will add greater depth to your home and give it more of a cozy feeling.
Bamboo blinds also offer a number of distinct advantage that many other blind materials do not. They come in a wide array of different stains so you can select one that best matches the look of your home, they are environmentally friendly, and are long-lasting and require minimal maintenance.
3. If You’re Going To Use Shades, Use Roman Shades
If there’s one kind of shade that has withstood the test of time, it’s definitely Roman shades. Roman shades have just never fallen out of style, and if anything they’ve actually become more popular in recent years due to their versatility and the fact that they fit well in virtually any kind of room, from bathrooms to living rooms to business offices.
As far as price is concerned, Roman shades can vary greatly, ranging from the budget minded to the very expensive depending on the materials used. They are incredibly easy to install by even a novice (no professional installation is required) and will add true elegance to any room that you put them in.
