Windows are inevitably the focal point that will set the tone and structure of your decorating plan, so itâ€™s important to take how youâ€™ll accessorize them into consideration. Here are some window treatment trends, both timeless and new, that can help guide your decisions when making purchases.
- Neutrals. If you just donâ€™t know what to choose, remember that you canâ€™t go wrong with neutral-colored window treatments. Neutrals are timeless, complimenting any homeâ€™s design. Keep in mind that neutral doesnâ€™t have to be limited to tan, white or off-white. Many window treatment styles come in a variety of neutral color tones, and are offered in a variety of fabrics, both plain and textured, making them look bravo, rather than bland.
- Sheers. Transparent sheers do double duty, providing a hint of privacy, while letting the sun in. Where opaque fabrics can close a room in, sheers open them up. Sitting and dining rooms, as well as home offices, are often ideal places to hang sheers.
- Layering. Layering your window treatments is a wonderful way to add extra drama and detail. When it comes to layering, there are different ways it can be done: sheers with opaques, sheers with sheers, drapes with roman shades and blackout shades with sheer shades, are a small handful of options to try. When layering, itâ€™s always best to stick with complimentary, rather than contrasting colors to give it a cohesive look.
- Minimalism. On the flip side of layering, you have the minimalist approach, which is to under-treat the window. Start with something understated like a shade and then add on if needed. Depending on the style of the room, less can be more.
- Patterns and bold, rich colors. Patterns can be intimidating, but once you take the plunge, they can be amazing for your space. Two trending patterns that donâ€™t seem to be going anywhere for a while are geometrics and large-scale florals. If neither of those fit your style, opt for something like a timeless stripe instead. Feeling bold? Go for a whimsical motif. When it comes to color, bold, rich colors work really well in rooms that have a good amount or wood furniture or furniture covered in neutral fabrics.
- Creative hardware. Swags and valances are being ousted by creative hardware. Rods, finials and tie-backs made of materials such as wood, glass, ceramic and metal are taking center stage, giving windows a fresh, new look. But those arenâ€™t your only options. Things like branches, fishing rods, hockey sticks, and rods wrapped in ribbons are other creative ways to finish off the look.
