Window Treatment Trends


Nothing can transform a room as quickly and effectively as a well thought out, beautifully designed window treatment. Window treatments don`t just dress up a window; they`ll also tone in with the shades and textures of your furniture and flooring. Whether you`re trying to create a look that`s casual or formal, whimsical or elegant, innovative or traditional, the right window treatment will go a long way toward creating the distinctive look and ambiance you`re aiming for.

If you`d like to update your living spaces, then adding new blinds, curtains or window shades can help you to modernize the most outdated room. Here are a few of today`s most fashionable decorator trends in window treatments.

Wood Grains

If you`ve been looking at model showcase homes recently, you`ve probably noticed that at least one room will have wood grain blinds covering the windows. Today, wood grain blinds are more popular than ever and can be found in a variety of woods. In past years, bamboo was especially popular, not only because it`s a relatively inexpensive and sustainable wood, but also because of its lightweight texture. Within the last several years, however, decorators have started to favor wood grains such as birch, maple, cherry and mahogany.

Decorators are also enthusiastic about some of the newer wood grain blinds with woven accents reminiscent of grass or bamboo reeds. These look especially decorative in a casual, airy room with lightweight wood and wicker furnishings.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds continue to be popular with homeowners and decorators alike. Seen from a distance, vertical blinds give a first impression of sharply pleated curtains and for many homeowners they offer far more visual appeal than traditional horizontal blinds. Vertical blinds are available in both wood grains and fabrics and are made to fit just about any shape or size of window.

Luxury Fabrics

If you think that velvets and brocades are only suitable for the inhabitants of Downton Abbey, then think again. Today`s decorators are waxing enthusiastic over the most luxurious silks, crushed velvets and damasks, even for the smallest of areas.

Luxury window fabrics can dress up the plainest room and make it sparkle with rich jewel tones. Just add a few gold fringed tassels and your room will be fit for royalty. If you prefer, you can also opt for a more contemporary feel by choosing luxury window treatments made of faux fur, suede or leather.

Pencil Pleat Curtains

Pencil pleat curtains are back in style and more popular than ever. With their thin, soft precision pleats, they add texture and a touch of traditional elegance to any window.

You may associate pencil pleat curtains with your grandmother`s house, but today`s pencil pleat styles are made in modern, no-wrinkle fabrics and colors. Best of all, they require very little maintenance, so you don`t have to worry about ironing those tiny pleats all day the way that your ancestors did.

Shades in Bold Prints

If you`re thinking about buying shades, it`s time to go for the bold choices. Shades are hot right now, especially in big floral, striped and geometric prints that are reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s. Relatively inexpensive compared to other window treatments, brightly patterned shades can bring a welcome deluge of color that will liven up even the most boring, monochromatic room.

Whether you`re looking at pencil pleat curtains or other fashionable designs, make sure that you choose something that you like and will enjoy living with. In the end, the most modern trends may not appeal to you and you may prefer something more traditional. The good news is that with the wide variety of materials, styles and colors available, you`re sure to find whatever you`re looking for, whether it`s a traditional, softly billowing pencil pleat curtain or a heavy, luxurious royal purple brocade complete with gold tassels.
