Window Treatment Trends

transitional shades

If you’re still holding on to those aluminum mini-blinds, this might be a good time to upgrade to something new!

You’ll see a greater emphasis on easy-to-use, simple window treatments, including Transitional Shades (also referred to as Dual or Zebra Shades) and Roller Shades, due to the low amount of maintenance required and the clean, clutter-free look.

Honeycomb or Cellular Shades are also still very much in style, with more colours and fabrics available than ever before. One advantage of these popular shades is that they will add some insulation to your windows, helping keep your heating and/or cooling costs down.

As for colour trends, dark, warmer tones are becoming more popular with homeowners. Choosing bolder colours also helps to break up the usually very neutral colours that most home interiors are painted today.

Motorized Blinds are also becoming an indispensable feature in window coverings. Whether you plan to control your shades by remote, by an app on your phone or tablet or via automation network in your home or business, enjoy the convenience of motorized shades in a wide range of window treatment types.
