Welcome to the new year! Now is the perfect time to update your home with that long overdue makeover. One of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to achieve this facelift is with new window treatments. Speak with a trained specialist at Altra Home Décor serving Phoenix and Peoria to find out about the hot trends in window fashions for 2017.
Keep It Light and Easy
This year, bringing the outside in with lighter fabrics and natural colors is a must. Gone are the heavy, weighted window treatments that make your home look like a fortified stronghold. It’s time to bring in sheer, lightweight fabrics made from natural fibers such as cotton, gauze, and linen. These lighter, brighter fabrics give your home an open airy feel. And don’t forget that a stark white wood or faux wood blind will also give your home that open, breezy feel. These blinds not only enhance the appearance of your home; their functionality is perfect for directing outside light. Beautiful white plantation shutters will also do the trick. Your rooms will look cool and crisp with these long-lasting window treatments. Here are some products to consider:
- Heritance® hardwood shutters
- NewStyle® hybrid shutters
- Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ shutters
- Alustra® Woven Textures®
- Provenance® Woven Wood Shades
Organic woven blinds and bamboo shades bring a natural element to your interior. It’s all about nature-inspired and eco-friendly materials and designs. These materials can be found in window treatments by Hunter Douglas or perhaps use stand-alone custom curtains designed specifically for you. Sustainability has been a major trend for the last few years, and by all accounts will remain as a hot trend for 2017. You may want to take a look at the recycled fabrics from Hunter Douglas. These friendly fabrics are partially made from recycled water bottles!
As found in nature, the hot new color this year is yellow-green. Not to be overlooked are charcoal and slate, which blend beautifully with the mineral colors from nature. Consider adding a bright sunshine yellow and stark white for a refreshed decor. Instead of sticking with solid fabrics, look for ones in creative patterns.
