Trends in Window Treatment for 2019
For those looking to update their window furnishings in 2019, finding out about the latest trends is going to be important. The good news is you have plenty of options nowadays, including luxurious made to measure curtains and high tech blinds, not to mention gloriously stylish shutters. Here’s our quick guide to what’s hot over the next twelve months.
We tend to go for the same design when we put up curtains but contrast is in for 2019. Mixing up textures and even colours can add greater definition to a room and your window area. It’s time to think out of the box a little more and try some new approaches if you want a window treatment that really says something about your home and your personality.
Introducing contrast in your interior design adds point of interest in any room but getting it right can be challenging. That’s why working with a design specialist can help.
Pay Special Attention to Colour
While we often consider design aesthetic when it comes to curtains, we do it less for blinds and shutters. Why this has been the case, we’re not entirely sure. Focusing on the colour of your window treatment adds vibrancy and panache to your interior design so don’t be afraid to try something different.
There are a couple of colour trends that are proving popular this year. These include yellow which can create a really welcoming and warm looking room. Darker colours are also in vogue, especially in the bedroom where they add a touch of decadence and, dare we say it, romance.
Metallic colours are also proving popular, especially when it comes to blinds. Clean and elegant looking, especially in relation to blinds with narrower slats, you’ll quickly create something that is easy to maintain and helps you control the amount of light in each room but which looks great too.
Smart Blinds Are Popular
Whether it’s the fact that we love gadgets or just the wow factor which impresses friends and neighbours, smart blinds have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Mechanised installations enable you to lift, lower and open blinds with a touch of a button on your smartphone console – you can even open your blinds while you’re at the office. All you need is the app and a Wi-Fi connection.
Bedroom Shutters Add Elegance
If you want to create a bedroom space that has elegance, shutters may be the more expensive option but they look absolutely fabulous. Delivering a more continental appearance, shutters have become popular in recent times because they also act as an extra layer of sound insulation.
Sheer curtains or blinds are other options that are proving popular this year. While they provide you the right amount of privacy, these materials allow enough natural light through to create atmosphere and ambience in your home. Perfect for the summer months, they give you a middle ground between opening and closing your curtains or blinds.
