How sustainability is impacting our design choices
Keeping up with trends can be hard and, while not necessary, can be a great way to get inspiration when it is time to redecorate your home or office. With so many options available it can be a daunting task, but take heart, the team here at Heritage Blinds and Shutters are here to help!
Here is our pick of the 7 most inspiring and interesting window treatments as we head deep into 2022:
- Customised Window Treatments
- Earth Tones & Neutrals
- Home Automation & Smart Home Technology
- Minimalistic Sheers
- Natural & Sustainable Window Treatments
- Space Purpose.
A relatively popular and versatile option for window treatments, window blinds come in 3 varieties and are affordable, fitting most budgets. Roller Blinds, Vertical Blinds, and Venetian Blinds come in a variety of materials and colours and can be used in any room with a window though some are easier to clean than others, a fact that should be taken into consideration before purchase and installation.
Customised window treatments
Clients are embracing their own personalities and the personalities of their homes with the creation and addition of customised window treatments. By adding custom tapes, trims, and even embroidery to your window treatments and selecting hardware to tie it all together, you can make them as unique as you are.
Earthy tones & neutrals
While neutrals are nothing new, we are constantly coming up with new ways to incorporate them into our home’s décor. Over the last few years, we have found ourselves spending copious amounts of time indoors, and felt the desire to create spaces inside that bring the outdoors in. The first colours that typically come to mind and black and white, and whilst they are a good starter pallet it’s good to step away towards more earth-inspired tones such as Neo-mint, Graphite, and Natural linen colours.
You can also achieve a more neutral natural look by choosing sheer treatments to let the natural light shine through during the day.
Home automation & smart home technology
Bring on the tech! With the increased availability of home automation and smart home technology, we can achieve complete control over the natural light in our homes. Automated window treatments can synchronize multiple selections, set favourite positions, and even schedule timers so you can “set it and forget it”. Program your shades or blinds to block out harmful UV rays during the hottest times, and even program them for peak privacy when you want it most.
As we mentioned above, sheers can be a great way to let natural light in without it being too much. The sheer fabric creates a soft diffused light, and there are varieties out there that are constructed with unique front and back combinations to allow for maximum visibility outside whilst still maintaining privacy inside.
Natural & sustainable window treatments
With our renewed desire to connect with nature, bringing in elements of nature inside has become a big trend. From wooden grains and reads to rattan and other natural materials, we can add style to our sustainable homes without compromising on our values.
No longer are we expected to have the same window treatments throughout our homes, with the embrace of minimalism and one’s own personality we can choose without fear of judgement a variety of treatments for each room in our homes.
In your loungeroom you could choose to have curtains that ooze elegance, luxury, and originality whilst your bedroom curtains should lean more towards creating feelings of comfort and cosiness. Kitchens and dining spaces are commonly well populated and used areas and fit best with materials that are practical whilst being beautiful, pleasant, and cheerful.
