8 Window Treatment Trends to Try Out in 2020

8 Window Treatment Trends to Try Out in 2020

Your window treatments are an important part of your interior design, they can make or break the look of a room. Not only do they need to look the part, but they also need to give you your privacy from the outside world and keep out draughts and cold weather.

Any interior designer will tell you that window treatments can be the focal point of any room and can make or break your aesthetic. Custom fitted blinds represent great value for money as they last much longer than most off-the-shelf designs.

Far beyond being purely functional, your window treatments reflect the look of your home, from opulent glamour, to bold and colourful, there are countless different looks to choose from.

We’ve rounded up some popular window treatment trends that we think are going to be big in 2020.

1. Natural Finishes

The popularity of natural material is on the rise. Blinds made from materials such as grasses, hemp, bamboo and rattan are beautiful alternatives to fabric or patterned blinds. They also add texture to your room. Many of these materials are sustainably sourced, making them ideal for those looking to reduce their environmental impact. Natural finishes also work with most colours, meaning that you can change your colour scheme in the future without having to change your blinds.

2. Roman Blinds

Roman blinds fell out of favour for a while as they were considered a cheap, often temporary solution to dressing a window. They weren’t really taken seriously as a stylish option for a home. They’re now making a comeback due to the wide range of textures and materials they are available in. You need to find the right balance between aesthetics and functionality.

A roman blind is a simple and uncluttered design perfect for smaller windows that might get overwhelmed by a more complicated treatment.

Roman blinds are immensely practical and are great choices for blocking out light, ensuring privacy, and maintaining warmth in a room, saving you money on your energy bills. Choosing the right style of blinds can make your room,

There are colours and patterns for every taste, from a bold print to a neutral shade. Use them by themselves for a modern minimalist feel or pair them with drapes for a layered look.

3. Pure White Fabrics

If your home doesn’t have many windows, or they are small, you’re going to want to make the most of any natural light. Sheer white panels are an elegant solution that allows maximum light. Using sheer panels is advisable if privacy is an issue and you want to keep the curtains closed without blocking out all of the natural light.

They will also make the room feel larger, especially if you take the panels to the floor, giving an ethereal look.

4. Floor to Ceiling Curtains

Curtains don’t need to hang from the top of the window frame. Fit curtain poles to the ceiling (or the highest point available, and run curtains all the way to the floor. Not only will the room look taller than it is, but it will make it feel more spacious too. Great for smaller rooms or rooms with low ceilings, this is an old interior design technique to trick the eye into believing the room is much larger than it is.

This look works with any style of decor, from luxurious velvets to voile panels.

5. Bold Colours

For years, interior design looks have been favouring clean, contemporary and neutral shades. Break the rules and go for bold colours and patterns. To bring the look together, pick up the same bold colours in some of your accessories, lamps and cushions.

6. Wooden Shutters

The traditional wooden plantation-style shutter is a timeless classic that also works well with the contemporary modern look. Available in a range of colours, classic white is a good all-rounder but seek out other shades and finishes.

7. Window Decals

Decals are becoming hugely popular by those looking to do some interior design on a budget. The range of patterns and finishes are perfect for making a statement. Decals are great for small windows that are too small for a traditional window treatment but also want privacy and natural light. You’re also unlikely to see anyone with the same design.

Designs can range from a simple frosted look through to a stained glass window effect.

8. Layering

The layering of different window coverings, textures and materials is regaining its popularity becoming quote chintzy back in the 90s. The look usually involves solar or blackout blinds to provide the practical aspects with decorative drapes and fabrics to bring the look together. Larger rooms can handle a bolder layered look. They’ll also be a great solution for preventing drafts and warming up a room. However, if your windows are small, go for lighter, sheerer fabrics that let in the light.
