The New Year is almost here! That means it’s time to starting making plans for 2017. One of the things we’ll be doing is making sure we know what trends are coming to window treatments in the next year. By staying at the forefront of the trends, we can make sure that we always have what our customers need in stock and ready to go. So what’s hot in window treatments for 2017? Here are some of the rising stars we’re seeing!

Bold Colors

Gone are the days where your curtains needed to fade into the background of your room. Today, people are picking brighter and bolder colors that complement their decor. Bright curtains are a great way to make a window a statement piece in your room. We’re especially seeing a lot of greens and reds on the rising trends, a change from the popular grays and creams of the past several years.

Natural Materials

More people are trying to be eco-friendly in every aspect of their lives. That eco-friendliness often translates into a love of all things natural. That’s why you’ll be seeing a lot of window treatments in 2017 made from natural materials. Bamboo, rattan, and other materials are all great for window treatments and make the space feel more natural and balanced.

More Automation

Motorized blinds are a hot commodity in the window treatment market right now, and it’s no wonder. Homes are becoming smarter as everything we own seems to be connected to a remote or a smartphone app. Window treatments are no exception. Open and shut your windows at the touch of a button and get the perfect balance in your room no matter how high your windows might be. You won’t even have to leave your chair!

Unique Shapes

While classic straight drapes are still popular, people are getting more adventurous with their window dressing and embracing more complex shapes. We suspect there will be more of this in 2017, too. You’ll see window treatments with custom shapes at the top and bottom, mirroring other objects in the room or even the shape of the window itself. It’s a great way to add character to your window treatments and make them more dramatic.

Blind Resurgence

Blinds seemed to be sort of out-of-vogue for a few years, but they are back in a big way. A lot of people appreciate being about to maintain their privacy while still letting in light, something that’s easier to do with blinds than with some curtains. Blinds are also easier to clean and won’t have to be thrown in the wash periodically like your curtains will. You’ll see more blinds on windows in 2017 for sure.
