The Latest Window Treatment Trends of 2020: How to Update Your Home
Updating your window treatments is a great way to give your home a fresh look this new year. To revamp your home interiors, let’s look at the most inspiring window treatment trends of 2020.
1) Multi-Coloured Floral Drapes
2020 is the year to make a style statement by embracing bold motifs. Celebrate exuberant floral prints in lush colour combinations by adding drapes featuring multi-coloured floral designs. These vibrant and dramatic blooms are perfect to make windows the focal point of a room. To take this trend to the next level, choose drapes with floral motifs in a darker palette. This is an ideal way to inject style and energy into otherwise outdated home décor without going overboard.
2) Attractive Drapery Hardware
Since the focus is back on draperies, drapery hardware has also become important. Grommets, stylish rods, eyelets, finials, and tiebacks made with wood, metal, glass or ceramic look both decorative and fashionable. Instead of elaborate swags or valances, invest your resources into stylish hardware.
3) Muted Yellow Ochre Café Curtains
One trend celebrates boldness while the other cherishes earthy tones. Muted yellow ochre café curtains complement the wood accents in your home décor. If you have a farmhouse-style kitchen, this mellow yellow window covering will contrast beautifully with that rustic colour scheme and décor, thus highlighting an alluring mid-century vibe.
4) Rattan Blinds
Some trends are so simple that they need no other addition to make an impression. One such window treatment trend for 2020 is rattan blinds that let in a little natural light while still offering privacy. This is the latest addition to the increasing popular trend of using natural products. These blinds not only add natural warmth to a living space but also accentuate colourful home décor prints. For example, if your home is decorated with wallpaper featuring attractive prints, the simplicity of rattan blinds will balance it.
5) Motorized Shades
As more and more houses are coming online as smart homes, motorization is becoming increasingly popular. That’s why the trend of motorized shades is here to stay. These cordless window treatments are not only super convenient but also safe for children. Add smart home technology to the latest window covering trend and give your living space an updated look.
6) Mix and Match
Combining window treatments to create a layered effect will never go out of style. It’s easy to bring this trend home by adding one layer of complementary window coverings to an existing one. For example, if you have California shutters, accentuate them with roman shades to add both colour and practicality to your windows while following the latest fashion. Another way to incorporate this trend is to complement Venetian blinds with fabric curtains for a sophisticated look.
7) Country Checks
Country checks are making a comeback in window fashion because their comforting appeal and warmth are unparalleled. Use café curtains, roman blinds, curtains or other custom draperies to add a cozy charm with these playful checks. To experiment with the look, go for muted shades and bold checks. Incorporating this trend will offer a beautiful blend of traditional comfort and contemporary appeal to your interior décor.
8) Lilac Curtains
Since we’re entering a new decade, it’s time to leave behind the conventional and opt for contemporary styles that are also unique. Lilac curtains are the most sought-after trend of the new year because of their not-so-traditional appeal. Add these beautiful curtains if you want to bet on something different. This trend is best to incorporate if you choose transparent curtains or have your home painted in a lighter hue and furniture in a lighter shade.
9) Pink Sheers
Apart from introducing natural elements into window fashion, airy and open spaces are also in vogue. One window covering style that helps achieve that look is pink sheers. They make a whimsical design statement that’s ideal for accentuating warm leather furniture and wood accents. These dreamy sheers can make your living space look brighter while letting in more natural light.
10) Vibrant Shutters
Gone are the days when shutters only seemed to come in shades of white, black or brown. 2020 brings with it colourful shutters. This easy-to-incorporate idea is your best bet if you want to give your windows a fashionable facelift without investing much time. If your house is already outfitted with shutters, all you need for an upgrade is a coat of paint that matches your home’s existing colour scheme.
