Window treatment design trends for blinds, shades, shutters and drapes

HD Pirouette Sheer Shadings

Over the past 35 years, the design professionals at Innovative Openings have seen color and style choices in window fashions evolve. There is nothing basic about blinds and shades today. The category of blinds and shades has come to describe most interior window treatments including louvered blinds, sophisticated shade systems, plantation shutters and drapery alternative solutions.

Product innovations have redefined the available products from a style and performance perspective many times.  Many of the blind and shade choices we offfer simply did not exist when many homeowners made their last window treatment purchase. We can help you find the balance between trendy and timeless that is right for you.

Selecting the right blinds and shades for your windows

Vignette Roman Shades from Hunter DouglasThere are many factors to consider:

  • Colors:  Both on-trend and time tested, gray is the new neutral white. Grays with compelling textures are playing an increasing role in home design.
  • Function: Do you need sun protection, privacy, room darkening, glare control, or a design element to redefine a room style.
  • Type:  Blinds, shades, shutters, and drapes that louver, roll, fold, and slide over your windows.  The solutions are brilliant.
  • Light control: Fabrics and materials offer a full range of opacities, affecting both light control and privacy levels. Combining two levels in a single treatment, like sheer and blackout, offers both versatility and efficiency.
  • Operation control:  Child safety with blind cords has lead to a new generation of manual and motorized shade operators.  Cordless blinds and retractable cord operated shades have become the ideal window treatment operating solution.
  • Automation:  Motorized blinds and shades can be controlled by your phone or tablet.  Wifi based apps allow most window treatments to be easily automated and programmed to scenes that control light throughout the day.
