Custom Window Treatments From Innovative Openings

There is something very personal about selecting window treatments for your home or office.  Without professional guidance, balancing your window needs with product function as well as the style you envision for your home can be a challenge.

Window treatment design trends

Gray roller shades

Over the past 35 years, the design professionals at Innovative Openings have seen color and style choices in window fashions evolve. Product innovations have redefined the available options from a style and performance perspective many times, resulting in both window fashion trends and classics. We can help you find the balance between trendy and timeless that is right for you, considering the factors that go into window treatment choice.

  • 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.
  • Type:  Roller shades and roman shades are the fastest growing window treatment categories.
  • 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:  Motorized window coverings today 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.
