New year, new styles, new trends! New window treatments! Windows are such an integral part of any home. They let in natural light, allow for cross ventilation and provide energy efficiency. They can also increase a home’s resale value. All great benefits that do require some investment, care and thoughtful consideration. 2023 is full of exciting new trends for your window treatments and we’ll cover them all today. What in the windows is happening this year??? Let’s talk about it!
Modern, clean lines. Simplicity is one trend to be on the lookout for this year. And Roman shades or traditional shutters are how you can achieve it.
Roman shades, top up, bottom down allow light to come in while also providing privacy.
Plantation shutters can add character and elegance – and they’re super easy to operate. In addition to wood and faux wood plantation shutters, you can choose moisture-resistant, light control, and even insulated options.
Cellular shades aka honeycomb shades are gaining traction and popularity! They provide a sleek, clean look to any room. Energy efficiency is the name of their game throughout the entire year. Cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, this is due to their insulating cell design.
To really drive home the clean and simple look of 2023, consider inside mount treatments. Shades, shutters, or blinds can often be mounted to the inside of the window, leaving the window frame free from any sort of covering.
While shades and shutters come in a variety of colors and finishes, if you really want to enhance the overall look of the room and add to the decor: curtains, drapes, valances and hardware can really pull a room together. These all pair nicely with shades and shutters as well..
This year, sheer curtains are in style, they add color, texture, and daytime privacy without blocking out the beautiful natural light.
Energy efficiency is an important element these days in our homes and linen curtains are the frontrunners for the year in this department. With the proper lining, they can control the heat and amount of direct sunlight, naturally cooling the room. And they come in such a variety of fabrics, colors, finishes that they can be decorative and functional!
Valances can be a valued and integrated part of a room. They add dimension and weight to your window as well as height to the room. They can bring a room together and control the shape of a window and are a great opportunity to feature a unique fabric pattern. They also serve a functional purpose by covering up hardware, curtain rods, and anything else at the top of a window you might want to adorn.
Hardware comes in all shapes and sizes, many of them beautiful and embellishing! This year, metal hardware is where it’s at and can be chosen to complement the window treatment, furniture, or just add a little jazz to the room.
Textures and styles are our last trend to examine for 2023. This year, it’s all about natural textures and palettes. For those of you enticed by the clean and simple look, go for the neutral palettes, the natural linens, these will also bring with them a warm and welcoming feeling to the space. Environmentally friendly materials are making their way onto the scene in a big way in the window world this year. Bamboo, hemp, recycled fabrics and eco-friendly fabrics are all excellent ways to support the environment and bring a peaceful feeling into your home by adding natural elements to it. Aside from the neutral feels of the modern, clean palette, bold patterns for curtains, drapes and valances have made a big comeback! Geometrics and bright colors, botanical, and grand millennial styles are great options to explore this year. Don’t be afraid to have some fun with your window treatments! Another elegant but exciting trend for 2023 is matching your wall paint and shades together. This brings a cohesive energy to any room and will make your home stand out with this inspiring new look.
