Want to make your home a stylish sanctuary?
Ready to leave behind the old and move forward with the new?
After the ups and downs of 2020, now’s the time for a fresh start! Window treatment trends for 2021 reflect that. They also demonstrate the ways in which we’ve changed our attitudes toward home life and how we’ve adapted to new ways of nesting. Find out what’s new — and what’s holding strong — in window treatment trends this year.
2021 Trending Colors
Between remote work and the skipping of social events, Americans are spending more time than ever at home. As a result, many are creating environments that are both soothing and comforting. This means we’ll be seeing plenty of calming blues and greens in window treatments. Pantone’s choice of “Ultimate Gray” this year may mean shades of gray will also continue growing in popularity.
Bright & Airy Colors, Fabrics & Prints
Speaking of Pantone… they released not one but two colors of the year for 2021. In addition to “Ultimate Gray” the other color is “Illuminating,” a bright, vibrant yellow. You may want to choose window coverings in this shade—or a floral retro pattern—to develop a more optimistic attitude about the days ahead. And don’t forget Boho-inspired neutral color palates and botanical-themed patterns in fabrics, which continue to be hot sellers.
Increased natural light is also an important part of this trend. So, look for minimalistic window coverings in semi-opaque fabrics. Sheers, in particular, are making a comeback as standalone curtains in some rooms.
There are also many Roman shades and honeycomb shade designed with natural light in mind. Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Duolite shades are another great option. With dual shades, you can pull one down during daytime hours to let sunlight through; then, pull the second one down at night for light blocking during bedtime hours.
Outdoor Influences in Materials
Too much time inside is giving many people a desire to be in the great outdoors. We saw this reflected in many of the fabric and texture trends of 2020. Now, it’s carrying over into the new year as well.
- Woven blinds made of bamboo and other natural materials
- Linen and muslin draperies
- Textured fabrics
- Wood blinds
More environmentally friendly materials will be big. Likewise, farmhouse-inspired washed wood in blinds and shutters will remain popular.
