Window coverings are used for a multitude of different reasons, from providing privacy, blocking out light, adding a layer of style and design and so much more. Just as they provide a large array of uses, you can also find multiple different types and styles of window coverings ranging from all budgets to all styles ensuring that you can find the perfect set, or sets, to complete your home. So, with so many options to choose from, what are the most popular styles being used in homes today?
Roller shades, as well as Roman shades are growing in popularity as they create a sleek and clean look, both visually appealing as well as functional. Being able to roll up the shades keeps the windows looking organized and neat without sacrificing on shade or light filtrations. With a large range of colors as well as styles when it comes to light filtration as well as room darkening, you can find the perfect shade and style to provide the exact window treatment needed for your space. A few popular options are currently charcoal as well as more patterned shades that are referred to as “granny-chic.”
Shutters and Blinds
Often the go-to when it comes to window coverings, traditional blinds and shutters have come a long way in the past few years. Many options are now cordless, while much safer for both children and pets, the cordless blinds can keep the blind base level and help you avoid fighting with the strings to level out both sides of the blinds. Additionally, much like with roller shades, shutters and blinds also come in a large range of styles, a few of the most popular currently being white- or bamboo-colored blinds as well as plantation style shutters.
Motorized Window Coverings
Motorized blinds are no longer a think of the future or only for the wealthy and many are becoming a more standard option amongst homeowner’s and renters. With the ability to lift, lower, open, and close your blinds without having to get off the couch, it’s easy to see why so many homeowners love this option. Motorized blinds can be found in nearly all styles as the technology is now more readily available than it once was.
While some curtains are still being used on larger windows and doors, most commonly sliding glass doors, curtains are losing much of their popularity as even roller shades as well as plantation shutters are being used in their place, creating what many argue, is more functional as well as A more visually appealing option.
