Top Design Features of the Past Year

Last year the world seemingly turned upside down. Our daily lives we changed an in instance with stay at home orders and social distancing mandates. And as we started to spend more time at home than previously planned, new top design features appeared. So let’s take a stroll down memory lane and look at some of our top design features of last year.

 Backyard Escape

Besides a quick trip to pick up essential items or a family walk around the neighborhood, spending time at home became unavoidable. Time spent inside lead to more and more conversations with our loved ones. And as we got reacquainted with our families, our backyard space provided a place to be away from all the chaos of the world. So, it’s no wonder that one of our top design features focuses on backyards.

Spending day in and day out in the same space is mentally draining. This is why we’re so happy that top design features turned backyards into some much needed extra space. Simply adding a dining area or firepit and you have a great place to work remotely or have family dinners.

With that new and improved outdoor area, you’ll probably end up getting a new flow of foot traffic to your backdoor. There’s nothing worse than trying to bring out all the things needed for a barbeque or outdoor putting just for your doors to be working against you. Make sure your sliding door window treatments are working for you, not against you. Click here to view our high traffic area window covering options!

Adapting Your Rooms

With everything that happened last year, we’ve had to learn to adapt to a new normal. That meant being flexible and modifying to our situations. So, it’s no surprise that top design features became about adjusting homes to fit the new needs we had.

From bedrooms becoming virtual classrooms to dining rooms transformed into home offices, as our needs changed so did our spaces.

And as our spaces changed, so did our window treatment needs. With all the home improvements that happened in the past year, it might have been easy to overlook your window’s needs.
