The Hottest Trend in Window Treatments for 2022

Did you guess layers?  People are loving the timeless look of drapery on top of a base layer of blinds or shades. Drapery Panels are making a comeback, and although this look isn’t new, how clients are using multiple colors and textures is.

The fresh vibe that is being exercised is the space’s style. Modern textures and vibrant colors are being used to give room’s a new beginning. Expanding visually the height of windows is becoming a must. When the curtain rod is placed a large distance above the window it appears bigger. This then makes the ceiling look higher as well.

It’s extremely important to have your personal style implemented into your home’s interior design. A window covering specialist can help enhance what you like and address any window covering issues.


The Favorite Feature

We are definitely not surprised by this one, top down bottom up. This is a fantastic solution to keep the heat out, have landscape views, and maintain privacy without sacrificing light control.

A huge plus for this feature is you can enjoy sunlight shining into the space without the harsh glare. Having the light directed towards the ceiling keeps the sunshine out of your eyes, but illuminating the space. It also keeps your interiors safe from fading. 


The “Must Have” Innovation

Smart shades are one of the greatest innovations, and once our clients get them, they never want to go back. The integration is user friendly to seamlessly work with all major smart home systems. All of the benefits are at your fingertips without having to learn a new system.

Most Frequently Asked Question

“Do all the window treatments need to be the same throughout my home?,” is the most frequently asked question.

The answer, no! Let us explain.

Window treatments have a purpose as well as look great. They are interior accessories that are chosen for specific reasons. You wouldn’t pick the exact same accents for each room would you? No, but you probably want a cohesive look throughout the home.

The colors, textures, and style of treatments can be similar without being exact. This still allows for individuality but helps create a similar aesthetic. Different rooms need different solutions so it’s even possible to have the same fabric across all coverings but different treatments.


High Expectations for Spaces

Multi-functioning spaces are what clients are expecting. Two options for each room is the minimum. The dining room once used only for family dinners is now also a remote learning classroom. The office might be a personal workout space before your day begins.
