Nothing makes a room stand out more than a well-suited, attractive window treatment. Admit it, once you enter a room, the first thing you notice is the windows. You notice how clean they are, how easy it is to look through them, and especially the treatment.
Here are some window treatments that are trending and what you can look for in 2020.
Barn door shutters
Woven wood shades
Barn Door Shutters
The first item on the list, barn door shutters, add that rustic and artistic appeal to your window you’ve been looking for. The look is sophisticated yet simple. It can add value to your home and serve as an attractive piece in case you’re looking to sell your home.
Floor-to-ceiling curtains make the space inside the house feel larger by making the room seem longer. The curtains are modern and sleek with different colors matching the interior design. They are easy to clean as well with a wet fabric or a steam curtain cleaner. These are the best curtains if you have sliding glass doors.
Sheer styles are definitely trending in 2019 and something you will see on the market in 2020. Though it may seem a bit unique, imagine what that friend of yours who is expecting will say if they receive a window treatment for the nursery they are building. It might be the best (or certainly the most practical) present they receive before their bundle of joy arrives.
Pastels are the perfect window treatments to accent with furniture and other interior decors. You can choose from a myriad of colors, each appealing to your sense of color balance inside the selected room. For a bright and cheerful feel, choose light yellow. For a darker room, such as an office or workspace, choose blue. Think about the feeling you want to emote once a person enters the room.
Woven Wood Shades
Woven wood shades are a trending item for kitchens and dining rooms. The look is a great natural addition to your room with a sleek, versatile approach. Different styles range from farmhouse to Norweigan. These rustic and beautiful windows treatments will have visitors in awe at the genuine appearance.
When it comes to window treatments, you are playing a careful balance between appearance and color balance. You want to make sure you don’t make a mistake after spending money on window treatments as they can be expensive.
The best move is to have an interior window technician visit your house and take an inventory of colors and accents. They will work with you on what looks best and give you a virtual look using technology. You will be able to see your room with your new window treatments without spending the money.
Interior appearance is where the selling factor is if you are looking to put your house on the market. A good window treatment may make the difference in your room’s look. They will brighten or lighten up the mood, or show a more serious, focused approach.
Either way, a window treatment gives a room definition and meaning. It tells the buyer that the seller is serious about the care of their house and gives the interior a more organized and clean look.
This is often a great selling point when putting your house on the market. The exterior of the house makes a difference, but the interior is where people will spend most of their time. Therefore, you want the windows to look as clear and beautiful as they can.
Not Looking to Sell?
That’s fine! Remodeling is never a bad thing. Are you tired of the old appearance of your past window treatments? Do yourself a favor and visit a window treatment specialist. They will take a look at your situation and decide which is best for you.
Upon your agreement, they can even install the window treatment. The choice is yours. You decide what your home looks like and what you are most comfortable with.
In the long run, the reward will be a comfortable, liveable space that will make you and your loved ones happy.
