With 2018 swiftly underway, we are noticing upcoming trends to go with the new year. Fashion is constantly on the move, and influences everything from clothes, decor, and yes, window treatments. Thinking of giving your Everett, Mill Creek or Snohomish home an upgrade? Want to switch out the old for something new? Here are the top 2018 window treatment trends in the Pacific Northwest.
While neutrals still have their place, bold colors are making a comeback. Gold, blue, purple...we're seeing pops of color popping up more and more frequently. Whether it's one accent shade or every shade in the room, these colors are brightening up homes and paving the way for warmer months.
Not only are colors becoming bolder, but graphics and patterns are standing out from the crowd. Many Pacific Northwesterners are choosing bold patterns to spice up their space. No longer limited to soft colors, these graphics and patterns are limitless in their creations and offer something different for every style. Roller shades, in particular, come in a wide variety of options to draw attention to your window treatments in your favorite rooms.
As our culture becomes more and more aware of the world and needs around us, Washington has always taken a lead in caring for our world. Environmentally friendly window treatments are just one way to support our beautiful ecosystem. Our wood blinds, shades and other products are produced using North American hardwoods that are carefully harvested through sustainable yield forest management. This means that the amount of wood harvested is below the levels of tree growth. Our woven wood shades are made from natural materials like jute and bamboo, and our woven natural shades from our Inspired Shades™ Collection made from hemp, kenaf and flax, are 100% organic and environmentally friendly and completely recyclable.
On top of supporting our planet, global patterns and colors are a huge hit. This means the neutral, rugged, more authentic looking patterns and fabrics to create a cultured feel to the home. This increasingly popular style helps build a feeling of connection and respect between cultures.
Layers are still in, and are still rising in popularity. Why give up style for functionality when you can have it all? Our favorite layering mix are Woven Wood Shades underneath beautiful Drapes. You can add a blackout liner to the shades to create one more benefit to your window treatment! Or, you can layer a Solar Shade underneath a blackout Roman Shade for a different style with multiple functions.
Trends change constantly. The most important thing to remember is choose something you truly love. Regardless of the current trend, all that matters is how you feel in your own home. With so many options, we are confident we have something for everyone.
