What’s In, What’s Out? Window Covering Style Edition

Are you curious about what’s happening in the world of design? We like to stay on the cutting edge of what’s popular–and what’s NOT cool. Today, we’re filling you in on the latest in window covering style. Do you need an update?

Say Goodbye…

Your home should be your happy place, your sanctuary, your ideal getaway. That means saying goodbye to design elements that don’t spark joy. When it comes to window covering style, that looks like…

“New to You” Window Treatments

If your window treatments came with the house, you need to stop and evaluate. Does the style match YOUR home? How is the condition? Are they solving the common issues you are having in your home–heat, light, privacy? Similar to the artwork on the walls, your surrounded by window “art.” Make sure they speak to your happiness.

Damaged Blinds

Daily wear & tear can take a toll on window coverings. Pets, children and heavy usage all contribute to this. If your blinds are broken or inoperable, not only is it going to take a toll on your quality of life, but they can be dangerous. You probably wouldn’t keep a chair with a cracked leg. Don’t wait to replace broken and damaged window treatments.

The “Matchy Matchy” Look

Gone are the days where you have to have all the same colors and patterns throughout your home. This is not to say that you can’t have the same window covering style. After all, we love what we love, right? But, in today’s world, you don’t have to feel pressure to choose the same thing for every window. When we work on bringing window treatments into a home, we focus on helping you discover the solutions you need, and then we guide you to products that will coordinate with each other. The design elements will speak to the foundational style you love, but the choices you make will create the ideal atmosphere for each space.

Uncovered Windows

The “bare window” trend is so deceiving. We see all these stunning views in gorgeous homes online, and we think, “I want that.” But, the reality? To live our best lives, we need privacy, light control, UV protection and temperature regulation. Right? Don’t let someone else’s staged photo make you feel bad about your life. Besides, so many of our window coverings roll up out of the way and disappear. You can really have it all–if and when you want it!


Say Hello…

Why not take a look at what’s on the rise in window covering style? We are focusing on the beauty, fit and function of your home with new innovations and updates you’ll love.

Fall for Black Trim

That black window trim trend is not going anywhere. While light colors blend, black stands out to elevate design. So, what does this have to do with window treatments? Some homeowners feel hesitant about covering up this gorgeous styling. But, like we mentioned above, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. We have plenty of coverings that will coordinate with your windows–even allow the black trim to show through. Let’s chat about how we can make this look beautiful, while focusing on the function of your home at the same time.

Make It Twice As Nice

Dual shades have been around, but for awhile it involved limited offerings and creative techniques to make this happen at the window. Today, this feature is customizing the function of your home across the day. There are a wide variety of window coverings that offer dual features, including sheer shades, honeycombs and even woven woods!

Get Smart

Another favorite, remote control blinds started years ago. But, have you seen what smart home integration can do for your home & life? From scheduled settings that close your shades in the heat of day, to voice control that allows your window coverings to jump into position when asked, the innovations continue to expand. The best part is that you don’t need to adopt another smart home system. PowerView works with the smart home tech you already have. It’s just never been this easy.

Focus on Coordination

Did you know there was a difference between “matchy matchy” and coordination? We mentioned above that design has moved away from that “everything should be the same” mindset. This is your opportunity to bring in elements you love–without the pressure to make everything match. We look to colors, textures and patterns to coordinate the look of your home, making changes to fit the mood, atmosphere & design of the space.
