The Top 5 Window Treatment Trends for 2021
The 2020 year has finally come to a close! To celebrate, we’re forecasting window treatment trends for the new 2021 year. While you’re sure to see some timeless classics, we have a few unique options up our sleeves to help you spice things up. Without further ado, here are our top five favorite window treatment trends for 2021:
1. The Layered Look
You don’t have to be an interior design expert to ace the technique of layered looks, especially when it comes to layering window treatments. This warm, inviting design concept can help you seamlessly blend different patterns, textures, and styles of window coverings—helping you create functional works of art. Start with a base, like rolling shades, and layer with hanging sheers and curtains.
2. Sheers & Blinds
If you like the layered look but don’t want to block natural light, sheers are your best bet. When layered with Roman and roller shades, horizontal blinds, or plantation shutters, sheer curtains create a cottage-like atmosphere that slightly filters light. This 2021 look is trending in interiors with traditional or transitional designs.
3. Natural-Toned Interior Shutters
Interior plantation shutters are a timeless addition for any home, blending in with most interior designs and offering lasting benefits. The valuable advantages of installing these permanent window treatments have kept them in trend. This year, white- and natural-toned shutters take centerstage.
4. Painted & Stained Wood Blinds
For years, roller and Roman shades have remained a stylish alternative to blinds. However, in 2021, we’re seeing horizontal blinds come back in a big way! Natural materials and textures—particularly stained and painted wood binds—are becoming a staple in many interior design concepts.
5. Greige Color Trends
Gray + Beige = Greige: This color concept is quickly becoming the 2021 IT trend. Greige blinds and shades offer the perfect amount of privacy when closed without making your living space feel closed off—something that can happen with the bold color choices seen in 2020. This is also a color trend that meshes well with cool and warm tones!
