Whether you are looking to decorate a new house or replace your existing drapery, you may have questions about the best kinds of window treatments to use. Here are a few of the more popular trends in window decorating:
Blue is becoming more popular for window treatments. People use many different variations, including ones such as teal, aquamarine and a soft green, even shading into soft lavenders and gray. Brown also remains popular as a foundation color to pair it with.
Materials such as bamboo are becoming more popular to be used in window treatments like natural woven shades. They let in a scattered light, allowing a view to the outside while yet retaining some privacy. These types of shades work well in many different style rooms in your home.
Luxury fabrics also remain fashionable for window drapery. These include materials such as silk, velvet, and damask. People also add various accoutrements to the drapery and the hardware to enhance the opulence even more, with embellishments such as crystal and beaded tassels.
Details that fashion designers use on dresses are now being applied to drapery, such as ruffles, cording, beading and lace.
Grosgrain has also gained in popularity. This is a densely woven, ribbed material made from silk or rayon. Designers use it as a decorative addition to shades and drapery.
People want drapery and hardware that is simple and sleek, with precise and elegant lines.
Panel-track systems are also being used more. As opposed to vertical blinds, panel-tracks are made from fabric or woven wood panels. They can function as dividers for rooms, or used on windows and doors.
Prints that really stand out on drapery are also popular. These include floral designs and geometric patterns. Homeowners are looking for designs and patterns on their drapery to add sparkle to their rooms.
They may be a little more expensive, but people love the elegance and polish they bring to a room.
When you want a room – or an entire building – to have that final touch, look to your drapery to complete the space. And to help you find that perfect drapery and custom window treatment, look to GP Drapery and we would love to help you transform the ambiance.
