Our choice of window treatment reflects our personal taste, from the style of clothing we buy to the color palettes we choose for our home. Our motto at ABC Blind & Drapery is to consider the possibilities, which means being prepared when our clients come across something they absolutely love. We’re continuously researching what’s new in the industry and what is expected to be big in the coming months. Here are four window treatment trends that we predict will be popular in 2017.
attention to detail
Details are what elevate something from just okay to amazing. Whether it’s the intricate stitching on a piece of clothing or an added touch of metallic on a handbag, details matter. This year, we urge our clients to spend extra time looking at hardware. The rod that your drapery hangs from may not be the focal point of the room, but you certainly want to avoid selecting a victorian style drapery rod when you have modern furniture. Not to mention, that purposefully choosing your hardware can also help incorporate a secondary color into the decor. Speaking of which, we hear silver, bronze and gold are still on trend…
A touch of gold here and there is all you need. While we don’t carry 24 karat gold window treatments at ABC Blind & Drapery, we do know how to work in metallics without making them seem over the top or cheap. The solution lies with Tableaux Decorative Grilles. The image below is just one example of how you can use Tableaux products. You have the option to create something entirely custom, which includes the size, shape, design, and finish (metallic!!) of the grille. We became a Tableaux reseller after seeing how sharp the decorative grilles look as a solution for windows, transoms, sidelights and arches.
Incorporating fun patterns the right way can be tricky, but it’s a popular window treatment trend for 2017. You have the option of buying an interesting area rug or adding wallpaper to an accent wall, or you can choose a pattern and leave the rest up to us. Whether you’re in need of draperies or shades, we will use the fabric you chose to create a custom made window treatment. With over 20 lines of fabric to choose from, ABC Blind & Drapery is the ultimate place to shop for fun patterns. Not to mention that if you can’t find the exact pattern you’re looking for… we’ll make it for you!
Drapery and shades are one way to go, but we can’t forget about shutters and blinds! Not only are both incredibly functional, but they give any room an especially welcoming and classic look. Our wood blinds are available in 100% genuine basswood, adding character and a natural element to the home. For those who prefer shutters, we offer premium hardwood shutters in a painted or stained finish. No worries if you’ re trying to match the stain of your kitchen table, we can make it happen! A living room with wooden window treatments and a houseplant is well on it’s way to being too cozy to leave.
Whether you’re intentionally following the trends or just going with what fits your personal style, ABC Blind & Drapery has what you’re looking for. Formal or funky, we’re ready for 2017.
