2014 is a fresh start! It’s the chance to reflect on the past year and embark on a new path. It’s the opportunity not only to evaluate our personal lives, but to evaluate our home, too. Perhaps you’ve evaluated your home and are ready for some new window treatments. Here’s three trends to be mindful of as you are selecting new window treatments for 2014 and beyond:
1. Large Windows:
The trend of larger windows in today’s new homes is becoming more popular because homeowners are looking to illuminate their homes with natural light. Thanks to improved insulation, consumers can enjoy this eco-friendly option as well as energy efficiency. When it comes to versatile window treatments for larger windows, consider our new Vignette® Traversed™ with Vertiglide™ Modern Roman Shades. This elegant treatment offers a vertical solution for expansive windows and doors while providing a perfect balance of sunlight and energy efficiency.
2. Less is More:
Simple designs let essential beauty shine through. That’s certainly true for Hunter Douglas Silhouette® window shadings, which feature soft fabric vanes suspended between two sheers, diffusing softened light deep into a room. Taking simplicity to a new level, these shadings are now available with the innovative LiteRise® of a hand. And with no cords, they also offer enhanced child and pet safety.
3. Color of the Year:
The color of the year for 2014 features a bold choice you’ll love: Dazzling Blue. This color looks modern when mixed with white details, warm pewter, and mercury glass accessories. Try adding this color into your home with many of our Hunter Douglas window fashions that offer beautiful blues such as our Celebrity®aluminum blinds in Blue Ridge. lifting system, making them convenient to raise, lower and open with just the touch
