Here are the Latest Trends in the World of Blinds for Your Denver Home


August 21, 2019

In terms of the latest trends, you’re probably more concerned with keeping up on the most recent music, television, fashion, or other relevant pop culture trends than you are blinds. But it is important not to overlook how blinds can evolve with each passing year. Blinds aren’t a static object that doesn’t change as time goes on, as there are always reasons to consider the latest technological improvements being made to blinds, shutters, and other types of window treatments. Don’t think blinds haven’t made any changes in the last few years, as it is clear there have been important movements to take note of. With that in mind, here are some recent trends in the world of blinds to be aware of when updating your Denver home.

Roller Shades

In terms of fabric window treatments, roller shades have seen an uptick in popularity in recent years, as this type of shade offers the perfect balance of both style and functionality when it comes to the world of window treatments. Roller shades are a type of window treatment composed of fabric and can be automated using technological improvements. Instead of worrying about your children getting caught in your blinds, potentially getting strangled in the process, roller shades offer safety enhancements beyond your wildest dreams. 

Wood Blinds

One of the more interesting trends in recent years has been the move to incorporate blinds which are made from real wood. This design element can make a standard window treatment turn into a very classic, rustic feel. This type of window treatment/blind choice can add an extra level of grace and elegance to your room, adding much more character to your Denver home than the standard vinyl or plastic blind options. 

These are perfect for a room which has hardwood flooring and has a classic or rustic feel, as blinds can enhance the look and feel of such style choices. If going for a real wood blind option doesn’t feel right or seems like it might be too much of an investment, you can still achieve the same type of result by using faux wood blinds. These are blinds made from plastic and PVC, but still have the appearance of natural wood, transforming your home without needing to purchase an expensive window treatment option.
