Window Covering Style: In or Out?

Home decor and interior design style trends are always changing. We have window covering styles that fit with nearly every type of style out there. While changing trends can change, what really matters is your taste and personality when it comes to picking out the perfect window treatments for your home.


Styles to Trade Out

It’s important to make your house feel like a home. Doing so takes personal touches that speak to you and functionality that meets your and your family’s needs. There are some dated treatments that we see many of our clients ready to get rid of for a new style that works wonders for their windows.



Oftentimes, people will leave the window treatments when selling a home. This means when you move into a home, you may inherit some window treatments that are less than perfect. If they’re not meeting your light control, energy efficiency, privacy or style, it’s definitely time to switch them out!

Over time, it’s not uncommon for blinds in high traffic areas to become damaged or broken. Being jumped on by pets, pulled on by children, or bumped into while coming in the door with tons of grocery bags can all cause damage after years of use.

We understand not wanting to block the view, but windows with no treatments can bring a host of issues. Terrible glare, higher interior temps, and lack of privacy are just some of the problems that the right treatments can solve. And, with many of them, you can still enjoy the beautiful view and natural light.

We know that once people find something they love, they like to stick with it. But anymore, window treatments aren’t necessarily something you should have all the same throughout your home. With windows facing different directions and having different needs, it’s important to consider a few different treatments that can work best in each space. The idea is to focus on coordination, not all matching.


Elements to Bring In

There are several new features & trends in window covering style that we are eager to share with everyone.



Painting window trim black is all the rage right now. We are here for the trend–and can help you enhance it! The right window covering style will provide you the functionality you desire, while also allowing you to admire that beautiful, contrasting trim.

While picking a matching window covering style for every single window in the house is out, selecting coordinating treatments that feel cohesive is definitely in. Treatments that have similar colors, textures, and overall style create a cozy feeling that will help elevate any room.
