Window dressings are an important aspect of interior design, so it’s important to know how your blinds can fit in with the rest of your home’s décor. So before purchasing a new blind for your home, read on and find what the current trends are in the blinds world.
Clean Minimalist Roller Blinds
One bog trend in the blinds world recently has been a push towards minimalist blinds, this is because minimalism as a décor theme has grown incredibly popular and such demand for minimalist blinds is growing at an equal amount.
Roller blinds have become the go to blinds for minimalists, with one simple roll of fabric roller blinds quite aptly fit into the theme. Colours that have been popular with fans of minimalism tend to be: off-whites, beiges, creams and other neutral colours, as they fit in the grander scheme of minimalist design.
Stripe Inspired Day & Night Blinds
Stripes are another style trend which has recently seen a resurgence in popularity, due to their ability to change our perception of a room’s size, which made stripes a useful décor theme to rely on during lockdown as they were confined to their home, as such using stripes made their rooms feel bigger and more open. This love for stripes has correlated to the popularity of day & night blinds, as they’re made from horizontal strips of alternating fabric, they have a stripey appearance and will leave stripey shadows. When leaning on stripes as a décor theme, day & night blinds are a must have.
Rustic Inspired Wooden Blinds
Thanks to the recent explosion in popularity of the Cottagecore and Farmcore aesthetics, people have been taking inspiration from those aesthetics and using them in their décor, while Cottagecore and Farmcore have their own quirks, the real inspiration comes from rustic design.
When it comes to rustic décor, you can not beat the look of real wood venetian blinds, wooden venetian blinds conjure up the feeling of sitting in an old farmhouse, peering out onto your land. They’re a farmhouse staple, so if you’re going for a rustic look in your home, you should look into real wood venetian blinds.
Bold Patterns On Roman Blinds
The final big window dressing trend we’ve noticed so far in 2022 has been the use of bold patterns, which help turn window blinds from a functional pieces to somewhat of a focal point and conversation piece. Usually used either to create contrast or to fit into a maximalist design scheme.
When it comes to patterned blinds, Roman blinds are the best of the bunch to draw attention. Owing to the simplistic design of Roman blinds and the fact they can be made from a wide range of fabrics, you can find many different colour combinations and patterns available for Roman blinds.
