We know what you’re thinking — how will window coverings change in the next decade? Will they still be relevant? Will people still need them? …These are great questions, especially considering technological advancements within the industry are adding more and more features to our blinds. But don’t worry, there is still a big role for window treatments.
We’ve picked up on some window blind trends that have become increasingly popular. From aesthetics to privacy to technological advancements, we’ve considered many factors like these to help you level up your home’s interior and visual appearance.
1. Energy-Efficient and Eco-Friendly home.
The trend for eco-friendly and energy-efficient blinds has been around for a while. However, this year we’re also seeing a rise in the demand for sustainable and environmentally friendly products.
Energy-efficient solar blinds will help you save lots of money on your utility bills, but they’ll also keep your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
While solar blinds are great for any climate, those living in regions with hot summers and cold winters will especially benefit from their energy efficiency.
For instance, Krumpers Solar Blinds are the perfect solution for homes or offices that need to maintain a connection with the outdoors, but also need protection from the sun.
These versatile window coverings can be used on both windows and doors, and offer many benefits : 98% UV protection, temperature control, clear view, energy saving.
Beside that, Krumpers Solar Blinds custom fit for any challenging window shapes like odd, bay, trapezoid windows.
2. Smart-Home technology.
Modern technology has created smart, connected blinds that can be easily programmed to open and close. You can sync your blinds to your smartphone, then control them individually or in groups.
And you can set up a schedule for your blinds so they open and close at any time. This means you can start your day with a fresh view of the outdoors – at exactly the moment you want.
By integrating the smart blinds with your smart home hub, you will be able to reduce power consumption and save money on your electricity bill.
When the blinds are integrated with your smart home hub, they can track data points like time of day, weather, temperature, in-home lighting – and make adjustments accordingly.
3.Cordless Blinds Set The Tone For A Safe Home.
Cordless blinds have become increasingly popular of late, all thanks to their style, function—and most importantly, the option of staying safe.
These blinds are very easy to operate, since all you need to do is lift or lower them.
They are an attractive alternative to traditional window coverings because you won’t have to hide ugly cords, resulting in windows looking uncluttered and streamlined. As cordless blinds are available in a wide range of styles and colors, you can select the one that works best with your home furnishings and décor.
4. Natural Window Covering Trends.
We’re seeing a lot of natural elements in window coverings, which is another way to bring the outside in. Rattan, bamboo, wood and other natural materials are the perfect addition to a sustainably styled home.
Natural window coverings have a clean look and are often paired with hot hardware finishes like brass or copper. For example, you might find rattan blinds layered over linen draperies with brass finials and rings.
Many home owners are investing in more comfortable environment for their families. Blinds that are energy efficient are all the rage right now. It makes sense: you want to make sure your home is as energy efficient, eco-friendly and healthy as possible, and that means using products that won’t contribute to pollution or waste. So it’s something to keep in mind when you’re shopping.
