At the Original California Shutters, we know blinds and shutters: we offer a very wide selection of beautiful styles, materials, and colors for indoor and outdoor shutters.
Here are the top trends for window shutters and blinds in 2018, from the experts at California Shutters:
Bring Nature Back
Organic materials are back with a splash in 2018. Shades from woven natural fibers, quality wood and even bamboo shutters are now widely embraced by designers. Aside from being eco-friendly, these materials also add a natural but elegant tone in any room.
Embrace the Light
Another trend to watch out for this year are window treatments that let in lots natural light and eliminate the need for artificial lights. Sheer fabrics and large window shutters are great for this, for example, as they allow lots light in while ensuring privacy.
Lay on the Layers
Layering also works well with windows. For instance, combining shades behind sheer curtains can create depth while adding functionality. You can let light in whenever you want and have privacy when you need it. This is particularly helpful in private areas like bathrooms and bedrooms.
Have Fun with Patterns
Solid colors are less common today, replaced by dynamic and fun patterns. Bright and lively colors perfect for the contemporary home, creating a fun focal point for indoor and outdoor window shutters.
Window shutters and custom window treatments can complement your home's overall design and increase its value without the big investment needed for renovations. Trends like using eco-friendly materials, opting for sheer layers and using bold patterns will go a long way in giving your home a light, airy, and beautiful feel.
