Once you choose, purchase and install your new Lakewood, WA replacement windows, the fun really begins. You now get to decorate your new windows with window treatments. Window treatments come in almost every shape, size, color and patterns, so where do you start?
One easy place to start is with what’s trendy in the window treatment world. There are a lot of 2018 window treatment trends, but here are a few favorites to get you started:
- Go Higher – Don’t make the mistake of hanging your new window treatments too low. In fact, mounting them just shy of the ceiling will make the room appear larger. Hang either rod or track mounts above the window top for a modern, stylish and impactful look.
- High Tech – Smart phones, Bluetooth, Wifi and every other kind of new technology is saturating our world. Why not take advantage of this tech for your window treatments? It’s easy to automate your window treatments with Smart Home technology. Choose a program that allows you to integrate your window operation into your phone, a remote, or even your computer. You can program your shades to shut at a certain time or when the room reaches a certain temperature. You can even program them to open and close at the sound of your voice.
- Rollers Are Your New Best Friends – Roller shades are coming back with a vengeance. New models offer a more modern spin on the classic roller shade look for tons of fashion and function. You can find roller shades to improve your home’s energy efficiency with curved cellular construction that also adds fun texture. Choose banded shades for a roller function without the heaviness that also offers easier outdoor viewing with view-through sheer sections alternating with opaque pieces.
- Choose Color – While it may seem that clean white, crisp grey and other neutrals are here to stay, colorful window treatments are coming back into style for 2018. If you’re scared of a bright color or a solid hue, try bringing some color to your window treatments in more creative ways like a trim or swag. You can also go for sheer fabrics so the color is less pronounced. Blush pink is a subtle yet stylish color, and blue is always a relaxing hue for a home space.
Make your replacement windows shine with any of these window treatment trends for 2018. Hoping to get even more creative? Use these trends as jumping off points to inspire your personal style.
