If you’re like the many other people who are happily waving goodbye to 2020, the previous year saw you spending a lot more time at home. And suddenly you noticed that your interior décor is long overdue for an update. Fortunately, it’s easy to breathe new life into the aesthetic of any room by revamping your window treatments. To help you get started, here are a few of the hottest window treatment trends for 2021:
Declutter the Look of Your Windows
Decluttering living spaces is all the rage, with proponents promising that the “less is more” philosophy will lead to less stress and more self-esteem. Why not try it with your window treatments? Strive for simple, clean lines as you pair lightweight, modern curtains with roller shades, choosing colors that play well together and perhaps play off an intriguing color in your living room sofa or the comforter in your bedroom. Or try this: Cover your windows with a 21st-century take on Roman shades. Choose shades with gorgeous fabric folds that preserve the traditional cascading Roman style but stack neatly when you pull them up to let the sun shine in.
Improve the Energy Efficiency of Your Home
Concerns over rising energy costs and the depletion of natural resources have many homeowners vowing to cut their energy consumption in 2021. If improving your home’s energy efficiency is among your New Year’s resolutions, make sure you consider adorning your windows with honeycomb shades. Also known as cellular shades, these lovely window treatments can reduce solar heat gain through your windows by up to 80%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. In the wintertime, honeycomb shades can cut heat loss by about 40%. Therefore, adding this type of treatment to your windows is a cost-effective way to reduce your demand on your HVAC system while also updating your home décor.
Automate Your Window Treatments in 2021
Motorized blinds and shades are no longer considered luxuries, any more than your TV remote is considered something you can do without. Options include simple motorized window treatments that can be raised and lowered with push-button control, as well as high-tech systems that you can control with your smartphone.
