Window Treatments That Are Currently Trending

You might think of window treatments as the framing of a window, almost like a piece of art. In fact, interior designers will tell you that curtains are one of the most important elements of a room. The curtains you use can either make or break your look.

There are tons of window treatments out there to choose from. A good rule of thumb is to look at the current trends. Here are several current trends to follow.

Roman Shades

Roman shades are an updated version of blinds. According to Sarah Marks, an interior designer, Roman shades will stand the test of time. You can add different details to shades to give them a unique look. Marks explains, “For example, I love adding a bold, colorful micro welt to a Roman shade. This small detail can create depth and interest while keeping a simple and chic feel.”  You can add multicolor tassels to shades to give them a bit of color.

“When you’re working with a pattern that’s busier, fold the fabric and imagine it as a stacked curtain panel. What you get is a lot of movement and color without being overwhelmed by the pattern. If you were to use the same pattern for a Roman shade, you’d see the full pattern in a bold and dramatic way you may not want for the space” remarks Joshua.

Sheer Curtains

Sheer curtains can have an effect on a room. They let in soft light so it is a perfect way to delicately brighten up a space. If you have a small space or a space that you do not want to overwhelm with a window dressing, this is the perfect item.

“Sheers are so amazing because they give us the ability to add verticality and drapery without feeling heavy or weighing down a room. They bring a softness to very hard lines of architecture and allow light to still filter in while providing privacy. We want all the light to come in during summer,” says Joshua.


They say that drapery is timeless. So if you want to have something that will last, choose curtains. “Personally, I love a fuller curtain so I add a little extra on to the drop. A little pooling of fabric will create a more luxurious feel. They are elegant, soft, luxurious, and visually make a dramatic impact,” says Tori Murphy, a textile designer.

“Layered drapery is a great solution for the summer and year-round. Using sheer panels combined with thicker panels is a wonderful way to achieve flexibility with both privacy and light. There is something so ephemeral about subtly filtered light shining through sheer curtains on a bright summer day,” says Davina Ogilvie of Wovn Home.

There are fun new trends always emerging and interior designers will always keep up to date when it comes to the current trend. Window treatments can be expensive but are worth it in the long run.
