Sometimes I wonder how far trendsetting can go these days. People today usually follow trends about clothing, technology, and the like, but what about in interior design? Every time I go into a home depot store, people seem to have a pattern in choosing their window treatments. Apparently there are also trends based on the kind of window treatments being used in one’s home. And as it seems, my mother is trying to keep up with the trend as well and she brings me along when she chooses window blinds, that’s why I end up in the home depot store often.
I have noticed that there are people who make their window treatments the focal point or the main thing in their room design. I overhear people talking about using bright colors and intricate designs to immediately capture the reaction of the person who enters into the room.
You have may noticed that in today’s society, many people apparently prefer organic over other types of processed food. And as it turns out, the trend of being organic has reached the world of window treatments. This may be the preferable type of window blinds for naturalists where the window treatments themselves are made of materials like woven bamboo, and other types of strong leaves being weaved into making a blind.
There are also people who aim to wow people going into their house. They do this by striking different colors in the room and giving a wild vibe. You may notice that their furniture consists of greens, blues, yellows, while the blinds may be in reds, pinks, and much more. Though they may not sometimes match, the colors give a vibrant atmosphere to the room and make it feel livelier.
Particularly for the richer class, they choose to follow the trend of using luxury fabric materials in their blinds. These fabrics may use suede, velvet, silk, and other fabrics of a luxurious taste. Although these may pose a challenge to clean and maintain, using luxury fabrics can bring a sense of elegance into the room and make it feel like an earlier era of setting within the room itself.
While others prefer to follow intricate patterns, there are those who prefer the modern look of things and go for the sleekness of simple lines. Though simple as it may seem, blinds with simple but sleek patterns invoke a modern setting and make it feel like we are living ahead of the time.
I have taken a notice of people who purchase brightly colored blinds to be able to have a lively setting in their room. Because of this, I have probably not noticed the shop goers who prefer to purchase colors of a cooler and calmer nature. Colors that seem more neutral and blend into the design of the room itself, it is these kinds of blinds that has to work together with the present interior design as well as the furniture to show the creativeness of the person who put together the setting.
