16 Feb Organic Materials Rule Window Treatments in 2016
Just like any trend, home decorating trends evolve. And for 2016 experts are saying that window treatments, like much of home design, are leaning more toward using more natural and organic materials.
Popular amongst environmentally conscious homeowners, organic window treatments increase energy efficiency and are constructed from recycled and sustainable materials. Synthetics used on shutters and blinds are now being replaced with natural, organic materials such as bamboo and wood.
Aside from being environmentally conscious, organic treatments are also cost-effective and good for our overall health. Made without abrasive chemicals or dyes and less likely to trigger allergies, there’s no surprise why these are a hit. Top it off with their stylish and durable qualities that allow just enough light in while providing considerable privacy, and you really can have it all!
Whether your goal is to provide a warm and secure atmosphere for family gatherings, conserving energy, or simply controlling afternoon glare at work, organic shades are up for the job. Pair them with organic cotton curtains for a beautifully unique, sustainable, and healthy window! Or use them as a covering all its own to highlight other features in your home. For example, bamboo shades provide ample privacy for a living room while letting large windows act as an architectural backdrop. The simplicity of organic shades softens windows in rooms that are already accented by a large rug or other decorative elements. Not every room should be covered in strong, bold fabrics- and organic shades are the perfect alternative.
We can expect this trend in natural organic window treatments to extend well beyond 2016 as environmental sustainability grows as a priority in all homes. So give Royal Window Fashions a call at (210) 528-1340 to schedule an in-home or office visit and jump on the organic bandwagon!
