Texture Trends 

The current offerings in stylish window treatments really have something for everyone.  Adding a textural dimension to your window covering has a time-honored appeal.  You can use a textured window treatment in a utilitarian fashion, or step it up and let the window treatment be the focal point in a room.

Woven wood shades have become a classic window treatment solution. The combination of natural woods, bamboo and reeds create a timeless treatment suitable for any style home. From contemporary to traditional styles, woven woods natural beauty compliments almost any setting.  The delicate, yet durable Grass weave shades are another wonderful treatment possibility to ensure the right choice.

Wood blinds, in either a stained or painted finish, offer yet another texture to a room.  The smooth, more regimented lines feel right at home in both sleek contemporary or more laid back cottage decor.

The Hunter Douglas Silhouette is offering us more choices in texture with the Chateau fabric fast becoming a favorite for clients.

Drapery panels are another beautiful choice to add some texture into a room.  Not to mention style and sound absorption as added benefits of fabric on your windows.

Make certain window treatments inject the appropriate texture to balance a room. Too often, texture is overlooked as a consideration, even though it can entirely alter the ambiance of a room.

For a hard, predominantly wood-filled space with few upholstered pieces, select soft, voluptuous curtain fabrics. In a carpeted room with plain drywall or plaster at the walls, consider wooden blinds or shades to inject the warmth of natural wood tones; or create a mixture of textures in a single window treatment to provide textural richness and depth.
