Everything you need to know from Ottawa’s Window Treatment Experts

The short story is that it’s all about natural, neutral and bringing the outdoors inside. Read on to learn more about the hottest trends in window coverings for 2022 and how you can work them into your home’s décor. Because your window treatments are an investment, you want to choose modern pieces that will remain up to date for the next few years.

Window Treatment Trend #1

Colour Palettes – 2022 is all about simplicity, functionality and naturalness. These leanings apply to window covering colour palettes. Consider natural hues including greens, browns and blues to bring the beauty of nature into your space. Neutral tones like beige or milk create a soft effect that creates an impression of warmth and gentleness. To make a statement, consider a bold shade of these colours with chocolate, navy or peach.

Window Treatment Trend #2

Textures – Carrying on with 2022’s nature trend, textures are bringing the outdoors inside. Complimenting earthy colour palettes are natural wood finishes that create a natural, calming ambience.

Window Treatment Trend #3

Multi-Functioning Spaces – Propelled by the work from home trend, many homeowners seek multi-use spaces while maintaining a warm, minimalistic style. Combining form with function, multi-purpose shades like Duolite Roller Shades combine the aesthetics of a light-filtering sheer with a room-darkening liner, providing diffused light when you want it and privacy when you don’t.

Window Treatment Trend #4

Home Automation – As people are increasingly embracing home automation options, this trend is quickly spreading to motorized window treatments. The motorization of window coverings also fulfills the needs of those prioritizing energy efficiency and home security. Motorized shades can easily be programmed to reduce the heat entering the home during the day and offer an extra layer of security when you’re not home. These smart home solutions pair seamlessly with your other devices and can be operated by app, smart hubs or even voice.

How to Use 2022’s Window Treatment Trends in Your Home

Now that you know the latest trends in window treatments for 2022, you need to choose the right window coverings for your living space. Due to their minimalistic style, roller shades are perfectly on-trend for 2022. Available in a wide range of earth tones, with textures and hardware options to compliment, roller shades are an ideal choice for this year’s trends and naturistic colour palettes.

Creating a cozy texture and architectural feel, natural woven woods and reeds providing organic texture to Roman Shades are the perfect complement to earthy, natural tones.

Another way to update your home’s look with this year’s trends is with sheer shadings. Providing soft, diffused natural light, this is one more way to invite the outdoors into your home. Hunter Douglas’ Silhouette and Pirouette window shadings can fill your room with soft light while maintaining a sense of privacy.
