Window Covering Trends for 2014

Sometimes it’s just time to update an old look to meet modern standards. For some renos these changes may seem simple. For many people there is a clear hierarchy in their floor and countertop preferences. Most people know which colours they like in kitchen cabinets and most furniture is pretty classic and rarely in need of an update. But when it comes to curtains and window coverings, less people know exactly what they want. After all, what window covering looks are even trendy or stylish?

All Natural. Organic, reused, recycled, biodegradable, and natural are becoming buzzwords in todays society. Window coverings are no exception. Calgarians are upgrading to bamboo, sleek woven-wood panels, and exposed wood grain window coverings. They love the natural, neutral feel it brings into their home. These coverings complement most other decor choices and are easier on the environment than some other options.

Colour and Patterns. Bright, striped, or polka dotted, using your window coverings to bring a jolt of colour into your home is becoming a popular choice. Browns with accents in vivid oranges and golds remain some of the leading colours, but blue from the lightest aqua-green turquoise, to deep purple-indigo are on the rise as people begin to steer away from the reds that were the long time alternative to brown.

Luxurious Materials. On the opposite end of simple, rustic, natural window coverings, luxury fabrics still command a strong place in window covering design. Rich, smooth velvets and sleek silks as well as suede, damasks, even fur and leather are in demand for spaces that want an air of delightful sophistication.

Whatever trend or style you prefer, you can find a the perfect window covering for your Calgary home here at Normandeau. Come in today!
