23 Feb Window Covering Trends for 2018
Kuhn Flooring Company of Palm Beach and Broward Counties has you – and your windows – covered!
There’s an old saying – the eyes are the window of the soul. Some people say the line originally comes from Shakespeare, but wherever it started, it has come to mean that you can learn a lot about people and what they really think or feel by looking into their eyes.
Here at Kuhn Flooring of Pompano Beach and Boca Raton, we say, if you want to know about someone’s design style, however, look not at their eyes but at their window treatments!
Curtains, blinds, shades and shutters are a great way to give a room personality – or to give a room an easy update.
According to Improvenet.com, these are some of the 2018 Window Treatment Trends you may want to think about incorporating in your next project:
- Colorful & Geometric Curtains
- Natural Window Treatments
Bold colors are popular in many different aspects of home décor this year – from front doors to kitchen floors. If you have a room that is dominated by neutrals, colorful window coverings can infuse it with personality and pizzazz! An interesting pattern can do the same thing. If you’d like advice on how to incorporate pattern and color in your décor, the color design specialists at Kuhn Flooring of Boca Raton, Coral Springs and the whole South Florida region.
If you visit our gallery of flooring – in either Coral Springs or Lighthouse Point – you will also find a tempting array of window coverings. (When we say we’re a full-service flooring company, we really do mean full service!)
This year, many of the new designs feature a variety of textures. You can also incorporate this stylish trend in your décor scheme with light touches and otherwise minor design elements. “Velvet and tassel embellishments are small details not to be overlooked if you want to have trendy curtain décor,” Jaclyn Crawford.writes on Improvenet.com.
From paint to residential and commercial flooring solutions, eco-friendly products are increasingly popular. It’s an ongoing design trend that is showing no signs of slowing down. When it comes to window coverings, you’ll find a number of “green” options. Crawford suggests, “Blinds and shades of bamboo and woven cotton will remain popular among homeowners looking to dress up their windows.”
By the way, your eyes really are the window to your soul, according to Psychology Today. “In fact, the eyes do provide lots of information about another person’s emotional state,” they say. “When people are sad or worried, they furrow their brow, which makes the eyes look smaller. Yet when people are cheerful, we correctly call them ‘bright eyed.’ That’s because people raise their eyebrows when they’re happy, making the eyes look bigger and brighter.”
They continue: “We can tell a true (or Duchenne) smile from a fake by looking at a person’s eyes. The mouth shape of a smile is easy to fake—we do it all the time out of politeness. But the eyes are the giveaway: When we’re truly happy, we not only smile but also crinkle the corners of our eyes in a “crow’s feet” pattern. But when people fake a smile, they usually forget about their eyes.”
