There are all kinds of window covers out there, and most of them will do exactly what you want. Cover your windows. But if you’re looking for something with a bit of zing, if you want to know what’s currently fashionable and popular in the interior design world, then read on, because this will interest you.
Blinds, in general, are making a comeback, with bright colours and prints being especially popular among interior designers. This is because they can be matched with the rest of the room’s décor, as well as act as an interesting feature of the room. Their variety is broader now, too, so designers have more options and variety.
It’s also trendy to match your blinds by room and purpose. Roller blinds are recommended for kids and nursery rooms. They’re easy to use, don’t blackout the room entirely, but keep enough light out for sleeping to be no problem. Colours and prints are very popular here, as they add the fun factor to the room.
Roman blinds, on the other hand, are seen as very luxurious, and add elegance and sophistication to a room. Elegant floral prints in colour combinations of a dark colour with a light one, are mainly used, and people are setting them up in the more lively rooms, wanting to show them off to guests. Living rooms and dining rooms fall under this category. Venetian and in particular wood venetian blinds are becoming very much associated with luxury, too, and are found in the same rooms. The wood venetian blinds are also popular within offices due to sense of heritage they provide. The main reason for their popularity, however, is that they combine modern design with more traditional, rustic associations. Such design combinations are becoming increasingly fashionable within the design world.
