Interior Design Trends for 2020: The Most Popular Blinds
A new decade is the perfect time to refresh your home, and one of the main aspects you should consider updating is your blinds. We have gathered information on the most prominent interior design trends of 2020 so you can choose blinds that match and are sure to impress both family members and guests.
Eco-friendly materials are especially popular at the moment, as people become more interested in looking after the planet. When it comes to interior design this trend has led to designs that are inspired by nature. This means using colours like brown, cream, coral, and green to create a modern yet tranquil feeling in the home.
Window coverings such as wooden shutters, woven wooden or bamboo shades, and products that improve energy efficiency are ideal for this trend. Also, choose a set of blinds that lets light flood into the room, as this accentuates the feeling of a connection with nature.
Maximalism has become a prevalent trend recently, utilising bold styles, and vivid colours to create a statement. Patterns and textures are mixed in a way that would have been frowned upon a couple of years ago. Dark colours are also in fashion at the moment, so you can experiment with moody tones such as deep blue and rich green on the walls and contrast them with white blinds, or even black plantation shutters and pale walls.
If you choose the maximalism trend for your home then a world of opportunity will open up when you are picking blinds. You are no longer limited by needing to pick something that perfectly matches the style of the room. Try bright purple roller blinds in a bedroom with a leopard print duvet cover, or orange roman blinds in a dark blue room.
A variety of different retro styles are growing in popularity, including the 1970s look, and using traditional, ‘heirloom craftsmanship’ to create old-fashioned appeal. For the 1970s feeling choose a colour palette of pink, moss green, gold, and orange for your home, and include curved furniture and terrazzo stone floors. Then to match this style pick blinds that have warm colours, geometric patterns or eye-catching designs.
If you instead go for the traditional, vintage style, then this involves buying quality, long-lasting furniture in wood and metal. The window coverings that match these are classic wooden plantation shutters, or perhaps aluminium venetian blinds.
Lately, everyone is interested in using technology to improve any part of their home that they can. ‘Smart homes’ are becoming increasingly popular, which means linking all sorts of items in your house up to Amazon Alexa or other smart devices.
Motorised or automated blinds suit this trend as they are modern, easy to use, and can be linked up to devices. There are a variety of benefits to automated blinds as well, such as child safety, security, energy efficiency, and the satisfaction of opening and closing them with the push of a button.
