Window Treatment Wednesday: Analyzing Texture Trends for Window Treatments


Woven Woods Window Treatment

The current window treatment offerings include something for everyone. No matter what your style preferences are or how your home is decorated, Hirshfield’s Window Fashions offers options that will be a perfect fit.

If you’re struggling for ideas, adding a textural dimension to your window covering has a time-honored appeal. You can use a textured window treatment in a utilitarian fashion or step it up and let the window treatment be the focal point in a room.

Textured Shades

Woven wood shades have become a classic window treatment solution. The combination of natural woods, bamboo, and reeds creates a timeless treatment suitable for any style of home. An option for contemporary and traditional styles, woven woods offer natural beauty that complements almost any setting. What’s more, delicate and durable grass weave shades is another wonderful treatment possibility to consider.

Textured Blinds

Wood blinds, with either a stained or painted finish, offer yet another texture to a room. The smooth, more regimented lines feel right at home in both sleek contemporary and more laid-back cottage decor. They’re also exceptionally easy to maintain and can help prevent heat transfer—improving your home’s energy efficiency.

Fabric Options

The Hunter Douglas Silhouette offers more choices in texture with the Alustra Brio fabric fast becoming a favorite for clients. Drapery panels are another beautiful choice that can add texture to a room. Additionally, upgraded style and sound absorption are other potential added benefits of choosing fabric coverings for your windows.

Selecting the Right Option for Your Home

Make certain your window treatments inject the appropriate texture to balance a room. Too often, the texture is overlooked as a consideration, even though it can entirely alter the ambiance of a room.

For a hard, predominantly wood-filled space with few upholstered pieces, select soft, voluptuous curtain fabrics. In a carpeted room with plain drywall or plaster walls, consider wooden blinds or shades to inject the warmth of natural wood tones. Or you can create a mixture of textures in a single window treatment to provide textural richness and depth.

We had a great experience ordering custom shades for our primary bath and bedrooms. A design consultant came to our home and she was great. She listened to us and suggested just the right color and type of shade.
