The items listed below are some of the window coverings we offer that are trending in 2016 and can help revitalize your home’s appearance and overall style:
Shutters aren’t just for the outside of your home. Our indoor faux wood Plantation Shutters are one of our newest products and represent one of the most popular current trends in window coverings. Placing shutters indoors is making a big comeback in homes across the country due to their elegant appearance and timeless design.
Although these are considered a trendy item, their appearance is anything but, as they feature a truly classic look that effortlessly matches almost any home décor. Best of all, their faux wood materials make them durable and lightweight. Order yours in three different colors—Cotton, Pearl, and Vanilla.
Natural and eco-friendly materials are trending up in 2016, and it’s no different for window coverings. Our Cordless Bamboo Woven Wood Shades are not only manufactured using all-natural materials, they’re also free from cords, chains, or loops, making them both low-profile and safe for children and pets. The bamboo fabrics beautifully filter the light that enters your home while protecting your privacy.
These shades are also among our newest offerings and are available in six distinct natural colors and patterns, including Key West Cocoa, Waikiki Tortoise, and Maya Camel. Order yours to fit windows up to 72” wide and 72” high.
One of the biggest trends for 2016 is warming and lighting your home with the sun’s rays, and one of the best window coverings for doing that is our 3” Premium Light Filtering Sheer Shades. When opened, these shades let in copious amounts of filtered natural light that will instantly brighten any room in your home, but they also close to block out 99 percent of UV rays and protect your family’s privacy.
These shades are among the cutting-edge when it comes to their design, as the 3” horizontal light-filtering fabric vanes rest between double layers of knitted fabric sheers for the ultimate in versatility.

Patterns and thick, intricate window coverings are poised to become hot ticket items in 2016, and our Premium Roman Shades Group D check both boxes. These Roman shades are manufactured using high-quality materials and can be ordered with two different fold style choices—plain or soft—and each can make a dramatic impact on the appearance of your windows. To create a fully matte and low-profile appearance, the lift cord for these shades is hidden behind them, but you can also order a top down/bottom up option.
As far as patterns go, these shades are among our most versatile. Choose from bold patterns like Rhapsody Brick, Charleston Blue, Findlay Shadow, and Essence Smoke to get the perfect match for your home’s furnishings, color scheme, and décor.
Aluminum mini blinds are among the most commonly installed window treatments in the country, and for good reason—they’re highly effective at blocking out sunlight and highly durable and resistant to fading, cracking, and warping. What makes these blinds trendy for 2016 are the color choices—especially Brushed Aluminum. Metallic colors and color schemes are making a big push to the forefront of home décor this year, and these blinds will fit perfectly in homes that feature that design.
Get yours cut to fit windows up to 122” wide and 108” high, and check out additional colors like White Gloss, Snow Cap, Char Brown, and Black Satin before placing your order.
A big focus for many homeowners in 2016 will be making their abodes as insulated and airtight as possible to cut down on energy bills during the summer and winter.
