Current Window Covering Trends Continued


In the world of high fashion, it is not unusual to see glitzy fabrics adorning the models as they introduce the season’s latest trends. For the world of interior design, however, curtains made from shimmery metallic materials haven't been commonplace until recent months. In fact, silver-, gold-, and bronze-coloured materials have made quite the name for themselves in the decorating world, and many homeowners are choosing to pair metallic-coloured window treatments with their home decor. When draped from a classic black rod, these treatments add instant elegance to any space.

Whether you’re shopping for shimmery sheer curtains or metallic-inspired blockout eyelet curtains, Quickfit Blinds & Curtains has all the latest trends at styles you want. Browse our wide selection today!

A simple roller shade or an individual curtain set might perform their intended task of keeping the light out of a room, but when installed alone, they can look a little ho-hum. Layering window coverings has really become quite the popular trend in interior design, and although the finished project looks quite complex, this is a very simple look to create. To start, select a set of blinds that suits your style preference and install them on the inside of your window opening so they are flush with the room’s wall. If you have an odd-sized window, our  made-to-measure blinds are an excellent solution. Next, select a set of modern curtains to install over the blinds — we recommend decorator curtains paired with sheer curtains. Before you know it, you’ll have a stunning window treatment that is both affordable and on-trend!

Natural Elements

Having been in high demand for decades, fabrics that include natural elements are always trending in the world of window coverings. If you are considering swapping out your traditional satin or damask curtains to achieve a more earthy, sustainable look, there is no better way to bring nature indoors than by choosing modern curtains that are made from organic materials. For example, pairing a set of bamboo roller shades with  sheer linen-like panels is a simple way to create a natural-looking window treatment, and it allows you to embrace and practice the layering effect we just reviewed. Remember that natural elements are designed to feel light and airy, so take care when choosing your colour choice and material for your curtains.

Alternative Neutrals

In part one of this post, we reviewed that some neutral colours are taking a back seat to more bold and graphic patterns. While some will forever view white, ecru, and beige as timeless, classic colours, these ever-popular hues are finding themselves being replaced with darker, alternative neutrals like charcoal and slate. As you shop for modern curtains, you are likely to notice many options available in these bold neutral shades, and many homeowners are choosing them to add sophistication to a room by elegantly framing large windows with floor-length treatments. In addition to fashionable aesthetics, the darker appearance lends itself well to darkening a room quickly.

Thinking about making the leap to darker alternative neutral window treatments? Check out our  Como Premium Blockout Eyelet Curtains in charcoal or our Sorento Blockout Eyelet Curtain in black. Either is sure to make a dramatic, beautiful statement in your home!
