2020 Custom Window Treatment Trends for Homes

Trends can be tough to keep up with until you start seeing them everywhere. Who can forget the 1990’s and their inexplicable obsession with jelly shoes, or the early 2000’s when everyone decided to bleach the tips of their hair? And it isn’t just beauty and fashion that are subjected to the whims of trends: it would be impossible to go to the movies without noticing that every film seems to be tied into some sort of franchise, or that new TV shows all seem to be trying to pick up where Game of Thrones left off. You may love or hate these trends, but there is no denying their existence. That being said, did you know that window fashions have trends, too? Keep reading to let the team at Unusual Designs tell you about several 2020 custom window treatment trends for homes near Portsmouth, VA.

2020 custom window treatment trends for homes near Portsmouth, Virginia (VA) including energy efficiency

Trend#1- Customization

Chances are, if you have been considering purchasing custom coverings for your home, you already understand the benefits of customization. But this is now becoming so exciting that even homeowners who may not have considered it before are hopping on the bandwagon. Shopping for window fashions can be frustrating because of how important they are to the functionality and comfort our homes and with how difficult they can be to match to our décor and install. When it comes to 2020 custom window treatment trends, however, consumers are leaning heavily on “custom.” When you work with us to create your own custom window treatments, you can ensure that all of your needs—be they aesthetic or functional—are met, and we can even help you install them at the end of the process. What could be better?

Trend#2- Energy Efficiency

No matter where you stand on the issue, it’s hard to overstate how important the concept of energy efficiency has been in the cultural conversation over the last few years. And although all window fashions make your home more energy efficient to varying extents by blocking natural light from coming into your home and providing your windows with insulation, when it comes to 2020 custom window treatment trends, energy efficiency is high on the list. Hunter Douglas offers several varieties of energy-efficient honeycomb cellular shades that can help keep your home comfortable all year long, and can even help you save some money on your energy bill in the process.

Trend#3- Automation

Home automation has absolutely taken American homes by storm. Who would have thought that the voice-activated home automation technology from Amazon and Google would become inescapable features of our homes? But home automation can be about more than just wi-fi enabled thermostats or video doorbell systems. When it comes to 2020 custom window treatment trends, you can choose to automate or motorize your custom window fashions from Hunter Douglas with the PowerView® automation system. With PowerView®, you can adjust your window coverings from anywhere in your home, or even anywhere in the world that has a wi-fi connection. While this may be a trend for 2020, it is one we anticipate will stick around.
