Window Treatment Trends & Options
Wondering what window treatments are in style these days? You’re in the right place!
We offer a complete line of custom window covering options to our custom home and renovation clients through our partner, Lafayette Interior Fashions. This family-owned and -operated business serves the world from West Lafayette, Indiana, where talented craftspeople create the highest quality blinds, shades, shutters, draperies and more. Their 250,000-square-foot facility is one of few family-owned premier manufacturing sites still doing business in the U.S.
Let’s take a closer look at a few window treatment options. Then we’ll discuss some window treatment trends for 2023 before touching on what’s involved in a typical Weaver Custom Homes window treatment installation.
Modern Cellular Shades
Our most modern custom window treatment ideas take shape with cellular shades. These sleek shades rest fully inside the window frame for a minimalist effect that complements contemporary and transitional interiors. And Lafayette makes this a truly custom window treatment with their range of options that include top-down, bottom-up and two shades in one, as well as opacity levels from sheer and semi-sheer to semi-opaque and opaque. An added benefit to cellular shades is their insulating properties that help prevent heat loss in winter and retain cool air in summer.
Classic Wood Blinds
A natural choice for a truly timeless look, wood blinds are the window treatment that defies window treatment trends. This is the classic choice for warming up any room design. Lafayette lets you choose from 65 paint and stain colors, plus various slat sizes to complement any space. You can even use this window treatment idea in areas exposed to high heat and humidity, thanks to composite wood blinds that offer the look of the real thing combined with durability that stands up to environmental changes.
Bold Plantation Shutters
One of the window treatment trends of 2022 that will continue in 2023 is plantation shutters. Along with a bold yet clean aesthetic that suits both traditional and contemporary styles, these shutters offer maximum energy efficiency and light control with a fit that’s snug to the frame. They’re also child- and pet-friendly because there are no dangling strings to get caught in, and they’re incredibly durable and low-maintenance.
Custom Window Treatment Materials and Fabrics
Whether you’re looking to complement your home’s exterior style with your interior design or you need to update the look of your traditional home, custom window treatments bring style and substance to any room. As a licensed Lafayette dealer, we can walk you through all your window treatment options, including fabrics and materials with moisture-resistant, light control and energy efficient properties. We’ll discuss available lifting systems, including cordless options for homes with kids or pets. When you meet with us in our award-winning Design Center in historic Wooster, Ohio, you’ll get to touch and choose styles, colors and materials as we guide you toward the custom window treatment that looks and feels like home.
