There are many new advances in window coverings. From motorized shades to new types of fabrics and materials, there are many options to help change the look of a room. Changing the type of window treatments in any room can make a big difference in the look of the room and give more versatility and function to adjust the room’s lighting. If you aren’t sure exactly what type of window coverings and window shades are at the top of the trends list in 2016, read on below for a few ideas.
Eco-friendly Wood Shutters
Nothing accents a home quite like wood shutters on the inside windows. Not only can you close the shutters to the outside, but these shutters are also eco-friendly as well. You have gorgeous shutters to look at and you are doing your part to protect the environment and reduce your carbon footprint on the earth.
Wood shutters never go out of style and will look terrific in a country kitchen or an elegant dining room.
Layered Window Shades
Window shades have always been popular, but now layering them is the next big thing. You can easily install a blackout shade next to a window that has a clear shade installed on it instead. This gives an elegant touch to any room and still lets the light shine in whenever you desire.
Decorate with Metallic
This year, metallic fabrics will be making a major comeback. Silver, gold, and bronze metallic fabrics can be seen in all the popular home decorating magazines. Layering these gorgeous metallic fabrics on a classic curtain rod will go perfectly with the color trends that are already developing for the home this season.

Ease-of-use is a big theme this year. The battery-powered PowerTilt™ system allows you to move the slats of your horizontal or vertical blinds with no extra wiring by using either a remote or a wall switch. Batteries are easy to replace and generally last for up to one year.
