A third of 2018 is already gone and more and more people are looking to window blinds to add to the elegance of their homes and offices.

Below are the trends that are dominating 2018.

Roman blinds

Roman shades have become a trendy way to add elegance, beauty and versatility to homes. The shades fold into themselves either at the top or at the bottom of your window. You can choose from a large variety of elegant shades and patterns. However, most people are choosing to have them custom designed to suit different needs.

Custom designs allow you to choose the ideal amount of light for your house. They are particularly trendy for kitchens and bathrooms.

A minor disadvantage of Roman shades is that they can from a large stack at the bottom or at the top when unfolded. This should, however, not discourage you from exploring this trend.

Roller blinds

This simple option has been trending a lot in 2018. They are made from a variety of fabric that offers a simple and elegant feel to a room. They are available in a variety of shades and patterns for different needs. The fact that they are cheap and easy to install has made roller blinds a home favorite.

The variety of materials for roller shades mean that you can choose one that lets in a lot of light or one that lets in little light. This also means that they blend easily to different interior design themes.

Solar shades

Solar shades are similar to roller shades. The major difference is that solar shades regulate the amount of sun rays entering a room. This means that they allow you to regulate the amount of light and heat into a specific room. They have especially caught on in areas that receive a lot of sunlight, areas such as Australia.

In addition, solar shades can add to the style of a room to give it a unique feel. They blend easily with most interior design themes while also providing the required privacy.

Plantation shutters

Despite being a rather expensive option plantation shutters have caught on in 2018. This is mostly because they add style and elegance to a room. Most people prefer to paint them white but you can paint a natural stain on them. This means that they fit it in with most interior decor. They are especially perfect for bathrooms but can also be used in other rooms in the house.

They also allow enough light to get in while still ensuring privacy. In addition, they do all of this while allowing enough air to pass through. Their durability is also another reason why you should join many other people in choosing plantation shutters.

Conclusion.

As seen above, most people are choosing minimalistic window blinds. These provide functionality while adding style and quality.

You should, however, avoid using too many colors and patterns for your blinds. If you go for multiple colors, you have to be careful and makes sure that they do not clash.

Most people are going for uniform themes and they are enjoying the results.
