These Are Ideas You Need to See for New Window Shutters in 2019
Whether you’re considering window treatments for a new home or simply replacing outdated treatments in your existing home, knowledge of 2019’s window shutter trends could help you make your decision. This year’s trends veer towards a classic look, which means your choice could age well and stay in style for years to come.
These are some window shutter trends for 2019:
1. Plantation shutters.
While plantation shutters have been around since the plantation mansions of the 18th century, they aren’t going anywhere any time soon. Why? Plantation shutters remain just as functional as they were then, allowing easy opening and closing of the louvres. They’re available in a range of hardwoods, and the finishes are highly customizable.
For a classic, traditional look, stick with the beautiful wood grains and finish with a stain complementary to the other woodwork in your home. For a more fashion-forward look, custom shutters can be painted to match your trim work, or seize on the distressed trend with distressed or antique paint finishes.
2019 is the year many buyers are making strides towards energy efficiency, and honeycomb shades are the only window treatment on this list that qualifies for the energy tax credit. These aren’t your parents’ honeycomb shades – new in 2019, the availability of richer colors has many homeowners choosing honeycomb shades to make a color statement, especially in rooms with a great deal of windows.
Honeycomb shades can fit almost any window size and are customizable to run in either direction. These shades let in a great deal of natural light, another 2019 design trend. In addition, they are often more affordable than some other window treatments.
In 2019, texture is in. Woven wood shades utilize textures such as reeds, grasses, and weaving to give your window treatments that added bit of texture your room may be missing. Leave them as-is or layer with another window treatment to provide contrast.
