When considering the interior of your home, it is important to pay attention not only to the selection of finishing materials for the floor, walls and ceiling, and furnishing of rooms, but also to the options for decorating windows. In modern design, where absolute harmony is especially important, and every decision must be fully justified, traditional curtains can not always fully realize your creative idea.

In 2021, interior experts offer to look at window openings’ design a little wider – especially since today you have many more options at your disposal than the usual curtains. We present several trends that may well interest you and open up new possibilities for individual design.

Roller blinds and roman blinds

Minimalism and functionality prevailing everywhere have penetrated the sphere of window treatment. Simple and clean lines promise true harmony and surprisingly comfortable regulation of natural light in the apartment. It is not surprising that designers’ choice fell on roller blinds and roman blinds – they fit perfectly into the concept of modern interiors.

Roller blinds have already gained popularity among those who prefer colors and textures that are close to nature. Silently sliding canvases provide the necessary protection from outside light, and the variety of models offered by the designers turns them into a great interior accent.

Those who still do not mind adding a little more decorative details to their home interior should pay attention to Roman blinds. The aesthetics and practicality of such a solution captivate both lovers of the classics and connoisseurs of modern laconicism – the graceful and neat folds of curtains fit into any environment and add airiness and softness to it. In 2021, you should take a closer look at the following options for Roman blinds:

  • canvases with decorative, possibly contrasting edging;
  • curtains with luxurious baroque or classic ornaments (the technique is relevant even for a modern interior);
  • natural textures of flax and burlap;
  • blue and white patterns;
  • geometric pattern.

As for the colors for Roman and roller blinds, here among the favorites were light shades of brown and gray, as well as soft green, lavender, pale blue, berry, and rich golden and orange tones.

Blinds and shutters

Shutters have regained their former popularity with the return of styles such as retro, nautical and neoclassical. Such solutions can bring character and elegance to the interior, and the most ardent fans of comfort will appreciate the ease of control. Today manufacturers offer designs made of natural wood and the most modern moisture-resistant materials – so that in the bathroom, you can also decorate the windows in an extremely stylish way.

As for the blinds, their practicality and functionality do not need any introduction. However, their ability to play the role of a decorative accent is often leveled out – and this is what the designers propose to correct such an injustice. It is not surprising that the fashionable blinds ideas proposed for 2021 will delight you with their eccentricity, because among them:

  • bamboo and rattan structures;
  • models with unusual horizontal and vertical slats;
  • eco-friendly pleated blinds;
  • vertical blinds with exclusive photo printing.

As for color, in the coming season, the monopoly of white is over. Light pink, pale yellow, dusty blue, peach, and silver tones come to the fore.

High tech

Controlling window systems directly from the sofa is now a reality. Automation and motorization are the perfect opportunities to improve the quality of life, bring comfort to the next level, and take another step into the future.

Don’t think that automated systems and motorized options are still rare today. Manufacturers have already presented a considerable number of solutions on the market, grouped into the following varieties:

  • Automatic roller shutters. A practical solution, which is a set of lamellas screwed onto a shaft. A decorative box hides all guides, and control is possible from a remote control, smartphone, or Smart Home system.
  • Raf curtains. Designed for large window openings. They are installed outside and controlled remotely, making them an excellent solution for the country and private houses.
  • Awnings. Electric blinds on roll-up fabric. Today there are more than seven types of such systems. An important feature: today, awnings have a sensor, which automatically folds the material in strong winds.
  • Vertical and horizontal automatic blinds. They can be metal, plastic, fabric, and with photo printing. Ease of control will allow you to adjust the lighting at home by pressing a couple of buttons.
  • Automatic pleated blinds. Modern technologies make it possible to equip corrugated blinds of any configuration with an electric drive – including double-layer “day-night”.

Fittings and curtain rods as decorative elements

On the eve of 2021, designers are urged to consider window treatment as a single complex solution in which every detail is essential. This approach allows you to transfer curtain rods and accessories for curtains into the category of decorative accents. A lot of effort has been put into this by the designers who have presented several stylish solutions for both classic curtains and new generation window systems:

  • shiny chrome-plated curtain rods and hooks;
  • acrylic decorative and finishing elements;
  • curtain rods coated with copper and brass.

A bit of floral retro

To look out the window and see a blooming garden – in a modern urban landscape, this may be just a dream. That is why in 2021, such an expressive emphasis was made on the materials with floral patterns for roller blinds and Roman blinds. Against the background of monochrome’s popularity, such a solution is very non-standard; however, it is such a fabric that will bring an unobtrusive elegant accent into the interior.

Simultaneously, the designers suggest opting for pastel background shades with color intensity – such as pistachio, cream, powdery, lavender, mint, and soft coral.

Window decoration is an essential element for a balanced and harmonious design. When planning an interior renovation in 2021, take the time to find the right solutions: taking care of such details will help you achieve the much-desired atmosphere of individuality, security, and well-being.
