Finding the right window treatments for modern homes

Although buying blinds seems straightforward, choosing new window coverings presents difficulties for some homeowners. Why? For one, the market is currently flooded with decent window covering options. It can be hard to navigate the morass of seemingly identical blinds and shades. 

Before looking for new window coverings, homeowners should be able to answer these three questions:

  1. What’s your budget?
  2. In which room(s) will the window coverings be installed?
  3. What are your style preferences?

Knowing your budget, the location of the window coverings, and your taste will help narrow your search. By using this knowledge as a starting point, you can refine your search and decide which window coverings will look and perform best in your home. Remember, if you need some extra guidance, you can always contact the window treatment specialists at A+ Blinds

Which blinds are in style this year?

With the large amount of blinds available today, homeowners can easily find affordable window coverings that meet their needs. We’ve outlined five of the most popular blinds in 2021 below.  

Best blinds for environmentally conscious homeowners

For homeowners who want to reduce their environmental impact, sustainably sourced, natural window coverings—such as wood blinds—are an appealing option. An elegant window treatment, wood blinds offer advanced light protection and privacy. Plus, wood blinds can be installed in almost any room (with the exception of especially humid rooms) and are available in a variety of sizes. 

Best blinds for large windows

Struggling to find modern blinds for large windows? Look no further than panel track blinds. A stylish alternative to vertical blinds, panel track blinds consist of large fabric panels that slide horizontally. Easy to use and highly customizable, panel track blinds are available in a variety of sizes and materials.

Best blinds for new parents

Ready to take cord cutting a step further? Cordless window coverings are a safe and user-friendly window treatment for homeowners with small children and pets. Especially useful in nurseries, bedrooms, and playrooms, cordless blinds give parents peace of mind while also giving rooms a modern look. 

Best blinds for sliding doors

Vertical blinds consist of vertical slats that slide from side to side, making them a natural choice for sliding glass doors. Incredibly customizable, these blinds can be made with a wide range of materials, including fabric, sheer, and vinyl. Vertical blinds are also popular options for patio doors and bay windows. 

Best blinds for smart homes

Do you regularly talk to your Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa device? Have you already installed your app-based security system and WiFi thermostat? If so, the next frontier of smart home programming may be investing in motorized blinds. Motorized blinds allow homeowners to raise, lower, and tilt blinds via remote control. Perfect for homeowners with accessibility needs, motorization allows users to adjust one or several blinds at a time.
