Why Woven Wood Shades are Trending This Year

When choosing window treatments for your home or office, it can be daunting with so many different options to select from. There are shades, blinds, shutters, all in different materials and colors -it can be tricky to figure out what will work best in your space. If you aren’t sure what is right for you, consider woven wood shades. This trendy window covering fits today’s lifestyle and is sure to match perfectly to any space for a refreshing update at an affordable price.

Unlike more elaborate window treatments, woven wood shades are on trend for their more casual, earthy look and eco-friendly appeal. This more relaxed look is gaining popularity – from minimal fashion, makeup, to home décor- natural is an increasingly favored aesthetic. Woven wood shades can be made from different woods, bamboo, reeds, and grasses, bringing the textures of nature into your home while still giving your home a feel of sophistication. “It’s no longer a trend, but more of a philosophy in the evolution of design,” says designer Kerrie Kelly. Woven wood shades say effortless and modern simultaneously.

Woven wood shades are also favored because their neutral tones are versatile for a variety of color schemes. They blend seamlessly and beautifully to work in any space, so do not be afraid to incorporate them into your current décor. For a styling tip, try dressing them up with long curtains. Any color – or even a pattern – is sure to match. If you are considering woven wood shades with the natural wood color, matching the shades to wood floors in your home shouldn’t be a concern. As long as the different woods coordinate together, they will work fine. Multicolor woven woods such as tortoise-shell are another fun design choice that will freshen up your décor. With whatever design or style you choose, woven woods will update your room with a casual, yet put-together feel.
