New Window Styles and Home Trends for 2017 in Clearwater

January 11, 2017

This time of year is a great time to revitalize your home design and window treatments with the best new styles of 2017. From painting your living room, to buying new window treatments or changing out furniture, we have the scoop on what’s in vogue this year for home fashion and window treatment trends in Clearwater.

Dusky Hues & Pastels

Both pastels and dusky colors are seeing more use while clear, vibrant colors are seeing less use. Shades of gray, blue and green are extremely popular in addition to muted hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many hues on the spectrum are suggestive of nature from sky blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color palette with whites, grays and darker beiges giving balance to other hues.

The simplest way to add a spark to the color in your home may be to paint most of your walls a neutral color and add in pops of colors through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s simple to highlight the latest colors in your interior design now and swap the little things out when color trends adapt down the road.

When thinking about new window coverings, pick ones in neutral tones such as Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a wood-like stain. These will easily complement any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed if you switch room colors in the future.

Natural Textures

Natural textures will remain popular in 2017. Fibers trending up include weaved material in rugs or baskets, rustic wood, and twine. You’ll see these textures showing up in new places such as on headboards, furniture, and art work. Add new life into an old belonging with a small project like wrapping a frame in twine or making an interest piece from old wood.

Incorporating texture into your house through window treatments add another layer of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are built using aged, knotted wood that was once part of fences or buildings. The wood has unique knots and grain lines that bring an all-natural feel to your home. Other window coverings that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Accessories and hardware that incorporate different metals are popping up across Clearwater. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially popular now. You can incorporate metals in your décor by finding industrial, homespun, or older pieces such as stools, benches, or lamps that are built from metals. Also, don’t shy away from using nickel or pewter in your faucets or cabinetry for a more contemporary aesthetic.
