Move over vertical blinds, a newer and sleeker version has come to take your place. Panel track blinds from Hunter Douglas are now your best answer for large and small windows alike. When fully opened the individual panels tightly stack together to give you the most sunlight possible. When you close them, you can enjoy all the rich textures and fabrics that they come in.



Choose either cord, wand, or PowerView operating systems for your gliding window panels


Not only do gliding panels look amazing as window treatments, but they can also be used as a unique and stylish room divider. You can choose either a cord, wand, or PowerView motorization to open and close your panels. They also have the option of a centre as well as side to side opening.


Trend #2: Organic Is “In” and What Could Be More Organic Than Wood?

Organic is hot this season in every area of your home, from organic upholstery to floor coverings. Your window treatments are no exception. That is why wood is still a popular option for blinds. Wooden blinds will give your room a classic look that will last and be in style for years to come.

If you want the look of natural wood without the worry of fading, yellowing, warping, or bowing in your bathroom, kitchen, or in a room that has full sun, then take a look at the realistic faux wood alternatives available today. Many blinds such as Hunter Douglas’ TruGrain have the classic look of wood with the worry-free maintenance of a man-made material.


Trend #3: Move Over White and Beige, the New Neutrals are Charcoal Grey and Slate

This season you will be seeing a shift from the traditional neutral shades of white and beige to the deeper neutral shades of charcoal and slate grey. These darker shades still go great with any decor but they give a much more sophisticated look to your room. Greys beautifully define any window and make your window treatments really stand out while complementing any pops of colour you may add to your decor. Greys will also work well with various popular trim colours on your window frames and other mouldings in your room.

Trend #4: Layering Your Blinds with Stylish Valences or Curtains

Add a perfect finishing touch to your blinds with a sophisticated valance, cornice, swag or cascade. You can either choose a more subtle effect like the understated valence displayed above by Graber or you can go for a more dramatic effect like the cascading scarf swag valance displayed below. The gentle folds of fabric draped along the top and sides of your window treatment will give your blind a soft, waterfall feeling.
