What window coverings are in style in 2020?

Good question! Plantation shutters have never been more popular, curtains will never go out of fashion, and venetian blinds really do catch the eye when you opt for real wood. But really the choice depends on what you want the rest of your house to look like.


If you want some playful fabrics for the nursery or playroom then you’ll want to take a look at these. If you’re trying to create that rustic meets country vibe that’s so in then take a look here. And if the grey home style is what you’re all about, here’s where you need to look.

When winter comes knocking for another year you’re going to want to put some thought into how your window coverings can keep you warm and cosy. Here’s three bright ideas from our style gurus:


-    Neat Fit blinds will make such a difference because of how much window space you have

-    Full-length curtains are ideal if you want to keep the bedroom or living room nice and snug when the snow is falling and the wind is blowing

-    Shutters give you more options than you might think, especially when you want to keep some of that natural light coming in


Which window coverings are best for sliding glass doors?

We’ll keep this one short and sweet: vertical blinds. They’ll be all you need if you want to put the curtains to one side and add some privacy and style to your sliding doors without any stress. That’s all there is to know really!


How do you find the perfect covering for your room?

This really depends on the style you want. Venetian blinds are ideal for the bathroom where you want privacy, curtains are great for a cosy bedroom or living room, and roman blinds and rollers are ideal for just about everywhere. Just don’t go mad and try and have full-length curtains in your kitchen!
