Best Window Dressing Ideas For 2021

We’re all thinking about how we can spruce up our homes in 2021 so we’ve put together the ultimate guide on dressing your windows in the new year to keep up with upcoming trends to update your home!


Earthy Tones

Grounded earthy tones have been a key trend towards the second half of 2020 so it’s no wonder that the trend is highly likely to continue into 2021. Offering hues of muted greens, blues, browns and taupes, the shades remain neutral allowing them to easily be incorporated into several rooms in the home.

Recently, Dulux announced their 2021 colour of the year as Brave Ground. Described as a bolstering warm taupe shade, the shade represents nature and the simple things in life as well as creating feelings of stability, growth and potential. These Orient Faux Silk Latte Brown Roman blinds are very similar and offer the same vibe, if you are looking for this.

Earthy tones can be complemented with wooden hues, as an alternative shade. We have plenty of real wood and faux wood blinds that would match any home decor without taking over.


Cottagecore Continues

Following similar footsteps as hygge, the cottagecore trend celebrates simplicity and nature. Derived from an internet trend, the style can be represented within homeware and decor through floral patterns and pastel tones.
Our Indonesia Orchid print has cottagecore written all over it, along with the Country Garden blinds. Brightening up your home with a splash of colour and spring, these would make the perfect addition to a neutral space.
Shutters would also complement the trend nicely as they offer the look and feel of a cottage and countryside home, even if you are in the city! Discover our range of high-quality shutters, available in craft or faux wood materials depending on your preference.


Tropical Paradies

We’re all craving a hot, sunny beach holiday so it’s no wonder the tropical trend will be making a comeback in 2021. Bringing the outdoors in, our homes will become your very own tropical paradise, eliminating the need for a real trip (probably not!)

Tropical prints help brighten up the room and will for sure be a feature so choose your window covering wisely! We’ve got a fantastic selection of blinds that match this interior design trend perfectly. If you are looking for roller blinds, say hello to these Lush Jungle Green blinds or if roman blinds are your thing, here is the Manila blinds. We also have a gorgeous selection of curtains, like these Bengal Tiger Velour Twilight ones as they are bold and luxurious!


Statement Patterns

Create a bold feature in your home through a statement window covering. Whether it is blinds or curtains, we have several options to suit your current decor, personal style and practical features too.
Take a look at our Spiral range, which comes in two different shades and offers a fun, vibrant feel. For something less bright and more sophisticated, these curtains are a great choice as they are lighter in tone yet have interesting patterns to draw the eye in.

We think the Silver Birch Shadow blinds will go perfect in a living room or bedroom as they offer privacy and allow you to control the light, whilst being in a fun print. For kitchens or dining rooms, these roller blinds will be great and practical due to it’s water resistant properties and vibrant pattern.
