New Window Styles and Home Trends for 2017 in Sacramento

January 11, 2017

The beginning of the new year is a great time to shake up your interior fashion and window treatments with the best new styles of 2017. From painting your family room, to buying new window treatments or changing out furnishings, we have the scoop on what’s hot in 2017 for home fashion and window treatment trends in Sacramento.

Dusky Colors & Pastels

Both pastels and duskier tones are seeing more use while clear, vibrant colors are trending downward. Shades of cooler colors like blues and grays are extremely popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many colors on the palette are reminiscent of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral colors are still found in the color palette with whites, grays and darker tans giving balance to other hues.

The simplest thing you can do to update the color in your house might be to paint most of your walls a neutral shade and add in flashes of colors with feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s a cinch to have the latest colors in your interior design now and change the little things out when color trends switch in the future.

When thinking about new window coverings, choose those in neutral tones such as Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will easily complement any style or color palette and won’t need to be changed if you switch room colors down the line.

New Trends in Textures

Natural textures continue to be popular this year. Fibers that are hot include woven rugs and baskets, knotted wood, and twine. Designers are finding these textures popping up in new places like on headboards, furniture, and conversation pieces. You can easily incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or creating artwork out of old wood.

Adding textures to your design through window treatments add another degree of interest to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are constructed using old, knotted wood that was once part of fences or buildings. The wood has unique grains and divots that bring an all-natural feel to your home. Additional window treatments that bring texture into your home include Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Home designs that incorporate varying metals are showing up across Sacramento. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially stylish now. You can incorporate metals in your décor by adding industrial, rustic, or vintage pieces such as stools, benches, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t shy away from using nickel or pewter in your sinks or cabinetry for a more contemporary aesthetic.

Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a fantastic way to get the visual benefit of metals and add an industrial or rustic style to your home. Barn doors are made from solid wood and have a variety of hardware to choose from such as rollers, tracks, and door handles that are made of different metals.
