2018 Blinds Style Predictions

Find a blinds style for your home

Smart home tech

This year, it's all about blinds that integrate into the modern smart home. Smart home technology is quickly becoming a normal part of our everyday life, so it makes sense for window dressings to keep up. Some of the amazing benefits of smart blinds include temperature monitoring and voice activation for opening, closing or adjusting.

Black, white and neutral colours

Always popular with curtains and sheers, neutral shades are set to be bigger than ever in 2018. Splashes of classic black in curtains and blinds help break up the more traditional whites and creams and adds drama and effortless style to your space.

Millennial Pink

People everywhere are swooning over this insanely trendy hue, dubbed 'Millennial Pink'. It’s a soft and powdery shade of pink that’s timeless yet very 'now', making it an uber popular design choice of late. Our tip? Style your millennial pink blinds or curtains with pops of golds and corals for seriously up-to-the-minute style.

Natural, organic and hand-made

You've probably noticed a huge current trend around embracing old technologies and arts. Everything from macramé wall hangings and handmade pots and planters to objects with raw, natural edges are suddenly bang-on-trend. To work this trend into your window dressings, opt for rich, textured linens with splashes of burnt orange, bright ochre and cement hues in curtains or go for earthy materials like timber in your blinds and shutters.
