The Hottest Trends In Window Treatments In Austin02/14/2016Tyler Jorgensen 2016 is in full swing. And Austinites get excited to give their homes a fresh look - including the windows. Wondering what the hottest trends in window treatments are? We have all the details on 2016’s window treatment trends. Reclaimed Wood Shutters We all fell in love with the weathered look of reclaimed wood, from The University of Texas to McKinney Falls State Park. It takes us back to nature, connects us with history, and gives us a sense of calm. And there are numerous ways to use it in your home. This year, you can finally have a window treatment made from reclaimed wood! Sunburst Shutters has brought reclaimed wood shutters to Austin after years of testing. Our partnership with Stikwood means that these superior wood shutters incorporate the functionality of a plantation shutter with the beauty of the outdoors. And the outcome is a masterpiece you can show off on your windows. The natural curvature of the wooden louvers is a reflection of decades spent outside as part of a fence, barn, or building. The knots, marks, and holes are rustic elements of reclaimed wood, making this window treatment so appealing to homeowners in Austin. And similar to other plantation shutter products from Sunburst, the louvers of reclaimed wood shutters are fully functional and tilt to adjust for light and view. Sliding Barn Doors Barn doors for windows are a hot trend in interior design that’s here to stay. We love their look and how easy they glide across a window - and we have a feeling you will, too! Go for a modern look with a Shaker style three-panel barn door in snow white paint, and complement it with mini top-mount ultra modern hardware. For a more industrial sliding barn door, choose a standard stile and rail barn door with a fruitwood stain and mini industrial hardware. Combining different hardware, styles, and colors gives you the unique look you want. Sliding barn doors are more than just a pretty window treatment. They’re sturdy and durable. They can handle all the times you slide them open and closed. The allure of this window treatment lies in the beauty of the barn door panels as they cover the window when closed and frame the view when opened. And did we mention? You can match the barn doors on your windows to the barn door in the doorway. Complementing the room’s décor couldn’t be easier.
