The Newest Window Treatment Trends In Boston02/14/2016Holly Perron Every year, Bay Staters are ready to give their homes a fresh look - including the windows. Curious what the hottest trends in window treatments are? We have the scoop on the trendiest window treatments this year. Reclaimed Wood Shutters Reclaimed wood’s weathered look is one we all fell in love with - from Fenway Park to Saugus Iron Works. It gives us a sense of calm, takes us back to nature, and connects us with history. And there are various ways to incorporate it into your décor. Finally, in 2016, you can have reclaimed wood as a window treatment! Sunburst Shutters & Window Fashions has brought reclaimed wood shutters to Boston after years of research and development, and in partnership with Stikwood. These superior wood shutters incorporate the functionality of a plantation shutter with the beauty of the outdoors. And the result is a piece of art you can show off on your windows. The wooden louvers are naturally curved, reflecting decades spent outside as part of a fence, barn, or building. The marks, holes, and knots are hallmarks of reclaimed wood, making this window treatment so charming to homeowners in Boston. And just like other Sunburst plantation shutter products, reclaimed wood shutters are built with functionality in mind, with louvers that can tilted to control for view and light. Sliding Barn Doors When you think of barn doors, you might picture them as an alternative to a traditional door. But this year’s trend of installing them on windows will make you look at them in a whole new light. [[The look of barn doors on windows is one we love. And it helps that they easily roll across a window. We have a hunch you’ll love them, too! Go for a modern look with a Shaker style three-panel barn door in snow white paint with mini top-mount ultra modern hardware. For a more industrial sliding barn door, choose a standard stile and rail barn door, a fruitwood stain, and mini industrial hardware. Selecting from barn door styles, colors, and hardware gives you the one-of-a-kind look you’ve been wanting. In addition to looking stunning on your window, sliding barn doors are durable and sturdy. They’re built to handle any amount of sliding. 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.
