Want to know what the newest window treatment trends are? We have all the details on 2016’s window treatment trends. Reclaimed Wood Shutters The weathered look of reclaimed wood is one we all fell in love with - from NRG Stadium to the Woodlands. It gives us a sense of calm, takes us back to nature, and connects us with history. And there are numerous ways to incorporate it into your décor. 2016 marks the first year you can have reclaimed wood as a window treatment! Sunburst Shutters has brought reclaimed wood shutters to Houston after years of research and development. Our partnership with Stikwood means that these premium wood shutters incorporate the functionality of a plantation shutter with the beauty of the outdoors. And the outcome is artwork right on your windows. The natural curvature of the wooden louvers is a reflection of decades spent as part of a building, fence, or barn. The marks, holes, and knots are rustic elements of reclaimed wood that make this window treatment so appealing to homeowners in Houston. And just like other Sunburst plantation shutter products, the louvers of reclaimed wood shutters are fully functional and tilt to adjust for light and view. 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 way. A window treatment that makes a stunning statement and easily slides across the window...what’s not to love about sliding barn doors? Go for a modern look with a Shaker style five-panel barn door in snow white paint, accentuated with mini top-mount ultra modern hardware. For a more industrial sliding barn door, select a standard stile and rail barn door with a fruitwood stain and mini industrial hardware. Mixing and matching colors, hardware, and barn door styles results in the exceptional look you’ve been wanting. Sliding barn doors are more than just a pretty window treatment. They’re durable and sturdy. They can handle all the times you slide them open and closed. So go ahead and slide them closed to cover the window - or slide them open to frame the view.
