The verdict is in – 2020 is officially the year for home improvements. With more time available than ever before to dedicate purely to staying in (if not by choice), it should come as no surprise that people are taking this time to tick off all the projects on their list and spot some new ones as well.
If you want to bring your home into the new decade, updating your window furnishings should be your first choice.
Take your blinds into 2020 with these sizzling trends:
1. Sunlit Spaces
Our biggest tip for making your home feel contemporary yet personal, comfortable and welcoming? Natural sunlight of course! Inviting sunlight into your home doesn’t mean you have to say no to having premium blinds though – consider choosing lighter fabrics, both in terms of colour and transparency. If you still want that thick darkness that comes with blockout blinds, we recommend dual rollers; that way you can enjoy the best of both worlds.
2. Custom Finishes
Nothing says opulence quite like bespoke furnishings, and are no exception. By taking the custom route, you can be sure that every last detail has been designed with you in mind, from the fabric to the fit within your window frames. At Amaru, we have a huge range of quality blinds in Melbourne, all of which can be customised to you and your tastes. Luxury never goes out of fashion, so this is a great time to treat yourself.
3. Natural Fibres
If we’ve noticed anything in recent years, it’s that natural, organic textures and finishes aren’t just having a moment, they’re here to stay! Consider linens or even woven fibres like rattan, and use colours that are found in abundance outdoors, like oat, sage or off-white. Timber venetians are other great choice, and ours are made from sustainably sourced materials, so you can be confident they tick all the boxes.
4. Sustainable Living
Speaking of sustainability, the ‘natural trend’ doesn’t stop at earthy hues. It’s more important than ever to consider how you can cut down on carbon emissions and live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle. One great way to do this is with cellular blinds: by adding an extra layer of insulation to your windows, you can keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter, without the need to blast the AC or split system. Customised to your home, these blinds are as attractive as they are functional.
5. Pops of Colour
What better way to celebrate 2020 than with the Pantone Colour of the Year – Classic Blue. With a calming, indigo hue, this shade might be just what we need to bring a sense of comfort into our homes. If you’re not quite ready for a block of deep blue, consider a lighter shade, soft patterns or even a separate yet bold pelmet.
For unique blinds for every home that are as fashionable as they are timeless, there is no better choice than Amaru. Our Melbourne-based designers have their ears to the ground to ensure they never miss a trend. Whether you’re on the hunt for custom roller blinds, insulating cellular styles or anything in between, our huge range of quality window blinds will make all your home improvement dreams come true.
