New Year, New Blinds: Popular Window Blinds in 2023
The New Year is a time for new beginnings, so let’s start with your window treatments!
We’ve been in the business for years, so we know what styles are hot right now and how to make them work for your windows.
Whether you’re jumping in with a complete overhaul for 2023 or just want to update a tired-looking room, let us inspire your home transformations with these unmissable interior design trends.
Perfect Fit Blinds
Perfect fit blinds are one of the best blind options as they are so incredibly versatile, that’s why they retain their popularity year to year, and 2023 looks like it will continue the trend.
Perfect-fit blinds are great for home insulation. Tailor-made to fit in your window frames, these innovative products are designed to fit the exact shape and size of your window to minimise gaps – this makes fitted blinds ideal for regulating the light levels, heat, and privacy of your space.
That makes them the obvious choice for conservatories, velux windows or skylights – or any window that’s an unusual shape, size, or location.
Perfect Fit blinds are ideal for any room in the home, and thanks to their no-drill fitting system, you can have Perfect Fit blinds installed without altering your home—just the peace of mind you needed.
Here at Fraser James Blinds, we stay at the forefront of technology – that’s why we offer our customers the convenience of controlling their blinds using Amazon Alexa. Smart Blinds were very popular in 2022, and in 2023, we can only expect these to become even more popular.
Smart blinds open a whole new world of convenience, allowing you to manage the light levels, privacy, and overall ambience of your home – all from the comfort of your sofa.
They’re also fantastic for older people and those with disabilities, as you don’t need to get to the window to change the shading in your room.
As smart homes become more and more integrated, we expect smart motorised blinds to grow in popularity through 2023 and beyond.
These have been popular for years, but they’re making a huge comeback in 2023. Vertical blinds are a great way to dress up your windows, and they can be fitted to any window size. If you have a large window and want to cover the entire area with blinds, vertical blinds might be your best option.
They can also be used if you’re looking for more privacy than traditional horizontal blinds provide. By blocking out more light, they will help keep curious eyes away from areas of your home that may otherwise be visible.
Vertical blinds come in many different fabrics and colours, so there’s sure to be one that suits your tastes perfectly! In addition to their aesthetic appeal, they are also easy to clean and remove when necessary.
Roman blinds have a rich history and have remained one of the most popular styles of blinds for many years and we can’t see this changing anytime soon!
Roman blinds bring simple, elegant style to any room, offering high levels of privacy in a limitless range of colours, designs, and patterns.
The bespoke Roman blinds at Fraser James Blinds are designed around your needs, with over 300 fabrics to choose from, including lighter fabrics to let more light in, thicker materials to block draughts, and many more.
Roller Blinds are also a trendy choice around the UK and have maintained their popularity for years. But in 2023, there will be more colours, designs, patterns, and fabrics than ever before for creating the perfect blinds for your home.
Roller blinds can be as simple or as creative as you wish; you can keep things clean and contemporary with solid colours and straight lines, or you can opt for a striking combination of scallops, braids, and exotic patterns. With made-to-measure roller blinds from Fraser James Blinds, the choice is entirely yours.
In 2023, we’re seeing a rise in less saturated colours. In fact, Pantone selected Viva Magenta 18-1750, a bold pinkish red, as its 2023 colour of the year. A saturated shade that’s not for the colour shy. If you’re a sucker for keeping on trend, consider this when purchasing your blinds.
Our made-to-measure blinds are available in over 200 fabrics, from thick blackout materials to shade a young child’s bedroom to lighter, more airy fabrics for your living room. Roller blinds are also very easy to clean and maintain, so they’ll last you for years!
Faux Wooden Blinds
Seeking the warm, natural look of wooden blinds without the expense or maintenance? Faux wooden Venetian blinds are the perfect alternative to the real deal, offering the same earthly aesthetic without the risk of warping.
Faux Wooden Blinds have been one of the biggest trends over the last few years. In 2023 that’s not looking likely to change as people opt for the perfect balance of classic elegance, affordable price, and long-lasting durability.
Another upcoming trend in blinds and shutters is outdoor shading. For instance, a made-to-measure awning adds an entirely unique element to your property, transforming your patio area into a distinguished, modern, and attractive setting which can be used at any time of year.
Pergolas are another trend we expect to rise in 2023. Pergolas are extremely sturdy structures and are made from wood, sometimes with cement or metal.
Pergolas are usually free-standing, which is ideal if you want them away from the home, such as next to a pond, flower beds or another garden feature.
If you are looking to improve the energy efficiency of your home and reduce your carbon footprint whilst adding a statement feature, window shutters are the perfect solution.
Interior plantation shutters are one of the most energy-efficient window dressings that you can use, and many people are unaware of this. Did you know that reducing heat loss through your window and doors is actually one of the best ways to keep your house hot and your energy bills low? It’s true!
They will help reduce heat loss in the winter months and reduce heat gain in the summer, perfect for the seemingly dramatic temperature changes in the UK lately.
Along with saving energy, there are countless other benefits to our shutters. The main benefit is of course, that they are incredibly stunning! Therefore, making for a luxury addition to any interior.
