Blinding Inspiration: Top blind trends for 2016
If updating the look of your home is one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2016, there’s no better time than now to start planning. Whether you are intending to change the decor in a particular room or revamp your entire home, researching the interior design trends for the upcoming year will help spark inspiration.
Blinds offer a simple, cost-effective way of enhancing the look of your home without having to renovate the entire property. Our experts at Kingston Blinds Direct have put together a list of the top blinds trends for 2016, so you can find the perfect style to complement your home.
1. Bring the beauty of the outdoors in
Incorporating natural elements into interior design has been a popular trend for many years, and 2016 is looking to be no different. When it comes to blinds, choosing a neutral colour palette and calming tones allows you to integrate a natural feel into your home.
If you are searching for a natural shade of blinds with an earthy texture, look no further than our range of blackout blinds. The woven texture of the Lavish Bronzed Vertical Blind or the brushed wood effect of Kao Inili Vertical Blind
will not only fit with the natural design trend, but it will also instantly inject charm and character into the room.
Alternatively, if you are looking for a patterned blind which fits with this trend, the flower/dandelion print on the Mahari Kahlo blind
or the marble texture on our Marble Finesse blind will complement a natural-themed room perfectly.
Finally, our blackout blinds are also available in a range of neutral block colours, such as Midnight Beige, Midnight Zorro and Kobe Cream, for a subtle, stylish finishing touch.
2. Metallic accents
With a resurgence of retro style, metallic accents have been forecasted as a major interior design trend in 2016. Whether you are looking to create a subtle look or would rather make a bold statement, metallic furnishings can create a sleek, sophisticated style in any room.
Our blackout blinds are available in a wide range of warm metallic hues, such as silver, grey and copper, with a few of the most popular styles including:
3. Bold colours
If you want to incorporate deeper and darker colours into your home decor, why not look to the 60s and 70s trends for inspiration? From subtle caramels and browns to vivid plums and fuschias, there are a wide selection of shades available to create a bold statement in your room. Examples from our range include:
– The deep purple of Midnight Passion
– The nutty brown of Midnight Roast
– The vibrancy of Blocklight Fuschia
