The Newest Trends In Window Treatments In Raleigh02/14/2016Blake Jarman Every year, North Carolinians get excited to redecorate their homes, starting with the windows. If you’re curious about what the newest trends in window treatments are, we have the scoop on this year’s window treatment trends. Reclaimed Wood Shutters We all fell in love with reclaimed wood’s weathered look, from The Research Triangle to Tobacco Road. It gives us a sense of calm, takes us back to nature, and connects us with history. And there are so many ways to decorate the room with it. Finally, in 2016, you can have reclaimed wood as a window treatment! Sunburst Shutters has brought reclaimed wood shutters to Raleigh after years of testing. Our partnership with Stikwood means that these exclusive wood shutters incorporate operational plantation shutters with rustic charm. And the result is artwork right on your windows. The curvature of the wooden louvers reflects decades spent outside as part of a barn, building, or fence. The holes, knots, and marks are hallmarks of reclaimed wood, making this window treatment so charming to homeowners in Raleigh. And just like other plantation shutters from Sunburst, the louvers of reclaimed wood shutters are fully functional and tilt to control for brightness and view. Sliding Barn Doors Barn doors aren’t a new trend in home décor. But barn doors for windows are. A window treatment that makes a stunning statement and easily glides across the window...what’s not to love about sliding barn doors? Go for a contemporary look with a Shaker style two-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. Mixing and matching colors, hardware, and barn door styles gives you the exceptional look you’ve been wanting. Sliding barn doors are more than just a pretty window treatment. They’re durable and sturdy. They’re built to handle any amount of sliding. So go ahead and slide them closed to cover the window - or slide them open to frame the view. Either way, these barn doors stand out! What’s more is that 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. Custom Color Shutters If you’ve always wanted plantation shutters in colors other than white, this year is your year. Our Polywood® shutter comes in hundreds of paint colors.
