New Window Styles and Home Trends for 2017 in Salt Lake City

January 11, 2017

This time of year is an ideal time to update your home design and window treatments with the new styles of 2017. Whether it’s painting your living room, buying new window treatments or changing out accessories, we have tips on what’s in vogue this year for home fashion and window treatment trends in Salt Lake City.

Duskier Hues & Pastels

Both pastels and duskier tones are seeing more use while clear, bright colors are seeing less use. Shades of gray, blue and green are extremely popular in addition to dusty hues of pink, blue, and yellow. Many colors on the palette are reminiscent of nature from deep blue to Pantone’s color of the year, “Greenery.”. Neutral tones are still found throughout the color spectrum with whites, grays and darker browns giving balance to other shades.

The simplest thing you can do to update the color in your home is to paint most of your walls a neutral color and add in flashes of colors through feature walls, accessories, and small furnishings. Then it’s a cinch to use the latest colors in your interior design now and swap the accessories out when color trends adapt down the road.

When considering new window treatments, pick those in neutral colors like Polywood® plantation shutters in white or a natural wood color stain. These will blend in easily with any style or color scheme and won’t need to be changed if you switch room colors in the future.

Natural Textures

Natural textures aren’t going anywhere in 2017. Fibers trending up include woven rugs and baskets, rustic wood, and twine. We’re seeing these textures popping up in new places like on furniture, headboards, and conversation pieces. You can easily incorporate what you already own and add texture to it like wrapping a frame in twine or making artwork from old wood.

Incorporating texture into your home through window treatments add another level of style to your décor. Reclaimed wood shutters are built using aged, knotted wood that was once part of fences or structures. The wood has unique knots and grain lines that bring an organic feel to any home. Additional window treatments that add texture include Ovation® wood shutters or traditional woven shades.


Accessories and furnishings that incorporate multiple metals are popping up across Salt Lake City. Nickel, wrought iron, and gold are especially stylish in 2017. You can add metals to your décor by adding industrial, rustic, or retro pieces such as bar stools, benches, or light fixtures that are built from metals. Also, don’t hesitate to utilize nickel or pewter in your sinks or hardware for a more fashion-forward look.

Sliding barn doors and barn door shutters are a stunning way to get the visual benefit of metals and add a streamlined or homespun look to your house. Barn doors are constructed from solid wood and are available in a wide array of hardware such as wheels, sliding tracks, and pull handles that are made of steel.
