The new year is upon us, and now is the perfect time to refresh your home. Updating your window treatments can transform the look of your home’s design. The best place to start is by looking at 2024 window treatment trends. From motorization to sustainability, there are new features that are sure to elevate your home’s windows. Or perhaps your windows would look beautiful with layered drapery featuring a bold pattern in natural colors. Consider one or more of these trends for your home’s windows.
Smart Home Integrations
Embrace convenience and innovation with motorized window treatments. Smart window treatments elevate your home's functionality. With smart home features being added to all areas of the home, why not consider adding them to your window treatments? This home upgrade will add convenience, improve home energy efficiency, and could increase home value. Motorized window treatments are also the perfect solution for oversized or hard to reach windows.
Gotcha Covered works with multiple window treatment brands that offer motorized window treatments. You can add a motorized feature to roller, pleated, cellular, and solar shades. Modern motorized window treatments can be controlled through a remote, smartphone app, or your voice. To power your new shades, you have the option of DC power, rechargeable, alkaline, or satellite battery packs. You can integrate your motorized window treatments if you already have a smart home system. This includes Alexa, Apple HomeKit, and Google Assistant. Another option is to schedule your window treatments to adjust at a specific time to match your schedule. Or you can have them move with the changing weather temperatures.
Gotcha Covered’s team of experts can provide you with a complimentary in-home consultation. They can help determine which motorized window treatments work best for your home needs.
Alta Window Fashions
More homeowners are consciously choosing to use sustainable materials for their window treatments. Popular materials include bamboo, hemp, and organic cotton. These natural materials exude a unique charm and reduce the ecological footprint of your window coverings. Incorporating recycled fabrics derived from PET bottles further amplifies this commitment to sustainability.
You actively foster a more environmentally responsible lifestyle by choosing eco-friendly materials and recycled fabrics. Gotcha Covered works with window treatment brands that offer a broad range of window treatments made from sustainable materials. Hunter Douglas now offers GreenScreen Sea-Tex fabric made from recovered shoreline plastic. Horizons Shades has an impressive selection of natural woven shades made from renewable materials like grasses, jute, and bamboo.
In addition to sustainable products, window treatments can contribute to a more energy-efficient home. Alta Window Fashions offers Eclipse Shutters with pockets of air incorporated into the louvers and frame. This reduces solar heat gain in the summer and loss in the winter. Alta also has a UV-blocking fabric line that reduces solar glare and heat transfer.
Layering Multiple Treatments
Some homeowners find that choosing one window treatment does not address all their needs. This has led to layering window treatments becoming more popular. Layering sheer drapery with blackout blinds combines practicality and style for window treatments. In contrast, the drapery could be a heavier, light-blocking material that gets paired with a sheer shade. It also creates depth and visual texture. Homeowners can adjust their window treatments throughout the day. Perhaps they pull back their light-blocking window treatments during the day. That way, the maximum amount of natural light comes in. Then, they could fully close the light-blocking window treatment in the evening and at night. That way, there is maximum privacy or darkness. Beyond functionality, layered window treatments create a sophisticated look that elevates a window's design.
For complete control while maintaining a simpler look, Horizons Shades offers an operable lining feature. Homeowners can independently operate the privacy or blackout lining behind their chosen shade design. This lets homeowners maintain privacy and light control while also having complete design freedom for their window treatments.
Black and White
The timeless elegance of black and white themes emerges as a popular window treatment trend for 2024. This classic yet contemporary approach captivates homeowners seeking sophistication in their decor. The stark black against pristine white creates a striking visual contrast. It creates a sense of modernity and refinement in window coverings.
This trend works well with another 2024 trend, minimalism. It also creates a timeless look that will continue to look beautiful throughout the changing trends.
Natural and Muted Colors
In 2024, a serene and calming ambiance takes center stage in window treatment trends. You will see a shift in homeowner preferences towards natural and muted colors.
Homeowners are embracing earthy tones and soft neutrals to infuse their living spaces with a connection to nature. Expect window coverings in hues like warm terracottas, olive greens, subtle blues, and muted grays. These colors evoke feelings of serenity and comfort.
These colors work well with trending interior design styles. That way, homeowners can coordinate their window treatments with the rest of their home's decor.
Pantone Color of the Year
Historically, Pantone's color of the year has impacted interior design trends. For 2024, the chosen color is Peach Fuzz (Pantone 13-1023). This delicate shade, between pink and orange, encapsulates a sense of warmth and coziness. It reflects the homeowner's desire for tranquility and harmony moving forward. The color invokes feelings of tenderness, compassion, and a heartfelt yearning for kindness.
Other prominent paint companies have also announced their chosen color of the year. They align with the other window treatment trends with colors like earthy greens, blues, oranges, and browns.

Embracing a less-is-more philosophy, minimalist window treatments will dominate interior design. Homeowners are leaning towards clean, sleek designs that exude sophistication. Minimalist designs feature streamlined silhouettes, uncluttered styles, and understated yet impactful textures.
Expect an increase in sleek roller shades, sheer curtains with simple lines, and unembellished blinds. These all complement contemporary aesthetics while maximizing natural light.
Minimalism's allure is its ability to create a harmonious and serene ambiance. It fits the modern homeowner's desire for a tranquil, uncluttered living space.
Bold Patterns and Prints
In contrast to the minimalist wave, 2024 window treatment trends will also see vibrant patterns and prints. Homeowners are seeking window coverings that serve as artistic focal points within their spaces. This trend includes geometric designs, oversized florals, and abstract prints that are slated to adorn windows, injecting vivacity and personality into interiors. This trend invites a celebration of individuality and creativity. It sets the stage for homes to become vibrant expressions of personal style and artistic flair.
We partner with several window treatment brands, such as Lafayette Interior Fashions, that offer a broad range of fabric materials, colors, and patterns.
