The Newest Window Treatment Trends In Minneapolis02/14/2016George Christ 2016 is in full swing. And Minnesotans are ready to redecorate their homes, starting with the windows. Wondering what the newest trends in window treatments are? We have the scoop on the trendiest window treatments in 2016. Reclaimed Wood Shutters We all fell in love with reclaimed wood’s weathered look, from the Science Museum of Minnesota to the Minneapolis Institute of Art. It gives us a sense of calm, takes us back to nature, and connects us with history. And there are numerous ways to use it in your home. 2016 marks the first year you can have reclaimed wood as a window treatment! Sunburst Shutters Minneapolis has brought reclaimed wood shutters to Minneapolis after years of research and development, and in partnership with Stikwood. These superior wood shutters combine the functionality of a plantation shutter with the beauty of the outdoors. And the effect is artwork you can show off on your windows. The curvature of the wooden louvers reflects decades exposed to the elements as part of a fence, barn, or building. The holes, knots, and marks are unique features of reclaimed wood. That’s what makes this window treatment so appealing to homeowners in Minneapolis. And similar to other Sunburst plantation shutters, reclaimed wood shutters are built with functionality in mind, with louvers that can tilted to adjust for view and light. Sliding Barn Doors Barn doors aren’t a new trend in home décor. But barn doors for windows are. [[The look of barn doors on windows is one we adore. And it helps that they’re easy to roll across a window. We have a hunch you’ll love them, too!
