There’s no better time than now to think about ways to refresh your home this year. Here at Perfect Fit Window Fashions serving the Ft. Myers area, we can help you with all your home interior needs. So what’s hot in 2014? Here are just a few home fashion trends we’re keeping an eye on for 2014.
Heavy drapes are a thing of the past. The look now is for more translucent window treatments that provide privacy but generously bring in natural light. Sheer shades or modern draperies add a delicate touch to your windows. Sheers are a very stylish and highly functional option for sliding glass doors, french doors, and large windows. Narrow sidelights and accent windows are easily covered with sheer shades.
Patterned Prints for Drapery and Fabric
Overuse of patterns such as the popular Ikat can lead to them falling out of style. In 2014, design industry experts predict that we’ll see a resurgence of some patterns that have all but disappeared, but in a different way. More subtle use of patterns such as chevron, stripes, Ikat and zig-zags on accessories, top treatments, throws, pillows and rugs will be in many homes this year. These fun patterns are a great way to bring a color into a room or enhance a design theme. Be creative, but keep it in check.
The use of natural, earthy elements are making a big comeback. Textured wallpaper, as well as the natural textures of wood, are popular for use in any room design. Woven Woods shades also bring nice natural textures into your room.Complement textures with natural design elements such as plants, reclaimed wood, woven window treatments, a basket of seashells or smooth found rocks.
Energy efficiency is on a lot of New Year’s lists this year. Not only does an energy-saving mindset help protect the planet, it can help protect your family budget, too. Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 40% of the air inside a home can escape through its windows. Duette® Architella™, offers the industry’s highest energy-efficiency rating.

Less is More in Interior Design
The trend in our lives to de-clutter and simplify has made its way into home design. Minimalism is in, bringing with it clean, inviting, and relaxing spaces. Get rid of your extra stuff, organize what you keep in designed bins, crates and boxes to create an open and uncluttered atmosphere. Sleek window treatments, soft pillows, interesting shapes, fresh flowers, and earthy forms are easy touches to make your home ready for 2014.
