We’re in the final days of December, and as the year winds down, it’s time to look ahead to 2023. Here at Appeal, we’re already thinking about blind and shutter trends. The Christmas tree is still up, and we’re a long way from polishing off the last of the turkey, but here are our predictions for the coming year.
We’ve noticed a gradually-increasing interest in Plantation Shutters this past year, and we expect it to continue in 2023. Plantation shutters have been used for centuries and have a certain timeless quality. Our customers love their understated elegance, and they add a touch of distinction to all types of homes. Ever since we started offering water-resistant plantation shutters, we’ve had more people asking about their use in bathrooms. We’re confident that plantation shutters will be a fashionable choice in 2023.
One of our big predictions for 2023 is an increased industry focus on energy saving. This has always been a primary goal for the industry, but it’s become even more important in the last twelve months. The cost of living crisis has hit us all, and we’ve had multiple queries about how blinds can help reduce heating bills. We’re expecting designers and manufacturers to become laser-focused on energy efficiency for the next twelve months.
Roller blinds have never really fallen out of style, but there’s been increased interest in them these last few months. Their sleek looks and practicality have always won people over, and they’ve got a subtle, classic feel. Our remote-controlled roller blinds combine traditional looks with modern technology, and we expect they’ll only be more popular in the New Year.
Automated Window Blinds
Our final prediction is that automated window blinds will be trending this year. Technology has now reached a point where we can control windows blinds through smartphones, tablets and voice activation software. Homeowners want the future today, and our integrated systems can bring even the most retro-style blinds into the twenty-first century.
We could be completely wrong about all of these, but we’re confident in our predictions. 2023 will see plantation shutters and roller blinds becoming the fashionable shading choices for homeowners, while automation and energy efficiency will be the industry’s hot topics. We’ll be revisiting this article next December and seeing just how accurate we were.
