6 Most Popular Window Coverings Trends in Dallas

1. Faux Wood Blinds

Metroplex residents are 8% more likely to choose Faux Wood Blinds than the rest of the country.

This high quality, durable window covering is a great upgrade from builder-basic mini blinds. The PVC or composite material is safe for high moisture spaces like bathrooms where wood could warp, plus it’s more scratch resistant than real wood.

Most Dallas/Fort Worth residential architecture is traditional rather than modern or mid century, so this classic window covering style is a safe bet.

2. Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are the top pick for the rest of the country but take spot #2 for DFW. This clean-lined style is most often seen in modern homes, but is versatile enough to work in any space.

Dallas homeowners love Cellular Shades because the fabric pocket construction traps air against the window to insulate against outside temperatures. As one of the few cities where residents have been known to switch between heat and AC in the same week, shades that insulate against both heat and cold are perfect for DFW.

3. Wood Blinds

As we mentioned with Faux Wood Blinds, traditional style reigns supreme in Dallas. Wood Blinds give you timeless style and quality construction with slats that can be tilted to adjust light.

If you want wood tones to match flooring or furniture, wood blinds are the way to go. Choose from a more formal dark stain, or the scandinavian-inspired whitewash finishes that are trending now.

4. Plantation Shutters

Before air conditioning, Plantation Shutters allowed southern homes to block the sun without stopping cross-breezes that cooled the home. Although they aren’t used for this function anymore, homeowners across the south still love them for their old-world charm.

6. Woven Wood Shades

Even though Fixer Upper central is a few hours south in Waco, farmhouse style is still very popular in DFW. Woven wood shades add some rustic texture and are perfect for modern farmhouse homes.
