Are Your Window Coverings on Trend for 2023?
Design professionals and homeowners are seeing the following trends for 2023, accoridng to the design and building site Houzz. They include:
- The Return of Colour
- Playful Traditional Style
- Layers of Texture
- Connection to the Outdoors
- Natural Materials
We Want Colour!
Bringing back more colour is one of the most common trends in the Houzz survey. After years of gray and white, it appears our extended time at home made us realize we miss colour! As we have become comfortable in our homes, we've gained confidence to surround ourslevs with our favorite colours, regardless of current trends whether on-trend or not! Go all in with colour, by adding saturated walls in a study or office, or just bring in a pop of colour with accessories like pillows, rugs, and artwork.
Colour can also be added through custom window coverings! Budget Blinds onV ancouver Island can match a paint colour for your blinds or shutters or create a bold custom fabric for drapery, pillows, and Roman shades.
Traditional Becomes Playful
What exactly is Playful Traditional?
The phrase popped up in the recent Houzz survey and in design magazines. Homeowners, especially younger first-time homeowners, are embracing traditional styling with a twist. They are adding their personality to the style with new colours, vibrant wallpaper, and by mixing vintage and modern furniture in rooms with traditional architecture.
Layering shades and draperies is the perfect complement to the playful traditional look. Classic drapes in a fun print or bold updated colour over a textured woven shade is the ideal combination of classic elements in an updated style.
Natural Materials and Organic Style
Natural materials are trending everywhere - from stone countertops and white oak cabinetry to wood floors, handmade tiles, and stone fireplaces, a natural organic feel is on-trend for 2023 and beyond.
Connecting to the Outdoors
Windows are getting more prominent, and large glass doors are often featured elements of home remodels or new builds. On Vancouver Island, our love of the outdoors, combined with the natural benefits of sunlight, has homeowners seeking a natrual connection and ways to bring the outdoors in.
While big panes of glass us the best views and abundant natural light, also create a window covering challenge. Seek advice from a trusted window covering designer at Budget Blinds. Budget Blinds has the perfect options to filter light and give you a layer of privacy when needed no matter what size your windows are.
2023 is About Personalization
Regardless of trends, homeowners will reflect their personalities and preferred colour choices in their homes.
Budget Blinds understands personalization; it is what they offer daily to homeowners across Vancouver Island. Visit their website to schedule a complimentary consultation with your local Budget Blinds design consultant and find the perfect window treatment to fit your home's personality.

Calm or Colourful? 2023 Colours of The Year Offer Options
Bold or Subtle? The choice is yours, with this year’s leading paint producers announcing their colours of the year. And as always, once you’ve made your choice, your local Vancouver Island Budget Blinds stores are ready to help you incorporate your colours into your home!
The colours and messaging behind the selections this year from Sherwin Willams and Benjamin Moore offer striking differences. Sherwin Williams selected Redend Point, a subtle neutral that will appeal to a minimalist design aesthetic. On the other hand, Benjamin More chose the bold, bright, “look at me” colour of Raspberry Blush, sure to appeal to those not afraid to use colour.
"Redend Point is a heartening hue that invites compassion and connection into any space," said Sue Wadden, Director of Color Marketing at Sherwin-Williams when annoucing the colour selection. "The colour is a natural choice for those looking for a warm and joyful neutral in both interiors and exteriors. Build on its earthiness by utilizing the hue alongside natural-looking textiles and wood accents—or create a desert oasis by layering shades of terra-cotta and clay materials.”
Budget Blinds Inspired Shades Collection features woven shades with refined textures and natural fibers that perfectly complement Resend Point. Add white or natural linen sheer drapery panels to complete the look.
Unlike the subtle choice by Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore's pick for the 2023’s Colour of the Year is the vibrant Raspberry Blush. The saturated shade energizes a room for a bright, charismatic look that's anything but subtle!
After years of neutrals and grays, “People are ready to bring colour back into the home, taking a step outside their colour comfort zones,” said Andrea Magno, Color Marketing and Development Director at Benjamin Moore. “Raspberry Blush empowers the use of statement colors that deliver delight and personality while transforming rooms for incredible results."
Are you ready for raspberry walls and ceilings? For the maximalist, envelope a room in Raspberry Blush from the walls to the trim and the ceiling to wrap a room in an optimistic boldness. If that’s too bold of an option for you, make a smaller impact statement on a kitchen island or add a pop of Raspberry Blush in pillows or accent decor. Soft shades of gray, white, and beige balance the bright hue.
Or mix it with colours from the rest of Benjamin Moore’s 2023 palette, which includes a range of saturated tones varying from a deep blue to a sultry green to more rich chocolate and cinnamon hues. For Magno, all of these share one unifying commonality: “They’re all happy. And we all need a bit of that right now.”
Your home is a place to express your personality and feature the colours and décor you love. It should be your happy place! That is why Budget Blinds offers a range of products. From soothing neutrals and minimalist modern roller shades to rich fabrics in bold colours for drapes.
Plus, did you know they can create a one-of-a-kind custom fabric to match any colour? Budget Blinds’ exclusive DesignINK program allows your local Budget Blinds to create a fabric to match any paint colour you like. Schedule a complimentary in-home consultation with your local Budget Blinds today to learn more.

Cooler weather will be here before we know it. Now is the time to prep your home to avoid sky-high heating bills this winter.

Look to Budget Blinds for a number of great solutions that will look great, and save you money year-round.
Modern options include:
- Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, combine the soft look and energy efficiency of window shades with the functionality of horizontal blinds.
- Layering your curtains or drapery with light filtering or room darkening liners to control light gaps and improve insulation retention.
- Traditional wood shutters use an insulating design that helps make indoor spaces cooler in summer and warmer in winter, keeping your room at an ideal temperature.
- Window film deflects up to 99% of damaging UV rays, reducing heat gain and protecting your furniture against harmful UV damage.
- Floor-to-ceiling drapes that fold back against the wall. This allows the drapes to seal off the window, preventing drafts and loss of heat through convection.

3 Signs It's Time to Replace Those Worn Out Window Coverings
Is it time to update your blinds? If it’s not just about aesthetics, consider these other signs it might be time for new window coverings:
1. Warped, Bent or Broken Slats
Faux wood blinds will bend when exposed to high heat for long periods, while wooden blinds warp when exposed to moisture. Aluminum blinds also dent when you apply heavy pressure. The damage is not only unpleasant to look at, it can cause difficulty during operation.
Solar/roller shades might be a great replacement choice for those windows that get a lot of sun. Choose from a range of opacities to filter light, heat, and harmful UV rays.
And while aluminum blinds can be a cost efficient choice in offices or commercial settings, honeycomb or cellular cordless shades or roller shades are an excellent upgrade for your home. They're child-friendly, available in light-filtering to room-darkening, and are flexible, very durable, and easy to clean.
2. The Window Treatments Are Difficult to Open
Do you struggle to open your blinds and shades or draw your curtains? If so, it means that your opening mechanisms are damaged or are simply worn out and need to be replaced. For corded blinds, the damage may also be tangling or broken cords. For non-motorized curtains and drapes, opening and closing may be restricted due to jammed curtain tracks. The carriers in the track could be off or the cord control is simply worn out and frayed, making the curtains even harder to operate.
Frayed cords are also difficult to operate. A new set of blinds helps you eliminate operation issues and the frustration of not being able to raise or lower your blinds. You may also experience problems with old, motorized blinds, or shades. Automation has improved greatly, with new motorization options from rechargeable to smart home apps. Replace outdated technology and enjoy opening and closing your window treatments with the push of a button on your smartphone.
3. Discolored Slats and Fabrics
Over years of use and exposure to weather elements, the slats on your blinds and wood shutters lose their color and begin to yellow. UV rays from the sun discolor the material, making your blinds and shutters appear faded and outdated.
New window treatments are pleasing to the eye, especially if you're looking to upgrade your home for sale. Homebuyers are more willing to give your house a chance if the window treatments are as new as the freshly painted walls in the rest of the house.
Where Should You Start?
Do you need new window treatments but don't know where to start? Budget Blinds of Vancuver Island has the solution for you. Schedule a free consultation with us to receive expert guidance on window treatments for a fresh look or sale upgrade.

Keep Cool This Summer - And Warm Next Winter - With Help From Budget Blinds
Big bright windows are a fabulous feature in any home, but have you considered how they affect your home’s heating and cooling?
As much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through the windows, costing you extra money and making it difficult to regulate home temperatures. Many experts agree that an average house featuring 15 windows outfitted with energy efficient window coverings can achieve an annual energy savings of approximately $150. Remember, “it’s the little things” such as energy efficient window treatments, that make a difference in helping to conserve energy.
So rather than cranking up your heat or air conditioning to avoid uncomfortable temperatures inside your home, look to Budget Blinds for a number of great solutions. Choose from an array of versatile blinds, shades, shutters, and window film that are practical, energy efficient, and stylish.
Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, combine the soft look and energy efficiency of window shades with the functionality of horizontal blinds.
Layering your curtains or drapery with light filtering or room darkening liners helps control light gaps and improve insulation retention.
Traditional wood shutters use an insulating design that helps make indoor spaces cooler in summer and warmer in winter, keeping your room at an ideal temperature.
Window film deflects up to 99% of damaging UV rays, reducing heat gain and protecting your furniture against harmful UV damage.
To maximize energy efficiency, consider our floor-to-ceiling drapes that fold back against the wall. This allows the drapes to seal off the window, preventing drafts and loss of heat through convection.

Put Safety First With Cordless Options From Budget Blinds
When it comes to making the safest choice in window coverings for any home with children or pets, why take chances? Fortunately, with Budget Blinds of Vancouver Island, you don’t have to.
From cordless child-safe blinds and cordless shades with retractable lifts, to motorized options, Budget Blinds has an array of safe window coverings to minimize the risk of accidents or injury.

The result of this safety-first approach to window coverings means you can have peace of mind knowing your children and pets are in a safer environment.
With new Health Canada regulation coming into effect to protect children from window coverings cords, Budget Blinds is also enacting some changes to their product lines.
Starting in April 2022, Budget Blinds will only be selling cordless, child-safe or motorized window coverings. Products like Top Down Bottom Up Cellular Shades will be discontinued as they have exposed cords.
Over the last three decades, Health Canada has worked to reduce the risks posed by corded window coverings.
To help eliminate this hazard, Health Canada has published the new Corded Window Coverings Regulations to restrict the length of cords and the size of loops allowed on window coverings sold in Canada, to avoid the possibility of their getting wrapped around a child's neck. The new regulations go further to protect children from this hazard than those of any other country. The requirements for window coverings will apply to all products sold in Canada, both custom-made and off-the-shelf.
If you’re looking for safe options for children's rooms or playrooms, Budget Blinds has a huge selection of shutters, window film and motorization options that allevaiet concerns over safety, as well as address the need for night filtration and privacy.

How to Choose: Blackout Blinds vs Light Filtering
Start with the question “Do you want any light in your room?” If you want the light, but need the glare and harmful UV rays filtered out, and a little privacy, Bludget Blinds can offer plenty of better options than a blackout shade.
On the other hand, if you need to sleep during the day or have a toddler that needs to take a daily nap, then a blackout shade or blackout curtain would likely be your best choice.
With other window coverings stores, you may be presented with just two options: a standard lined shade or blackout shades. But Budget Blinds has an array of products with different opacity levels.
What is Opacity?
Opacity is the amount of light that passes through a shade or other window treatment. Opacity varies from sheer to blackout. The opacity changes the look of a window treatment, and the amount of light control and privacy it provides.
Options That Filter Light and Provide Privacy
If you like light but need privacy consider translucent roller shade fabrics that let a glow of light in but provide a level of privacy. Or woven shades with a light weight liner that allow light to filter through, but no one to see in your windows. This option also allows for the wonderful texture of the woven shade to be enhanced and not completely washed out by the harsh sunlight streaming through an unlined shade. Or consider the ever-versatile cellular shade with a range of fabric opacities and options like top-down/bottom up.
This is another reason to call your local Budget Blinds of Vancouver Island design consultant who will bring the samples to your home and show you how each fabric works with the light coming through your windows.
Do Blackout Shades Have to Be a Dark Colour?
Your blackout shades do not have to be black! In fact, they do not even have to be a dark colour. The “blackout” effect of the shade is not determined by the colour of the shade but the backing layer in the material.
You can have a light-coloured woven shade, or fabric Roman Shade, lined with a blackout liner. The blackout liners come in shades of white, beige and greys, great for condos. You can also choose a lighter colour for a roller shade - as long as it has the blackout backing, it will do the job of darkening your room.
Where Should Blackout Shades Be Mounted?
There is a lot that goes into determining how to best mount a shade. This is where the assistance of your Budget Blinds of Vancouver Island consultant helps you save time, money, and frustration! Their knowledge of how each product is made and how it fits will help you receive the right product with the right functionality for the job. Whether it is blocking light, filtering light, providing privacy or both.
What about Blackout Curtains?
Like shades, custom blackout curtains are offer light blocking thanks to the lining and not the face fabric. So you can use a lighter weight fabric combined with a blackout lining to get all the light control and privacy you need.
As you can see there are a lot of things to consider when selecting the right window treatments! Budget Blinds is here to help. Your locally-owned stores bring years of experience, and a variety of samples directly to you. Budget Blinds will assist you in finding the right product that fits your style, your needs, and your budget.
