Wondering how to dress your windows in 2020? Read on to discover the predicted trends for blinds, curtains and shutters — and start the new year in some serious style.

Natural Materials

A huge trend in interior design for the year ahead is natural materials. This trend taps into our move towards sustainable living and our desire to reduce our waste and increase our use of organic products.

This trend will see us bringing more natural elements into our homes, such as natural colours, nature-inspired patterns and lots of lovely wood.

Real wooden blinds are perfect for the natural materials trend. Ethically sourced from sustainable forests, our solid wood blind collection at Barnes Blinds will transform your windows and doors. Bring the beauty of nature inside your home.

Texture is big for 2020. Textured materials give our homes the natural, organic feel we crave and connect to our desire for more natural living.

Choose to have your window blinds in natural, tangible textures like bamboo or woven-wood shades and add the on-trend textural element to any room.

The fantastic range of fabrics in our Vision Blind collection is made for the texture trend. Available in four colourways, Portofino is a wonderfully tactile material that will give you a stunning contemporary, yet organic feel. Or if you’re looking for a fresh, linen-style fabric with natural weave for your blinds, Lucca would be the ideal choice for your windows.

Natural Tones

The key colours for this year are all taken from nature. From Pantone’s Colour of the Year to Dulux Colour of the Year 2020, the big names in interior design are all telling us that the on-trend hues are from the natural world. So, dress your windows with beautiful, ocean blue blinds or curtains in botanical greens to bring the outside in and be bang on-trend.

Black is also tipped to be a key colour this year. Add black curtains or blinds to a room to make a stylish statement without dominating your décor.


Curtains add a touch of personality and another layer of warmth to your windows. Pairing soft curtains with window blinds or plantation shutters is a top home décor tip for the year ahead. Curtains will help soften your windows and give them a luxurious feel. And choosing natural shades or nature-inspired patterns for your curtains will keep your windows totally on-trend this year.

Curtains are so cool for 2020, so why only have one? A huge, up and coming window dressing trend is to dress your window with two or more curtains. Mix fabrics and patterns and use contrasting colours to create a real sense of drama and decadence to any room.
