- Blinds made out of all sorts of new materials. The traditional blinds were made from plastic, and for decades and decades, plastic blinds were the option which homeowners had if they wanted to have blinds in their homes. Blinds make for one of the most versatile and practical window covering because they can be closed all the way to stop any light from entering a room, they can be opened just a touch, providing privacy but with the extra light you might want in a room, and of course they can be opened all the way and let a window sit fully exposed on a beautiful, sunny day. Some people however didn’t ever bother with blinds because they didn’t care for a plastic window covering. Plastic can seem a little tacky in some living areas. Around fifteen years ago, the world of window treatments started to see a huge expansion in the different materials that blinds were made from. The first big change was for window blinds to be made of wood. Wood was used more for the practical reasons (wood doesn’t heat up, and does a good job of deflecting sunlight) yet the window coverings designers soon found that people were buying the wooden window coverings much more for their aesthetic beauty, and much less for the practical uses. Soon, window covering dealers were concentrating a good deal of their efforts to producing higher end blinds, made from many different materials. Wood blinds were just the start, soon there were blinds made from glass, tile, soft, fabric material; you name it and soon it was in production. Today, you can go online to donsdrapeeryservice.com and see all the many types of blinds that are being offered. The trend may have started a long time ago, yet it has not slowed down, and even today there are new kinds of blinds hitting the market all the time.

- Shades made from reused materials are becoming very popular in some circles. The whole push for a green friendly home has driven some window coverings makers to start to produce window coverings made from second hand materials, among them, one of the most popular items today are window shades made from second hand fabrics. Second hand shades can be very inexpensive and look surprisingly great, so the chances are their popularity has not yet even reached full potential.
