2017 Home Decor Trends

 Permanent link

We love being in the know! The latest styles and trends are what we live for. Budget Blinds Regina has a team full of home decor lovers. We love to share our knowledge with all of our clients and hopefully be able to learn a thing or two ourselves!

Decorator’s Picks

Our Style Consultants have been following some of the latest trends for this year and we wanted to share with you some ideas that we love!

Geometric Yellow Customize-able Roller Shade

 

The above photo is showing off one of Bece’s roller shades. They are customizable in so many ways. Select a double stitched hem; add a double stitch line just above the hem to add a subtle accent to your roller shade. They have 35 colors to choose from! Or select a wooden bottom bar; add sophistication with one of 16 beautiful wooden bottom bars. Unique from Bece are shades of distressed beachy colors to bold geometric and fun prints. 


Mixing Patterns

2017 is a big year for mixing patterns. It can be done quite easily when we consider how many different places there are to add pattern. Patterned bedding with multi patterned pillows? Yes! Bold patterned accents, chairs and window shades in the dining room? For sure!


Fun Flamingo Roller Shade

 

Navy is the New Black

We are especially excited about this trend. Navy and deeper blues are so rich and versatile. Navy is a great neutral because it can be easily paired with other bright colours, browns or whites. Navy and grey is such a beautiful combo too! We would love to see more light grey and white schemes with pops of navy! Talk about classy and beautiful. 

 

 Royal Blue and Navy accents

 

 Bright Colours.

Don’t be shy – we know we aren’t the only ones who like the bright greens that are popping up everywhere. It’s true that what we see on the fashion runway for style is what will filter through into the home decor world. We have been seeing more bright hues lately and we know they will continue to be a popular pick for home fashions.

Budget Blinds on the Property Brothers at Home

Property Brothers Home In Vegas

If you’re a fan of the Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott, you probably know they have completed an overhaul renovation of a Mediterranean style 5,400 sq. ft. home in Las Vegas, U.S.A and turned it into a virtual oasis in the middle of the desert. They love Las Vegas and wanted a Vegas vibe for their family destination home. They wanted a place where friends and family can gather and be together with “anything anybody might want” all in one place.

For years Jonathan and Drew have helped as hundreds of families live through renovations and find their dream homes with their three popular HGTV home improvement shows; Property BrothersBuying and Selling and Brother vs. Brother. On The Property Brothers at Home they are their own clients and that definitely has made for some interesting viewing! Just like everyone else, they have not been spared the squabbles over design elements, sticker shock of surprise costs and project time delays that cause stress and frustration as they raced to finish before their big Scott Family Reunion in November.

Already affiliated through Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers by supplying window treatments for the show’s renovated homes, Budget Blinds® and its sister company, Tailored Living®, came onboard to provide innovative window coverings, custom closet organization systemsgarage cabinets and garage flooring.

A Really Extensive Renovation
The Scott Brothers turned what they described as an “outdated décor, empty and blank [house] with a barren backyard” into a dream spa like retreat. A primary focus was the outdoor living space since Jonathan confessed, “My favorite spaces to do are outdoor living spaces and this has every component I could want in my yard.” The backyard became an extension of both the main house and the guest house, unified in an over-the-top, luxurious resort area with a strong focus on play:

  • Salt water infinity pool with built-in seating areas and rocking lounge chairs
  • Hot tub to comfortably entertain 10 people
  • Pool house with a full outdoor kitchen and swim-up bar
  • Fire pit and top-of-the-line barbeque that can cook 35 steaks at a time
  • 15’ drop-down movie screen that’s wind and earthquake proof for outdoor movies
  • Giant commercial-grade Splashtacular water slide, 91.66’ long and 15’ high
  • Putting green (requiring total redesign by Drew)
  • Tiled basketball court with imbedded quote: “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”
  • Outside dining area and see-through fireplace
  • Lavish doggie park for Gracie and Stewie (Jonathan’s dogs) with synthetic turf, (real) palm trees, and lounge chairs—relaxing for pets and people alike
  • Game room loft in the main house with custom-made, vintage-style pool table and video arcade games

The Breath-Taking Guest House
The main house is shared living space for the brothers, so they built a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house in the backyard for their parents to escape the cold Canadian winters where they live. Jonathan and Drew took great pains to give it special touches. They made sure to give their mom a spa-style master bath and open-concept kitchen and handy laundry facilities and loads of storage space.

For their dad, Drew made a replica of a coffee table he and Jonathan played on as kids. The original had been made by their dad and had ranch brands burned into the top. They hunted down branding irons of the ranches he’d worked in the past and burned them into the new table. (The table was a big hit and mom cried happy tears when they toured the guest house.)

Travis Ogburn, franchise owner of Budget Blinds serving Las Vegas installing roman shades in the guest bedroom just before the parents arrive

Travis Ogburn is the owner of Budget Blinds serving Las Vegas and he concentrated on making the guest house the comfortable haven like Jonathan and Drew wanted it to be for their parents. Roman shades were donated by Horizons Window Fashions they are a long time manufacturing partner of Budget Blinds. They were the perfect window treatment to control sunlight and offer privacy while enhancing the ranch-style rustic, charming and simple style that the parents like. Jonathan said, “The roman shades look killer!”

  • In the living room, knife pleat roman shades in a neutral tone layered with patterned floor-to-ceiling drapes were the ideal backdrop for the overstuffed sofa and chairs, creating a “quiet, comfortable elegance with a warm blend of fabrics to make the room cozy.”
  • The master bedroom and guest bedroom received knife pleat roman shades in room-coordinating colors so each room’s décor was uniquely refined.

Roman shades combine classic form with contemporary function:

  • Many styles to choose from including relaxed folds, balloon shades, hobbled, classic pleated, and cascading fold.
  • They come in a variety of elegant and modern fabrics and colors
  • Light-filtering and room-darkening lining options to suit your needs
  • Shades provide energy efficient insulation
  • Shades can be cordless or automated making them extremely safe for pets and children

Even if you’re not doing a major renovation, you can reinvent your space with new window treatments to make a dramatic improvement to your home’s interior.

Get Fresh for Spring

Get fresh for spring 2017 budget blinds regina

 

Spring is the perfect time to add something fresh to your home.

Simple updates can bring a new look without having to change your furniture or flooring. We love ideas that add style and beauty to your home. Your window coverings are a great place to start! Let’s talk about some seriously practical ways that you can update your home with minimal hassle.

Drapery and Cornices:

Do you love your current window shades? Great! Drapery and cornices are the perfect way to add more style to your current window coverings. Drapery makes rooms and windows feel larger. When you add drapery panels to a window it can visually create the illusion that the window is larger because you cannot see where the sides of the window meets the wall. This also helps makes the window and the room feel more finished and put together.

Cornices are an option for a window with or without drapery. Cornices are wonderful for windows that don’t have space for drapery. Cornices can also continue to help make a window feel larger and help hide the working part of your window shade. Cornices come in a huge array of styles and of course can come in your choice of fabrics. Cornices look amazing when you add nail heads to them!

Roman Shades:

 Another great way to add a fresh update to your home is by adding a roman shade. Roman shades are so fun to add to your kitchen window, laundry room, or bathroom. We are sure that they are many interior designer’s favourite choice for a way to add pattern or colour to a single feature window. They can be a great addition to your living room to help create a cozy and modern space that is so welcoming and beautiful.

Spring Cleaning Tips

 Permanent link

Nothing says spring like a clean home. While it may not be a fun job to check off the to-do list it is always worth it. We’re here with a few tips and tricks to help make this year’s spring cleaning a little easier!

 

 Spring Cleaning with Budget Blinds Regina

 

Cellular Shades:

If they are looking a little dusty grab your vacuum. Use a clean and soft brush end on the vacuum hose to softly suck up any dust.

Another option is to use a clean rag and very diluted dish soap to wet the rag and spot clean your cellular shade. If you find that the integrity of the fabric has changed at all while doing this then simply raise the shade to the completely open position (so that the blind is tightly pushed together at the top headrail) and leave it there for 2-3 hours. This will help the shade regain its perfect shape.

Horizontal Blinds:

Our route less wood blinds and faux wood blinds are incredibly easy to clean. Gently pull out one slat at a time and give them a dusting with a Swiffer duster or Dry Swiffer floor sheet. For stuck on dust use a clean wet cloth, well wrung out, and wipe each slat. Carefully replace each one ensuring that the notches are towards the back so that it will settle back into place.

If you ever decide to use Pledge on your wood blinds make sure to spray it onto a clean cloth NOT directly onto the blind. To help prevent dust you can also lightly wipe your blinds with a new dryer sheet.
