The Best Window Treatment Trends of 2022

Sep 07, 2022

As with everything in the world of interior design, the popular styles within window treatments ebb and flow. Whether you’re wondering if your shades are outdated or are shopping for new ones, seeing current styles is always interesting. Below are some current trends we are loving and expect to see more of in 2022 – some of which are new, and others that have been around and are very worthy of staying on the scene.


Bold colors and patterns are definitely having their moment in interior décor. Fabrics with eye-catching patterns and colors can transform otherwise simple fabric shades, roller shades, Roman shades, and draperies into a unique visual centerpiece.

The Shade Shop manufactures custom Roman shades and draperies in its Houston workroom using any fabric of your choosing – whether from the extensive selection in our showroom or any other fabric you may like – giving you endless possibilities to incorporate pattern and color into your window coverings.

One of our personal favorite patterns currently trending? The beautiful black gingham Hartmann & Forbes fabric shade (pictured above), designed by Max Humphrey.


On the flip side of the coin, minimalist décor continues to be very popular as well, especially when there is another focal point you want the eye to be drawn to instead – whether an amazing view or a unique art piece.

There are several options when it comes to minimalist window treatments, but by far the most popular are clean and simple roller shades (pictured above in this installation we did for Houston designer, Anne Breux), solar shades, or sheer draperies.


Design-savvy people are increasingly bringing the outdoors in with shades made of sustainably sourced, natural materials (think: rattan, grass, or bamboo shades) or simply by choosing neutral, earth-inspired color palettes.

Woven wood shades are the simplest (and arguably most beautiful) way of incorporating nature into your interior design.  The Shade Shop has an extensive offering of woven shades handwoven to size and made of jute, bamboo, seagrass, and other organic elements.

Pictured above is a gorgeous ProDesign Camden Natural woven shade that The Shade Shop installed for the talented Lauren Ramirez of HouseMill Design.

Client Testimonials

Larry and his team at The Shade Shop are one of my best vendors in Houston. I would highly recommend them!

Meg Lonergan Interiors

As architects, we thoroughly enjoy working with the Shade Shop. Larry and his team are so skilled and knowledgeable with all things solar. From roller shades, draperies, exterior shading, shutters, you name it!

Dillon Kyle Architects

We are extremely pleased with the window treatments that were made & installed by the Shade Shop. We did soft, timeless Roman shades and curtains, which are the quality you'd expect in a high-end hotel. Everyone on the staff was responsive and professional, and the quality of both the products and installation was top-notch.

Nathan Hoot

Moving to Houston and into a renovated house, I had a major blind/shutter job on my hands. There are so many companies out there and my goal was to balance quality, aesthetics, and price. I assumed a local shop wouldn’t be competitive with a major chain, but I was (happily!) very wrong. I found exactly the look and quality I wanted, for a reasonable price, and with unbelievable service. Nothing beats being able to take your time to review options, try out swatches at home, and then feel like you’re getting personalized care through the ordering and installation process. I highly recommend that you go straight to the Shade Shop!

Highly recommended! The entire process was flawless. Everyone was easy to work with, great products, great installers, and great customer service. There's no other place to go for window treatments. We love our motorized shades. They are beautiful to look at and they work perfectly.

Brian Davis

We purchased the motorized roll-up shades for our outdoor patio area. Love, love, LOVE them! We also purchased fantastic quality plantation shutters for our windows. What can I say? I love them as well. VERY HAPPY with both purchases. I would highly recommend "The Shade Shop, Inc." In fact, I just recommended them to our daughter!
