While it is not always possible to predict sales and trends for the year ahead most home furnishing commentators and interior design consultants enjoy a bit of sport at this time of year doing just that.
We all know that there are always the steady sales in traditional made to measure roller and vertical blind offerings, having looked at all the evidence gathered in the past 6 months, we note that in terms of volume of sales this has remained fairly constant the big change however has been a shift away from traditional white and cream roller and vertical blinds to a whole palette of grey blind fabrics – everything from light mist grey colours to mid greys and indeed dark metal greys. A big seller in 2018 we cannot see why this colour choice will not continue throughout 2019.
Roman Blinds, now an affordable luxury. Changes in production methods and fabric choices could see a big increase in Roman Blind sales according to industry insiders. Long gone are the super high prices for a shabby chic product. Super elegant and stylish are the new watch words for Roman Blinds. Recently adopted chain pull mechanisms mean the old pull on a string method to raise a Roman Blind will soon be a thing of the past.
So what will the big winner be for 2019. Well we are going to stick our neck out a bit here and say 35mm Faux Wood Blinds and Made to Measure Real Wooden Blinds seem to be on such an upward sales curve we can see them taking over from the 50mm options which are currently Britain’s best selling blind option and have been for several years now. We believe Wooden Blinds and in particular 35mm Faux Wood Blinds will be seen throughout every room in the home as the thinner slat looks super stylish. As faux wood is great for bathrooms and kitchen because it is made from strong uPVC and is easy to clean, there is no reason not to use this blind in every other room in your home! So for a super looking blind, look no further that amazing 35mm Faux Wood Blinds this year ……/
