Cellular shades are very popular. They’re available with no cords, which is a great feature if you have small kids or pets in the house. It eliminates the danger of accidental strangling. If you choose blinds that have cords, never tie the cords together.
Faux wood blinds are good for areas with high humidity, such as bathrooms. It's almost impossible to tell them from the real thing without scratching them to see if the color goes all the way through.
Woven blinds are a big trend, too. They look like bamboo and they provide texture to the window treatment. They're easy to install and are also available in cordless models.
Plantation shutters can really change the appearance of a room and are a great look for traditional homes. They don't need drapes or additional treatment, but they are the most expensive of the options.
