(NAPSI)—An increasing number of Americans are taking a shine to the look of metal for their home furnishings.

Here’s why: According to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data, most millennials (adults ages 18 to 32) are still not setting out on their own. Only about 34 percent head up their own households. When today’s young people finally do settle down, they want a home that glows. Helping them get there in an affordable way is the “mixing metallic” trend recently identified by House Beautiful magazine.

For example, a striking new revamped line of aluminum blinds from Hunter Douglas reflects today’s current, on-trend styles and unique textures and patterns.

Green And Gold

Aside from its elegance, this collection, Modern Precious Metals®, is constructed from 95 percent recycled aluminum, making it environmentally friendly. It also achieved GREENGUARD Gold certification, meaning it has met their strict standards for indoor air quality.

Design Options

Reflecting style, confidence and a mark of originality, these metal blinds can enhance any room’s decor. There are a multitude of colors and new finishes to suit rooms ranging from urban to rustic to transitional to elegant. They’re built to be sturdy yet lightweight for easy lifting, and they have slats that feature a spring-tempered alloy for added resiliency.

The new finishes include Icon™, a crackled finish with an elegantly defined luster, and Marble, which has neutral colors and a distinctive pattern reflecting the depth and beauty of real marble. They join the sophisticated, understated classic Matte finish; the shimmery Metallic; Brushed, warm neutrals with a brushed effect; the soft, elegant beauty of Pearlescent; and Riverstone™, earthy and natural with a subdued stone texture.
