Table runners tend to add a decorative appeal to the overall look of not only your table, but the entire room. It is important in determining the length of the runner to keep one thing in mind, most importantly, there is no right or wrong, its more about what you envision for your space.
For a more traditional look, you will want to measure the Continue reading…
One of the least decorated rooms in your home is often your bathroom. Whether it’s your master bathroom, your guest bathroom or your kid’s bathroom, chances are that you may not have very many decorations in the room.
Your master bathroom is typically only seen by you or your spouse where the other bathrooms in your home are seen more often. We’ve put Continue reading…

We get asked quite often what the standard overhang should be on a table runner. Well our answer to that question is there is no right or wrong. Table runners can be used down the center of a table with no overhang at all. When having your runner on the top of the table with no overhang we suggest having it made about 4”-6” shorter than the actual table top.
If you prefer traditional styling and want an overhang for your table runner there are a couple things to consider. First are you using straight ends or tapered ends? When using tapered ends we would suggest adding 16”-18” to the table top length in order for the tapered ends to completely clear on each side. If you are using straight ends we suggest adding 13-18”. If you are adding a trim to the straight ends of your runner you may want to opt for adding no more than 14” as the trim will add to the overall length as well. There really is no rule of thumb here, it is more a question of personal preference, just keep in mind that a runner (if wanting to overhang) should hang at least 6” on each side or we feel it will look like it was made to fit a smaller table.
Perhaps you’ve already visited all the local home decor stores and can’t seem to find an extra wide shower curtain to fit your tub or shower. This problem is common in baths where the shower or tub is exceptionally wide or long. Standard shower curtains just won’t do for an extra long tub.
For this very reason, many of our customers come to us to order custom, extra wide shower curtains. We custom make our fabric shower curtains in 350 lovely fabrics. Simply choose your width – 50″, 72″, 84″ or 100″ and accent your extra wide shower curtains with decorative nickel grommets instead of buttonholes if you prefer. Need a liner to go with your curtain? No problem, we can make an extra wide shower curtain liners from as well. The liner can be tailored to the same width and length, to give you a fully customized look and feel. These can be used to accent a fancy master bath or a secondary guest bath. You can also enhance your wide shower curtains with matching bath window treatments, bedding, rugs, towels, etc. for a complete bath makeover.
You’ve asked and asked and now were answering! Get custom sized vinyl liners to go with your custom extra long or extra wide sized fabric shower curtain. For so long we have been asked by our customers if they could purchase an extra long or extra wide vinyl shower curtain liner to go with the extra long and extra wide fabric shower curtains we were making for them and until now we have always had to say sorry.
We have decided to make your life less complicated and now offer extra long and extra wide vinyl liners. Custom sized vinyl liners are available in all four standard widths that we offer for our fabric shower curtains: 50”, 72”, 84” and 100”. And they can be made any length up to 96”.

Okay – You want to give your room some character, warmth and depth. Here are some quick inexpensive ways to accomplish your goal.
Layering will add warmth to a room. If a room appears cold and boring adding layers of fabric can turn up the “heat” and give the room some needed textures. For example, add a rug, add cloths to the tops of tables, add custom made decorative throw pillows of different shapes and sizes to that boring couch and add accessories that have texture. Your room will gain instant warmth.
Hint: You can use beautiful placements under lamps. Try placing a smaller square table cloth on your table (on the diagonal) so that the corners are on each side of the table as opposed to the corners of the table – leaving the corners of the table exposed. Or try crisscrossing two table runners for a different effect. If you have a favorite table cloth now, try getting some bold colored fabric napkins to coordinate with your table cloth. If you have curtain panels up now that you love – try adding a valance that compliments the room or add custom length drapery panels to the window that currently has only a valance to spice up the décor you already have!
Texture will add depth to what might otherwise be considered a rather flat fabric or element. Many of today’s fabrics are beautifully accented with texture. A certain amount of texture should be introduced in every décor. It will visually stimulate the eye, and help produce a beautiful room.
Texture can be added with materials that have a “character” of their own such as wood, wicker, tile, marble, glass, fabric and metal. It can be added with decorative embellishments such as tassels, bows, cording, and other decorative trims. You can add warmth with faux painting techniques, wallpaper and window treatments to name a few.
The most important part of decorating is obviously creating an atmosphere that makes you feel good and comfortable. Many times we try to copy a decor we see in a decorating magazine because it looks stylish and later realize that the room wasn’t created so much to be lived in as it was to be looked at. As long as you stick to what appeals to you and colors you enjoy, it’s hard to go wrong.

Color is fun and exciting, but it is contrast, or differences in values that often make the room design successful. Without contrast in value between your walls, furniture and window treatments the colors will blend together and your room will get lost in itself. Don’t be afraid to add some color – contrast in colors will clarify and add depth to your room. If you like neutral colored home decor fabrics for your drapes, no problem, just don’t forget to add that colorful table runner and decorative throw pillows to spice up your room!
