Picking the perfect custom window treatments for your home or office should be fun, but with so many options to choose from, it can sometimes be overwhelming. Here are a few helpful tips to consider when picking your perfect window coverings.
1) Purpose. Begin by determining the purpose these window treatments will serve. Do you need to insure privacy or are they just for decoration. Do you need them to cover the entire window or will partial coverage suffice. Maybe you want to keep the heat out or in. And remember to consider the view too!
2) Style. From swags to drapes or shades to sheers, the style of your window treatment depends on many of the factors mentioned above. Swags are often decorative while drapes can keep out the sun. Or you can consider sheers to let the natural light in and shades are nice if you want to raise or lower them as needed.
3) Fabric. Solids or prints, textured or not, the fabric you pick for your custom window treatments are sure to reflect your personal taste and style. Lined for privacy or for climate control or simply decorative to frame a window in style, consider a fabric that will suit the function for each decorative window treatment.
4) Finishing Touches. For added emphasis you may want to consider custom valances or cornices to complete the look. Designed to enhance, these added finishing touches are sure to impress. And, consider the possibilities the addition of tassels or trims will add to the overall look.
