Curtains & Draperies
Having the correct window treatments depend on several factors: the room, the shape of the window and its position to the sun, the style you prefer, and the drapery’s purpose.
Custom window treatments will last for many years and serve multiple purposes — they keep the sun out and the warmth in; they help protect your floors, rugs and furniture from fading; they add pizzazz to any room, “finishing” it off.
They can be practical too. Today’s fabrics offer room darkening options for people who work shifts such as firefighters, police, or medical professionals. Also, many fabrics are stain resistant — the perfect defense against kids and pets!
If you prefer a simple look, you can hang stationary drapery panels at each side of the window, framing it, usually in combination with a blind or shade. Adding embellishments such as fringe or contrasting tape can change the mood of the room from formal to romantic to casual.
In a traditional home you may require more layers of draperies to achieve a sophisticated design. In a hot climate you may want specialist treatments to keep light out.
