Window treatments are both practical and aesthetic. They serve as a source of filtering or blocking light, energy efficiency, as well as privacy.
By introducing drapery the window can be enhanced proportionally, as well as adding color, texture and pattern to the space. Will the window treatment be formal or more casual, light and breezy, or playful? What is the view outside the window? How much of that view do we want to see? These questions need to be answered before selections of fabrics and styles.
Drapery can be one element of the window treatment while window shades can be a consideration when light filtering or outside view are in question. The layering of shades and drapery will allow for more light blocking options whether a roman shade, solar roller shade or wood blinds. Bedrooms and media rooms are usually where blackout shades might want to be used.
Valances and draperies can be a great way of adding height to the room. If there is a substantial amount of space from the molding and the ceiling, mounting the drapery closer to the ceiling will add height, proportion and drama.
Draperies can be lined or sheer fabrics may be unlined. The lining is what gives the drapery body and allows it to hang properly. An interlining will also improve the draping and protect the fabric from sun damage.
It is important that window treatments be measured, sewn and designed correctly. Our design team is available to assist with any of your design needs, whether in-home consultation, fabric selection, measurements, design and fabrication.
