Draperies and window coverings add an elegant warmness to any room. They set the tone of a room, pulling the color scheme upward. Window treatments can range from lush and lavish past-the-floor-length draperies to clean and minimalistic shades. Draperies can bring cohesiveness to a room’s design and enhance the architecture of a home.
Draperies and shades are more than decorative. They are energy efficient, adding an additional layer of insulation to your open windows as well as light control. They can be used to make windows appear larger, adjusting them to the scale of the room.
Shades are also an option to add charm and function to your home. They can allow sunlight to filter in gently or be drawn up for a brighter effect. Some varieties of shades include Austrian, soft fold Roman, balloon, roller, or the popular flat fold Roman. Shades can be the entire window treatment, or they can enhance draperies and complement the colors.
Whatever style you prefer, even the smallest of details can be personalized and tailored to your individual needs. Drapery lining can be light and airy or blackout lining can keep all traces of sunlight at bay. Drapery rods can be made with multiple finishes and unique finials to enhance the style of your room and accent fabric choices. Valances can be added, or a gilded cornice if the style calls for it. Finishing touches like fringe, tassels, tiebacks, and tieback holders can all be added to complete the look.
