Custom Window Treatments
What Are Custom Window Treatments?
Custom window treatments are coverings for your windows that are custom made and specifically designed to fit your windows. They can be simple or elaborate but in either case, they are not returnable so it is important to get it right the first time. Custom window treatments can include blinds, shades, curtains, valances, swags and can be motorized as well. There are different opacity options to control light and many lining options too. There are hundreds of design styles to choose from and unlimited fabric selections. A designer will have access to higher quality fabrics and materials not available to the public which will help create a more custom one-of-a-kind look.
It is important that you purchase high-quality window treatments as they will increase the value of your home and provide practical benefits as well. Many people underestimate the cost of window treatments and fail to factor this into their design budget. Since they are attached to the home, they are typically sold with the home in a real estate transaction. This is an important long term consideration.
Typically, the more you spend, the better quality and more durable things are, in any category. Keep in mind that if you purchase high quality window treatments, they can last you around 20 years or more. If you want to keep them for the long-term, you should select a timeless style that is always in fashion. If you prefer a trendy look, you will probably want to replace them more often and should consider the cost of doing so.
