Privacy, light control, insulation and aesthetics are the main points to consider when choosing a new custom window treatment. Of course a bathroom or bedroom needs more privacy than the kitchen or living room. As for light control, your home’s positioning and landscaping are the determining factors. A home surrounded by huge trees will generally be darker throughout. The southern exposure allows for sunlight most of the day and will probably need light control to protect furnishings and to control heat and glare. A historic older home may need window treatments with a high R value to insulate in both summer and winter. We carry the complete line of Hunter Douglas products and many of these are great for any of these issues. Aside from the practical decisions, the window dressing should look great and reflect your room’s décor and your preferences. The trend in more recent years has become simpler, with less layering. Of course there are exceptions; a period mansion will still look best in layers of opulence. However, for many other homes stationary side panels on interesting rods have been especially popular, as are creative top treatments. Our array of wonderful fabrics and trims are almost endless.
