Window Treatment Style

In the world of style trends, I’m seeing a lot of drapery panels, roman shades, cornice boards, roller shades, and shutters. The first question you have to ask is, do you want your treatments to be functional or just pretty?

Drapery panels

Drapery panels can be functional or stationary so if you’re looking to add color and softness to your room, stationery is a great option. Ripple fold panels create a more contemporary look while pinch pleated panels are more traditional. Or you can throw the whole rule book out the window and go with a window treatment style that’s less traditional and more fun!

Roman Shades

Roman shades are a great alternative to blinds. They offer light control, privacy, energy efficiency and add a touch of beauty to your home. You can customize colors, fabrics, and even make them motorized.

Cornice Boards

Cornice boards are an upholstered window treatment valance. They can also be customized to your style, and pair very well with your drapery panels and roman shades.

I remember my grandmother had white vinyl roller shades in the bedrooms, and I could never get them to work right. We are way past the days of my grandmother’s roller shades! Now roller shades have hundreds of options of materials and colors. There’s a fabric and style for any home, and they work so much better! The operating methods have come a long way, and you can get them with cords, cordless, or – you guessed it – motorized.
