Window Fashions - More Than Just Shades
07/01/2005 - You may not have heard, but the Buzz among designers in the know is that window coverings are more a focal point than ever before.
As reflected in new construction and remodels, there are more prominent windows in homes today. Specialty shapes are increasingly the norm giving the home that special exterior look. Custom window coverings are great because they can fit the curve of an arch, a rake of a trapezoid or the many angles of an octagon, adding softness without disrupting the lines of the window.
Window coverings if applied correctly impact the comfort of a room more than furniture. Not only do they add fashion they provide comfort because they keep out the heat, cold and glare. And with new shade technology and innovations in fabric a homeowner can have the function of a shade with the beauty and softness of fabric. For those who favor the traditional Venetian blind look, 2" horizontal "basswood" shades are as popular as ever because of the many new features and options now available which enhance the look and function of the shade. The consumer can even get a 2" horizontal fabric slat that looks and works like a Venetian blind but with the softness of fabric giving the room a warm feel.
If you're thinking, "I already have my shades" you're a great candidate for soft treatments. This is a simple and beautiful way to add color and style to any room of your home. Be it a valance, scarf or side accent panel, fabric treatments are the hot trend in home décor and with the quality fabric available today they are a can't miss.
