Window Treatments: Dos and Don’ts


Window fashions are to a room like jewelry is to attire. Window treatments are at the root of our company history; we started as a shop-at-home drapery company. Today, window treatments are still an important part of the full-service interior design we provide clients.

When choosing window treatments, it’s important to keep these dos and don’ts in mind:

DO consider the type of window you have

Window Treatments for Uniquely Shaped Windows

Whether it’s an arch, a bow or bay, a corner, a double-hung, French doors, a picture or another type, we can help you select the type of treatment that will work best.

Window Treatments for Bay and Corner Windows

DO remember that window treatments are not just about beauty

While a basic window treatment will cover your bare window, it won’t necessarily address other requirements you may have. Window treatments are not just about beauty but also about privacy, sun protection, sound absorption, and more. We will ask you questions that will help you focus on the features and benefits you desire.

DO consider the wide variety of options for your window treatments

Using Window Treatments to Add Softness and Texture

Draperies can add softness and texture, absorb sound, insulate, be drawn closed or remain open, and more.

Top Window Treatments

Top treatments come in unlimited choices allowing for more creative exploration for the designer and client. Sometimes it takes only a cornice or valance to add pizzazz to a room. There are cool names too, like cascades and jabots.

Soft Shade Window Treatments

Alone or as dramatic accompaniment to other window treatments, shades come in all shapes and configurations. Fabric shades, also known as “soft” shades, are clean-edged and neat and can take a back seat to beautiful architectural details when up and out of the way or add stunning emphasis.

Window Treatment Shutters

Shutters and blinds can fill a variety of roles. They can interface with any interior due to the range of colors, materials, stains, and decorative features.

Combining Window Treatments to Make Impact

When one concept is not enough, DO explore the beauty of combining different types of treatments.

Window Treatment Decorative Hardware and Trim

DON’T forget to consider decorative hardware and trim

These elements customize your treatment and add individuality. The range of materials available is huge and amazing.
