Designing With Carol: Make a big design statement with window coverings



Carol Collins, WFCP, Expert

Designers and savvy consumers are turning to window fashions as the No. 1 home improvement and interior design product that can make the biggest difference in their homes. Not only can window fashions transform a room from a design standpoint, they can also create atmosphere by controlling light and privacy as well as noise.

Today the products and design styles available to enhance your windows are endless. From simple and contemporary to dramatic and elegant, custom window coverings are the single most important element to make your house a home. They finish the room by highlighting the all-important window, and they provide a variety of functions that no other home furnishings product can. What other interior design element can affect light control, privacy and energy conservation beautifully and efficiently?

Providing the right solutions for your windows can save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs both in the cold of winter and in the heat of summer, stopping that unwelcome heat transfer. Also, UV protection for custom window treatments protects your valuable dining table, fabrics or your wood floors from sun damage.

Custom window coverings are the final touch to transform the rooms of your home. They are that dramatic accessory that finishes an outfit; the right earrings and shoes with the black dress; the perfect bag and scarf for your appointment. Each custom window fashion is specific to you, allowing you to express yourself and create a look all your own.

Leaving your windows “naked” is a design no-no in most cases; the result is a room that feels cold and unfinished, while a “dressed” window gives a room a warm and finished feeling. Beautiful one-of-a-kind custom draperies and window coverings will add the finishing look to your home.
