Reasons to Use
Accent and Beauty - You want your windows to be emphasized.
Soft treatments soften harsh lines while emphasizing and accenting the
architecture of your windows. Or maybe you just need a decorative accent:
a drapery rod with decorative finials can create a beautiful touch. A
valance or cornice can add just the needed touch to enhance and beautify
a plain room.
Economy and Variety - Soft treatments are relatively inexpensive,
so you can rotate them between rooms or even change them seasonally.
Light and Privacy Control - You need to control light and privacy.
Having layers of fabric treatments, or combining a soft treatment with
a mini blind or cellular shade will give you a great deal of light control
and privacy. You'll also want to remember that dark or heavy fabrics might
block out too much light for your indoor garden but could be perfect for
the late morning or afternoon sleeper.
Theme - Soft treatments can also help bring various elements of
a room together by repeating colors or patterns. You can choose fabric
that works with your decorating theme to pull together different design
elements. Traditional, Country, Contemporary, Formal or Casual soft window
treatments are the answer.
Expression - Having the right soft window treatment can change
a dull room into an exciting one. While plain blinds
might make your window practical, dressing them up with soft treatments
helps you express your personal style. A variety of styles and fabrics
let you create just about any mood or style desired, from airy country
to sporty contemporary.
