Design 101: Window Treatment Edition

Gorgeous custom window treatments shouldn’t be reserved for professional designers and celebrities. Everyone deserves a beautiful home, and we’re here to help you create the perfect designer window treatments for your space.

Custom Window Treatments Are a Wise Investment

Custom window treatments will always have a superior look and performance vs. mass-produced blinds and shades. Why? It’s because you’re selecting from better materials and thousands of options and receiving exceptional service. You can have the precise style, material, and color of your choosing. There are no compromises with designer window treatments.

Choose Your Style

Is your home décor contemporary or mid-century modern? Perhaps your decor gives off a classic, traditional vibe. Your window treatments should blend well with the rest of your home. Wood blinds and shutters give character and charm to traditional interiors, while roller shades and aluminum blinds look fantastic in modern, contemporary settings.

Hunter Douglas Wood Blinds

Create a Cohesive Design

With so many options, you may feel tempted to hang unique designer window treatments in every room. Creating a cohesive design with your window coverings is better for your home aesthetic. You can choose to use the same style shade in every room and switch up the opacity and color. Another option is to use different hues of the same color across your window treatments.

Patterned Window Treatments

High-end window treatments must be solid colors and use luxe fabrics, right? Solid shades aren’t the only way to go to achieve a high-end design. Patterns in your window treatments can elevate the look by adding depth and visual interest. If you’re not sold on patterns, try layering solid color drapery over a printed roller or Roman shade or opting for unique textures like woven shades or cellular shades.

Versatile Roller Shades

If you’re having trouble choosing shades, it helps to know that some window coverings look at home in any space and decor. Designer Roller Shades are one of these adaptable shades. Roller shades are sleek and work well independently in a minimalist interior or layered with drapery for a fuller, more dramatic appearance. Add an independently operating opaque liner or choose the dual roller design for maximum light control and privacy. Designer Roller Shades are available
in hundreds of colors and materials and are compatible with PowerView® Automation.

Hunter Douglas Drapery

Hang Drapery Properly

Even the most alluring drapery will not look its best if it’s not hung correctly. If you install drapery right above the window, it will make the room look smaller. Instead, hang them just below the ceiling to give the illusion of height and oversized windows. Extending the drapery several inches to the side of the frame provides luxurious fullness and enhances your view.
