Why Window Coverings

As a window covering pro, it drives me crazy to see windows untouched and uncovered. I know all the excuses- I don’t want to cover up the view. I want to keep it clean and simple. They’re too expensive.…  Not a good enough answer for me. Window Dressings play an integral part in completing a room. I often think a big part of leaving windows bare is that designing window treatments is  the most technical and complex process and people don’t know what to do, where to start or how to proceed. That’s where window fashion professionals come in. Before I get into the reasons why you should work with a professional, let’s talk about why you should consider putting {custom} window coverings on your window.

Why Window Coverings? Here are my top reasons for putting some sort of treatment on your windows.

  • Privacy. It goes without saying; no one wants to see their neighbor naked.
  • Energy efficiency.
  • Light control and glare.
  • The dreaded Blackhole. Most people don’t give this a second thought until it’s pointed out. The Blackhole is about looking into a bare window on a cold or rainy night and staring into darkness. The cold black of night seems to permeate the room and throws the room’s energy off. It can be a bit unnerving. A sense of security, or lack of, definitely comes into play.
  • As a finishing touch. It’s the glue that holds all the diverse components in a room together.
  • The view. Think of window treatments as the frame around that fabulous view and design for it; or use treatments to mask a ugly one.
  • Enhance the room’s architecture or camouflage it’s shortcomings.
