CHAPTER 8: WINDOW TREATMENTS BY PRICE Inexpensive Window Treatment Ideas Window treatments don’t need to leave your pockets empty with no change for your morning latte. Lots of inexpensive choices can perk up any room with a little knowledge and ingenuity. Mini blinds are a popular and reasonably priced option. Mini blinds are easy to install and are available in endless colors and textures and are often the first choice for many of us who want a “no nonsense “ window treatment, simple, plain and goes with everything. Vertical blinds are another economical choice, but offer a bit more variety. For a traditional, clean look, roller shades fit the bill. They are usually made from vinyl or polyester fabric, come in various patterns and colors. I call these, “rollers”, as they are simple window treatment and you don’t have to be “rolling in money” to afford them. If you are looking for a more modern look for your home, try cellular shades. For those with a do-it-yourself attitude, get your sewing machine, staple gun, and fabric ready. Make easy, inexpensive curtains with your favorite fabric (a sheet, YES, I did say that, or a tablecloth offers more whimsy). Just measure and hem one end big enough for a drapery rod. Decorative window film looks especially hip on paneled windows and doors and is perfect for renters or those who like to redecorate their space often, since the film can easily peel off if needed. Voila! You now have custom and inexpensive window treatments that are uniquely you. Your window treatments do not need to have a cookie cutter look. Add your own style and be creative with curtain rods, tie backs, and valances. These little finishing touches can make your windows quirky or quiet. Custom Window Treatment Ideas Why choose custom window treatments? Unlike premade shades, which are already measured to a standard width and length, custom shades are measured to your exact window. Although two windows may look identical, mostly likely the measurements between the two will be slightly different. Windows are finicky and like to fool you with their odd shapes and throw you a curve ball whenever they can. Custom window treatments allow each shade to fit exactly right inside each window without the length being too long/short, or the width too wide/slim. Custom window treatments are handcrafted and fit each and every window like a beautifully made dress, your fabric, your size, your style, your price! Each window covering is meticulously designed in a workroom of real people, cutting, sewing, fitting all the components together to create that special piece that will complete your look. Whatever style of window treatments you choose, custom made, handcrafted window treatments are products that will create a balance, harmony and rhythm to your lifestyle and complement and complete your home. Don’t let the last thing you decorate be an afterthought, but let it be the finishing flourish! No more ugly windows!

CHAPTER 4: WINDOW TREATMENT IDEAS FOR DOORS Sliding Door Window Treatment Ideas The search for window treatments for doors, especially sliding glass doors, always seems to perplex people. Well, it shouldn’t, as there are many alternative options to finding the solution that fits your style. Your first choice might be vertical blinds, which are installed on a track across the top of the window and can be pulled closed just like drapes. Many people choose popular verticals but Panel Track blinds are a modern and versatile choice as each panel slides effortlessly on a track, so clean and smooth. I love Panel Tracks because so many colors, fabric patterns and even woven woods are offered. Since heat loss is a big concern with large glass doors, I often choose vertical cellular shades. They work just like a regular cellular shade, only sideways and bigger. Hanging drapery is a popular style to decoratively cover your sliding glass doors, as long as you don’t mind the push and pull every morning and night! It’s always a workout with drapes. Window Treatment Ideas for French Doors Sheer shades are perfect on French doors for letting filtered light into your home. They are so light and breezy. Roller and solar shades are another great option. Roller shades come in so many colors and textures and solar shades are best if you need to control some of the incoming light but still want to have a bit of a view to the outside. If the doors are frequently used, you will want the hold down brackets that keep the bottom of the shade in place so the blinds won’t bang around every time you let the dog out. For interior French doors, which might separate an office or formal dining room from the rest of the house, sheer horizontal or sheer roller shades are a chic way to provide a little privacy. Sheers are “sheerly” wonderful! Patio Door Window Treatment Ideas Patio Doors are an ode to the outdoors and whether your patio door is a huge slider leading to the backyard or a standard door with a window leading to your deck, you have many ways to keep the sun in or out and your view and privacy intact. Vertical blinds and panel track blinds are durable and are the “working horse” for large windows as they are strong but fluid. Lined drapery or vertical cellular shades are the best way to go if temperature control is a priority. You could also opt for sheer vertical shades which I recommend for the look and appeal of sheer drapery, but also have vanes that can be tilted opened or closed. Whatever you choose, let the light be your friend and not your enemy.
