Each entryway is an important space in your home–not to be overlooked. They set the tone. To make this specialized area more inviting, it’s best to add fashionable & functional window treatments. Ask yourself these questions before you begin. Do you need privacy? Do you need to control the glare of sunshine? What about the placement of your entryway windows? Are they up high and a nuisance to adjust? The answers to these questions will direct you to the proper solutions.

The Hardest Working Room

Our kitchens have taken on more responsibility lately. Once, simply a place to gather at meal time has become more of a transformative space. The heart of our home can go from craft room to classroom to gathering space throughout the course of the day. It’s time we consider how to manage the ever-changing atmosphere to benefit our family’s unique needs with window coverings. By recognizing how natural light moves throughout the day, we can add treatments that adjust with your lifestyle to create a comfortable, working atmosphere all day long.

Today’s Dining Rooms

Is your dining room a formal showplace only used on special occasions, or is it an extension of an open floor plan? Either way, it’s important to create a home that reflects your family’s routine. Add window treatments that can transform its function and make it more of a useful space. Dining rooms aren’t just for Sundays anymore, equip them with the proper window treatments capable of varying lighting levels and diversify the function of your dining room.

Living Rooms Are for Living

Another popular room in the home is our living room or family room–a large casual space where family gathers to spend time together. It’s a difficult task to decide on window treatments for every room in your home, but when it comes to large living areas choose wisely. Be sure to consider the rooms daily (and nightly) use and the specific needs of your family members.

Consider this, our clients with young families love the idea of room darkening shades to convert their space for afternoon movies or nap-time. Others enjoy subtle coverage to reduce strong glare, resulting in enhanced personal comfort and privacy at night, we suggest sheer shades in this case.

For the Bedrooms

It may come as no surprise that one of the most common rooms for window treatment services is the bedroom. This is a room that needs options. Luckily with so many featured styles, each bedroom in your home can be customized with the same functional needs of privacy and room darkening, but with completely different styles. Roman shades? Draperies? This is when a visit from our window specialist is called for.
