In 1963, Pantone established the first color matching system, referred to as the Pantone Matching system or simply PMS. Today, Pantone is the main reference tool for all industries when they work to match colors and forecasted hues. PMS uses a standardized Pantone numbering system to identify each color (for example: Pantone Red 199), making it easy for anyone to refer to a specific color. If you’re looking to add a forecasted color—or any other shade—to your home, work with Window Treats serving Brooklyn, NY. We’ll happily help you match the specific Pantone color you want.

Exciting Windows! Award Winner of National Design Award
Yes, this was in 2013, but we are still so proud 🙂
Elliot Laniado designed a classy window treatment solution for a homeowner in Bay Ridge. He never imagined his drapery and shades would be seen as the number one draperies project for the year 2013! At the Exciting Windows! national conference Elliot presented his project and was awarded the highest window treatment design honor of more than 100 window fashions designers! The award is a memorial to Valerie Bursten, a nationally recognized designer who appeared on HGTV. This award was created by her husband, the co-founder of Exciting Windows!
Hunter Douglas Duette Architella shades insulate your home so that 50% of the heat you are paying so much for doesn’t escape out through the windows. Note the red color in the picture to the right. This is a typical home, similar to the homes we do work for in Rumson and Holmdel New Jersey. Those red spots are where heat is escaping from the home. Notice that the majority of the heat is escaping through the windows!
Any type of window treatment would be helpful for insulation, but the level of insulation will differ. Wood blinds with slats have many gaps and therefore offer limited insulation. Roman shades, Hunter Douglas Vignette, Hunter Douglas Silhouette, and other shadings are better, but still not the best.
Shades, Blinds, Drapery, Energy Saving Window Treatments. Green and energy saving blinds and shades are a hot topic. More and more homeowners when asking about shades blinds or drapery are requesting that they serve their need for ‘responsible design.’ Homeowners want more than just beauty from their window treatments, they want more of a reason for their product. It is all about how the purchase of shades make one feel. We all want to be happy with our acquisitions.

They want to tell their friends:”not only is our Hunter Douglas Silhouette shades are beautiful, it protects our furniture, is made in the USA, is child safe, and offers privacy and view through in one product.” That is why more and more people are asking for window shades, blinds, drapery, and energy saving window treatments.

The Break-Away Tassel was specially designed to split in half with pressure as a child safety mechanism. Once it snaps and becomes two, one just needs to snap it back together. It is constructed of two parts with four holes for strings. Two strings are part of the tassel, one on each side, and two are loose. To put the tassel back together, place the two strings back in their spots and click the two sides of the tassel together. Voila – your tassel is “fixed.”
