This is a great question, which actually does have a right answer. The first step is to think about why you want to cover your window. What are your major concerns – privacy, insulation, energy savings, security, style, light control or to protect your furnishings? This is the most important question to answer when trying to find the perfect window covering.
Next, it is important to let your designer or window treatment consultant know your budget. This will help in narrowing down the product categories and makes sure that you will get a solution you love within your budget. (I will write up a price guide at a later time – stay tuned!)
Now comes design! Think about the emotion you want to create for yourself and others who enter into that room and your home. Now is your chance to create the ambiance and feel that you always wanted. It is truly amazing how the color, style, and options of your window treatments can effect the mood and feel of the room. (I will write up a style guide at a later time – stay tuned!)
