I’ve never really been a drape or curtain gal myself, although in some homes they can look so elegant and ad that extra touch of character that a room needs. I do like the look of valances though and have been looking around trying to figure out how to measure for them if I decide to save some money and buy them online.
I found this really cool video on The Factory Bargain Drapes site that shows exactly how to measure your window according to what type of window treatment you are looking for so now I have an idea of how to go about shopping for what I want.
The bloggers at Home Interior and Furniture have a great list to help get anyone’s creative juices flowing when it comes to home decor and they totally recommend window treatments for improving the atmosphere in a room…….
"Choose drapes or curtains that compliment the design style you have
chosen for the rest of your room. Using rich looking fabrics on the
windows will add a feeling of luxury to your
room, and help to bring
all of your room decorating ideas together."
Unfortunately, my problem is, there are so many cool, modern, fabrics to choose from I never know which one to pick.
