Custom Window Treatments

At Decorating Den Interiors we specialize in custom window treatments and it was a primary focus at the start of our business. Bare windows are impractical – windows need to offer privacy, shade from the outside elements and most of all, they finish your room’s décor. Interior designer Lisa Rice offers custom decorative soft window treatments from draperies, side panels, roman shades and top treatments. We also offer high quality hard window fashion brands and can offer advice on motorization throughout the home.

Custom draperies add form and function to any room as well as being practical.

Curtains & Draperies

Having the correct window treatments depend on several factors: the room, the shape of the window and its position to the sun, the style you prefer, and the drapery’s purpose.

Window treatments will last for many years and serve many purposes — they keep the sun out and the warmth in; they help protect your floors, rugs and furniture from fading; they add pizzazz to any room, “finishing” it off.

They can be practical too. Today’s fabrics offer room darkening options for people who work shifts such as firefighters, police, or medical staff. Also, many fabrics are stain proof from manufacturers like Krypton — perfect defense from kids and pets.

If you prefer a simple look, you can hang stationary drapery panels each side of the window, framing it, usually in combination with a blind or shade. Adding embellishment such as fringe or contrasting tape will change the mood of the room from formal to romantic to casual.

In a traditional home you may require more layers of draperies to achieve a sophisticated design. In a colder climate you may want heavier fabrics to keep the heat in.

Top Treatments

Full length draperies are not suitable for every application because in a kitchen they may get dirty; in a bathroom there may not be floor space. But in most cases Lisa can design a top treatment that will soften the hard edges of a window, hide the mechanics of another layer, and to draw focus to the window itself.

The top treatment here is paired with stationary drapery side panels and plantation shutters.

There are several choices of top treatment to explore:

  • Pole and swag
  • Swags
  • Valances
  • Cornice boards
  • Balloon valance
  • Lambrequin
  • Awning

You can further embellish a top treatment with custom trim that will add an interesting and individual look to the finished product.
