Maybe you just moved into new house or maybe you are just dying to replace your window treatments that you’ve hated for too long. Does this at all relate to you? Don’t worry, this is the case 99% of the time! Sometimes the thought of redecorating or remodeling can really be overwhelming if you don’t know design. My first tip would be to hire the right designer in their field. You don’t necessarily need to hire an interior designer but you can hire designers within the fields that you need help with. In this case, lets talk about window treatments since we are window treatment designers. Here are some really great tips for different types of windows and window treatments we found online this past weekend. We found these different cases to be very current and can get your inspirational juices boiling. When you are hiring a designer, in this case, a window treatment designer, go online and look at different photos of what types of treatments you like. Also, it’s important to have a budget in mind so you know what types of treatments will be in your price range. Since we always get asked, “How are window treatments priced out?” Here is the list of treatments starting from least expensive to more expensive. Having a budget helps us know how to design the right treatments for you.

If you want to be daring, why not leave your tall windows bare? They will let lovely sun inside your home and they always look sophisticated in this way. However, you also have the alternative of installing sheer curtains so that you can add a decorative touch without covering them up too much.
If you have placed curtains on your tall windows, choose ones with a design at the top to pull the eye upwards. This provides interest in the upholstery instead of leaving the curtains to be plain and dull.
Hang your window treatments so that they touch the ceiling. This is great when your room overlooks a beautiful view as it creates a blending function, removing separations and boundaries so that the décor in the room flows. To achieve this, you can purchase drapes that contain a rod with a ripple fold. The rod has a detail onto which the fabric is gently attached.
For the ultimate symmetry and cohesiveness in your room, use the same pattern for your upholstery and curtains. This also has the tendency to make a room appear cozier and in proportion.
Covering part of your tall windows is a great way not to sacrifice the sun completely, however you can choose if you want the top or bottom of the windows to be concealed for a much more practical and individual window treatment idea. Woven shades work particularly well to provide the room with earthy, natural décor.
If your large, long windows have the tendency to make the rest of the room appear shrunken, then you can deal with this issue by making them appear lower and in proportion with the rest of the room. A long chandelier can work wonders to break the space between your furniture and ceilings.
