Co­or­di­nated styles and fabrics with highly func­tional treat­ments, like black­out shades, fur­ther em­pha­size the ben­e­fits of go­ing cus­tom.

The ba­sic rule of “you get what you pay for” can haunt any­one who de­bates go­ing for a look-alike bar­gain ver­sus pay­ing more for the qual­ity that comes with buy­ing high-end dé­cor prod­ucts. But, there is no deny­ing the ben­e­fits of hav­ing tai­lor-made fur­nish­ings that are de­signed to ex­act spec­i­fi­ca­tions to suit the space.

When it comes to drap­ery treat­ments, there are end­less pos­si­bil­i­ties to gain the in­stant grat­i­fi­ca­tion of hav­ing “same-day” win­dow cov­er­ings the very day you de­cide the need has ar­rived. But, in ad­di­tion to meet­ing prac­ti­cal needs, win­dows of­fer chal­lenges with quirky de­tail­ing, spe­cific mea­sure­ments and de­sign chal­lenges.
