A window without drapes is like a cake without frosting

Have you every walked into a model home and think “I wish my house could look like this?” Have you noticed the one thing that most model homes have in common are, they all have draperies on every single window. A window without drapes is like a cake without frosting.

Draperies are an easy and fast way to make any room in your home look elegant. There are many styles and options to choose from. You will be surprised how adding drapes to your windows can transform any room. Don’t know where to start?

Here are a few steps to help you find the perfect drapes for your home: 

  1. Set your budget: This is the most important thing when making any home improvements. Draperies can greatly vary in price depending on which fabric you chose. Knowing your budget can help eliminate a lot of wasted time.
  2. Be clear on style: Draperies come in thousands of styles and fabrics.  You may love the style and fabric when you purchase them but when you get them home and put them up, they may not work well with the style of the room. If you are unsure of what style would look best, a House of Window Coverings design consultant can assist in finding the best look for your room or entire home.
  3. Functionality or looks:  Draperies are not only beautiful but they are also functional as well. Many drapes can greatly reduce the amount of sunlight that comes into a room. Decide if you want drapes for aesthetic reasons or for functionality or both. You don’t want to chose drapes that are meant to block out the sun for a room that is already sun starved. Have a room that will be home to a sleeping baby? Then sun reducing drapes may be the perfect fit for your baby’s room.
