Custom window treatments are the unsung heroes of interior design, offering a transformative touch that can elevate any room. As Elle Decor magazine aptly notes, “Window treatments are the finishing touch that make a room feel complete.” They have the power to tie together the elements of a space, harmonizing colors, textures, and styles.

Architectural Digest reinforces this sentiment, emphasizing that custom window treatments are pivotal in achieving a tailored, cohesive look. “Custom treatments are the hallmark of a thoughtfully designed space,” they affirm, highlighting how these personalized solutions add a layer of sophistication and individuality.

One of the primary advantages of window treatments is the ability to perfectly fit the unique dimensions and architecture of a room. Off-the-shelf options may not provide the precise coverage or aesthetic cohesion that a custom treatment can deliver. This level of precision ensures that the treatments complement the room’s layout and enhance its overall atmosphere.

Furthermore, custom window treatments offer an unparalleled opportunity for personalization. They allow homeowners to select fabrics, patterns, and colors that align with their specific tastes and complement the existing decor. This level of customization ensures that every element in the room works in harmony, creating a seamless visual experience.

In addition to aesthetics, custom window treatments provide practical benefits. They offer precise control over light filtration, privacy, and insulation. This level of functionality ensures that the treatments not only look beautiful but also serve a practical purpose, enhancing the overall livability of the space.

Moreover, window treatments can add significant value to a home. A well-designed and professionally crafted treatment can elevate the perceived quality and luxury of a space, making it more appealing to potential buyers.

In conclusion, custom window treatments play a vital role in interior design, offering a level of personalization, functionality, and aesthetic cohesion that off-the-shelf options simply cannot match. As both Elle Decor and Architectural Digest emphasize, these treatments are the finishing touch that brings a room together, creating a space that is both visually stunning and functionally superior. When it comes to designing a room, custom window treatments are an investment in style, comfort, and overall ambiance.

Window Treatments Can Make a Room

One of the most important elements of a room design is the window treatments which play an important role in defining a space and completing the design of the room.  Windows allow natural light into the room which affects the way everything appears in the room at different times of the day from colors on the walls to fabrics on your furnishings. Window treatments are categorized as functional and decorative. Thousands of fabrics from classic to contemporary can be used to create your window treatments and there are just as many custom drapery options. Choices range from simple fabric panels that complement blinds or shades, to multi-layered treatments that add beauty and drama to formal rooms.


It’s important to determine what functional treatments you require first. Examine the lighting in the room at different times of the day in relationship to the furnishings in the room. Consider where you want privacy, need to avoid glare (where is your TV located), where you need natural light for reading and performing tasks (like the kitchen, bedroom, office), and harsh sunlight streaming into a room that can ruin fine fabrics (a window over your sofa). Once you determine which windows need a functional treatment, decide which product suits your needs and style best. There are many functional window products to choose from such as shutters, blinds, cellular shades, Roman shades, woven wood shades and panel track shades.  They all serve the same function of providing privacy and controlling the amount of light in a room however remember shades can only go up and down unlike blinds or shutters that have vanes that can be adjusted to let different amounts of light in.


Decorative treatments can be draperies, panels, valances, cornice boxes, or lambrequins. The clean lines of an upholstered cornice or the elaborate detail of a valance can add just the right touch to any window. Drapery panels are a beautiful way to frame your windows especially when you have a functional hard treatment. They soften and complete the window design. Drapery panels can be fabricated with different headers from French pleats to grommet tops-formal to casual and contemporary. Your design style will determine what type header you choose. You may opt for a full, functional, traversing drapery that covers the entire window.  Full draperies are a nice choice when a hard treatment is not required or can be combined with fabric shades in a formal room or with woven wood shades or blinds in a casual room. Properly scaled hardware is just as important as the fabrics you choose. Remember the fabrics and hardware should complement your style, décor and room color scheme.


If this sounds overwhelming, consult a professional Interior Designer for advice.  Your choices are endless but the final result will be beautiful and functional window treatments you can enjoy for years.
