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, completing the overall design.
They can be practical too. Today’s fabrics offer room darkening options for people who need to sleep in daylight hours such as doctors, nurses and firefighters. Also, many fabrics are stain resistant — 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.
We are also able to help with difficult shaped windows, such as bay windows. Bay windows offer the perfect placement for a small seating area or reading nook while taking advantage of the views outside your home.
In the Washington DC area many people have very high ceilings. Monique has experience with designing luxury window treatments for tall windows and it shows in her creativity.
