Dress Those Windows will help you stay within your budget.

A common misconception in the window treatment industry is that custom shades are always expensive. This is not true. It is possible to manage the price with the type of materials, design, and installation you choose.

At Dress Those Windows, we provide an extensive selection of fabrics, rods, finials, and operating systems at prices ranging from $ to $$$. Rest assured; you don't have to opt for the most costly material to achieve a stunning look.

Another deciding factor is the design of the window treatment and Dress Those Windows offers various options from:

  1. Roller Shades (In Screen Fabrics or Natural Wovens): Window treatments don't have to be complicated or expensive to be effective. Roller Shades are popular among homeowners because they are versatile and can be made from a variety of materials, including sheer, opaque, blackout, and natural woven fabrics. Whether you're looking for simplicity, affordability, or both, Roller Shades are an excellent option for any room in your home.

  2. Roman Shades (In Fabrics or Natural Wovens): Roman Shades are the epitome of sophistication and refinement, with an extensive array of options available, including colors, patterns, and materials. The pleated fabric adds a touch of elegance and decorative charm to any living space.

  3. Faux or Wood Blinds: Faux or Wood Blinds are an excellent solution for covering your windows where humidity may be a concern. This option allows for a clear view when the shade is down and the slats are open; with a simple twist of a wand, the slats close for ultimate privacy and light control.

  4. Drapery Panels: There is a wide range of styles, colors, patterns, and lengths available for Drapery Panels. These panels are typically hung on either rods or tracks and can be customized with various hardware options, including finials, rings, brackets, or traverses. By drawing the eye towards the windows in the room, they can create the illusion of a larger space.

  5. Traversing Panels: Traversing Panels are an excellent choice for those who want to add a touch of style to their windows. These non-moving panels can surround the window or complement other treatments such as Roman or Roller Shades. Homeowners can rest assured that they are making a confident and stylish choice with Traversing Panels.

  6. Cellular or Honeycomb Shades: Honeycomb Shades are known for their insulation and energy efficiency, as well as their versatility, functionality, and attractive appearance. They complement various decor styles, ranging from traditional to contemporary.

  7. Shaped Valances, Swags, Cornices & Fascia: Valances enhance the decor and conceal the hardware and rods needed to hang window treatments. Two main types of valances are available: simple and pleated. Simple valances have a minimalist design with minimal embellishments, while pleated valances feature crisp or flowing fabric that can create a formal or casual appearance. Swags consist of draped fabric that falls gracefully on either side of the window, while cornices are box-like structures covered in fabric that add an element of elegance and sophistication to a room. Cornices can also be painted or stained for a more personalized touch.

You can trust that Dress Those Windows has the perfect window treatment, no matter your budget. With a wide variety of options, you can explore different styles and elevate the sophistication of your home with ease.
