Window Treatments 101: The Case for Custom

There’s nothing that brings the room together like custom-designed, custom-made window treatments. If you’ve ever paged through an interior design magazine and wondered about that seemingly elusive quality that makes every room they feature look perfectly polished, we’re here to tell you it’s all about the windows and how they’re covered. Sure there’s a deft-handed professional stylist placing a vase or a bowl of fruit just so, but there’s simply nothing like the tailored perfection of drapes, blinds or shades hand chosen, cut to fit and installed expressly for the purpose of optimizing the comfort, usability and beauty of a specific space.

Borrow from the Design Pros

When you choose custom window treatments for your home, that extra touch comes through in spades every single day, morning noon or night.

Use Your Secret Advantage

Friends and family will likely wonder just what is that elusive quality that makes your home look extra special. It’s up to you whether you tell them – or keep your secret to yourself. Either way, smith+noble custom window treatments will take the look of your entire home to the next level.

Get the Light Just Right

When you go custom, you’re in complete control of your environment. The materials you choose, how you place them, how you operate them, and the multitude of ways you use them let you filter light, preserve a view, block UV rays, insulate, create privacy and enhance style. It’s far easier to create the exact combination of performance and design using custom window coverings than it is fumbling with standard one-size-fits all treatments.
