Are you looking for new stylish window treatments for your home? Window Fashions offers a huge variety of Chelsea blinds, draperies, shades, shutters, and more to fit the needs of any homeowner.
Draperies are classic window treatments that add an elegant, warm touch to any room. Whether you choose simple linen or silk panels, pinch pleated classic sheers or boldly patterned fabrics, custom draperies work with any decorating style. With a seemingly limitless variety of choices, draperies and window treatments can be casual or completely elegant. They can display your personality, fashion and interior style, yet add privacy and enhancement features.
Shades are “soft” window treatments which are made of materials on a continuous roll to cover a large swath of a window opening, fitting snugly into your window and stacking neatly at the top. Shades are drawn up and down by cords or rolled up with a spring device. Shades have no slats or vanes and offer a smooth look to your windows; hence, they are called soft window treatments as the fabric and feeling of the shade is warm and flowing. Although you cannot adjust for light filtering, as with blinds, you can choose different levels of opacity for light preferences. Roller Shades, Roman Shades and Cellular Shades are the most popular “shades,” with cellular shades topping the list as a favorite window treatment.
Shutters are a type of window treatment consisting of wood or faux wood louvers mounted in a solid frame. The louvers are manipulated by a tilt rod hidden at the back or in the middle of the shutter. Shutters are easy to maintain. A regular wiping down with a damp soft cloth is all that is typically needed to keep your plantation shutters looking new. Shutters also give homeowners near-absolute control over privacy and air flow. Additionally, their classic design complements a variety of home decor, making them a favorite design element of both interior designers and homeowners.
Blinds are “hard” window coverings, composed of slats or vanes that tumble down the blind as it is lowered or can be pulled across a window to stack lengthwise, to the side. These louvers or slats are individually formed together to create the complete blind and are usually controlled by a manual pull cord. These slats are meant to stay closed tightly for privacy and for light control, but they can also be adjusted or tilted at different angles to allow you to control the amount of light needed. Wood, Faux-Wood, Woven Wood, Mini Blinds and Vertical Blinds are the most popular “blinds” and are usually made of wood, metal, a composite or a woven grass or bamboo. These materials exude a tactile feeling of hard or bumpy; hence the name, hard window treatments. All of these blinds offer a traditional and classic look and match any decor style–always a handsome, architectural, clean look for your windows.
