The big picture: Choosing drapes for your home

When it comes to selecting drapes for your home, there’s a lot that can be said about different fabrics, the ways in which you can anchor them or even the colors themselves. Yet at the end of the day, there are several considerations that you must always keep in mind, regardless of the room or type of home you are furnishing.

Here at Metropolitan Window Fashions, we pride ourselves on offering a quality in-home service to our customers in the New Jersey and New York regions. As such, we believe that offering the right information to our clients is vital to helping them make excellent decor choices for their homes.

Tips for Choosing Custom Drapes

If you’re starting the process of choosing custom drapes, shades and blinds for your residence, you should consider:

The kind of window – A lot depends on the shape and size of the window you’re furnishing. Before you go pick out the covering, you should consider doing two things. You can either take your own measurements so that you know exactly which size of ready-made draperies to buy.  Or you can rely on a Metropolitan Window Fashions professional decorator to come directly to your home for a free consultation to accurately measure your windows and help you choose custom dressings for your space.

The functionality – You’ll want to consider how often the window will be used before choosing how to decorate it. For example, if it’s utilized regularly, you’ll want to select draperies that are simple to open and close in fabrics that are easy to maintain.  Or, you’ll want motorized window shades that easily go up and down with ease by remote control.

The size of the room – Custom window dressings can have an impact on the look of a room because of its overall size.  When working with a Metropolitan Window Fashions decorator, she will help you select window fashions that are appropriately sized and styled for the room.
