For the life of me, I do not understand why anyone would want to order blinds over the internet! Over the last 30 years that I have been selling blinds, shades, and shutters, you would not BELIEVE all the mistakes we have made in ordering, installing, having to repair blinds that have rotted string, and remote controls which need re-programmed! It's been a painful learning experience. I learn something each and every time something doesn't go quite right! I recently just had a customer tell me they were going to order from a big box store because they could get a better price.
Every year our clients ask for Custom Window Treatments and it seems like we go through phases when people ask for the same styles. What they ask for is usually predicated by what they have seen in the magazines and in retail stores. Most of the time it is something very simple and boring…something that is quite frankly, an afterthought! It has no style, no color, and it is usually looks like warm glass of milk!!! Does this describe something you have in your home???
This Beautiful Window Treatment was created by Fine Designs Drapery Workroom a couple of years ago. I was recently in the home to do another project and thought this was definitely worthy of mentioning. Many people don’t know what to do with full arch windows and end up with one of those sheer “sunburst” things in their windows which always seem to sag. That is one of my pet peeves…a poorly made sunburst! To change the thinking process, I tend to swag fabric over posts, drapery hardware or even door knobs to draw the eye up and back down to emphasize the window without covering it up.
