custom window

  1. Hiring a professional to help design custom windows can make a huge difference in the final result. While we all like to think of ourselves as people of good taste and an eye for things of beauty, not everyone is suited for designing window coverings. People that are lucky enough to have their own custom window treatments made should keep in mind that just because something is custom, doesn’t mean that one shouldn’t receive a little bit of help when designing it. When people start to brainstorm ideas for their custom window coverings, they tend to check out online sites such as,, where thousands of different window coverings can be found. When people go onto window coverings websites it is important to remember that the window covering offered on these types of sites were created by professional window treatment designers, often times some of the best designers in the industry. It is unrealistic for people to assume that they will be able to create their own window covering with an outcome similar to those they see on professional sites, unless they receive help from a professional themselves. Not only is the creative aspect of designing window treatments more difficult than it may appear, there are also certain practical aspects of designing window coverings which might help to make a window covering more functional in real life. Having ideas about what a custom window treatment should look like is a great start, but in order for those ideas to grow into an actual window covering that will look great in a home, the services of a professional designer are highly recommend.
  2. Checking out what designers did in the past in another way to create a unique window covering that will truly be custom. Designers are always looking back at what other designers did in the past, as fashion is said to be a circle, not a line. Old designs and styles are always coming back, especially right now when the retro look is in such high demand. By checking out catalogs of old window treatments people can get amazing ideas for what they might want to do with their own window coverings. Old styles can be altered to create stylish new window treatments which will be truly unique from what the rest of the people have in their homes. Another plus that comes with using old designs to help create new window coverings is the fact that old designs have already been tried and tested, and were at one point a successful window treatment.
  3. Being more creative when it comes to the materials used to create custom window coverings is another slick idea that will help make something truly special. People sometimes forget just what an amazing array of different materials exist out there, all of which could be the perfect material for a custom window covering. Just because a certain material might not be popular amongst the traditional window treatments, that doesn’t mean that it wouldn’t make a fantastic window treatment!
