Browse through Pinterest long enough and you’ll eventually think you have what it takes to be a window covering expert, maybe even an interior designer. But what does it really take to be an expert on home decor? There are prestigious universities that educate individuals on how to choose furniture, how to draw up the proper specifications for a project, and how to oversee contractors. Well consider ABC Blinds & Drapery your window treatment expert and educator for this week’s blog post. 

You may see curtains or blinds simply as a way to block out the sun while you catch up on sleep, but we see a blank portrait begging to be dressed. Believe it or not, there are several factors to be considered before scheduling the installation appointment. While all of our window covering products are high quality and beautiful in their own right, some may work better than others in your home. This is why we urge our customers to arrange an in-home consultation, so that we can get to know you and your home before choosing a window treatment. We will also bring along sample books of products, patterns, and color options in order to determine what will best compliment the current design of your home. Did we mention that our in-home consultations are free and that you are not obligated to purchase our products? Although we hope that you find yourself so smitten with our options that you do! 

The first consideration is which room you are looking to add a window covering to. For the bedroom, your main concern may be blocking out the sun. Whereas the living room may call for plenty of light and more flare for entertaining. Beyond privacy and light control, there are several other factors, such as ease of use. We offer motorized shades and blinds, but perhaps this isn’t the route for you if all you can imagine is a remote war between children. The interior design of the rest of your home is also a major factor. Our wood blinds and natural woven shades are perfect for those who want to bring an element of nature to the home. For those who are drawn to the modern look, we also offer roller shades that give any room an instant update. We have customizable options if you can’t find the right words to describe your personal style. The combinations of draperies and hardware are seemingly endless. This may seem overwhelming, but that’s why ABC & Drapery is here…to suggest the perfect combination that you might not have known existed!
