20190927 171811When choosing a window treatment, there are several parameters that will make your selection easier. It doesn't take long, even in a new home to figure out what needs to be accomplished by your window treatments.

  • Privacy ? How opaque does it need to be? Do you need it in the day, night or both?
  • Light control? Do you want to cut down glare on your tv or do you need total blackout for your bedroom?
  • Frame or mask a view? Do you want a beautiful frame around your water view or do you need to hide an eyesore in your neighbors yard?
  • Insulation?  Do you need to cover a chilly window or deaden the sound in a large cavernous space?
  • Decorative? Are you trying to add pizzazz or some color to a dull space? Are you  trying to add some architectural interest? 

Whatever you are trying to achieve, there are dozens of choices in Hard and Soft window treatments that can perfectly suit your requirements.  Uninformed choices can lead to expensive mistakes.  Working with an expert, like Ellen Sew N Sew,  will ensure you make the right choice!

Vertical blinds look ste002rile and yet, here in Florida,  they are practical for controlling light...the question is how to make them attractive?

Why not add a sheer fabric wrap to cover the plastic vane?  The sheer is attached to the top of each vane and stabilized at the hem to maintain a sleek and contemporary look as they open and close.

The sheer can be removed for cleaning, giving this treatment a long life.

This is a great way to utalize existing blinds and keep the cost of an updated treatment down for the homeowner.

There are literally thousands of sheer fabrics that can be used to achieve this look.  Many of them are 118" wide which allows the fabric to be railroaded for a seamless application.   Sheers also come in many price ranges, which gives the customer a lot of bang for their buck.

This treatment can be the first building block in a multi layer window treatment.
