Custom Window Treatments

Custom window treatments are the finishing touch of any room. By adding simple drapery panels your home becomes a warm, comforting space. Window treatments stop the sun from damaging your rugs and furniture. In summer, closing drapes will give extra layers to protect from the strong Florida sun. They are not just there for good looks – they are a practical part of your design including providing privacy from outside. Call Barbara Hayman to discuss your custom window treatment needs.




Blinds & Shades

Whether you’re moving to a new home or updating your existing residence, the first thing you’ll want to do is cover the windows for privacy and light exclusion. You may need room darkening shades and draperies.

Call our window treatment specialist Barbara Hayman who will show you the many different styles of blinds, shades and shutters, and discuss the pros and cons of each for each space. Barbara has several brands of blinds and shades to show you at different price points to suit your budget. Our preferred brand is Hunter Douglas for their motorization options, incredible choice, and beautiful styles.

The custom window treatments shown here are just a selection of different styles that are available so talk to Barbara about your practical window needs.

Blue and white are always a good combination in a warm climate such as Florida

Custom Curtains & Draperies

Having the correct window treatments depend on several factors: the room, the shape of the window and its position to the sun, the style you prefer, and the drapery’s purpose.

Window treatments will last for many years  — they keep the sun out and the cool air in; they help protect your floors, rugs and furniture from fading; they add pizzazz to any room, “finishing” it off.

They can be practical too. Today’s fabrics offer room darkening options for people who work shifts such as firefighters, police, and medical staff. Also, many fabrics are stain proof from manufacturers like Krypton — perfect defense from kids and pets.

If you prefer a simple look, you can hang stationary drapery panels each side of the window, framing it, usually in combination with a blind or shade. Adding embellishment such as fringe or contrasting tape will change the mood of the room from casual to romantic and formal.

In a traditional home you may require more layers of draperies to achieve a sophisticated design. In a warm climate you may want light fabrics to frame out window protected with blinds, shades or shutters. Every situation is different.

Top Treatments

Full length draperies are not suitable for every application because in a kitchen they may get dirty; in a bathroom there may not be floor space. But in most cases Barbara can design a top treatment that will soften the hard edges of a window, hide the mechanics of another layer, and to draw focus to the window.

There are several choices of top treatment to explore:

  • Valances
  • Cornice boards
  • Pole and swag
  • Swags
  • Balloon valance
  • Lambrequin
  • Awnings

You can further embellish a top treatment with custom trim that will add an interesting and individual look to the finished product.
