~ 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. Well designed window treatments will control the sun and also save on electricity bills!

Call Barbara Hayman Designs 407-819-5841 to discuss your custom window treatment needs.

Meet Barbara

Barbara started her interior decorating business over ten years ago, fulfilling her lifelong passion. Her company tagline aptly mirrors that passionate commitment: Making the world more beautiful, one room at a time. Windows are a very special part of any space and need a window treatment specialist’s attention.

Barbara says, “Your home or office interior should express your taste and support your Florida lifestyle. The whole decorating process should be easy and enjoyable for my clients.” When asked what she wanted people to know about her, Barbara’s reply was, “That there’s nothing more gratifying than seeing the happiness on my clients’ faces when they see my work transform their space into something beautiful.”

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 resistant today — 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 windows also 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 valances
  • Lambrequins
  • Awnings

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

Challenging Windows

Barbara can also help with difficult shaped windows, such as bay windows. Bay windows offer the perfect placement for a small seating area or reading nook while taking advantage of the views outside your home. However, due to their shape, bay windows can sometimes pose problems. Barbara Hayman Designs is able to design custom bay window treatments that match the style of your windows and your home.

Tall windows can also pose difficulties so hiring a design professional is again a sensible decision for a homeowner because Barbara has the resources for scaffolding and special installations because her husband is a certified window treatment installer!

The possibilities are endless and we are here to help you every step of the way. Once we have selected the right window treatment for you, Barbara will take all the measurements, place the orders and our talented fabricators will get to work to ensure that the designs are built to your specifications. We then deliver and install the products to your satisfaction.
