While so much emphasis is out on refurbishing shrubs and planting flowers, lets redirect our attention to the inside, outside view of your gardens, your windows. Pleated shades offer a modern, semi-formal look to any room, and with our decorative floral patterns, it will surely welcome in the spring.

Home, Home, Home, and a Merry Decor!

By: Meghan

Hot cocoa with marshmallows, cookies and milk, carolers hung on the hearth, gum drops, sugar plums!, and the focus of the room- that grand tree with bundles of presents. Piled high and wrapped- the whole room festive. It is Christmas time and you are on a decorating frenzy. The only thing to bring the figurines, candles, throws, tree skirt, garland- oh those twinkle lights! altogether are your window decorations. This isn’t about single tapered candles or spray on snow (what a mess to clean up!), this is about decorations that are decor!

Sunny Summer Days

By: Dominic007_barcelona_java_010

I have a summer home on the cape that I purchased early this spring. I was just finishing up all the odds and ends that needed to be done around the place and one of my last projects to get done was window treatments for the sunroom. The sunroom is in the back of the house and has six double hung windows and also a french door which leads out to the back deck. I have neighbors that are near by that can view the back of my home. I also have furniture and a tv in the room. I wanted to keep within a reasonable budget while still purchasing a quality product.

Roller Shades

By: Sai
What do you think of when you think of roller shades?

I know what I remember, and believe me it is not a pretty site! Does anyone remember when you could pick up roller shades from a local store? Those things were hideous! They were the cheap vinyl, and they only came in white or off white. The way they operated was horrible. I still have scars on my hand! Remember they were on a spring system, so you can catch and stop it in place, but it seemed to never work. I would try to stop it in place and it would just spring back up. They did have a scallop option at the bottom, but you could never pick the scallop style they were always the same. I always said they needed to be updated somehow. The only nice thing about them at that time was that they were just easy to clean.

Don’t forget pleated shades.

By: Sai
I ask this question why are they forgotten? Why do they get treated like that member in the family that no one likes? Everyone has that member, the one that gets invited to the party just because you don’t want to be rude, but all the family secretly hopes that they do not show up. That’s  how I feel pleated shades get treated. Especially when comparing them against cellular shades.

Panel Tracks – The Stylish New Way To Treat Your Slider?!

By: Karen

As I was roaming around the blind stores in the area, I was trying to come up with a treatment for the new slider we added in our basement – I love having it open, but because of the sun coming in on the TV in the afternoon it needs to be covered.  We had refinished the room completely, and it now serves as a family/entertaining room, and installed a slider that opens up to the backyard and pool.  Chances are it will become the new hangout for my teenage daughter and her friends, as well as a great place to entertain my friends.
