3 STEPS TO FINDING THE RIGHT WINDOW TREATMENTS FOR YOU
1)Become familiar with the costs of materials and services.
Start by visiting showrooms, custom window treatment shops, and home centers. Also call for catalogs with ready-made examples. Compare the prices. Evaluate everything, including the fabric, the lining, and the interdining,so you are comparing apples to apples. Don’t forget the details. Take a look at hardware, such as tiebacks, tassels, and trimmings.If you are considering a custom treatment, talk to Karin Conn, who has collaborated with Rod for years to produce beautiful treatments. There is never a charge for measuring or the initial consultation. She will discuss fees or her services as well as the cost of installation. Because you haven’t made any final decisions about the style, keep in mind that the prices you are gathering are only rough estimates. The purpose is to educate yourself about the cost of varios components so that you will be able to make realistic choices that are within your budget. If you take this project on yourself to save money, be sure you factor in your time as part of the cost. One huge benefit of dealing with a designer, ids that they have the samples. and the expertise to give you exactly what you’re looking for.
2) Choose a window treatment
Now that you are familiar with pricing, you can hone in on the window treatment that suits your style and your pocketbook.review all of the stylistic possibilities.that will be the time what type of window treatment you plan to install: custom (with an interior designer), ready-made or semi-custom (through a retailer), or home sewn. If you don’t want to go the custom made route but unsure about the style and color, look for an interior designer who will work with you on a consultant basis For an hourly fee, he or she can help you narrow down the styles, fabrics. and colors that will best suit your needs and your decor.
3) Calculate the costs.
Add up the price of the materials (face fabric, lining. and interlining if any) trimmings, hardware, rods, and labor. As a safety net, add 15 to 20% to the total to account for any hidden costs. This will give you a general idea of the expense. If the final figure is beyond your neans, you have two options- First, because this is the planning stage, you can easily make some money-saving changes. Choose a less expensive fabric, such as cotton instead of linen, or simplify the design: switch from labor-intensive goblet pleats to a gathered heading. or opt not to use an interlining. However, you may not want to compromise on the design. If so, try the second approach, which involves doing the window treatments in stages. For example, a multi-layered design nmay have a mini blinds, lined drapery, silk rope tiebacks with tassels, and a shaped cornice. Start by installing the most necessary element of the design-in this case the mini blinds for light and privacy control. When you have the money, you can addd the next layer, which consists of the the drapery and the traverse rod. the last element to be put into place are the luxurious extras- the cornice and the tasseled tiebacks.
