It's an exciting time getting those keys for your brand new Golden Home! If you haven't already got your window treatments sorted, here are some helpful tips and suggestions to get you started.
An era of simplicity has taken over and has held its ground for quite some time, showing us that the understated trend is still very current and here to stay. Far gone are the days where we opted for heavy draped curtains, pelmets and swags; now there is more of a focus on clean lines, practical and simple solutions.

Blinds are more popular than ever, helping to form clean and contemporary spaces. Not only do they provide remedies to small rooms, they are also practical and relatively low maintenance. Roman, venetian, roller and shutter blinds are seen in both modern apartments to old villas, demonstrating how versatile the products are.

"Layering" has now become a more popular way to dress windows and bring a sense of interest and warmth to a space. The term "layering" is when you choose to use two or more options to finish your window. This is more commonly seen by fixing a roman or roller blind inside the window frame and then softening the look by hanging a simple drape to finish, while keeping things relatively simple and contemporary. Although this is a "double cost" it is something you won't do again for quite some time, and you will not be disappointed with the finished result.

While the use of strong colour is a wonderful way to add punch to a room, you won't really see a full length burgundy drape anymore. There is now a focus on neutral tones that blend rather than contrast. This trend not only provides options to change your accent colour, it also helps to make your space flow, adding continuity to your home. You may only update your window furnishings twice in your life, so this neutral trend can have great longevity if you choose your colours wisely.
Custom made options may initially seem daunting and come with a hefty price tag; however, you won't be disappointed with the finished result. The investment will not only provide your home with more value; custom made window furnishings will instantly transform each space and provide a finishing standard that no readymade option can offer.
