When doing this drapery and valance window treatment in Reno, NV, we worked closely with the client to come up with a style and budget that worked for them. They had purchased the home over 20 years previously and had lived with the existing window treatments for that whole time. When the new drapery and valance was installed, they were so happy with the result.

Drapery and valance looks to fit your personal style

This brings up a pretty major point in regard to home design. If you are buying an existing home, it probably will have window treatments or window coverings in it already. You have a choice to make as to whether you will live with the old or bring in the new. The same question remains for people who move into a new house and purchase “temporary” blinds or shades. They say that they are buying them for a short while and then changing them quickly.

My experience is that once a purchase is made, it tends to be semi-permanent. So, if you are spending money on a home, and its interior, especially in window coverings, like the drapery and valance in the YouTube video, make sure that you really like what you are getting. If you buy something that is intended to be temporary, you may be living with that decision for many years. In this case, it was 23 years. That is almost like deciding to have unprotected relations with your mate and having to live with that decision for 20 plus years. Decisions have consequences. Of course, your children are more than just decoration and function for your home, but I think you get the point. If I can help someone to make a better choice for their window treatments in their home, I will be happy they read today’s blog.
