It is possible to get the designer look that you are looking for without spending top dollar on them. Today’s video will show you a very nice roller shade, though it started quite basic. Simply by sewing on a horizontal banding to the bottom edge with the same material as the drapery that sits to the side of it, we were able to come up with a well-coordinated window treatment without breaking the bank.
In the end, it’s still a roller shade. It acts like a roller shade, just rolling up and down at the customer’s whim, but by adding that banding, it took something that looked “functional” and turned it into something of a conversation piece. The process of deciding how to do this window covering was actually a little complicated. It started as a discussion of valances and ended up as a functioning shade. Sometimes, clients only have an idea of what they are looking for, and a good designer’s job is to probe their minds and help them figure out what will best suit their needs.
