The Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey & New York Metro team knows window treatments and the role windows play in home decorating activities are a key part of any remodeling project.

Windows are perhaps the most powerful visual component in any room. Most people know they play an integral part in improving energy efficiency, but they control natural light flow – something every interior decorator will tell you is essential for illuminating indoor spaces and creating a welcoming tone. In essence, windows enhance the beauty and comfort of your home in a multitude of ways. And, when designed and dressed properly, your home’s windows provide a seamless connection between interior and exterior living spaces.

Like designing modern, high-performance replacement windows, dressing your windows is easier if you have a plan. Here is a step-by-step formula used by many interior decorators for successfully dressing your windows to will give your windows the respect they deserve.

Step #1: Window Treatment Design

Whether you buy off the shelf or order custom-made window treatments, the decorating solution should be absolutely beautiful, effortless to use and budget friendly. There are literally dozens, probably hundreds of basic styles to choose from including insulating cellular shades, room darkening draperies, Roman shades, casual curtains and wood blinds. There are even safe window treatments designed to protect your family!

Step #2: Measuring for Your Window Treatments

Like the replacement window design journey, a perfect recipe for successful window treatment design includes precision measurements. There are many good videos on the internet that demonstrate how to gather accurate measurement for different window types. You can also discuss measurements with your replacement window design consultant, because these specialists gather exact measurements before placing a manufacturing order for your new windows. You should also ask your window treatment manufacturer partner for instructions or assistance getting accurate measurements.

Step #3: Manufacturing Your Window Treatments

Speaking of manufacturing, that is the third step in the four-part formula. Manufacturing may involve working with a local tailor to create your window treatments, ordering from an online retailer that performs alterations to customize a fit, or buying directly from a brick-and-mortar store. Remember that it may take many weeks to receive custom-manufactured draperies and shades, so order as early as you can.

Step #4: Installing Your Window Treatments

The final step is perhaps the most important. Just like installing new windows, gorgeous window treatments, manufactured to exacting measurements with fabric and materials that perfectly complete your interior decorating scheme can be ruined by a poor installation.

Just like the installation process for your new replacement windows, only people with the knowledge and tools necessary to install your window treatments properly should attempt this important job.

Of course, if you are hanging a simple curtain with an envelope casing on a standard rod, the process is not as complex. You will still need to exercise care not to drill or nail into your window frame or glass as doing so could damage your windows and void your warranty.
