1. Long Drapery Panels + Rod + Bamboo shade
The newest trend in custom drapery is going Wide and High. A sturdy curtain rod (this one is almost 1 1/2 inches thick) gives these panels extra presence. Hang a bamboo shade underneath for added depth and for a neutral background for whatever drapery fabric you choose. This Natural Shade is picking up the colors of the hardwood and bringing the natural tones upward to balance the room.

2. Short Café Curtain
For this casual look, we prefer a small print. This fabric drapery is hanging from clip rings strung on a tension rod that’s mounted inside the window frame. It gives a casual but fun design element adding character and charm to any room. Perfect for Dining room or Kitchens and where less privacy is needed.

3. Long Panels + Wood Blinds
A return rod bends in toward the wall, so you can pull the panels around the window’s sides for extra sun-blocking. Wood or Faux Wood blinds offer more room darkening and a clean traditional look much less expensive than Plantation Shutters.

4. Patterned Roman Shade
When you pull the cord to raise this standard Roman shade, the material folds up just at the bottom, which makes it a great option for showing off a fabric with a bold design. Available now with the Cordless Lift System Advantage from Shademaker Blinds!

5. Soft Roman Shades
Roman shades create a soft and elegant ambiance. Neutral-colored shades are so versatile they work with all the colors in a room. Great for bedrooms too for that touch of romance! (Wink)

6. Move Toward Modern With Cellular Shades
The clean lines of a cellular shade give this dining room a more modern twist. Adding a dark-colorer shade to the room breaks up the monotony of the neutral wall colors while matching the furniture.

7. Control Light With Wood Blinds
Adding wood blinds to a dining room makes the space look more casual. Plus, you can tilt or pull the blinds to let in natural light. Wood blinds are not as heavy as Faux wood blinds and are easier to lift. Great choice for large windows.

8. Change a Room's Style With a Solar Shade
This traditional kitchen looks very modern with a solar shade. It helps protect the countertops and accessories by blocking out UV rays and heat, but you can still see outside. Easy to clean and low maintenance!

9. Sleep Better With Roller Shades
Roller shades are a simple and clean window treatment for a bedroom. With texture and a blackout liner, this roller shade makes the room look cozier while making it easier to fall and/or stay asleep.

10. Forget Moisture Issues With Faux Wood
Faux wood blinds create the look of real wood without warping when there's moisture in the air, making them perfect for the bathroom. The two-inch slats look chic and stylish in any decor.
