First, let me say that shopping for window treatments is no joke. There are way too many options out there and consequently, way too many ways you can go terribly wrong. Also, if you want to do it right, windows treatments are a pretty significant investment so it’s important to take the time to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want.
Well, after reading countless consumer reports and reviews and driving everyone around me crazy I finally decided on custom roman shades from the Shade Store. (For the record, I am not being paid in any way for this post.) First I ordered a bunch of samples.
Then I placed them all over the place to see how they looked in different rooms at different times of the day.
Then this weekend, hubby and I measured all the windows. Being the smartie that he is, he made this chart to record all the measurements and keep them straight:
Pretty clever, eh? Did you know you should measure each window in three spots vertically and horizontally for the best fit? I didn’t.
So with the windows measured and the materials selected, it looks like the window treatment saga is finally coming to an end. HALLELUJAH.
P. S. Did I use the term window treatments enough in this post? Sheesh. What a goofy term . . .
