We love a nice set of custom window draperies, but sometimes your windows (and sliding glass doors) need a window treatment that gives you more light control AND a great look.

We were tired of the affect our heavy drapes were having on room appearance, and 2. Tired of the necessary upkeep required for the heavy material used in the drapery.

Covering an old home’s windows with woven woods

Here’s a juicy confession:  while I work at Blinds.com and love seeing all of our customers’ window transformations, I have secretly been holding out on a few windows in my own home.And it’s not because I don’t love our products.  I’m just in love with our old school cylinder glass windows.  You know the kind you might have seen at your grandparent’s home that look a little wavy and smeary when you look outside?  Let’s just say I got a little over-protective on what would cover those panes.
