Cellular Shades: so many Choices!

Probably one of my favorites! Price wise, they are mid range, with many colors, sizes, and functions. They are one of the most functional, since you can have the top down/bottom up style, cordless for child safety, flipped vertically for patio doors, and motorized. They work very well for skylights. Cellular shades will protect your furnishings from harmful UV rays. The honey comb construction is very efficient and will help your space to retain the heat in the winter and the coolness in the summer and they look stunning with the various colors and fabrics.

As for colors and patterns, I chose the Persona shades to share with you, to show how versatile these shades are.

Tips on how to create beautiful top treatments without breaking the bank!

What determines the cost of any window covering are the labor cost, materials used and the installation cost.

Here are some tips to consider when you are planning your next window covering project!

  • The design: ┬áthe simpler the design, the less expensive the treatment will be. Flat valances, inverted pleat valances, shirred and pinch pleated on a board, or a cornice board is considered less costly to fabricate. You can add a little touch to a simple flat valance by adding a contrast trim, tassels on each end, or perhaps some buttons in a coordinating fabric.
  • The cost of the materials: ┬áThe variety is endless when selecting fabrics. You can find gorgeous cottons, silks, and woven blends at an affordable price. Mixing textures, or adding coordinating inexpensive trims, will give you that designer quality look at an affordable price. Another tip is to perhaps splurge on the hardware, and choose a modestly priced fabric. The rich, opulent look of the hardware will make up for the simplicity of the style and your choice of the fabric.
  • The installation cost: One way to cut on the installation cost is by choosing economically installed treatments. Cornices, and board mounted valances, are less expensive to install than sheared or pleated on a rod.

Finally, the best way to save money is by work with a professional, who will help you avoid costly mistakes, direct you, share expertise and resources, and respect your budget and work within it.
