Translating Ideas For
Interesting Window Treatments
Into Reality

Communicating ideas for interesting window treatments can be a challenge. Have you ever had a great idea but been completely unable to explain it to someone? If you have tried to talk about interesting window treatments to someone that isn't an expert window treatment specialist you probably have experienced this type of frustration. Working with a master seamstress with years of experience in working with interior designers can eliminate this frustration completely.

Ideas For Interesting Window Treatments

Unfortunately many people do not take the time to find out about the work history of the seamstress for hire they are considering. Too late they find out that the person they have selected really did not understand just what they meant. Even worse they may find out that the seamstress really has no experience in creating unique types of window treatments.

An expert seamstress will always verify that there is understanding. She will not expect that you have all the correct terminology for each different curtain type. She will also be able to explain what she means if she makes a suggestion.

Getting The Big Picture

When you are working with a professional it is important that your ideas are front and center. It helps if you can talk to the window treatment specialist about your ideas for the room. A picture can also be very helpful. This can be easily done by browsing around online and finding a picture of a room or window similar to the style that you want.

The specialist will also ask a lot of questions. This is important so she is able to understand just what you want. It also can be very helpful in allowing her to make suggestions you may not have considered.

Asking Questions

When you are working with the expert seamstress for hire you may also have questions you want to ask. Often a good question to start with is to ask for suggestions of window coverings. Even if you have a preference allowing the professional to make suggestions may give you additional ideas. Just remember you will make the final decision and you should not feel pressured to choose their idea.

One you have discussed your ideas for interesting window treatments the seamstress may provide some pictures, sketches or mock-ups of how the window treatment will look. From this you can choose to make changes or go forward with the design. This is also a great time to look for those unique twists that will make your windows really stand out.

"The draperies that Sally designed and installed in our living room and dining room are timeless and elegant, and she helped make the whole process fun and carefree."
- Z. Elrod, Nashville, TN

"Sally created the perfect curtain for our front door. We wanted something that would give us some privacy but allow light in. The hour-glass shape is so flattering from the outside and also the inside. Sally is so easy to work with and her work is outstanding. I can't wait for Bellagio's to start our next project."
