1. Think of your needs and what you want to achieve with your window treatments.
Do you need privacy during the day or night or both? Do you need to consider warmth and insulation? Are you wanting to cut down the glare and heat of the mid-day sun? Your consultant can discuss all of your needs and provide the best solutions for your home.
2. Consider different options for different rooms.
You could opt for a beautiful fabric in your main living areas and then a well priced option in your guest bedroom.
3. Is this your ’Dream Home’ or will you be moving on?
If you are hoping to stay, spend a little bit more to create a look you absolutely love, and that will stand the test of time. If you may be selling up in the near future, still choose something you love, but also consider the overall cost, and suitability for a different family.
4. Trust your consultant.
Choose someone who listens to you, who you are comfortable with, who can share your vision and work with you to bring that vision to life. You may not be able to visualise the finished product, but your consultant can. You just need to trust them.
