It is no secret that window treatments can enhance the décor of commercial or residential space. However, without the right knowledge, styling your windows can be challenging.
Here are a few tips for achieving that high-end designer window treatment look.

1. Layers are Great for Function and Aesthetics.

Layering your window treatments is a great way to create a soft designer look and even better for functionality. More than one layer of window treatments creates better insulation. This means you can keep in the heat in the winter and keep your air-conditioned home cooler for longer in the summer. 

Do not overdo the layers, however. This can create a cluttered look, while also dimming too much natural light causing any room to look darker and much smaller than it really is.

2.“Hang your Curtains high and wide.”

Hanging curtains closer to the ceiling and extending them out further than the window’s width is a great way to create the illusion of a bigger brighter room.

3. The Longer the curtain, the better.

Let those curtains lightly graze the floor or at least sit a half inch above it. 
Exceptions to this “rule” would include bathroom windows, kitchen windows, and doors with small windows. With these, you can allow the curtain to stop at the sill, or slightly below for a nice clean look.

4. One Size Does Not Fit All

Just because a window treatment solution looks great in one room, does not mean it will look great in all rooms. Change it up a bit to match the needs and style of each room.  

For example, solar shades may be the perfect solution for your living room, as they allow you to enjoy natural lighting in the day while still blocking harmful UV rays and keeping the solar heat gain down. 

However, in the bedroom, solar shades may probably let in too much light, this is where you could consider blackout shades for the perfect room darkening effect for a deeper and more restful night’s sleep.

This is a great place to go for anything you need for your windows! I worked with Kim, who was really knowledgeable about all the choices there were for the windows, and about interior design generally. The installers were skilled and the prices reasonable - I am so happy with how everything looks and that I walked into their store!

I was very pleased with the service we received from the New York Window Fashion Company. The quote to replace six shades in my apartment was very fair and they did a wonderful job. They came on time and cleaned up the work space beautifully. I would highly recommend this company. It was an absolute no brainer!

AMAZING!! We were fortunate to find (amongst all the choices that NY has to offer) NY Window Fashion, Yaniv Dahari, and the entire staff of NYWF. Words are inadequate to describe the excellent service we received. Yaniv provided attractive and useful design suggestions. The installers were efficient, polite, and clean. The follow-up was prompt and responsive.

I needed shades for my 2BR condo. I wanted black-out shades in bedrooms and motorized 95% shade in living room. I compared 3 shade installers... NYWF came out with the best price for exactly same materials, installation, and service. I was very thorough in my comparison.

I wanted some custom work done for my new apartments window shades, so I gave these guys a call and spoke to them a while about the exact design I was looking for (Im pretty picky). They said they got the just of what I needed so we scheduled an appointment for them to come by and show me the design as well as see what they were working with. They ended up doing an amazing job. The new custom shades look amazing.
