Going For Less

At times, when you look around the mall or the Internet, you may be tempted to purchase what’s on sale or what’s the cheapest window treatments. Before doing so, you have to ask yourself, “Would these be appropriate for my windows?” or “Would these suit my home’s interior design?” Some tapestry or coverings might not have the accurate measurement of your window.

Picking The Wrong Hardware

Window hardware serves as a foundation for your window treatments. If not carefully chosen, you will come across problems with installing your window treatments. Wrong hardware will also damage your walls in the long run.

Doing Do-It-Yourself Projects
