Benefit 1: Breathtaking Fabrics

For some people, a window treatment is just a window treatment. It is there to provide shade and privacy and nothing else. However, for many of us, our window treatments have a style and add to our interior décor – an extension of our inner creativity. That is, window treatments allow us to show off a bit of our personality through how we design them. That is why one of the benefits of Designer Banded Shades that they offer breathtaking fabrics that can be customized to your liking. Designer Banded Shades come in three different band heights for a variety of window shapes, as well as stunning colors, textures, and geometric patterns for you to choose from. You can even peruse our light-filtering and room-darkening opacities to give you complete control over the light coming into different rooms in your home. We can show you popular colors like sandy neutrals, pops of bold color, and spa-like tones that will match any room in your home.
