Dull window treatments or drapes?

Posted on Posted in Custom Drapery and Window Treatments, Drapery, Jacksonville, St Johns, Valance

So you've got a simple set of drapery panels as a window treatment.
Easy, classic and timeless design.
But after a while maybe they get a little boring.
How can you change it up without changing it all?
Here are some simple ideas to dress-up existing window treatments.

Overlays

Overlays are valances that hang over the drapery panel alone or across the drapery rod. They can be simple or dressed-up and even reversible!  Being easily removable makes this is a fun way to play with trendy or seasonal fabrics without a big commitment.

Banding

Banding is a great way to revive plain drapery panels. You can add a narrow (say 2-8 inch) band of fabric along the side edge of the drapery panel or a large (18-30 inch) band across the bottom. This works great on solid or small print fabrics to add color or a bolder pattern without being overwhelming.
