You may be under the impression that when it comes to curtains in Philadelphia, there aren’t a lot of options besides changing the color and length, but you’d be mistaken. Window treatments are an art in themselves, and can completely change the look and feel of a room, depending on what you choose.

If you want to add luxury, style or simply want to add an interesting new accent to a room, consider combining these window treatments with your new curtains.

Varied Window Treatment Options

Wooden or Fabric Pelmets

A pelmet is a border that covers the fittings of your curtains. This way, if you don’t want the rings or hooks to be visible, a pelmet may be a good option for you.

Depending on your preferences, you can choose to have a fabric pelmet or a wooden one. A fabric pelmet is often created in the same color and pattern as your curtains. But if you want to try a mismatched fabric trend, or want to mix a plain style with a pattern, you’ll be able to do this with a fabric pelmet too. Fabric pelmets can be straight or shaped, depending on the aesthetic you’re going for.

Wooden pelmets are simply wooden versions of their fabric equivalents. They don’t have to be simple in design. You can also have your wooden pelmet shaped into an attractive pattern if you prefer, or have it painted or papered to go with your room.

Varied Swags

Swags are a fabric window treatment that’s hung above a window to both add aesthetic value and make your window appear larger. They are usually designed to obstruct as little light as possible, and are hung over two small curtain panels.

You may choose to combine a swag with blinds as well as curtains, if you want to keep the look of an open curtain while still retaining the ability to shut out light.

Swags may either have a simple layout, or gathered for a more traditional look. Similarly to pelmets, swags can either be in matching fabrics or differing ones.

An Interesting Valance

A valance can either be hung with side panels or alone, which makes them a great choice for people who want the look of fabric without taking away from the natural light in their windows.

A valance is an excellent accent to a room, as you can choose to have it made in a subtle shade and style, or opt for a bold one for a focal point.

If you’d like to dress your windows differently, and are interested in curtains and window treatments, contact a reputable supplier in Philadelphia for information and advice.
