Design Advice by Marion Bianchini
Top Design Consultant Marion Bianchini dishes on how and where to save on window fashions
Whether it’s ‘blinds on a budget’ or ‘drapery on a dollar’, when choosing budget-friendly window treatments there are many things to consider.  First, you should always consult a window treatment expert, such as a Design Consultant, because they can offer numerous creative money-saving ideas. And if you’re feeling hesitant to wade into new window fashion territory, don’t worry-  there are many design options that will look beautiful on a budget.
“Faux” both value and style…Look to Faux Wood Blinds

For imparting the natural look and warmth of genuine wood, at an affordable price, consider the host of benefits that come standard with Faux Wood Blinds. Faux wood blinds are both durable and versatile, and are remarkably moisture resistant, making them the perfect window fashion for any room, including high moisture living spaces such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Roller Shades offer sleek styling without the need for a budget “amendment”

Roller shades are another economical option. With a variety of price points to fit nearly any budget, Roller Shades can help realize your vision of custom designed window fashions.  From over-the-top elegance to casual chic, Roller Shades come in a variety of beautiful fabrics to transform the look of your space. They are often made of poly blend fabrics that are not only gorgeous to look at but also clean-friendly and low maintenance. Check with your Design Consultant for the most affordable options.

Be choosy when choosing where to adorn your window treatments

Regardless of the type of window treatment you select, consider using the more dramatic, premium fabrics for the common areas where you spend the most time, and use lower priced, economical window fashions and/or fabrics for lesser used rooms.

“Staging” your project helps save your décor dollars

Another option you may consider is doing your home in stages.  Start by selecting the highest priorities first, such as your bedroom and/or bathrooms. Follow these at a later date and design the areas that can wait a month or two.  Choosing this option calls for a dose of patience, but you are more likely to get the rooms of your dreams!

Again, the best advice is to consult an expert, since they can show you the many options that will complement your home, pleasing you and your family for years to come.
