There are many homes In Plano, Texas that need two story drapery treatments. 

 

The focal point of a room can be your two story window treatment.  The drapes can beautifully frame a window and also add softeness, color, and texture to a room.  Many homes in Plano, Texas, have high ceilings, lots of drywall and hard surface floors.  You will have the ability to greatly improve your acoustics if you have draperies.  You can also add artistic detail and drama to your room with your custom draperies.  The whole key is to have your draperies done correctly by a professional.

 

Draperies are one of the most artistic, creative and difficult areas of interior design.  It is a good idea to get help from a professional interior designer who will help  your draperies to be just right as well as beautiful.  

There are so many things to consider before deciding on a drapery treatment.  What style of draperies will work best with your look?  What style draperies will work best with your windows and what will work with the architecture of your home?

Tall window treatments can be elegant of informal.  Much of this will depend on the fabric that is chosen as well as the trim. Trims can be beads, crystals, fabrics, and other interesting things. 

Draperies should compliment your windows, not clash with them.  For instance, a curved topped window would look better with a window treatment with medallions that follows the architecture of the window, that is, that follows the curve.

This two story drapery treatment has beautiful fabric on wood  rods with decorative trim on the edges of the drapery panels.

I have seen way too many window treatments that swag down under the curve and look terrible from the outside and the inside.

Tall window treatments can be elegant or informal. Much of this will depend on the fabric that is chosen.

I have seen so many people waste money on draperies that were not designed and made right.  Custom draperies are expensive, but it is much cheaper than having to do them twice.
