Hard Window Treatments are Easy

In the window coverings industry, there are both hard and soft "treatments".   Blinds, shades, and shutters would be in the former category, and most often provide a much needed light control function for a room.  Once that need is identified and defined, it is easy to know what product is best.
Of course, the many products available today are also gorgeous design choices as well - especially when paired with a beautiful soft treatment like drapery panels or an up to date valance.

The Coulisse nature collection is at the top of my list. Their XL pleated shades are also a designers dream. Each of their products is an exceptional upgrade to the traditionally styled shade or blind. (These amazing collections are now available at dePasquale Designs.)
