Window treatments from these days are very different from our grandmother’s old ones. Practically mandatory, those thick, heavy and unattractive curtains are now replaced with lighter, decorative layered treatments, which comes in various styles and have a huge palette of contemporary hues so that they can be customized according to our taste and the overall home’s design. Modern window treatments are less heavy, more natural and offer a wide range of curtains, panels, over-the-top draperies, streamlined shades, blinds and shutters , that look amazing on their own and fit the unique size of your space.
