Custom Window Treatments

At Young Design Group we specialize in custom window treatments and it is a primary focus of our business as bare windows are impractical. Windows need to offer privacy, shade from the outside elements and most of all, they finish your room beautifully. We offer a vast variety of decorative soft window treatments from draperies, side panels, roman shades and top treatments. We are also agents for Hunter Douglas and other high quality hard window fashion brands, and can offer advice on motorization throughout the home.

Draperies & Curtains

Having the correct window treatments depend on several factors: the room, the shape of the window and its position to the sun, the style you prefer, and the drapery’s purpose.

Window treatments will last for many years and serve many purposes — they keep the sun out and the warmth in; they help protect your floors, rugs and furniture from fading; they add pizzazz to any room, completing the space.

They can be practical too. Today’s fabrics offer room darkening options for people who work shifts such as firefighters, police, or medical staff. Also, many fabrics are stain proof — perfect defense against kids and pets!

If you prefer a simple look, we can hang stationary drapery panels each side of the window, framing it, usually in combination with a blind or shade. Adding embellishment such as fringe or contrasting tape will change the mood of the room from formal to romantic to casual.

In a traditional home you may require more layers of draperies to achieve a sophisticated design. And at every stage Cassy will be taking the harsh sun into account.

Top Treatments

Full length draperies are not suitable for every application because in a kitchen they may get dirty; in a bathroom there may not be floor space. But in most cases Cassy can design a top treatment that will soften the hard edges of a window, hide the mechanics of another layer, and to draw focus to the window.

There are several choices of top treatment to explore:

  • Cornice boards
  • Valances
  • Balloon shades
  • Swags & cascades
  • Lambrequins
  • Awnings

You can further embellish a top treatment with custom trim that will add an interesting and individual look to the finished product.

Blinds, Shades & Shutters

Whether you’re moving to a new home or updating your existing home, the first thing you’ll want to do is cover the windows for privacy.

Call window treatment specialist Cassy Young who will demonstrate the many different styles of blinds, shades and shutters, and discuss the pros and cons of each, for your windows.

Cassy can also discuss motorization options, important for homes with tall walls and high windows.


We were very happy to work with Cassy on a project in our dining room. With floor to ceiling windows, we needed curtains to help keep the light and summer heat from penetrating the windows. Cassy had a challenge to match or complement our existing living room curtains. We were very pleased with the time and care she spent reviewing options, planning the project, and the careful installation by her friendly installer. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Cassy again, and we look forward to future projects with her.” Gordon M.
