Custom Window Treatments

At Young Design Group we specialize in custom window treatments from the simplest side panels to intricate drapery designs. Bare windows are impractical – windows need to offer privacy, shade your furnishings and floors from outside elements and most of all, they are the stylish finish to any space. Many people are either intimidated by the choices, may think draperies are an indulgence, or think they are totally unnecessary. Cassy will demonstrate that once you have custom window treatments, you’ll understand their importance. Our relationship with design franchise company Decorating Den Interiors also gives us a selection of  top hard window coverings from brand names such as Hunter Douglas. If your project is a bedroom, we have semi-custom and custom bedding too.

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, “finishing” it off.

They can be practical too. Today’s fabrics offer room darkening options for people who need to sleep during the day. Also, many fabrics are stain proof  — perfect defense from 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.

This guest bedroom is inviting for any visitor with custom shades for privacy.

Simple Window Treatments

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 treatment that will soften the hard edges of a window, hide the mechanics of another layer, and draw your eye to the window.

The guest bedroom shown here is tiny with no space for draperies but with a bank of windows. The challenges Cassy solved with these pretty Natural Woven Shades were light control, privacy and visual interest.

There are many choices to explore:

  • Cornice boards
  • Valances
  • Roman shades
  • Hard window treatments
  • And many more

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

Challenging Windows

Cassy can also help with difficult shaped windows, such as the slanted windows and draperies shown here.

Bay windows offer the perfect placement for a small seating area or reading nook while taking advantage of the views outside your home. However, due to their shape, bay windows can sometimes cause measuring and installation issues for homeowners. Young Design Group is able to design custom bay window treatments that match the style of your windows and your home.

Tall windows can also pose difficulties so hiring a design professional is again a sensible decision for a homeowner because Cassy has the resources for certified window treatment installers for an expert fit.

The possibilities are endless and we are here to help you every step of the way. Once we have selected the right window treatment for you, Cassy will take all the measurements, place the orders and our talented fabricators will get to work to ensure that the designs are built to your specifications.
