Dated Valance Gets Makeover in Glen Ellyn IL – A Fairy Tale Ending

Fabric Swatches

“I have a valance that needs to be updated” was what this client in Glen Ellyn, Il said when she called us. The window coverings were the last step in a project that included new paint and crown molding in their new home. This valance had once been perfect. Although, it takes a long time for the right custom drapery or top treatment to go out of style or become dated, they do and this one had.

It was once the perfect addition to the living room, but the other updates in the home simply made it look old and out of place. To my client’s surprise, she learned that her husband liked the existing valance even less than she did, and he was also ready for a change.

Mixing Window Treatments In The Home

Often clients find us through social media. Consumer’s count on the experiences of others to determine which companies they should invite in their home. This was the case when a young couple in a new custom home in Hinsdale, IL gave us a call. Having clearly done their research, this couple had an idea of what they wanted in terms of product and look. It was important to not have anything that looked cheap, but also not to go crazy with purchasing the most expensive window coverings for every window in the home. This is an outstanding approach for a client-provider relationship. We will work with you to determine what look works for your home and then which product will get you in your price range.

Our suggestions for this young couple were based on getting the most glamorous look and impact when you first enter the home – an open floor plan in front of a complete wall of windows. We selected vertical Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers and their horizontal companion Silhouette® Window Shadings across the entire back of the home. It is gorgeous!
