You might know them as blinds, shutters or curtains, but in the interior design world they are known as window treatments and they are an essential part of bringing any commercial or residential space in the Fort Lauderdale area together.
For whatever reason, in our many years in the interior design business, we have noticed that Fort Lauderdale residents don’t put much stock in their window treatments. They are more than happy to discuss all the usual dressings of any given room in their home or business but more often than not they stop short when it comes to their windows. We can’t help but think this is strange since window treatments have so many different and important functions.
Window treatments regulate UV rays and sunlight, they give our spaces some much needed privacy, but most of all they have the ability to transform the look and feel of a room. A window without window treatments can make the room feel incomplete and cold. If you are interested in injecting some warmth and style into your residential or commercial space, get in touch with Weiss Design Group Inc. today.

Choosing the Right Window Treatment
The right window treatment can help transform any space from drab to fab. However, with so many different options available on the market today, it’s common for residential and commercial clients to be weighed down by indecision. Our experience and eye for style makes selecting the right window treatment easy, but check out our review of your options below.
Curtains and Drapes
If you are partial to curtains and drapes, it’s important to think about both form and function. If you’re getting too much light or you’re trying to save energy, heavier or lined curtains are what you’re looking for. If you are looking to dress up a room then velvet or heavy silk might be perfect. Color, fabric, type of hardware needed to mount the curtains are all important considerations to make before getting too committed to a certain style.
People often use blinds and shades interchangeably, which is fair because they have a lot in common, but they also have some important differences. Both types of window treatments block out light and add privacy, but shades do not have slats or vanes. They are made of continuous pieces of fabric. They also come in a variety of styles, colors and materials.
Harder than shades, blinds can be found in wood, composite materials, aluminum, leather or vinyl. Slats come in a variety of lengths and widths and can be horizontal or vertical. Their versatility makes them a perennial favorite for residential and commercial clients.
