Choosing window treatments to "dress" your windows can be as big a decision as almost any other in your home. As your browse through our varied selections at House of Oak & Sofas, you will understand how the window treatment can change the character of the room quite dramatically. From open contemporary to cozy cottage, the right window treatments will often define the "feel" of the room, and the wrong window treatments will clash with the other elements in the room of your dreams. For instance, a 1-inch metal venetian blind has very little warmth to it, and therefore would be a poor choice for a room that is designed for "cozy, relaxation" but those same blinds might be perfect in a home office where sleek, simplified lines help reduce the clutter.

At House of Oak & Sofas, we think that looking seriously at these four factors is the first step in making the right decision about window treatment. Of course cost will also be important, since our window treatments run anywhere from $60 to $2,000. If you include hand-made treatments, of which we fabricate many in our own sewing room, the cost is higher than assembly-line manufactured goods. Also, the cost of any treatments using fabric can vary widely as our 30,000 fabric choices vary in price from $6 to $200 per yard and trim and metallic fringe costs per yard are similar.

Some windows are easy to "treat" or "dress" and others a bit more difficult. Over the last 20 years builders have been adding a lot of arched windows to make homes more interesting from the inside and out. These windows can be more difficult to "dress." However, in order to make the home more comfortable, to provide privacy, shading from the sun's glare, and aesthetic beauty, the design team at House of Oak & Sofas has found these practical ways to eliminate the problems presented by arched windows.
