One of the best things you can do to give any room more style is to install new curtains. It is a sure fire way to add beauty and elegance to your home. You can work with a professional decorator but let me warn you, the prices are exorbitant to say the least. It is much better if you find curtains or drapes that you like and install them yourself. You can save literally thousands of dollars, and end up with as good or better quality than if you had used the high priced professional.
I have done some research on where to get the best deals and highest quality on curtains, drapes, and hardware for installation. There is an online site called Curtainworks that has a huge selection to choose from. Buy 2 items and save 10%. Its that easy but you have to order before 8/24/2010. Oh I know what you are thinking. You think you will save money on the order but lose it on shipping the order to your home. Guess again, there is always free shipping on orders of $100 or more. You can choose from many colors, styles, classic combinations, and even tailored curtains.
Any home or office will look rejuvenated and stylish when you put in the right curtains or drapes. When you buy new furniture or carpet is a good time to also replace curtains and drapes to match. Here is an idea for you. You just might save enough by not using the professional decorator to get part or all of the furniture.
