Tips on buying new window coverings

Before you buy new window coverings make sure you ask the right questions to get the full value of your dollar.

  • Ask if the fabric was pre-shrunk. Some fabrics can shrink in the home due to the humidity
  • Ask if the prints or designs are coulourfast. Some colours can fade or bleed when cleaned.
  • Ask for care instructions. The manufacturer can recommended the best care method for the fabric
  • Ask about which fabrics are suitable to specific areas in your home. Drapes for your kitchen will likely be made of a different fabric than the drapes for your bedroom. Drapes to be hung in highly sunny windows should be lined to prolong their life
