Which window furnishings are best for my home?

Past masters or people in the know can pick their choice of window dressings immediately. They know what each one does and how it will look. Other customers are familiar with maybe one or two types of window furnishings, if at all. Reading through this section will help you in making the correct choice.

The decision on the type of product you buy will probably be based on one of three things:

Aesthetics: If you are not too bothered how it operates, you will probably look more towards style,colour match or design that will blend in with the theme or style of your decor. We sell virtually every type of window furnishing product available and have a wide range of fabrics, materials, colours and designs for you to choose from.

Fabric Functionality: Is the fabric “fit for purpose” in relation to the room it will be installed in?

  • Standard shade (blocks out the sun’s glare but lets some light in)
  • Water resistant/Fire retardant
  • Washable/cleanable
  • Light blockout/daytime privacy
  • Fade resistant
  • Heat reflective/retentive
  • UV protective
  • Noise absorption

Most individual fabrics contain a number of the above attributes.

Practicality: Looking for your product to operate in a certain way due to the configuration of your windows or doors? Concerned about the gather of the product? This website will demonstrate how each type of window furnishing operates. Looking at the style, checking if the fabric has the correct characteristics and the way your product will operate will lead you to make the correct purchase. Whether you need aesthetics, functionality, practicality or all three, desres is sure to have it! Please see Our Products page.
