Have you just moved into a new house and need immediate privacy?
Are you having trouble updating those outdated and sun-bleached draperies?
Can't figure out what to do with that oddly shaped window in the living room?

Choosing your new window fashions should be a pleasure, not a confusing chore. Hi my name is Mary Wilcox, owner of The Decorative Edge, and I'm ready to help!

Let's start by reviewing some of the important considerations when selecting your new window fashions:

1 Light Source Where the light is coming from is important. First make sure you know which direction your window faces. North light tends to be cold and clear, suggesting energy-efficient window treatments. Light from the south is warm and strong year-round, so you might choose light-diffusing window coverings to protect your furniture. If your winow faces east, bright, warm morning light calls for window coverings that block UV rays. And if light comes from the west, hot bright afternoons demand soutions that are both light controlloing and light diffusing.

2 Privacy Do you need full privacy from next-door neighbors or just a little screening from, say, the garage or a central air conditioner unit? I can help you find the degree of privacy you need.

3 Style Do you prefer a traditional or contemporary look? Relaxed or formal? Country warmth or urban sophistication? I can help you find the find the light changing power you want in the style you've set your heart on.

4 Color Whatever color or shade, tint or texture you want, you'll find it among the endless choices available.

5 Window Shapes From arches to angles, from circular windows to Palladians, I can help you find the convering that will complement any shape window.

6 Always within reach No matter where you windows are located, you can have the power to reach them easily and safely. Especially with new innovative remote control operating systems.

7 Energy Efficiency Fuel bills scary? Another powerful attraction of windows fashions: they are impressively energy efficient. So you can save on fuel bills while doing your part for the environment.

8 UV Protection Built-in ultraviolet protection gives you the power to block these harmful rays that fade carpets, discolor upholstery and degrade your finest possessions.

9 Safety Kids and/or pets and loose coords can spell trouble. That's why I offer operating systems and special features designed to make your home as safe as it is beautiful.
