When we first moved in to our own house in year 2003, we didn't opt for normal window cloth curtain but shades which were very uncommon to be used at home back then. I actually love to decorate my windows with cloth curtain as i just loved those fancy curtains especially the curtain with tassel fringes. But those days were quite a tough day for us since we didn't have much saving in the bank account after getting married and moved into a double storey house. So, hubby suggested perhaps we could have Roman Shades for our windows. Since hubby was worked in blinds and shades company last time, nothing sounds as attractive since he could get staff price on those shades.
Since then, i doted on shades very much and started to introduce shades to my friends. I was initially thought that it's difficult to clean the shades, but, actually, cleaning the cloth curtain is much more difficult than cleaning the shades. That is why i am planning to do little Window Treatments for my current staying apartment. Perhaps you would say it is not wise to have Roller Shades here since this apartment is not our property and we will not staying in here for long, but since hubby will still be here for another few years, so a little decoration for my apartment's windows is a must. Actually, a lot of modern houses also choosing shades, so, who said blinds and shades only perfect for offices?
