The window is often the first place your eye goes to because it carries a strong vertical line and lets in light. At Blinds & Designs serving Marin County, we are happy to help our customers determine what window treatments will help them make the best impression of their home.
Tips Before Choosing Window Treatments
- A window should always be treated last. If you treat the windows before the furnishings are in place, you will always over-treat a window.
- Once your other furnishing are in place, if you feel like the window is missing something, then other treatments can be considered.
- Before adding color on a window, get a sheet, a few yards of the color you are thinking about, and live with it for a week or so to make your decision.
- Once you have treated the window, it is easy to add to it, but if you put a lot on the window all at once, it could be expensive to change it.
One Shade For Day & Night

How It Works
Duolite™ is offered on Duette® Honeycomb Shades, Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades, Alustra® Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades, Applause® Honeycomb Shades, and pleated shades.
