I hear customers and friends mention projects they want to do but never get around to doing them. I always say these projects are what I am going to do when we get that next big snow storm and we can’t go anywhere. Well this is that big snow storm without the snow.
Make a list of the projects you want to do. Some things will be cleaning, sorting and grunt work. But some projects will be fun. What if we added a pretty fabric to the windows instead of just those practical blinds? What if we cleared all the junk out of this room? What if? Let’s make a list of the fun things.
Of course I love fabrics and window treatments so that is at the top of my fun list.
We can help you dream and plan for those projects through modern communications. Cell phones. FaceTime. Email.
If I could come to your home, we would stand in front of your windows talking. I would notice the size and shape of the window. I would ask you why you want something at the windows. Privacy? Comfort control summer and/or winter? Accent? Beauty? Do you need daytime privacy as well as nighttime privacy? Do you want the shades to lower and raise automatically as the sun changes direction, heating up your house in the summer? How do you use this room? And what are you keeping in this room that influences the window treatments?
It is easy to take pictures of your rooms and the windows. With your pictures in front of me on my computer, we could have this same conversation. We could have a wonderful discussion about what choices you might have and what would be best for you. I could direct you on measuring the windows. I could use those measurements to give you a quote. And I could make suggestions on what might work best for your lifestyle. I can send you links and memo samples to start this process. I could quote you a treatment that will fit your budget.
All this could be done as preliminary work so that when the stay at home order is lifted – and it will be! –you can get back to your busy life. We will take final measurements and you will have your window treatments decided and order ready to place.
Now that you are home every day and can really see your home in the daylight, it is the perfect time to plan what would make you happy every day.
