We've just purchased our first home and we can't afford to do everything at once. How do we make sure our window treatments won't be out of style before we can finish decorating the whole house?

Window blinds, shades and shutters are classic treatments that never go out of style. They're not just attractive, they're also highly functional. The beauty of these types of products is that they will add style to your rooms and provide light control and privacy. Then, as you add new furnishings you can add fabric style treatments to your windows to coordinate all of the decorative elements in your room. Many new homes are decorated in phases, so starting with items that may seem only functional makes a lot of sense because these products will last as long as you own your home.
