[Inara Trend Design | Interior Design] —- Draperies for Basements | Home Design Inspiration
Draperies for Basements – Draperies for Basements – as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Hi, my name is Jeff Simko with Superior Roman Shades. Sometimes we get asked to fabricate a basement for your home, and a lot of times designers ask us to create a ‘man-cave’, or a theater room.
Have you ever come across a design dilemma you just don’t know how to solve? That’s how it is with our basement window coverings. I was recently down in the basement packing up Chloe’s American girl dollhouse and accessories that she no longer plays with (*insert tears*), and I got to thinking about those basement windows which have always been a bit of an eye sore.
Well, we can create an intimate setting with ceiling-mounted drapery panels, and we can remote those drapery panels even through an iPad, such as this. So right now, you are witnessing the drapes kind of encompassing the room for you and your family.
Any room can really be a media room – whether it is a basement or maybe a guest bedroom that you want to convert into a media room, it is easy and it is doable. Another great way to use draperies is to conceal storage or maybe a media screen. Nothing says “media” like fabric draperies. So these are some window treatment options for your basement, even if it does not have any windows.
If you want to preserve light but add privacy and softness, a fabric window covering is another option. Tanya created this DIY window covering for the awkward window in her guest bedroom but I think it’s a great solution for awkward basement windows as well. She used two tension rods and fabric sewn with pockets at the top and bottom. Ruching the fabric adds some privacy and interest. She also tried the window treatment without the bottom rod so head to her blog post to see that option and the DIY tutorial.
