Remodeling your windows can be a time of blending existing treatments with new custom ones that will shape the style of your window. Since window treatments like drapes, blinds, or other shades near a stove or sink absorb the odors and the residue left behind after cooking meals, the opportunity to be creative in finding a window treatment that works is important.
