Nate Berkus Sheds Light on Window Treatments, Once and for All

Ask any regular homeowner uninitiated to the world of interior design what the most confusing part of decorating is, and we bet you that window treatments will be a prominent answer. Curtains, shades, and blinds have been boggling the minds of people everywhere, and it’s not hard to see why. From measuring to hardware style, fabrics, and types of pleating—the decisions that come with dressing a window are seemingly endless. What’s more—if you put more than a little thought into it, it can be a significant investment.

To shed light on the world of window treatments once and for all, we asked our go-to interior design expert, Nate Berkus. With over 20 years of design experience, a flawless sense of style, and a new line of fabrics for The Shade Store, we could think of no better person for the task. We tackled everything from fabrics to patterns and from hardware to types of mounts to make your window treatment decision-making a breeze—even though the designer himself and his husband, interior designer Jeremiah Brent, don’t always agree. Don’t plan your window treatments without reading this. Whether you’re renting or in your forever home, there’s a solution for everyone.
