Window top treatments can be tailored or free-flowing, elegant or casual, simple or ornate. A top treatment can be used alone to soften the window frame and add color and style. Often, though, window top treatments are the finishing touch over curtains, draperies, shades, or blinds, where they not only embellish the look but hide clunky lift mechanisms or other hardware.
Top treatments are very popular DIY projects. They take relatively little fabric, time, or sewing experience, but add a lot of decorating style to a room.
