Bay windows are beautiful spaces in a home that can be perfect for a relaxing night of reading or just right for pondering.  During a nice day, it’s a good spot to bask in some sunshine.  Add the perfect touch to your beautiful bay windows with a nice set of curtains and drapery medallions.  The positioning of the windows may look a bit daunting, since there is more than one panel to tend to, but with the right approach and the right drapery medallions, the task can be just as easy as working with a regular window.

If your bay window has seats, make sure to choose a set of curtains short enough to graze the seats.  Otherwise, you can opt for full-length curtains that hang to the floor.  Drapery medallions make the task of hanging your curtains 100 times easier than traditional curtain rods and add an additional touch of flair and aesthetic value to your bay window area.  To vie our full line of drapery medallions for bay windows, visit our online showroom at www.metroiron.net.

Spring is starting to show it’s signs throughout the country, a welcome sign to many in the north that have dealt with unbearable cold and record setting snowfall totals.  As the robins invade and crocus pop through the ground, many people are planning their gardens and outdoor area for the spring and summer of 2014.  One of the hottest trends in outdoor design is garden rooms.  Garden rooms can be incredibly simplistic to overly luxurious, but all aim to bring the indoor out and provide an outdoor area to relax, meditate and entertain.

Garden rooms generally feature some type of awning top and four sides, although the styles can vary greatly.  Simplistic garden rooms can involve something as easy as four posts with curtain walls and a curtain top while luxurious garden rooms, like that pictured, can feature more intricate details and style.  Regardless of your budget and space constraints, aim to create a garden room that will be a place where you will be comfortable and tranquil.

Choosing curtains and drapery hardware for your garden room should be one of the most important factors of planning your outdoor garden room.  Choose a curtain and/or awning that is weather resistant and will be able to withstand a few summer seasons of heat, sun and rain.  This also holds true for drapery hardware.  Select a hardware that is made of weather resistant materials that will allow for multiple seasons of outdoor use.
