This Fall Budget Blinds truly became a one-stop shop for homeowners’ window covering needs when they added the Inspired Drapes line of drapery and hardware to their showroom. “We have always offered soft fashions for the windows including valances and cornices,” Budget Blinds co-owner Elaine Trotter said, “but many of our clients did not realize it. Now with Inspired Drapes we have a much wider selection of draperies, top treatments, and decorative hardware. Our new line of Inspired Drapes soft window coverings is a testament to Budget Blinds’ commitment to providing the best and most current window covering solutions available. The line offers complete flexibility in light, privacy control and fashion trends so a customer can get the best of both worlds in a single product.”

Now no matter how you want to cover your windows: blinds, shutters, shades, cornices, or draperies, Budget Blinds and Inspired Drapes can help you get the look you want. You can visit the showroom located at 1208 W. Fletcher Avenue in Tampa or have a free in-house consultation with one of the talented design specialists from Inspired Drapes. “We have clients that bring swatches, pillows, and even chairs into our showroom,” says Elaine. “We are happy to help you find fabrics and suggest drapery styles to match anything in your home. We also have a design specialist with years of experience who will come to your home free of charge, bring swatches and samples for you to look at and help you pick out something to fit your needs, your home, and your budget.”

In fact, this January, Inspired Drapes is introducing new lines and styles of drapes, valances, and hardware so if you want a new look for the New Year, now is a fabulous time to talk to their window covering experts about the latest trends in window covering design.

When you choose window treatments from Inspired Drapes, you know their beautiful stylish designs will be a wonderful accent to your home. They have thousands of fabrics of all different styles, colors, textures, and designs, so they are sure to have just the right fabric for your home.

Inspired Drapes consultants will measure your windows for you to ensure that the curtains or drapes you choose fit perfectly. They will also send out an expert installer to make sure your drapes not only hang the right way but that the hardware is installed correctly so you don’t end up with hardware hanging off your wall several months later. “There are many nuances to properly installing hardware for drapes or cornices,” says Elaine. “You would be amazed at how many people we get calls from who have hardware that is pulling out of the wall.”

In addition to luxurious drapes, Inspired Drapes also can brighten up your rooms with a lovely valance. “We see many people who want valances in their powder rooms or kitchen,” says Elaine. “It is a wonderful way to add a pop of color into a room. We also have many textures and styles you can choose from.”

No matter what the size of your windows, Inspired Drapes can help you out. Every drape, curtain, and valance is custom-made so they can fit even the oddest size windows and they can usually have it hanging in your home within six weeks or less.

When one of the expert designers from Inspired Drapes visits your home, she’ll talk to you about the room and how you use it and what type of look you want, she can help guide you through the choices to find ones that will be a perfect fit. After she’s measured your windows, she will give you a quote that includes not just the drapes or curtains but also an expert installer to make sure they are installed properly and look beautiful for years to come.

Just like Budget Blinds, Inspired Drapes offers many extra touches for their soft fashions. One unique addition is motorization, like one family chose for the curtains in their family media room. Now when they are ready to watch a movie, they can close their curtains with one touch of a button and since they have blackout curtains, they can watch movies anytime of the day. Window covering motorization allows you to eliminate harsh glare, save on energy costs, and protect your home furnishings. Motorization can easily be operated from a wall switch, hand-held remote, timer, or other smart device.
