New window treatments and accessories give you a fresh, new look without the cost of a total redo

The economy has many people scrambling to keep costs down and often that means they're staying at home more and spending less on outside entertainment.

It's a great time to focus on what makes you comfortable at home. Simply changing out your window treatments, adding a new valance over existing treatments, or putting a splash of new color on your sofa or your bed with bright, cheerful throws and pillows can provide you with a great new look without breaking the bank.

Maybe you're draperies are looking tired. A new valance or cornice can frame them and provide a striking accent to what you already have. The addition of sheers under the draperies will give you a softer, more light filtered look and that creates a whole new ambiance in the room. A coverlet and new shams can give your bedroom a fresh update.

By changing only a few things, or layering over what you already have, you can have a fresh new look with a small investment.
