Michele Buckman has put together some videos discussing the current DC market and what the future may hold for the real estate market in the Washington DC area.
Unless your closest neighbor is miles away, there's a good chance that you need an element of privacy in your window treatments - especially if you live in downtown DC. Thankfully, there are a number of window treatments that not only provide privacy, but also add to the overall look of your home.
Shutters provide complete privacy and fit into nearly any decor, while top down/bottom up shades let you control the height of your blinds from either direction. Café-style curtains are hung below the top of the window, allowing sunlight to come through the top of the window, but adding privacy to the bottom portion of the window. Matchstick blinds allow light to filter into the room through the reeds, while stationery treatments such as non-closing drapery side panels are installed to be permanently in place.
