Comfortex's PowerTouch brand (a favorite of mine), for example, offers motorized shades at affordable price points that won't break the bank, making this amazing feature accessible to even the most of decorating budgets.

Custom Drapes for Every Window Size and Shape
With customized draperies, there truly is a style for every window–even those that are oddly shaped or hard to fit. No window is too wide or too tall to be decorated with a custom drapery treatment that adds drama and flair. The
Complete your newly decorated room with picture perfect windows.
If you're looking for ideas to add a dramatic finish to your newly decorated room, there's no better way than beautiful and stylish custom window treatments. Dressing your windows gives your room an extra special touch that truly reflects your personal style. But with so many treatments to choose from, how do you know what's right for your space?

From traditional to modern, draperies are the most flexible of all the window treatments, offering endless combinations of fabrics, lengths, patterns, and colors. Dress your windows in bold color for maximum contrast, or use a subtle neutral that will look lovely with any paint shade or furniture change. Pick fully operable drapes for maintaining heat and cold in the home, or a subtle decorative side panel for an accent of class and beauty.
