How to keep your window treatments looking clean and new!
Jul 17th, 2014 by framecreations

Ever wonder how to keep your window treatments clean and looking new? We have the perfect tips to help you out!

It doesn’t take much to keep up with your window treatments, in fact, to keep your window decor looking beautiful, it is as simple as periodically dusting with a feather duster or vacuuming them with an upholstery attachment. In the case of a small stain or spot, easily just wipe the window treatment clean with warm water and a mild dish soap. 

As there are many different types of window treatments available, each have their own tailored cleaning procedure for best results. According to one of our top leading brands Graber, the best instructions for each type of window treatment is as follows:

Clean WT

Vertical Blinds—Vinyl Louvers:

  • Vinyl louvers may be removed and immersed in water for cleaning.  To eliminate static electricity, coat the louvers with a thin layer of mild detergent.

Vertical Blinds—Fabric Louvers:

  • These should not be immersed in water or dry cleaned.

Vertical Blinds Sheer:

  • Sheer fabrics are steam pressed during the manufacturing process, but may need to be re-steamed at a low temperature before hanging.
  • Be careful not to iron out the permanent pleats. Also make sure to remove the fabric from the louvers before steaming.
  • Sheer fabrics are machine washable. Use the gentle cycle with warm water and a mild detergent. (For best results, avoid chlorine bleach.) Hang damp fabric on the louvers and re-shape them. To dry, keep the louvers in the open position.

Wood Blinds:

  • For blinds with painted and stained finishes, clean with spray polish and a soft cloth. For best results, do not use water on any wood products.

Cellular Shades:

  • Strong detergents or spot removers may harm your cellular shades. Dry cleaning is also not recommended.
  • When deep cleaning is desired, you may wish to enlist a professional cleaning service


  • For minor dirt and stains, clean with warm water on a damp cloth. Wipe dry.
  • If more thorough cleaning is necessary, use a mild detergent diluted in water to a 5% solution and apply with a cotton cloth. Rinse area with plain water to remove any detergent residue and dry with a cloth.

Does your bathroom need an update?
Jun 23rd, 2014 by framecreations

The latest trend in newly remolded or built bathroom is not longer that of using draperies and curtains, it has now taken a step forward in that of  using wood blinds or shutters. This allows for one to keep light under control while also keeping this generally small space clean and fresh looking. These different window décor options can help bring style on an affordable budget and can match a plethora of different bathroom designs and decors.

Whether you are looking for a light color or darker tone, wood blinds and shutters come in a variety of different textures and color options. In addition, they are both also offered in a true wood or composite finish. The composite finish is selected by many as it allows for minimal warping over time and will not be negatively impacted by damp temperatures or conditions. Whether you prefer a traditional, contemporary, or eclectic style, wood blinds or shutters can add warmth and beauty to your bathroom or any living space! 

Let FRAME Creations help you update your bathroom with wood blinds or shutters today, and don’t forget, your first in-home consultation is free!

The exterior solar shade allows for light to come through, while blocking the deep glare of the sun and excessive heat from interrupting your time outdoors. The outdoor solar shades pair nicely with a motorized lift and make for easy access when varying height positions are desired. They come in a variety of different colors and textures, making it easy to match to any type of decor or outdoor setting.

Hanging Custom Framed Art!
Feb 9th, 2012 by framecreations

Hang  Smart!

FRAME Creations specialized in custom picture framing and custom window treatments.  We also hang art.  Here are a few tips.

Even the most beautiful pieces of framed art can still look awkward if they are not hung logically.  Some of the key considerations are:

1.  Choosing framed art that fits the space where it will hang.
2.  Hang frames in reasonably close proximity to the furniture below it to create unison.
3.  Hang frames at eye level for maximum viewing pleasure, keeping in mind people stand in foyers and halls and sit in many other spaces so that height can vary.

Also, be sure to coordinate your frames with your draperies.
