Get Your Home Holiday Ready with Custom Window Treatments
By: Kristin Scott
Voted Columbia Living’s 2019 Best of Columbia in the category of window treatments and design, Bella Eleganza is the first stop for many when looking to add shade, privacy, or simply the designer touch to their windows. With over 12 years of experience, owner Courtney Baudo Golder provides her clients with custom window treatments designed to fit their budgets, lifestyles and individual tastes.
Golder started her business at just 24, with the encouragement of her father. She toured plants throughout the United States in search of just the right manufacturers to supply her business. Her clients are confident in the knowledge that their treatments are American made and installed by a company that knows the products, the process by which they are made, what could go wrong, and what to do if it does.
The choices are many. There are motorized and manual options, including roman shades, woven wood and bamboo, soft drapery and drapery hardware, porch shading, custom cornices, panel tracking, wood and vinyl shutters, custom arches, wood and faux wood blinds, transitional and roller shades, and more.
Clients who’ve made the decision to work with Bella Eleganza can expect Golder herself – an international certified window design and color specialist – to come to their home and personally design the right window treatments for their specific wants and needs. When she arrives, Golder is prepared with a portfolio of ideas for designs as well as a collection of patterns she currently has available to clients. She takes the time to survey a space, looking for clues into personal style as well as lifestyle – both very important when determining an interior design. She then customizes treatments based on likes, wants, and needs. “I like to visit my clients’ homes before I get to work, so I can pick up their personalities,” says Golder. She even uses a seamstress who specializes in window treatments to bring her creations to life. Pet friendly options are also available.
Bella Eleganza’s services do not stop at indoor window treatments. Outdoor solar options are also available, including shading and full enclosures falling inside a channel system that can be opened or closed manually or with a motor – providing many options to limit a home’s exposure to sun, heat, and cold.
If you are in the market for custom window treatments or outdoor shading options, reach out to Bella Eleganza. Consultations and estimates for hard treatments are free. Design consultations for soft treatments are $50 per hour and typically last one hour. Your emailed estimate will include a variety of options at different price points to ensure you are working within your budget.
