The term “window draperies” can sound a bit dated. But, their aesthetic could not be more current! Regardless of your home style, custom drapes on the windows always offer a grown-up, completed look. But, they can do more for your home than make it lovely—they work for you.

Check out these 5 benefits of window draperies with Worley’s Home Design Center here in the Hayward, CA, area:

  1. They’re thermal
    Yes, we live in Central California and we do not often experience cold weather. But, when we do—draperies work in your favor. The flipside is that they are excellent at keeping in your conditioned air instead of allowing your home to be heated-up by the sunlight and outside heat against the window.
  2. They elevate the look of your home… and your mood
    Window Draperies are not simply a vanity thing—this can actually affect your mood at home! When homeowners live in a space that feels beautiful, comfortable, complete—their moods are brought up, too!
  3. They are versatile and they pull a room together
    When you work with Worley’s, your home will transform into something you can be proud of. Together, we will look at your home’s architecture, the colors you currently have in the room/space, the type of furniture you have/intend to purchase, and so much more. Our custom drapes are designed with the whole room/space in mind. This means a so-so room can come to life and money you have spent on furniture or wall hangings will finally be tied together, seamlessly. Further, using drapes in multiple rooms helps to tie together design elements throughout your home.
  4. They fit
    Of course, you can go to a department store and purchase generic draperies in an assortment of colors or materials—but they will never be as good as drapes designed specifically to match your personality, your home’s measurements, and your overall “look.” Choosing to work with our professionals means you will get exactly what you want and the drapes will fit your windows
  5. They are durable
    Custom window draperies and top treatments can last as much as two or three times as long as the ready-made curtains you buy off the shelf in the store. Our professional craftsmanship will stand the test of time.

Here at Worley’s Home Design Center, we know window draperies. In fact, many of our favorite design experiences have included working with homeowners in Hayward to make their homes beautiful and comfortable with our fabulous custom curtains and cornices. There is something uniquely inviting and comforting about beautiful, quality draperies in the home—but, as you can see, they offer so much more! If you are considering a home re-designing project in the near future, we would love to work with you. Whether you need custom drapes, new flooring, an upgraded kitchen, furniture restoration… We are your one-stop-designing-shop and we hope to work with you soon!

There are a lot of options for window coverings these days. One of the most popular—and has been for quite some time, is the window shutter. Unlike other styles that are cheap or “in” for a couple years and then “out” the next, shutters have been around forever—and they’re here to stay.

So, what’s the excitement with window shutters here om Hayward, CA? It seems to be that the rise of nostalgic, country-chic home designs has positively impacted the demand for shutters nationwide. They are practical, beautiful, durable investments to the home.

Here at Worley’s Home Design Center, our specialty is to make home beautiful and functional. Here’s how shutters with us accomplish that!

Shutters = beauty.
Interior shutters are unique. They give the home an artsy, completed look like very few other window coverings can. For example, blinds and shades are often meant to “blend in” to the décor; disappear, more or less. Shutters are meant to make a statement, if so desired. They add a warmth to any room without disappearing or over-imposing.  Further, there are countless stains, color choices, finishes so you can achieve the exact aesthetic you want.

Shutters = investment.
Window shutters are an investment for homeowners in many ways. For starters, quality shutters (like ours here at Worley’s) will last you many years, saving you time and money in home improvements. Beyond their quality, their nostalgic and artsy aesthetic grants them a timelessness you may not find with other options (which keeps them relevant). Finally, window shutters can actually increase the resale value of the home significantly! How? They are a permanent addition to your home—they stay with the home even if you move which increases the value (as long as they’re in good shape!).

Shutters = strong.
Hunter Douglas is a name most know these days because they are designed for superior durability. In fact, they are at the top-of-the-line in the shutter manufacturing industry and Worley’s is proud to offer their products to the homeowners of Hayward. We offer wood and vinyl shutters in a variety of designs and colors, too. 

Shutters = light options.
In rooms you wish to have darkened, shutters can block out more light than many other window treatment options. And, the light can be filtered in different directions by rotating the louvers at different angles. Don’t want the sun in your eyes but still want some natural light? Perfect.

Here at Worley’s Home Design Center, we are excited to offer you beautiful window shutter options. We want you to choose your own look while we act as your co-designer. The style of your home—or the style you are hoping to achieve with your home—is important to us; just as important as your opinion and budget! Our staff will handle the nitty-gritty (so you can enjoy the process): quotes, measurements, a stress-free installation, an appropriate timeline for the installation project, answers to any questions/concerns, etc. We look forward to working with you!

There are stats which tell us Americans spend a good majority of their time in the kitchen. We gather there for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack time, birthdays, holidays, homework, family game night, midnight secret trips to the fridge while everyone is asleep… It is true—we are in our kitchens often. After all, it is the heart of the home!

That said, the heart of the home should also be the most lovely, useful, and welcoming space, should it not? We think so! Here at Worley’s Home Design Center, we think your kitchen cabinets are the backdrop to every memory you will make in your kitchen with loved ones. You should have exactly what you want—and our team would love to help you get that!

Many homeowners in San Leandro have cabinets they don’t want, though. Usually, this is due to financial constraints in the past, or a previous owner who chose an undesirable design or quality. Whatever the reason, our professionals are in the business of making it right for you!

Here are the five most common reasons residents in San Leandro choose to remodel their kitchen cabinets with Worley’s:

  1. Cramped space = bad for your health! Does your kitchen feel dysfunctional? Do you feel cramped in it? If you can relate to this, chances are good that you are not preparing healthy meals as often as you should be. In fact, the less spacious a kitchen is can directly correlate to the healthy eating habits of a home’s inhabitants. Expanding your kitchen cabinets and storage space can help free-up space. It’s worth considering.
  2. Safety concerns. Close to half of household accidents occur in the kitchen; accidents like bumping into another family member with a hot pan or spilling food on the floor, etc. Address this with one of our designers so you can create a kitchen layout more conducive to your needs.
  3. Kitchens are non-negotiable. Your kitchen and your bathroom are the only two rooms in the home which must So, ask yourself if your space makes sense for everyone who uses it. Perhaps your children will be more interested in helping cook if the kitchen makes sense for them (i.e.: easy to reach utensils, appropriately placed cabinets, useful center islands with additional cabinetry, etc.).
  4. The kitchen sets the tone for the home. Like it or not, your kitchen tells your guests everything they need to know about you and your household. Is it inviting or cramped? Chaotic or calm? Organized or messy? The right cabinets and storage space speak volumes.
  5. $$$. A kitchen remodel and new cabinets is a significant investment in your asset. Even if you aren’t interested in selling in the near future, your kitchen and the cabinets have the power to positively or negatively sway the value for the property. And, if you do plan to sell—you really do need to have your kitchen upgraded to get the most bang for your buck.
