We are immersed in window coverings 24/7 at Sunshine Drapery, and find it easy to start speaking “window” as if everyone were as intimate with the lingo. Window Speak is a new series that will deliver installments into different window covering terminology. If there is a topic that you would like us to cover please let us know.
