Answer: In some cases
Explanation: If you buy high quality coverings in neutral colors the answer is yes. If you buy cheap coverings people will just want to remove and replace them. Buy neutral draperies, roman shades, fabric roller blinds and high quality shutters if you want potential buyers to be attracted and pay more.

Answer: In some cases
Explanation: Window treatments may not actually increase the value, but they may help you to get a higher sales price for your home based on the aesthetics when potential buyers view the home. There are some cases when plantation blinds or shutters that are quite expensive will increase the value. One other scenario in which the window treatments may have an effect on price is when there are specially sized windows that may be difficult to find blinds or drapes for, requiring specialty pieces.
