Yes. In fact for many windows we recommend that solution! Many home owners prefer to use a blind or shade to provide functional room darkening, glare control and energy efficiency (as well as beauty), then add draperies or a top treatment to make a personal fashion statement that complements their interior decor.

Window fashions are more complex than you might think. Many questions arise when we come to your home about how you will use your window fashions, how often you will operate them, whether you have children or pets in the home, what furniture might be placed in front of the window, etc. The Drapery Shop, Inc. knows how to ask the right questions to make sure your window treatments function for optimal performance and ease of use.

With many window fashions, exact (and knowledgeable) measuring and installation are critical, especially for inside mount situations and especially with hard, fitted products such as shutters. A measuring job done inaccurately can cost you lots of money if window fashions don’t fit correctly.

In addition, many homes have imperfections in window shape or protrusions that an expert installer can address up front to prevent window treatment problems later.

That depends on what products you order. All of our products are custom made to your exact specifications, and some take longer than others to produce and ship to us.

Once you place your order, The Drapery Shop, Inc. will keep you in the loop every step of the way so you know what to expect about the installation date.
