Pricing for Custom Work

All our window treatments are made to order. You can calculate prices for curtains or Roman shades here & add up what you want for a final cost, but please feel free to contact us for an estimate. Roller shade pricing is on the roller shade web page. Applique design prices are also here, but please see the stencil page for pricing & information if you would like to add a stencil to your window treatments. If you'd like a custom design, we can do that as well. Pricing for cushions is here as well, but you should refer to our custom cushion page for more information and ideas.

Use the Work Sheet to calculate your costs or use it as a check list and call us for an estimate. Your order will include a labor cost for basic construction as well as special items such as pin stitched hems or applique labor. As well as a materials cost for your fabric (see Swatch Card). Hardware to go with a curtain order is also a separate item. It is quite likely you will need to contact us and we expect this for custom work. CUSTOM WORK IS NOT RETURNABLE, SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK QUESTIONS.

CUSTOM DESIGNS....a service for whatever you need... All our designs are made to order. You select the colors and fabric, top and hem finish, and fullness that's best for you and, of course, our curtains are made to order for any odd-sized windows. Our custom design service is for something a bit extra. We can create a custom design by mail or fax from photocopies, sketches or any information that you can provide. For a small design fee, we will submit color sketches for your approval, along with itemized costs.

Here's how it might work:

You have a lovely stained glass window. You need curtains for your front windows and you would like something that works with your stained glass and shows off the natural woodwork of your window frames. You'd like to let in as much light as possible. After a phone consultation, you send us snapshots of your room with a close up of the stained glass and the front window, some swatches of your upholstery fabric and window measurements.

With your information in hand, we call you with some questions on details. Within 2-4 weeks, we send you a full scale sketch with recommended fabric swatches, yardage estimates and construction specifications and costs. You are pleased with our design, but you ask us if we could change one color. We send another swatch for your approval. You approve the design, and we start making your curtains.

In about six to eight weeks (depending on the size of the order), you receive your curtains and hardware with complete installation and maintenance instructions.
