Typical Installation Times For Custom Window Treatments

Window Decorating Ideas For Holidays - FabricsFirst of all, when do you want your window treatments installed? If it’s next year, we’ve got some time to kill.

If it’s in two months, we better get started!

There are numerous factors that come into play with installation times for custom window treatments, some of which are out of your control.

However, there is a ton you can control for a quicker installation time.


Preparing For Your Design Consultation

Knowing exactly what product, style, material, or color you want before your design consultation is going to make a world of difference in your timeline.

Shipping Times Vary by Product

These timelines are an average based on previous orders and research. Shipment times are defined by the day they were ordered until the day they are delivered.

Please give us 1-2 days to process the delivery and allow for us to schedule an installation. Physically installing the window coverings can also take 1-2 days depending on the size of the project.

Additional Processing Time For Window Treatments

When ordering anything, sometimes you run into unexpected delays.

From workers going on strike to natural disasters, we’ve seen it all and delays can happen that are out of yours and our control…but not all!

No one ever hopes these events happen, but we try our best to plan for them.

We try our best to leave extra time for shipping, which often results in the order arriving before we promised.

The size of your project, adding motorization, and the amount of customization you request may result in longer installation times. Now don’t give up on your dream window coverings, just know that custom craftsmanship takes a bit more time.

If you learned one thing in this blog post, we hope it is to plan ahead to ensure you meet your timeline!

My wife wants to design her own window treatments. I like how you mention having an idea of what style, material, or color you want before the design consultation. Thank you for the advice.

I didn’t realize that blinds and shades could be installed that quickly. We just moved into a new home, and currently do not have any window treatments. I will have to decide what coverings I want, and work on getting things installed.
