Shipment times are defined from when the ordered was placed to when the order arrives. There is an extra day or so to allow for installation. These times are subject to change and are our best estimates from past orders.

  • Blinds and Shades: 2-4 weeks
    Our shortest timeline! You looked at our member’s projects, had your consultation, placed an order and will most likely see them installed by the end in the month. Doesn’t get much better than that!
  • Custom Soft Treatments: 4-6 weeks
    You looked through our past projects and decided you wanted to design window treatments completely unique to your style. Well guess what? We can have your one-of-a-kind draperies or top treatments crafted in around a month! Not too bad for a full custom job you can proudly say you designed.
  • Shutters: 4-10 weeks
    Our high quality shutters take a bit more time, but you will love the final product! Smooth, sleek, and crisply stained wood shutters custom cut and sized perfectly for your home. They are well worth the wait!

Window Treatment Installation – Times You Can’t Control

You should leave some extra time for possible shipping holdups, such as extreme weather. Shipment times depend on the type of product being ordered. Certain product types take longer to be shipped simply because they come from further regions.

Generally, the more customization you include, the longer the timeline. There are many options when it comes to customizing your window treatments. Work with one of our expert designers to find a product that fits your interior décor and meets your timeline.
