When people hear that a product is custom made, they automatically assume that it is expensive. Merriam Webster’s definition of expensive is: “commanding a high price and especially one that is not based on intrinsic worth or is beyond a prospective buyer’s means.” If that is the working definition, then custom drapery and shades are not expensive.
Our window treatment consultants do not charge for their services. That means you have someone who has a mastery of the various products, fabrics and applications personally guiding you. They will come to your home and learn about what your needs are. Their job is to make sure that you are more than satisfied with your new draperies. If you are not happy with the color or any other aspect of your Hunter Douglas window shade you can exchange your shade through a program called the Right Choice Promise. These are values you will not get with non-custom window shades and window blinds.
The expert advice of a professional window treatment professional will ensure that you do ask the right questions. Window Treatment consultants are trained to ask you the questions that will help you think through issues you may not have foreseen. Many times homeowners are interested in buying a window shade for a bathroom that does not offer enough privacy. When that is the case, the window treatment consultant will point out the level of view through of that window blind and discuss whether or not it is appropriate for a room such as the bathroom.
Have you gone into someone’s home and noticed their draperies did not quite reach the floor or were dragging too much on the floor? Have you ever seen a window blind that looked like it was squeezed to fit the window frame or a window blind that has ½ inch gaps on each side creating annoying glare? These are issues one can encounter when buying non-custom window treatments.
