Custom Window Shades . Always a Shade Better than Ready-Made

Anyone who has been looking for window treatments will find that is an array of blinds, shades, shutters, curtains and draperies to choose from. But those are ready-made varieties and if you want a unique look, and then custom-made is the way to go. The latter provide you a perfect fit for your windows- they look much better and offer better insulation too.

Types of Shades

With custom window treatments you also get to pick (at no extra cost), details like right or left cord placement. If you need a showpiece panel that is 12” tall & 15” wide, only custom window treatments will be able to do justice to it. If you prefer shades for your windows, you will never run short of options and can choose from:
