1. Your Custom Window Treatments Will Fit Perfectly
They're tailor-made for your windows; nothing comes out of a box. And since our certified workrooms make everything to our exact specifications, from stitch length to hem allowance, the quality is guaranteed 100%.
2. Our Custom Draperies Are Lush, Not Skimpy
Proper fullness is the key to a custom look. Most ready-mades have only 1-1½ to 2 times fullness. Ours are made with the right fullness for the chosen fabric — usually 2½ to 3 times. Pleats are deep for a sumptuous look.
3. Patterns Are Matched Across Seams
This ensures a continuous flow of design across the custom window treatment. On window swags, cornices and valances, we'll see that the elements (birds, bouquets and so forth) are positioned perfectly. (Note: there are a few fabrics that are not possible to match due to their construction--for example, fabrics with embroidery patterns and some plaids).
4. Choose Any Length You Want
Custom draperies can be made to any size, from short (to clear a bookcase) to long (floor length) and longer (if you prefer puddling). If you have very large windows, we offer extra-long pleats for extra-tall draperies.
5. Drapery Linings Make All The Difference
The right drapery lining adds body, protects your fabrics — and makes your draperies, shades, swags and cascades look stunning. We offer eight different types of linings and will help you select the one that's best for you aesthetically and functionally.
6. The Little Details Make All The Difference
Our custom draperies feature 4-inch weighted double hems and 1 to 1½-inch double side hems. Trimmings are hand-sewn or machine-sewn as appropriate. Mounting boards for shades and valances are covered with your fabric so they look good from any angle.
