What is the difference between custom-made and ready-made window treatments?
Big box retailers carry what they consider to be standard window treatment sizes. However, most windows vary considerably in width, height and shape, making it difficult to get a perfect fit. Choosing a custom solution means your window coverings will be manufactured to your exact window specifications; plus you will have infinitely more fabric, finishing and hardware choices.
How do I pay for my window treatments?
Because your window coverings are custom-made, your designer will ask for payment when you place your order. Decorview accepts all major credit cards, personal checks and offers special financing.
Can I measure and install the window treatments myself?
To ensure your window treatments are a perfect fit, we strongly recommend a professional measure and installation. However, if you are purchasing your window treatments through a virtual appointment, we will walk you through measuring your windows to ensure you get the correct measurement. Installation instructions are also provided if you will be doing a self-installation. Should you need any assistance, we are always here to help ensure you are 100% satisfied with your purchase.

I already know what kind of window treatments I want, can I order them online or over the phone?
Decorview provides free in-home design consultations to homeowners shopping for window treatments, therefore we recommend allowing a designer to visit your home to write up your order. Our designers are all window covering experts and will double check your product selection to ensure there are no overlooked details that would prevent a perfect fit.
Can you explain the design process in more detail?
When you invite a Decorview designer into your home (virtually or in-person), the designer will bring the ideas and inspiration to you. You’ll discuss your window coverings project in more detail, as well as explore a wide selection of style, color and fabric options. The designer will then measure or walk you through taking all the measurements needed and provide you with a comprehensive quote during your consultation, that way you can place your order that day if you desire.
Once you place your order, your window treatments will be fabricated to your exact window specifications. Upon completion, if you have an assigned installer, they will schedule an installation time that is convenient to you.
Will I be able to see product samples before I buy?
Yes, that is the beauty of Decorview’s design service. Your designer will bring the showroom to you and share product ideas and samples during your consultation, so you’ll be able to explore an extensive selection of style, color and fabric options and see how the blinds, shades, shutters or drapery will look at the window before you buy.
What is the cost for a design consultation?
Whether in-home, online, or over the phone, Decorview design consultations are always free.
How can I get pricing?
Your designer will provide a comprehensive quote detailing the products you selected, as well as installation, shipping and tax costs, during your consultation. Because your window treatments are custom designed for your specific windows, we are unable to provide pricing online or over the phone.
