The thing about drapery is that it is very easy to install poorly. There are so many guidelines that must be followed in terms of how it is hung, what kind of pleat style you should choose, and how high or low they should be installed. Poorly hung drapery is incredibly hard to get over. They are incredibly distracting. However, drapery that is hung well can be a great and beautiful addition to a space. You have options as to whether you want to create a dressy, casual, modern, or traditional style. Thankfully, we can help you install your drapery, so you won’t have to worry about doing it yourself.

Shades, on the other hand, are much simpler. With shades, you have tons of different options for the type of shade you want to install in your home. You can choose from roman shades, cellular shades. roller shades, and many more. Each of these options offers different styles and functional benefits to your space. One great thing about shades in comparison to drapery is that they are much harder to mess up. Shades are much more straightforward, so even without tons of help, they can still look great. For drapery, you must rely quite a bit on your designers in order to make sure they look right.
