Frequently Asked Questions about everything Custom Drapery Designs.

How do I begin the process?

The process begins by simply reaching out to our team. You can connect with experts by calling us using the contact us link on our website or by starting an online chat on our Instagram or Facebook. Our team is readily available whenever you are, and we would love to hear from you.

How does the process work?

The process entails a few steps:

  • The discovery call
  • The initial visit
  • The design presentation
  • The production phase
  • The installation
What is discussed during the discovery call?

The discovery call is the first point of contact. The discovery call allows our experts to get to know you and the project, allowing us to begin to understand the scope of your project and what you are looking to achieve.

What to expect during the initial visit?

During the initial visit, our team will come to your home equipped with an abundance of fabric samples and trims that inspire or bring to life your project. We will take copious notes based on your goals and specifications and measure the space to plan for your design.

What is the design presentation?

The design presentation appointment includes a sketch and sampling of all the elements of your custom project. This allows you to see two-dimensionally what the project will look like three-dimensionally. We review the design details together and the estimate with the total investment for the projects. When ready to proceed, we collect the deposit and production begins.

What happens during the production and installation phase?

Your project is professionally measured, and all materials are sent to the workroom for production. Once the project is complete, installation day arrives. This is an exciting day! Utilizing our white glove service, your custom project is professionally installed. Every tiny detail has been considered for a beautiful finish and a magical unveiling. Your designer is on site throughout the beginning to final installation.

Who will be my point of contact?

Your designer will be available to you from the initial concept to installation. Our designers are on-site for each visit and final installation. Each designer communicates with the workroom while your project is in production. They manage the entire project, so you will not have to worry about any aspect of your custom drapery experience. We do it all for you!

How long does the process take? Is there a way to speed up the process?

A custom drapery project typically takes on average six to eight weeks. We will verify to ensure all fabrics and trim are in stock and let you know if there are any expected delays in advance. Custom drapery takes time, but we assure you that the final product will be well worth the wait!

Do I need to know what I want before I call?

Not at all! We can build your dream design with even just a color preference as a starting point. Our designers are very creative and have access to expansive selections of fabrics, trims and hardware. We will guide you, listen to your likes and dislikes, and present a final design.

How do we stay on budget?

The total investment for your custom project; window treatment, interior design or custom bedding project, is determined during the discovery call, and our designers carefully respect and manage the budget throughout the process, ensuring it is not exceeded.

What are some unexpected costs to be aware of?

There are virtually not unexpected costs to be made aware of as the estimate discussed in the design presentation includes all aspects of your custom window treatment project.

Brenda is the most professional, reliable, and trustworthy person I have ever worked with. I cannot say enough about how amazing she is. The work she did was perfect and exactly what I wanted, but beyond that, her customer service simply cannot be matched. I highly recommend her.


Rose Dose

Custom Drapery and Designs are the G.O.A.T. Susan was one of the most professional, consultative, intuitive, and knowledgeable designers I’ve worked with. She was able to lean into my dreams and come up with a design that met every one of my whims. CDD has made me a very happy lady and made my home beautiful! Thank you so very much for your talent!!

Shannon Gill

My drapes are beautiful! I wanted a set made but wasn't comfortable having a team in my home for measuring and installation. Custom Drapery Designs worked with me and made a set of drapes based on a set I already had hanging that I sent to them to use as a template. This isn't the normal procedure, and I was very thankful that they worked with me during these odd times. The drapes were made quickly and they are absolutely perfect. I also was surprised at how affordable the rates are for the amazing quality work! Highly recommend, will hire again.

Tommy Thompson

Brenda and her team worked wonders on our home remodel, handling colors, materials, and window shutters brilliantly. Their approach was never pushy, resulting in a stunning home. Even four years later, when we needed a replacement shutter, Brenda's professionalism shone through. She had all our details from previous work and promptly reordered the shutter, impressing us with her follow-through. Extremely pleased with their service!


Kristin Scholer

Brenda was a delight to work with for my home remodel's window treatment solutions. She went above and beyond, making multiple trips to ensure everything was perfect. Her responsiveness and attention to my budget were exceptional. The custom drapery she designed for my bedroom is truly one of the most beautiful aspects of my house. I will absolutely use her again in the future.

Kristin Santiago

Stephanie at Custom Drapery Designs is amazing! She helped us cover all the windows in our new house with various beautiful draperies and shades that matched our style and stayed within our budget. She listened to what I wanted and then brought great ideas to help really pinpoint the exact look for each room. The entire process was not only painless, but fun, and she is a wonderful person to work with! Highly recommend!!

Sandy Olsen

Stephanie's expertise in choosing custom drapes for my windows was fantastic. With onsite samples and accurate drawings, I could envision the final look. She also helped me select stunning hand-painted chinoiserie panels for my dining room. The installation was timely and professional. I highly recommend Custom Drapery Designs and would gladly work with them again.

Paige Volk

Brenda and her team were exceptional to work with, creating beautiful draperies. Despite a smooth transition to an independent living apartment, my mom missed the elegance of her previous designs. Brenda understood their style perfectly, blending a softer look with their traditional taste. The attention to detail, fabric quality, and loving care for my mother were wonderful. The draperies made her feel pampered and like a princess in her "princess room." Absolutely gorgeous results!


Anita Williams

My Hunter Douglas motorized shades and custom drapes are perfect. Clearly, they were made and installed in a detailed and professional manner. Brenda and her team are a delight to work with. I highly recommend her services.

I chose Custom Drapery Designs for shades and shutters throughout my home. Their work in the living room and kitchen impressed me, so I had them install shades in the bedrooms too. Their high-quality products truly transform any room. The staff is professional, kind, and provided various options for each space. I highly recommend them for adding elegance and beauty to your home.
