From remodeling to moving, having a good understanding of custom window treatment installation times will help ease the process. Our goal is to help streamline the process from purchasing window coverings to installation as quick and possible so you can plan head. 


From initial contact to the final installation day, it is key to manage expectations while communicating timelines effectively. This post will help you plan your project, beautify your home, and inform you on how long everything will take. 


Standard Installation Times For Window Coverings 

The first question you will be asked is "When do you want your window treatments installed?" 


Next year? Then we have plenty of time. But if it's in the next month or two, then we better get started! 


Various factors come into play when installing custom window treatments, some that are out of your control while others in your control and can help you achieve a quicker installation. 


Initial Design Consultation 

How ready are your for the design consultation? 


Having the exact product, style, material, and color in mind before your design consultation will make a world of difference for your installation. Knowing the different materials and accessories you want to add to personalize your window coverings is helpful too! 


Prepare yourself by browsing our window covering products for design inspiration to further help you beautify your home. Control your windows from your smartphone with motorized window treatments. 


The better prepared you are for the design consultation, the faster we can order and install your dream window coverings. 


Product Shipping Times

There are many window covering products with varying shipping times that are an averaged based on previous purchases and research. Shipment timelines start from the day of order until the point of delivery. 


Please allow 1-2 days for the delivery to be processed and an installation time to be scheduled. The physical installation itself may also take 1-2 days, depending on the product and project. 


Blinds & Shades: 2 - 4 Weeks

Get blinds or roller shades installed in your home professionally in a month or less! 


Fairly quick, right? Consider this, schedule a constultation right now and get your new window blinds or blackout shades in a month. 


Soft & Top Treatments: 4 - 6 Weeks

Design a window treatment that's unique to your personal style! Craft one-of-a-kind draperies or top treatments and have them installed in about a month. Not that bad for a fully customized job that you can show off to friends and family as your own style. 


Shutters: 4 - 10 Weeks

Window shutters take a big longer than other window coverings because they are custom measured and require more quality service from seasoned professionals. If you include materials along with this customization, these factors typically bring shutter installation times closer to 10 weeks. 


But hey, great things take time! For crisp clean shutters, patience is definitely a virtue. 


Awnings: 4 - 6 Weeks 

Add shade to your outdoor living space with a retractable awning! These babies take a little under a month to install but imagine how beautiful it'll be to enjoy sunny days without the heat. 


Retractable Screens: 4 - 6 Weeks

Let the cool breeze in with the doors open while keeping the sunshine heat out with retractable screens. 


They are one of the best window treatment ideas for doors because these screens can block out debris and bugs while keeping loved ones such as children and pets in. 


Additional Processing Time 

With any purchase, there can be unexpected delays. 


From workers being sick to earthquakes, we try to plan for delays that can happen but there will always be factors that are out of yours and our control. Typically, we leave extra time for shipping so the order can arrive earlier than later. 


Also, you have to factor in the size of the project, motorization options, and how much customization was requested into the installation time which may prolong the process. But don't let this deter you from getting your dream window treatments, just remember that customized craftsmanship takes time.
