Here Heather shares a tip on Window Coverings – Budget and Timelines – What to expect:
Building or buying a home this year?
There are just so many details and things to think about when you are moving into or building a new home. I can’t tell you how often I have been with a family in their new home, and they have a definite need for window coverings, but have no idea as to what to expect as far as budget, timelines, or even which type of window convering product would suit them the best. We at Made in the Shade Blinds Saskatoon want to make it easy for you!


Looking at timelines – your consultation will take anywhere between 30-75 minutes (give or take). At your consultation, we can decide on your window coverings and also take accurate measurements of the windows in your home. Your quote will be back to you within 24-48 hours of your consultation. For most custom window coverings, plantation shutters being the exception, the ship time from the manufacturer is between 2-3 weeks. Plantation shutters will take between 4-10 weeks, depending on the size and scale of the project. Most other products (wood or faux wood blinds, cellular or honeycomb shades, roller and solar shades, roman shades, sheers and draperies, etc.) are able to be delivered within 3 weeks of placing the order. Give yourself a little bit of extra time so that everything comes together smoothly. Once your product arrives at Made in the Shade, we will schedule an installation date. 


Budget! This is something we all want to know! Made in the Shade Blinds offers a wide variety of choices from a number of manufacturers – Hunter Douglas, Graber, Horizons, Maxxmar, Shade-O-Matic and Norman Shutters – and there is a bit of variance in the price ranges. The size of your windows also plays a factor into your costs…the larger the window, the more pricey the window covering (of course). One of the most cost-effective window covering products would be faux-wood blinds. Fabrics and natural woven woods generally require more of an investment, as do plantation shutters. Pleated, roller and solar shades tend to fall more into the budget-conscious category, and cellulars (depending upon the brand) fall pretty much in the middle of the road. I do think that you would be surprised when you do some comparison shopping!
