If you want your window coverings for the holidays, you had better get focused.
Here is a standard timeline:
Blinds- 1-2 weeks
Shades- 1-3 weeks
Shutters- 2-8 weeks
Draperies 3-12 weeks
These are just estimates, but it’s a good reference for planning.
Things that can add to the time would be back-orders on fabrics or components. Installation backups can also be an issue as everyone wants to get their work done at the same time. The earlier you make your appointment, the happier you will be.
