Our workroom and install team are the "Best"

We used a 24 foot extension ladder to install these panels in this marvelous McLean VA home.  The ladder in the photo was used by one of our team members to hold the heavy panels while the guy 20 feet up secured them at the ceiling.

This home is very impressive. The wing back chairs are 6 feet tall.
Interior designer Ginger Rodriguez  owner of WestBay Interiors   hired us to make and install the super long drapery panels.

Here's the view from the upper level of the home.

Shaped Kitchen Cornice

We built, upholstered and installed this kitchen cornice for interior designer Sherry Tyra of CHIC Interiors.
It fits perfectly between the kitchen cabinets with not an inch for mistakes.

The Drapery Shop is happy to provide services to both design professionals and homeowners.

Roman Shade on Rings? Very Clever...

On the other side of the room we installed pleated panels on a larger window.  The home owner wanted a Roman Shade on the smaller.  She later came up with an idea to have us add the same rod and rings over the Roman.  Very Clever,

Roman Shades - Details Details Details

It's important to consider the architectural details in the room when customizing Roman Shades.  There are  many layers to this window casing and crown molding.  Whether to mount the shade inside or outside of the casing is only 1 of many assessments I had to make.

Heights and Lengths

When you're self employed you often have to be willing to climb heights and go to lengths that others refuse. You stretch and you grow and both you and your customers win because of your extra efforts.
