"We don't consider your windows a pain!"
White's Draperies: WHO ARE WE?
We are a small, second-generation family-owned and operated business.
White's Draperies was founded in 1951 by Walter White, the father of the current owner, Kevin. His mom Phyllis still works here, enjoying helping customers and creating beautiful window coverings.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We make, sell, and install window coverings - anything from fabric treatments (draperies, sheers, valances, cornice boxes, swags and cascades) to blinds, shades, and shutters.
We do vertical blinds, horizontal blinds, cellular shades, Roman and roller shades, sunscreen shades, panel track, and woven woods.
You can also have most of the shades or blinds motorized or automated (some can be motorized for tilt only - for example, wood horizontal blinds). Outdoor treatments (roller or sunscreen shades, outdoor draperies) can be motorized too. Some categories of our motorized products can be programmed to open and close automatically at a certain time of day and night, or opened/closed manually from your cell phone or tablet, or by using a remote.
We also do bedding (comforters, coverlets, bed skirts), pillows, light upholstery (chair cushions, bench cushions), tablecloths, and table runners.
This is just a sample selection of our products, we can do basically anything you can design and have a budget for.
HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
No job is too small or too big for us. We can make a small bathroom window valance or draperies for the whole house. We can also work with the city, school, church, or retirement community.
Along with our own custom-made products, we sell hardware and window treatments from major manufacturers, such as Kirsch, Hunter Douglas, and Lafayette.
Also, we do repairs and provide warranty services for everything we make and install.
WHERE SHOULD I START?
People who come to us often ask us this question. We always answer that you should always think about functionality of your window treatments first. Do you want your window covering to block or filter the light? Do you want to enjoy your view or have complete privacy? Are you bothered by hot or cold coming from the window? Do you have pets or small children in the house? Are you going to open and close your window covering a lot, or is it just for decoration?
If you can answer these questions first, it will make the process of choosing window treatments much easier. In our store we can help you by showing different types of window coverings that would suit your needs. We also have photos of our previous jobs. You can bring a couch pillow, carpet or wood/tile floor sample, paint sample, or any other color swatch you want your window treatment to match. We have hundreds of fabric sample books to find a perfect match for your colors or patterns.
You can also bring us approximate measurements of your windows, and we will be able to give you a ballpark estimate for your project. Or we can schedule an in-home consultation and measure your windows exactly to provide more accurate quote. We also bring fabric samples to your house to make sure the colors you selected in the showroom will match your decor.
It usually takes 1-2 weeks after placing the order for blinds or shades to be ready to be installed, 3-4 weeks for draperies or other fabric treatments, and 6-8 weeks for shutters. We usually require 30% deposit on most orders, and take cash, checks, debit or credit cards.
