Benefits of quoting off plans

If you’re building a new house or undergoing major renovations, don’t wait to sort your window furnishings. In our experience there are many benefits to seeking a free cost estimate based off your plans as early as possible. It helps you set the right budget and could reveal options that may not be available once your project is complete. Keep reading for more info or get started now.

Move into a full completed home

The sooner you get the ball rolling the more likely your curtains and blinds will be ready and installed before you move in. As all our products are custom made to fit your windows there is a period of time between you meeting your consultant and choosing your fabrics to them being made and installed.

Set realistic budget requirements

Lots of customers like to get an estimated price based on their plans so they know how much curtains and blinds might cost. We understand that construction and decorating budgets often have to be flexible to accommodate any changes to the plans as the work progresses. That’s why we recommend getting in touch earlier rather than later means you will know how much you need to set aside to achieve the look you want.

The possibility of better options

Curtains and blinds don’t have to be the traditional ‘screwed-to-the-wall’ variety. By making decisions early in the process you have more options. For instance, a recessed built-in pelmet could be incorporated into your plans to hide curtain rails or blind mechanisms; or perhaps automation could be integrated rather than added on once the build is complete; it may just be as simple as locating stud beams in the right places to fix tracks and brackets as securely as possible. In these instances, your consultant can collaborate with your architect or builder on any design provisions.
