Our Design Process

Call us at 905-373-0983 or email us at info@ellasdrapery.ca to get started.

Let’s talk

To get started we will ask you a series of questions asking you about your design tastes and what you need your window treatments to do for you such as privacy, sun blockage etc.  This will help us narrow our search for fabrics and design ideas. The next step is to book your in- home consultation with our window treatment sales staff.


We will search through our fabric library (we have thousands of fabric swatches) and select fabrics for you based on your answers to our questions and come out to visit you in your home.  We will measure your windows, give suggestions and get back to you with an estimate. Once you place your order, we will put you on our production schedule.  Usually we get your window treatments done in about four weeks depending on fabric availability and production times.  If you are ordering blinds you may get those sooner than four weeks depending on the blind company you select.


Once your order is complete your order details are given to our professional installer and he will call you to set up a time for installation. You don’t have to worry about a thing.  Once installed you can sit back and enjoy your beautiful window treatments!
