The Easy Way to Buy Custom Drapes and Shades

For a long time, the quickest way to get your hands on a good set of window coverings was either run to the closest department store or pay a fortune for custom ones. But times have changed and Barn & Willow has made scoring a set of custom-made drapes or shades easier than ever.

Our goal is simple: Provide custom window treatments, composed of fine materials, that are affordable and easy to order— so you pay for quality, not branding hype or the middlemen. But that’s not all Barn & Willow has to offer. From fabric swatches to fast shipping, read ahead to hear what makes the process of ordering Barn & Willow drapes and shades unique.

1. You get to choose from the most premium of fabrics.

Unlike off-the-shelf curtains that are often made of cheap synthetic materials, Barn & Willow’s drapes and Roman shades are composed of finely made fabrics including organic-cotton and 100-percent Belgian linen woven at a factory in Meulebeke, Belgium that has been producing the flax-based fabric for over a century. We also offer blended fabrics as well as thickly woven velvets, so you have an assortment of luxe materials to choose from.

2. You get to order free swatches and more.

Look, we get it. Choosing the right fabric for your drapes and shades can be tricky. That’s why the Barn & Willow site allows you to change the color of the background wall when looking at images of our window coverings on the website (just click the “color picker” tool to the right of the window frame). You can also order up to five free Fabric Swatches to help you decide, or rent some sample drapery panels for up to seven days to try out one of their 24 different color options in person.

3. You get precise measurements.

Since each Barn & Willow piece is custom stitched to your exact specifications, securing the right sized curtain or shade panel for your windows at home has never been easier. Our online ordering process requires you to simply enter the measurements of your windows. If you need help figuring out your window measurements, our online measuring tool will help guide you through the process with ease.

4. You have access to our design specialists.

Barn & Willow’s custom drapes and shades are shipped and delivered in 10 days or less, with all hardware included—so they’ll be ready to install as soon as they arrive at your door.
