Your Ultimate Window Upgrade Guide With Custom Drapery, Blinds & Shades

Thinking of giving your windows a makeover? You're in the right place!

At Guildcraft, we get how both exciting and tricky it can be to get the best window vibe. Whether you're into some snazzy drapery or the clean look of blinds and shades, I’ve got your back. I’ll be your guide to getting the perfect fitting for your windows.

Custom Drapery

The right drapery can change your windows from just plain old, windows. We have a fantastic team that’ll use their expertise and the best materials to get your windows fully decked out. 


It's not just about hiding from nosy neighbors. It’s choosing the fabric that’ll reflect your style while uplifting the decor of your space.


Minimalistic? Groovy patterns? Whatever your style or need, we got you. You are the co-designer in this project, we’ll listen to your ideas and work with you to have the most functional but elegantly designed drapery installed. 


Big window, small window, weirdly shaped window, it doesn’t matter we don’t judge. We’ll make sure your drapery fits just right.

Blinds, Shades & Shutters

If we were to compare drapery to that fabulous party dress, then we can call blinds, shades, and shutters the cool tees and jeans combo. They’re sharp, snappy, and modern.


Fancy a mix of keeping it private and beautiful? Our blinds, be they vertical or horizontal, are on-point and look absolutely fabulous, no matter how you adjust them.


These aren't just about keeping the sun out. From elegant sheers to classic Romans, you’re spoilt for choice here.


These window treatments are sturdy and stylish. If you’re into the classic wood look or something a bit different like polysilk, Guildcraft has everything you need.

What to Think about Before Making a Choice

Alright, before we dive in, here's some food for thought:

The Why

You need a clear vision, what’s your game plan? Are you prioritizing looks,  perhaps shade, or are you focusing on privacy? Who says you have to choose? You can opt for a bit of everything.


You have to figure out how hands-on are you planning to be when it comes to caring for your fittings. Some materials are easier to maintain than others if you want something that doesn’t need as much love. 

The Room's Vibe

Think about the room's mojo. You can mix styles throughout the home. Your bedroom can be decked out with something thicker for those sleep-ins, while the lounge can rock some lighter shades.

The Cost

Let’s keep it real, setting a budget is important. Custom window dressings might cost a tad more, but they've got that unique swagger that you can’t get anywhere else. Guildcraft has you covered.

To wrap it up, at Guildcraft, we believe every window deserves its spotlight. Whether you’re into drapes that drop jaws or the crisp lines of blinds and shades, we’re here, ready to set you up. 

So let's make some window magic!
