Hire a Pro Advice: Install a Roman Shade

Get help locating a service that installs window treatments and Roman shades.

By Gene and Katie Hamilton

Most retailers that sell window treatments like a Roman shade offer an installation service. These include home design services, home décor and furniture stores, a decorating center within a home center, or individual interior designers. You'll find several of them listed in the Yellow Pages under "Window Shades & Treatments."

Before you go shopping for a Roman shade, know the measurement (width, height and depth) of the window(s) so you can get a rough estimate for installation. The price will vary based on the material and style you choose, as well as how it's mounted. Usually the salesperson will send an installer to the house to get exact measurements and look for any unusual installation requirements.
