New Drapes

38 East Semi Custom Drapes. 3 easy ways to prep your home for the holidays

It may be too late to start a custom window treatment project for installation this year, (now is the time to book your custom window treatment consultation for those 2023 projects you have in mind!) but it’s not too late to update your home with semi-custom drapes from 38 East.

What are semi-custom drapes? 38 East offers a solution for those times when the timeline and budget don’t accommodate custom window treatments. 38 East drapes can be customized by size, pleat, and lining. They are available is a variety of patterns and colorways designed by Window Works co-owner Kim Serafim, and the sizes available are better suited for typical home ceiling heights, unlike off-the-shelf options. The best part? They ship within 3 weeks, so there’s still time for you to order and install before the turkey hits the table.

Check Your Batteries

Fall isn’t just for checking the batteries in your smoke detectors (but make sure you’re doing that too!). You don’t want the unwelcome surprise of dead batteries in your battery operated shades and window treatments. Now is the time to change them, or else you may find yourself having to climb over guests to adjust your shades or blinds while entertaining.
