Whether it is café curtains to add charm to your kitchen, sheer swags and drapery to formalize your dining room, accent panels with any style of valance to warm up your family room or any range and style of custom blinds for function, Fargeys Decorating Centre’s professional window covering specialists are ready to create your look with you.
Paired with one of the best workrooms in Central Alberta, Fargeys Decorating Centre offers thousands of fabrics and hardware with all the best brands to bring your creation to reality. Our professional design team work hands on with our customers to make the experience far less intimidating including designing a visual, to scale, design that allows you to see how your custom drapery will look and make adjustments. And you have to admit, it builds more confidence to know what you are getting rather than trust the imagination of a designer and their word.
First we start with a FREE in home consultation where we take all the necessary measurements, snap some photos and take in the style of your home. We discuss your likes, dislikes, design wishes and any challenges we may face for installation. Feel free to have pictures or specify a Pinterest board of ideas you like. We bring a small selection of fabric options with us and if we find something that day we call that a “Yatzee!” moment. If not, no worries! Our designers will go back to our extensive showroom and go through every book and sample to find fabrics that you may like and work with your design.
Next, we set an in store appointment to go over new fabric and hardware options and offer you your first look at the design we have put together with our custom drapery program. This process, depending how many windows and changes we make, can take one or two appointments to narrow down but in the end, you will have a full confidence and understanding of your drapery purchase as well as have taken part in the design process with us. It is supposed to be fun and creative after all! Once we have all the elements in place with the fabric selected, we send the design to our workroom for a quote and they let us know if there are any unforseen challenges.
It’s time to get to the brass tacks and we sit down with you to discuss your quote, the final design and sign off. We go over the finished measurements, fabric patterns and colours, hardware choices and placement. This includes cleaning care as well. While custom drapery is not inexpensive, it is uniquely yours and finished with extreme quality and care. We take a minimum 75% deposit at the time of order with the balance due on the day of installation.
It can take 4-6 weeks to have your fabric delivered and the workroom assemble your custom drapery. Certain times of the year can be hectic and increase this time while others can mean your window coverings arrive sooner. The two months leading up to Christmas are usually very busy so we recommend looking at those treatments in August/September in order for delivery not to push too close to the holidays.
Once they arrive back at Fargeys, our professional installers will call you to set up a suitable time. If possible, remove any previous window treatments or hardware or let us know ahead of time that you require the installers to take care of this for you. IF there happens to be any issues, our installers notify us and our design staff will work with you to get it corrected to your satisfaction. Fargeys Decorating Centre has been in business for over 54 years and we pride ourselves on our customer service as well as the quality of what we provide. We would love to design with you, to serve you and we are ready to gain another life long customer relationship with you.
Fargeys now carries in stock grommet drapery panels in a variety of fabrics and patterns from Bonavista. We loved the way this company compliments our custom fabrics for quality in lots of popular choices.
Special orders for colours or patterns that are not stocked are available after meeting $100 minimum and take approximately two weeks to arrive. Shipping charges are extra.
