SPECIFYING WINDOW COVERINGS FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS

 

THIS ONE-DAY CLASS TEACHES DESIGNERS HOW TO DESIGN, SPECIFY, AND ORDER CUSTOM WINDOW COVERINGS!

 

WINDOW COVERINGS FROM CLIENT INTERVIEW TO CLIENT “WOW”!

Have you noticed some designers avoid window treatments, due to lack of knowledge, claiming to “preserve the view”, while their clients struggle to heat and cool their rooms, and are annoyed with glare, fading, and lack of privacy? Custom window treatments should be part of the design process!

Learn how to measure for all types of treatments, calculate yardage and prices, and how to arrange installation within licensing laws.

Design stylish, simple or extravagant treatments to meet your clients’ hopes and dreams, as well as providing convenient function!

 

BEAUTIFUL POWER POINT PRESENTATIONS AND OUTLINES TEACH:

Interviewing clients for key information

Integrating client preferences with function

Selection criteria, getting a budget, and functional considerations

Sketch process, rendering process and when to use them

Measuring techniques, calculating what’s needed to create that masterpiece

Anatomy of a drapery and valance (it’s not what you think)

Drapery hardware, vendors, and industry standards

Getting paid, contracts, design fees, work orders

           Quality, safety, efficiency, legal issues, delivery times

 

LEARN SKILLS THAT EVEN THE BEST DESIGN PROGRAMS DON’T TEACH!   

          Window coverings can cultivate profitable new business for designers—designers who know how to design, specify and manage the   process. 

WHY NOT YOU?

 

Class Cost for Early-Bird Registration $225.00

Class Cost for Standard Registration, less than one week before class:  $295
