// Draperies



Custom draperies are a favorite choice among homeowners, designers, and architects alike for their unique ability to add a soft layer of texture and accentuate a room’s architecture.

The Shade Shop meticulously handcrafts draperies in its local Houston workroom. Our full-service shop handles the entire process, from design and fabrication to final installation. We happily work to-the-trade with the Houston design industry, as well as with residential homeowners or business owners and contractors (restaurants, hotels, corporate offices, and more). With the option of selecting a fabric from the extensive selection in our showroom – ranging from sheer to blackout, solids to statement-making patterns, and linens to velvets – you have the artistic ability to create a style that is uniquely yours, while also addressing any lighting and privacy needs.



Designing custom draperies or curtains can feel overwhelming, given the many customization options available. A perfect starting point is deciding what drapery pleat best suits your style. Ripple Fold draperies are adored by architects and designers for their modern simplicity and relaxed style, while the Pinch Pleat is a perennial classic that provides a more tailored, formal aesthetic and the Goblet Pleat lends a sense of old-world style. From Box Pleat to English Pleat, French Pleat, Unpleated and more, we can design and fabricate exactly what you are envisioning or replicate a drapery style based on an inspiration photo.

We have included photography of many different drapery pleat styles in the below gallery, but our team is always happy to answer your questions and ultimately help you settle on the perfect drapery design.



Custom draperies can glide easily along a low-profile track or decorative rod and can be motorized or manually operated. Our installation team is professionally trained and adept at installing and programming motorized drapery track systems by Somfy, Crestron, and Lutron, making it easy for you to control your curtains easily via a smartphone app or remote control.

We offer an extensive collection of high-end, designer hardware, including rods, rings, finials, tieback holders, and more that range from modern to classic in style. With collections made of solid wood, steel, aluminum, glass, and more and finishes ranging from satin nickel to oil-rubbed bronze, antique white, and beyond, designer hardware can provide distinct finishing touches to your custom draperies.


Client Testimonials

Larry and his team at The Shade Shop are one of my best vendors in Houston. I would highly recommend them!

Meg Lonergan Interiors

As architects, we thoroughly enjoy working with the Shade Shop. Larry and his team are so skilled and knowledgeable with all things solar. From roller shades, draperies, exterior shading, shutters, you name it!

Dillon Kyle Architects

We are extremely pleased with the window treatments that were made & installed by the Shade Shop. We did soft, timeless Roman shades and curtains, which are the quality you'd expect in a high-end hotel. Everyone on the staff was responsive and professional, and the quality of both the products and installation was top-notch.

Nathan Hoot

Moving to Houston and into a renovated house, I had a major blind/shutter job on my hands. There are so many companies out there and my goal was to balance quality, aesthetics, and price. I assumed a local shop wouldn’t be competitive with a major chain, but I was (happily!) very wrong. I found exactly the look and quality I wanted, for a reasonable price, and with unbelievable service. Nothing beats being able to take your time to review options, try out swatches at home, and then feel like you’re getting personalized care through the ordering and installation process. I highly recommend that you go straight to the Shade Shop!

Highly recommended! The entire process was flawless. Everyone was easy to work with, great products, great installers, and great customer service. There's no other place to go for window treatments. We love our motorized shades. They are beautiful to look at and they work perfectly.

We purchased the motorized roll-up shades for our outdoor patio area. Love, love, LOVE them! We also purchased fantastic quality plantation shutters for our windows. What can I say? I love them as well. VERY HAPPY with both purchases. I would highly recommend "The Shade Shop, Inc." In fact, I just recommended them to our daughter!
