The Yardstick: Specialists in Window Treatments Like Shutters, Draperies, Blinds, & Shades

Whether you are moving into a new home or redecorating your existing home, window coverings complete your house.

Choosing the right type of covering for your window can be overwhelming with the many choices, styles, colors and fabrics to choose from.

That is why it is important to consider a window covering specialist when contemplating which window treatment is best for your home.

The Yardstick started as a fabric store for at-home sewers in the 1960’s. Eventually, the fabric store component of the business ended, and The Yardstick went fully into the business of custom draperies, re-upholstery, custom blinds & shades, and custom shutters.

The YARDSTICK has over 50 years of experience of design, sales, and installation for all aspects of window treatments, including custom draperies, valances, blinds, shutters, and rods, providing you with the utmost assurance that your dreams will be fulfilled.
