A 50+ Year Legacy of Window Coverings – San Jose Window Treatments

Yardstick window treatment store san jose

For over 50 years, we have been delivering value to Bay Area homeowners with our excellent window coverings and treatments. Our window treatment store was first opened in 1958; and since then we have been improving Northern California homes by installing custom blinds, shutters, curtains, drapes, and other window hardware.

As window fashions and home decor styles have changed, so have we. We have expanded our ability to serve homeowners with our offerings of custom drapery, drapes, window treatments, shutters, motorized window treatments, cellular shades, custom blinds, and so much more!

Today, we bring our sophisticated offerings and expertise direct to your home. The Yardstick can design and install and install any window covering that matches your decor and aesthetic. From contemporary styles with simple or complex blinds, curtains or shutters, or more traditional drapes or curtains with custom fabric and color options, we can do it all!

We offer window treatment products and fabrics from some of the most reputable companies in the world, including Hunter Douglas, Alta, Graber, Norman and Essex.

Our Process

The process starts with your phone call. Upon answering we ask a few questions to see what you have in mind for your house. Next, an appointment is set for a consultant to give ideas and show you products based on your interaction. A quote is usually given at the first appointment and everything gets ordered once an order is placed. All the logistics are done behind-the-scenes and, when everything arrives at our warehouse, an installation is set up at a time that is convenient for you. Our installers have been installing for many years and are well-trained, and take all the necessary precautions to work neatly and efficiently in your home.

We created a custom installation process that allows you to get exactly what you are looking for in custom window treatments. We want to ensure we provide you with a hassle-free window covering or window treatment installation.
