  • Can I buy curtains online in Australia?
    Of course! With Shades by You, you can order custom made curtains online in Australia directly online from our website. Our handy online ordering system grants you the power to select sizes, fabrics, colours, and a range of other options. If you’ve never done it before, selecting the right size curtains may be difficult. If you are struggling, contact us. We can potentially help you measure up before you place an order.
  • How much do curtains cost to order online?
    The final cost will largely depend on size, number of curtains, and what kind of options you wish to add to your order. Choosing motorised operational methods will cost more than simple manual curtains. Also, the larger the space to cover, the more your custom curtains will cost to produce. However, we can offer discounts for larger orders. Contact us to learn more.
  • Can motorised curtains be made to run by themselves?
    Yes, curtains can come with motorised operation, allowing you to open and close them at the press of a button. This is great for people looking for more accessibility around the home. Learn more about our motorised curtain solutions by visiting our dedicated page. You can even take things a step further and make your curtains fully automated. Motorised curtains can work in conjunction with smart home platforms like Google Home to open and close at times you set. You can even talk to devices to get your curtains moving!
  • Do you deliver curtains?
    Yes, we deliver our custom curtains all around Australia for just $30. Once you’ve place your order through our online ordering system, we’ll make them and ship them directly to your door, ready for installation immediately. It takes approximately 3 weeks to make your order after you buy curtains online. If your order looks like it will take longer, we will touch base with you immediately.
