A: You should choose a Designer based on their training and level of expertise. An Interior Designer specializes in different areas - space and wall planning, lighting, furniture, art, etc. A Certified Window Covering Professional is a title given to a person who has completed the study programs sponsored by the Window Coverings Association of America (WCAA). This individual has done extensive studies in window coverings, and is most qualified to assist n the design of window coverings. A Window Coverings Consultant can be anyone who sells window coverings; there are no set qualifications or guarantees of their product knowledge or skill.
Always ask the prospective designer her/his level of expertise, how many years have you been in business, and if possible, ask for references.
