Great service, great product

I want to thank Marie and her team at Shades of Home. I have never ordered drapes before and she took such good care of me. Her replies were quick, she told me exactly what I needed and walked me through the process, even though what I needed was a little unusual! The drapes were ready BEFORE the estimated delivery date. Raj, the drape installer came quickly and did a fabulous job installing everything. I can’t thank you all enough. I’m so happy with the final product!

Shades/Blinds installation

We are very pleased with our new blinds. Jasmina at Shades of home was very helpful in her suggestions for window coverings. She listened to what we needed and provided helpful suggestions with no "upselling". Steven went above and beyond with the installation. He communicated with us well and offered to come sooner than planned when the materials came in. He was prompt, professional and courteous. The installation was completed earlier than expected. We felt very comfortable with Jasmina and Steven following Covid protocols. I would highly recommend this team.

Great service and design advice. Competitive prices.

Friendly team that helped us with design options for our entire home. Very helpful to be able to see the blind and drapery options in the Toronto showroom. Even though we decided to install ourselves given COVID concerns, the installer that delivered gave us detailed installation instructions and some good tips. Overall we were very pleased with the service, quality of products and end result. Thanks!

Hi Colin
Thanks for the review. It was a real pleasure helping you select the right treatments for your new home.

I hope you enjoy the drapery/sheers for the master bedroom. I thought it was the best option for the garden doors. I hope you did too.

Thanks again and if there's anything else we can do for you or your friends, we'd be happy to help

Thanks again

Great shades! Great Service!

Great experience and product! We were so happy with the COVID-sensitive service. We have four very large windows and had to get the our shades tailor made for us. Shades of Home was super fast and lovely to work with. And the shades are beautiful!

New Town Home window coverings

I chose Shades of Home Oakville to provide all the new window and door coverings in my new town home. Jasmina provided expert advice and was a great support in helping me make my selection with so many choices available. The installation was seamless and on time even in these uncertain times ( COVID-19 restrictions ) . Thank you Jasmina for your prompt attention to my needs. It was exciting to see and now live with the final products

Great Service and Products

We checked out several drapery companies but Shades of Home won our business with their combination of friendly, attentive service and great product range. Their rep was willing to spend as much time as we wanted to make sure we got the right product for our home. Their team showed up on time to do the final measurements, and, despite COVID-19, they delivered the finished product right on time. The installation was quick and the cleanup thorough. We would certainly recommend this company for any window covering assignment.

Wall to wall sheers

I can’t say enough positive things about this studio! I walked in with a picture of what I was trying to achieve for our master bedroom - wall to wall sheets with a particular type of fold in the drape. Jasmina was able to guide me through step by step and helped match the perfect fabric to my paint and wallpaper swatch’s that would give me the effect I was looking for. I’m thrilled with the final product! The quality is amazing, install easy and it’s exactly how I envisioned it!!

Bedroom blinds

I would highly recommend Shades of Home. I received excellent advice from Marie regarding the best type of blackout blinds. The showroom had a wide variety of choices and Marie made further suggestions when she came to do the measurements. The installer Raj was efficient and very neat. The blinds look great. Thanks. Anne

Condo Drapery

We are thrilled with the end result of the drapery panels and shades selected for our condo by Marie - Shades of Home.
The window placement in the bedrooms are odd and I was at a loss as to what to do. Marie was patient, honest and extremely helpful to solve this dilemma.
Marie gave us numerous fabric choices for our living and dining rooms and the end result is perfect!
Raj and his team were phenomenal! Extremely efficient and his goal was to ensure we were happy. Would highly recommend Shades of Home.

WHO WE ARE - over 25 years in the window covering business

We do one thing, and we do it Really,Really Well.

CALIFORNIA SHUTTERS: We provide Custom Wood Shutters, Eclipse Vinyl Shutters, MaxXmar Wood & Vinyl Shutters, Hunter Douglas Vinyl & Hybrid Shutters and Richwood Engineered Wood Shutters. We will recommend the right shutters at the best price for everyones specific requirments.

Our DRAPERY SPECIALISTS and workroom can create any soft fabric treatment. Our showrooms carry a huge selection of designer drapery fabrics for our clients to choose from. Many of our drapery clients come to us after we have provided 'functional' window treatments in their homes or in their friends home and others have found our showroom on their own.

MAXXMAR offers some of the most innovative and well priced window treatments in the marketplace today. We offer the full line of MaxXmar window fashions at prices our competition can't beat.

HUNTER DOUGLAS: We have been a Hunter Douglas dealer for over 20 years. Both of our showrooms are SHOWCASE SHOWROOMS meaning you will find every Hunter Douglas product on display with staff who can explain every Hunter Douglas option and our volume pricing ensures that it will be unlikely you will find a lower price on you Hunter Douglas Manual and PowerView shades.

SUNGLOW: Specializing in the manufacturing of Sunscreen roller shades for residential and commercial applications, we offer SunGlow to our clients who are looking for oversized shades not available from Hunter Douglas, Elite or MaxXmar. Their experience in Somfy motorization, linked shades, height and width makes them one of our key suppliers for commercial and condo applications.

ELITE WINDOW FASHIONS: Since 1967 this Canadian company has been offering a wide selection of quality window coverings. Well priced with fabrics similar to Hunter Douglases offerings, including e-motion and Somfy motorization.

MOTORIZATION We have been selling, installing and programming motorized shades and drapery long before it became an entry level option for automating window coverings - 25 years to be exact. Knowledge AND experience is an absolute necessity and all of our staff and technical installers are trained. Not only will the shades be properly installed but also programmed and integrated into a variety of smart home systems.

Our sales approach is one of collaboration. Our staff is hired for their ability and trained to spend enough time with the client to fully understand their expectations, needs and budget. Then we can suggest some options and allow the client to make the value decision for themselves.

We spend the extra time with each client to ensure they are choosing the right product that will provide solutions to their needs. We try our best to balance privacy, light control with the right product that fits within the clients budget.

All in all I strive to make the environment and experience as stress-free as possible for my staff and clients.

Sincerely,
Stephen Poxon
Owner
