New blinds

We were extremely satisfied with the service provided at Shades of Home. We walked into their store on Speers Rd and within 3 days Hillary was at our home to give us advice, measure and provide a quote. Within 3 weeks our blinds were impeccably installed by Ben ahead of the promised delivery date. Such a great experience.

Condo Drapes and Blackout shades

Marie at Shades of Home provided great advise when we went to choose our drapes and blackout shades. She was very professional both at the store and during the home visit. The installers were on time, made sure the drapes were properly hung, and cleaned up after themselves. We could not be happier with the drapes and the service we received from Shades of Home.

Draperies

We recently purchased draperies for our front room and we could not be more pleased with the service we received from Shades of Home. Hilary came to our house with samples so that we could see how the fabrics would look with our furniture and was able to suggest solutions that fit with our budget. Ben, who came to install the new draperies and rods, was very professional and meticulous, making sure that the draperies hung properly.
We were so satisfied that we ordered custom drakes foe our dining room as well. Once again, the service from both Hilary and Ben was perfect. We highly recommend Shades of Home.

Living and Dining Room Draperies

I had been looking for a company to provide custom draperies for my living and dining rooms and saw the reviews for Shades of Home. I popped in there one day and met Marie who, although she had been heading out the door, spent some time with me showing samples based on the description of what I was looking for. I set up an appointment for a few days later and Marie came to my home with fabric samples. We found the perfect fabric for side panels and found a complementary fabric for sheers. I placed my order and was advised that delivery would be in four weeks. The draperies were delivered and installed right on schedule last week. The workmanship is great and the draperies are exactly what I was looking for. Needless to say, I am very pleased and will not hesitate to use Shades of Home again!

Living and Dining Room Drapery

Shades of home provided invaluable in-home advice on dressing windows in our living and dining rooms. The project included two bow windows (which present some challenges) and two single casements. The treatment and fabrics suggested were perfect. The draperies were beautifully sewn and the installation carried out in a most professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Shades of Home, Oakville.

Window Coverings - design and installation

When we were looking for a professional designer's touch in choosing new window coverings for our home, we chose Shades of Home because they carried brands we were interested in and offered free in home design service. It was the perfect choice for our needs! Marie came to our home with a carload of fabric samples and had a great eye for suggesting solutions. She listened to our needs and respected our ideas and helped us coordinate our blinds and drapes. We are thrilled with the results.

***

WHO WE ARE - over 35 years in the window covering business

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

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 - 35 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 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
