We got a call from a young woman, almost apologetically, asking if we’d come out for only one room, her bathroom. With a commitment to meet our clients, we decided from day one that we would help those who would call us whether it was with help for one window or their entire home. For us, this is part of our commitment to true customer service. [Read more…]

“I have a valance that needs to be updated” was what this client in Glen Ellyn, Il said when she called us. The window coverings were the last step in a project that included new paint and crown molding in their new home. This valance had once been perfect. Although, it takes a long time for the right custom drapery or top treatment to go out of style or become dated, they do and this one had.
It was once the perfect addition to the living room, but the other updates in the home simply made it look old and out of place. To my client’s surprise, she learned that her husband liked the existing valance even less than she did, and he was also ready for a change. [Read more…]
Often clients find us through social media. Consumer’s count on the experiences of others to determine which companies they should invite in their home. This was the case when a young couple in a new custom home in Hinsdale, IL gave us a call. Having clearly done their research, this couple had an idea of what they wanted in terms of product and look. It was important to not have anything that looked cheap, but also not to go crazy with purchasing the most expensive window coverings for every window in the home. This is an outstanding approach for a client-provider relationship. We will work with you to determine what look works for your home and then which product will get you in your price range.

We selected vertical Hunter Douglas Luminette® Privacy Sheers and their horizontal companion Silhouette® Window Shadings across the entire back of the home. It is gorgeous! [Read more…]

While you can reduce the amount of electricity you use lighting rooms with skylights, you may spend a lot more cooling these rooms in summer. [Read more…]
