Thank you so much for checking in. The installation was smooth sailing. The installer did a great job and by the way has been the best installer I have ever worked with. The new roller shades look wonderful and truly complete the rest of the decor. I’m incredibly happy both with the end result as well as the process. My design consultant was a phenomenal help both with selection and design, while guiding me through the process. I cannot thank The Shade Store enough for transforming my house into a beautiful home. Thank you!

Vickie G  | Belmont, CA |  July 18, 2020

I rarely follow-up and give feedback to companies after a purchase...however my experience with The Shade Store was so positive from start to finish that I wanted to share. From my initial contact with Elana to receiving my thank you card/tree, I knew I chose the right company to work with. Elana Citrin's professionalism, helpful, kind, and patient manner is so appreciated. She took the time to help me choose just the right product for my home. Elana ordered my shades, scheduled measurements, and installation. Everything was done professionally and in a timely manner. Both Jose, who came to measure, and Jesus who did the installation, arrived on time and took all safety precautions making me comfortable having them in my home during COVID 19. I will absolutely recommend Elana Citrin to my friends!
