Everything is great! I really appreciate your advice to mount the treatments for the sliding door under the crown moldings. It looks great and I wish I had done everything earlier.  

Kiersten M  | Menlo Park , CA |  September 15, 2020

All is GREAT. We are a fully window-treatment’d house now. :) I think my favorite are the white velvet drapes in the master. They are just stunning and make me feel like I’m in a hotel on vacation! The girls all love their motorized shades too. Makes it so easy since they have such big windows. A huge thank you for all of your help!!

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!
