My sincere thanks for the effort and help you. I couldn’t be happier with the result. This kind of service makes it easy to recommend The Shade Store anytime someone asks me where my window coverings are from.

The shades and valances are absolutely beautiful and perfect! We love them and get lots of compliments. We’ve given out your name/number to many clients so we hope it ends up bringing you business. Thanks again for hanging in there (pun intended) with us to get the order perfect. You were an amazing trooper and we are very grateful.

The shades look beautiful in our bedroom and we are so happy with them! Your help was invaluable throughout this process. We also had someone ask us about our shades and I mentioned The Shade Store and how great it was to work with you. Thank you again. 

Alexis B  | Portola Valley, CA |  May 6, 2020

It turned out better than our expectations! Thank you for your patience and support through this. I am sure we will work together again. 

Cody C  | San Francisco, CA |  April 24, 2020

It’s great. Installation was flawless. Whoever my installation technician was is A+++ The shade looks great. 

Lois A  | San Mateo, CA |  April 19, 2020

Just to let you know that my shades did get installed today, and the worker was very prompt and efficient. He wore a mask, gloves, and even booties over his shoes to avoid tracking in dirt or virus. All the shades were set up correctly without any furniture moving or fuss required. All debris was removed. And I do think they work very well to block out the light in the two south facing guest bedrooms. Thanks for all your help. 

Gina S  | Menlo Park, CA |  March 27, 2020

I am incredibly happy with all aspects of the business I did with The Shade Store in Stanford Mall. I wanted to keep it simple and clean and the Design Consultant gave me a lot of guidance without trying to break my bank. Although, shades are not cheap, their prices were competitive to all the other stores around. I had some oddly shaped windows, so she did a special order for me. The whole process was the exact timeline that she said and the man who came to measure and install was incredibly precise, professional and kind. I chose the mechanical shades with a beige Sunbrella material. It looks great in modern home and works incredibly well! 5 stars for The Shade Store in Stanford Mall! 

Gina S  | Menlo Park, CA |  March 27, 2020

The installer came this morning and installed the shades. He was awesome! He did an incredible job and we LOVE them! I am so happy with the choices we made. The mechanical shades were a great choice so thank you for leaning me that way!! I am thrilled! Thank you for all your help. I am very happy I did business with you. 

Tim & Anna W  | Santa Clara, CA |  March 10, 2020

We love our drapes! Thank you for all your help!  

Sara B  | Mountain View, CA |  March 4, 2020

I love the shade, it looks very good. And I am very happy that it is flushed with the frame. I do appreciate all your advice, the end product is beautiful. I'll definitely recommend The Shade Store and especially you to my friends. 

Manish H  | Sunnyvale, CA |  February 6, 2020

The shades were installed on our patio door and we are very happy with the shades, the install process and how it was set up. They look very nice and operate well too. 

Deanne  S  | Half Moon Bay, CA |  February 4, 2020

Your technician installed the solar shades today. He arrived at 8:01 this morning and was done by 11. He did an excellent job, and he’s also a very nice young man. Thanks again for your help. These shades will make a big difference in those three rooms. 

Catarina P  | Half Moon Bay, CA |  January 28, 2020

Everything went very well, the installer couldn't have been better, and the shades are looking perfect. They are beautiful, and it was a huge improvement to the house, specially yesterday evening and this morning. I'm very happy with with all the choices, especially with the motorized one for my bedroom, it was a luxury pulling it up this morning without having to get up. Thank you for all your work and help choosing everything, it was a pleasure doing business with you. 

Francesca & Davide A  | Redwood City, CA |  January 28, 2020

Everything went well! Thank you for your help. We are very happy about everything. Now we can schedule an appointment for the kitchen and living room blinds. 

Van & Kathy J  | Woodside, CA |  January 24, 2020

We are glad we measured and discussed so many times, as a corner install is very complex. The champagne color is beautiful and we are happy with choice. We love the look of them both up and down... and enjoys the evenings as they keep noise out, cold out and light out - a trifecta! 

Lisa & Rich W  | San Carlos, CA |  January 18, 2020

I am a local interior designer that purchased roman shades for my own family room. I am completely surprised with the quality and customer service I received at The Shade Store at Stanford Mall. From the customer service at the store to the measure and finally the install all prompt and courteous. Highly recommend the Shade Store. 

Lisa & Rich W  | San Carlos, CA |  January 17, 2020

I am very impressed with my window treatments! To be honest I haven't used The Shade Store much due to a bad experience a few years ago however this experience has definitely changed my mind. The quality is top notch from product to customer service to installation super satisfied. I am very impressed and will definitely be using you on future projects. 

Randolph R  | Kihei, HI |  January 4, 2020

I am so pleased and in awe with the solar shade from The Shade Store. The fabric is outstanding and extrude a fabulous elegance. The 10 % light filtration looking outward met my expectations at 100%. The motorized shade well ... funny I get this feeling of thrill (how smooth the movement combined with the sound) indeed, this is a superior product. I will forever share with friends and family my impressive experience with my purchase from The Shade Store and the about the professional knowledge from the sale staff.

The two cellar shades for both bedrooms are beautiful. Thank you and The Shade Store. The fabric is elegant and the function (Transparency:Light Filtering) gives a stunning effect of play on light-magical. The shade is a total complement to my desires for style, elegance, and function. Thank you 

Barbara F  | Menlo Park, CA |  October 30, 2019

Thank you for the wonderful service. I have decided to keep the shades I ordered. They really are modern and clean looking I love the valance and do not want a long cord. The mechanism I have works great so I am okay with the placement. Thank you for your support.

Jeanne/Rob  L.  | San Jose, CA |  October 20, 2019

The shades are great. The kitchen one goes perfectly and does exactly what we want it to do. The bedroom ones have enabled us to sleep better and block out the outside nightlights just as we hoped. The color of the shades changes as the sun changes but we are sleeping when we have them down so all is well. Alexis and Elio installed them and they were fabulous. The went right to work, worked well as a team and instructed us well on how to use the remotes. So far so good. Overall, we are very satisfied and happy with the whole purchase and experience. Thanks for all your help and advice.

Joyce C  | Los Altos, CA |  August 29, 2019

I had such a fantastic experience working with Teresa at the Stanford Shopping Center location. I had just moved into a new home and was overwhelmed about how to make good window treatment selections. Teresa was kind, knowledgable, and very patient with me. Over a few meetings (she was willing to meet with me as much as I needed), we looked at photos of my house, along with Pinterest photos of what I would like to achieve with my windows. In addition to her knowledge on The Shade Store options, she provided a designer's eye and helped me finalize my selections! I am sooo happy I selected The Shade Store - I love how my windows look (I got woven and fabric romans) and the motorized shades work well! Overall, this process has been a wonderful experience and I plan on using The Shade Store again in the future! 

Joyce C  | Los Altos, CA |  August 27, 2019

The installation went great and we are absolutely loving all our shades! We’ve also set up the iPad app too and it’s working great! Thank you for making this experience so incredible and for helping me select the right shades for the house.

Courtney S  | San Jose, CA |  May 17, 2019

Just wanted to let you know that we got our shades installed last Friday and we love them! The drapes look great.The low profile track worked out great with our lowered ceilings and we love that we can keep 100% of our sliding glass doors visible when they're opened. We got the remotes and app set up and have set up a daily schedule for our shades to raise and lower. My only regret is that I didn't get an automated shade for that small kitchen window because I love the other ones so much. Anyways, just wanted to reach out and thank you for your help. The shades look and work great and complement our remodel. You were great to work with and we appreciate your expertise and guidance through the process.

Debbie K  | Los Altos, CA |  April 11, 2019

My kids love their new shades! My daughter said that she feels so "grown-up" now (we got rid of the pink) and my son can sleep longer cuz the shade is not stuck open. Thanks for your expert help. You made this process seamless and easy for me.

The Shade Store is a special business offering excellent customer service. The expertise and friendliness of the designer at the Palo Alto store was refreshing. She was helpful both during my visit to the store as we discussed the variety of window treatments available, as well as later by phone when I requested additional swatches.
