Jason P  | Chicago, IL |  June 2, 2021

So the blinds look great. They've made an already dark bedroom even darker (particularly helpful on days like today when I get home from work at 7am and need to sleep!). One neighbor, in fact, has been so impressed with the appearance that she is considering setting up her own appointment.

Ann C  | Chicago, IL |  May 13, 2021

The world of shades and the hundreds of options and configurations amazes and confuses me, all at the same time! All is fine, they look great and we are very happy! I appreciate your patience with us as we made our shade selections.

And I'm really happy with the fabric and color for the drapes. It really made a huge difference to the look and feel of our home. Thank you so much for all of your help. It's always a wild ride planning something big like this virtually but I'm so happy with the results. 

Eddie C  | Chicago, IL |  March 17, 2021

I have been meaning to reach out and let you know how wonderful it has been working with you on this project. The installation went wonderfully and your installers are a dream to work with. I look forward to the next project with you! 

Mercedes B  | Chicago, IL |  March 14, 2021

My installation went great! The installer arrived right on time and worked very quickly. I also appreciated that he informed me about an initial miscalculation which meant he had to patch up a small hole. I wouldn’t have even seen it (probably ever) if he didn’t say anything and he offered to touch it up for me too, but I told him not to worry about it because I’d be hanging up some wall decor soon and surely I’ll be making some needed touch-ups and can do it then. I’m feeling very energized to make decor choices. I also was able to sleep way past sunrise this morning. I’ll be reaching out soon for the next order!  

Derek C  | Chicago, IL |  March 13, 2021

Everything looks great. We’ll be in touch should we need something else!  

Cindy C  | Chicago, IL |  March 13, 2021

I am very pleased with the results and the entire process. The install pro was efficient and did a great job.

These treatments are a vast improvement. This should be the biggest compliment of all - my husband was not that enthusiastic before these went up and is now raving about how much he loves them. He is now the one pushing to get the living room redone.

The installers did an excellent job in a timely yet careful manner. They were pleasant to work with and efficient as well. The curtains look great; they add a warmth and softness to the rooms that was lacking with blinds-only. I also enjoyed working with you, as you provided information and guidance that helped me make the final decision on the material and the color. All in all, very pleased! Thanks for a very pleasant curtain-shopping experience!

We will certainly give you a ring when we ramp up our next window treatment project

Diana  S  | Chicago, IL |  August 20, 2020

My shades arrived on time and were installed today. With the pandemic impacting all of our lives, I doubted the wisdom of placing the order at this time. However, everything was handled professionally and efficiently. The installers were courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful. The main office proactively covered off on the project bases giving me little reason for concern. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
