Whole House New build

Our experience with Shades of Home was fantastic. We walked into the Toronto showroom with little to no ideas for our build. Marie gave us great ideas for our whole house. The install team was as professional as they come, explaining their plans from the moment they got in the door. We couldn't be happier with the results. The curtains and shades all look and feel amazing. Highly recommend.

Hunter Douglas Sonnette Blinds for Bedrooms

We recently purchased Hunter Douglas Sonnette motorized roller blinds from Shades of Home for both our bedrooms (3 windows in all). Steve met us at our home and clearly guided us through the process of selecting the best blinds for our needs as well as a suitable colour for our decor. He carefully measured the window frames, suggesting just how the blinds should best be placed within the frame, and his measurements turned out to be absolutely accurate. He provided very competitive pricing on the product and kept us up to date on the order delivery time from Hunter Douglas. Steve was also very thoughtful and accommodating in arranging an installation time that fit with our schedule. The installation itself was done by Raj and his assistant and went flawlessly.

Window treatments for home

We were very pleased with the end results! Marie made the process easy and seamless which we appreciated. Marie's expertise helped us select the correct window treatments and fabrics for our space. She was also very collaborative and responsive to our needs. The installers were amazing. They were on time, tidy, very experienced, detail oriented, efficient and very respectful of our home (i.e. the walls and flooring). Thank you again to all. Well worth thd investment. We would surely recommend Shades of Home as well as their installation team (Raj and co.) to all. N &S

Excellent service and product

Marie at Shades of Home attended to me on my search for just the right window covers for windows of odd sizes. She showed utmost professionality and understanding of my needs, and made the purchase feel easy and affordable. The installers were fantastic and absolutely exact. From start to finish, I couldn't have been happier.
I have waited for a while before writing this review in order to settle in with my new window shades so I can say from a place of conviction: I highly recommend Shades of Home!

New Hunter Douglas blinds for upstairs windows.

We visited Shades of Home in Oakville and were helped by Hillary.
She came into our home, measured accurately, helped us choose room darkening blinds (where needed) and we are so pleased with our blinds.
Hillary is efficient and so are her installers.
Thank you.

Amazing and modern blinds

We recently move into our new condo and the blinds in it were outdated so we wanted to replace them ASAP and we wanted something that looked super clean and modern to match the design we have in our place.
Jasmina helped us pick the best blinds for us and for our budget, great service from buying the blinds to getting them installed, i highly recommend shades of home.

Roller Shades / Maxxmar Cellular shades

Dealing with Steve and Marie was easy, informative and very enjoyable! They gave us great advise without overpowering us with their own ideas. The technicians that came to install everything (Raj and Sarla) were excellent ... he called ahead of time / got her on time and did all the work very quickly and tidy - leaving ZERO mess anywhere!

Our DRAPERY SPECIALISTS and workroom can create any soft fabric treatment. Our showrooms carry a huge selection of designer drapery fabrics for our clients to choose from. Many of our drapery clients come to us after we have provided 'functional' window treatments in their homes or in their friends home and others have found our showroom on their own.

MAXXMAR offers some of the most innovative and well priced window treatments in the marketplace today. We offer the full line of MaxXmar window fashions at prices our competition can't beat.

HUNTER DOUGLAS: We have been a Hunter Douglas dealer for over 20 years. Both of our showrooms are SHOWCASE SHOWROOMS meaning you will find every Hunter Douglas product on display with staff who can explain every Hunter Douglas option and our volume pricing ensures that it will be unlikely you will find a lower price on you Hunter Douglas Manual and PowerView shades.

SUNGLOW: Specializing in the manufacturing of Sunscreen roller shades for residential and commercial applications, we offer SunGlow to our clients who are looking for oversized shades not available from Hunter Douglas, Elite or MaxXmar. Their experience in Somfy motorization, linked shades, height and width makes them one of our key suppliers for commercial and condo applications.

ELITE WINDOW FASHIONS: Since 1967 this Canadian company has been offering a wide selection of quality window coverings. Well priced with fabrics similar to Hunter Douglases offerings, including e-motion and Somfy motorization.

MOTORIZATION We have been selling, installing and programming motorized shades and drapery long before it became an entry level option for automating window coverings - 25 years to be exact. Knowledge AND experience is an absolute necessity and all of our staff and technical installers are trained. Not only will the shades be properly installed but also programmed and integrated into a variety of smart home systems.

Our sales approach is one of collaboration. Our staff is hired for their ability and trained to spend enough time with the client to fully understand their expectations, needs and budget. Then we can suggest some options and allow the client to make the value decision for themselves.

We spend the extra time with each client to ensure they are choosing the right product that will provide solutions to their needs. We try our best to balance privacy, light control with the right product that fits within the clients budget.

All in all I strive to make the environment and experience as stress-free as possible for my staff and clients.

Sincerely,
Stephen Poxon
