Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

Thank you to Marie at Shades Of Home for all her great advice. She assisted us in choosing new custom drapes, sheers and roman shades for our main floor. She also helped us choose paint colours to co-ordinate. Everything looks awesome! I'll definitely call for our next reno.

BLINDS/DRAPERY

WE RECENTLY HAD CUSTOM BLINDS AND DRAPERY SUPPLIED AND INSTALLED BY SHADES OF HOME AND WERE COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH THE PRODUCT AND THE LEVEL OF SERVICE PROVIDED BY HILARY AND KIRK. BOTH WERE VERY PROFESSIONAL AND EFFICIENT AND WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM.

California Shutters

We were looking for a solution to heavy draperies and expensive curtains that kept breaking (Hunter Douglas blinds) we immediately saw a difference in the quality of window coverings, maintaining heat in the winter, and keeping shade in the summer months - helps with lowering utility bills a bit while looking great. I would highly recommend Shades of Home - no gimmicks and just delivery of what product we had been searching for.

Custom Drapery

Thanks so much to the team and Shades of Home, espcecially Marie. The advice she gave was great and the drapes we chose look lovely. The quality of the drapes and the installation of them was very professional. We were pleasantly surprised at how quick it was from point of order to point of installation.

California Shutters

Just had our California shutters installed on Saturday from "Shades of Home" and absolutely love them. They were awesome to work with and gave recommendations, suggestions etc to help me choose the best shutters for the space. Hilary was the designer and Kirk installed the shutters. Thank you!

WHO WE ARE - over 25 years in the window covering business

We do one thing, and we do it Really,Really Well.

CALIFORNIA SHUTTERS: We provide Custom Wood Shutters, Eclipse Vinyl Shutters, MaxXmar Wood & Vinyl Shutters, Hunter Douglas Vinyl & Hybrid Shutters and Richwood Engineered Wood Shutters. We will recommend the right shutters at the best price for everyones specific requirments.

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
Owner
