Sharon Zillmer – HOUZZ.COM

I spent many months, earlier this year, searching for drapery for my new apartment. While I didn’t want to re-invent the old pinch pleat drapes my Mom had in the 1980’s I really do not like the current style (which seems to be everywhere) of grommet or rod pocket panels.

I was determined not to give up and was so happy when I found Shades of Home’s website. As soon as I saw their photos of the ripple fold drapes I knew I had to go and see them. Made an appointment and visited their shop on Caledonia Road. Met with Marie and she helped me select the perfect fabric for both my living room and bedroom. Marie also set up a time to meet me so she could take custom measurements. I was impressed because it’s an older building an to say that each room had a few irregularities would be an understatement. Marie told me not to worry… and she was right.

My drapes were delivered on the date promised and the installers were terrific. I am so glad that I took my time and even happier that I was able to work with Shades of Home. Great service… superb quality… highly recommend.

I had been looking for a company to provide draperies for my living and dining rooms and saw the reviews for Shades of Home. I went to their Oakville location one day and met Marie who, although she had been leaving the store, spent the time to go through some fabric samples with me. I set up an appointment for a few days later and Marie came to my home wth several sample books. We found the ideal fabric for side panels and a complementary fabric for sheers. I placed my order and was advised that delivery of the draperies would be in four weeks. The draperies arrived and were installed right on time as promised. The workmanship is great and they are exactly what I was looking for. I am very pleased and will not hesitate to use Shades of Home again!

Mitch Charron – HOUZZ.COM

Our window shades were just completed today and we couldn’t be happier. Shades of Home did an amazing job and I would highly recommend them. Marie and Steve were both true professionals, helping us to choose what type of window coverings we want. They worked within our budget and provided a nice range of options for us to choose. We never felt pressured to make a decision and dealing with them was a true pleasure. Their installer Ben was also very good, he did a great job in the installation process, very courteous and did a very clean job.
Overall, very happy!!

carnone007 – HOUZZ.COM

We had been looking for a place that provided quality custom drapery for a while. We happened to drive by Shades of Home Toronto location and decided to stop in. They weren’t even open yet, they were in the process of setting it up, however Steve and Marie invited us in and told us to take a look around and feel free to ask any questions. Marie was very helpful in providing suggestions in regards to our home. We made an appointment with Marie to come to our home and she brought many different samples for us to look at. Keeping in mind what we were looking for, Marie gave us some suggestions for our kitchen, dining room and living room. A few weeks later everything was installed.
We love the way our kitchen, dining room and living room look and feel now! Marie was very helpful and a pleasure to work with!
We are extremely pleased with everything and would not hesitate to go back.

Shades of Home installed wooden shutters and luminette drapes in number of our rooms. There were some manufacturing issues (not Shades of Home fault) with the luminettes, and Shades of Home were aggressive at identifying and resolving these issues with the manufacturer completely to our satisfaction. Steve and his installation team were reliable and professional – doing what they said they would do at the time they said they would do it. We are delighted with our product.

newcal06 – HOUZZ.COM

I had Marie from Shades of Home design and help me select fabrics for my living room. I had seen an idea on Houzz and she was able to give me exactly the vision that I had in my head. As I was mixing fabrics, I was not sure if my choices would work but her guidance ended with a great result. I love the drapes and valances and have had great comments on the quality and look of them. Marie was in no rush during our consultation and was very patient as it took me some time to make my decisions etc. Would highly recommend Shades of Home!

courtneysherwin – HOUZZ.COM

After looking at a few different providers we decided to go with Shades of Home based on price and positive customer reviews. We were not disappointed!! They provided excellent design advice and they were fantastic to deal with. Our blinds were installed within a few weeks, much quicker than other quotes we got which ranged from 4-8 weeks.

We were really impressed with the level of knowledge, the advice given and the overall experience we had with Shades of Home. I would use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for window coverings.

Kathy Krznaric – HOUZZ.COM

We needed to replace all of the window coverings in our house. I contacted Marie Iannace of Shades of Home. She provided excellent advice on choosing the best window coverings for each of the rooms in our house. As the choices are overwhelming it was so beneficial to have someone like Marie help to narrow down the range of options and to choose the best one(s) in keeping with the design style of our home. Marie has excellent design expertise. We are thrilled with the blinds that were chosen and installed and I will be calling her back to help choose the best window coverings for our living and dining rooms. Thank you as well to Steve for his excellent customer service. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend Shades of Home for any of your window covering needs.

Tania Primiani – HOUZZ.COM

I have used Shades of Home in two locations now. Both times I have been so pleased with services provided. My first house was a complete Job all windows needed to be covered. Marie Iannace helped me choose all window dressings. Was so pleased with choices and install.
My second home had some windows with treatments already hanging and in good condition I just needed them to be more private. Shades of Home came through for me again. I also had some beautiful custom draperies made for my bedrooms.
Shades of Homes went above board for me and steamed my draperies in the dining room that came with my house which I really appreciated.
I would recommend them over and over again. Thank you Marie and Shades of Home.

Samantha G – HOUZZ.COM

I was impressed by the customer service from Shades of Home. I was very indecisive about what to order and I was never rushed or pressured to purchase. Marie was helpful to visit my home on multiple occasions.

knirtdab – HOUZZ.COM

In the summer of 2014 we had our kitchen renovated. To save costs we decided to keep our existing blinds . We desperately needed some color but wanted to keep it simple .
After visiting the showroom in Waterdown, Hilary came to our house and gave us some excellent ideas. The valances we chose were just the right touch of color and shape and when added to the matching chair cushions and table runner , we were able to stay within budget.
I would highly recommend Shades of Home for their excellent service and expertise!

cahobbs – HOUZZ.COM

I was completely happy with the service I received along with the products selected for my home.

The installation was done in a timely and professional manner and I was consistently kept in the loop through frequent communication via email and telephone. I will definitely use Shades of Home when I make another move in the near future.

Window Coverings – HomeStars

We moved into our new house about 2 years ago and contacted Shades of Home to assist us with selecting new living room and dining room window coverings.
They visited our home, suggested several different options and installed the blinds on time and professionally. Everyone we spoke with was courteous and responsive to our needs.
About a year later we recommended Shades of Home to my sister and she was also very pleased with the service and product she purchased.
We recently replaced shutters in our kitchen and den area and Shades of Home again provided us excellent service and quality workmanship.

Drapes For New Condo – HomeStars

A friend recommended that I consult with Marie for drapes in my living room and two bedrooms. I have a busy schedule but was going to consider a couple of other alternatives. That was not necessary. Shades of Home clearly understood what I was looking for and provided me with options that fit my budget. The installation process was very efficient. The team showed up on time and the job was really well done. I felt like Shades of Home cared about my home just as they would if it were their own. And the end results are amazing! I highly recommend their service.

Window Treatments – HomeStars

With a joint living and dining space, our aim was to achieve symmetry with a casual style that suited both a sitting area and eating area. The spaces also required some privacy.

We visited the design centre which was followed up with an in-home consultation with a designer. The process was exceptional with samples left at our home so we could live with the fabrics to get a feel for what we liked best.

After our selection was made, we had sheer horizontal blinds installed for privacy and non-functional drapes for style and the finishing touch. The installation was only a few weeks after our order was placed.

The measurements were on spot and the installer was clean, organized and professional.

Shades For Whole House – HomeStars

To describe “Shades of Home” would mean to use words as “excellent, desirable, professional, courteous, and overall awesome experience”.
They have great people in sales, installation and their customer service is up there with the best in any industry.
We will definitely recommend Marie and her expertise to our friends and relatives and even complete strangers.

We highly recommend Marie of Shades of Home (Oakville) to anyone looking to get custom window treatments for their home.

Great Customer Service, Great Product, Easy Help With Minor Issues – HomeStars

We just moved in to a new two story house in Mississauga and hired Shades of Home to get shades/blinds for all the major windows of our house (total of almost 15 shades). Marie was great in guiding us through all the different choices. She came to our house to see the space as well.

While it did take some time for the order to come through, the shades were installed expediently by Raj, and he was always happy to help (whether by phone or coming to the house) for minor adjustments.

The product itself was amazing. We got mainly mandalay shades, but also shutters in the bathrooms. The major windows were motorized and the product works amazingly.

We encountered a minor issue when the incorrect shutter was installed in our bathroom. Marie arranged for the product to be exchanged immediately and now everything is top notch.

Great customer service! And they had VERY competitive pricing. For all 15 shades (with multiple that were motorized), Shades of Home was STILL cheaper than the same number of shades WITHOUT motorization from the competitors.

I would definitely recommend Shades of Home to others.

Window Blinds – HomeStars

Looking for blinds without a heavy handed sales pitch? Shades of Home is your best option! I would highly recommend them. Marie came to my home within days of my calling her. She was extremely knowledgeable, explained the plethora of options available and took exact measurements with a special tool (so there is no room for errors). She also provided me with a quotation the same day. I didn’t have to deal with any pushy sales pitch or marketing gimmicks. Solid, professional services. Got my blinds 3 weeks later and they look fabulous. Many thanks to Marie and her installer Raj for a job well done. Will certainly recommend you to my family and friends! Nina
Marie had a lot of good recommendations for my townhouse unit which gets a lot of sun. Her colour recommendations were bang on and She was very professional and the product well priced.

Shades of Home custom made blinds for our entire home. It was a great experience from initial consultation to installation. Would recommend them to everyone.

My experience with Shades of Home was fantastic! Hilary was excellent, coming for a home consultation where she took measurements and provided examples and recommendations. We have a large bay window, which meant our options were slightly more limited, but with Hillary’s recommendations we were able to find something that we are very happy with. Most impressively was that all this was done while still sticking to timeline and budget promises.

Blinds And Curtains – HomeStars

At first my experience with Shades of Home was really great. Hilary was super helpful, even coming out to my home personally. The curtains were beautiful, however the roman blinds I had ordered needed to be returned. I felt as though the return process took far too long and it seemed as though Steve the owner was too busy with larger clients to consider me a priority. After weeks of call backs I did, manage to have the blinds replaced, though I had to go pick them up myself rather than them being delivered. I am now very happy with both the blinds and curtains.

Custom Drapes – HomeStars

I contacted Hilary at Shades of Home with a view to having my kitchen and dinette custom draped. Hilary proved to be the right choice as she looked after me extremely well and the custom drapes are fabulous. I have since ordered dining room custom drapes and I am sure that I will be more than satisfied. Good service with a high quality result at a fair price with an on time delivery is hard to beat. .

Steve is an exceptional person. He really cares about properly outfitting your windows. I never knew such talent existed with window treatment. He gets the right colours together so beautifully. My favorite is the dreamy double cell blinds in the den. I would recommend Steve to build your – dreamy windows.

“I purchased blinds for our entire house after it was built, Steve came out to discuss some options that would look good.He had great suggestions. The blinds look fantastic and have held up very well. I was very happy with the install and the finished product so much that I just had my walk out basement done as well with Marie.
Thanks

I dealt with Stephen at Shades of Home. I found him helpful and easy to deal with. He is knowledgeable and knows his stuff. He did not try to sell me something that I did not need.

Blinds Through Whole House – HomeStars

A superior service and willing to explore alternatives in window coverings whether drapes or blinds and shutters. After consultations which were made easy by their friendly approach and suggestions, our blinds were installed efficiently and with care. Have recommended Shades of Home to many friends with confidence that the process from selection to installation will be great.

Installation Of Sun Screen For The Apartment – HomeStars

We need sun screens for our brand new condo unit mostly for sunlight control due to the large SW facing windows. We also want to preserve the lake view as much as possible while the screens are covering the windows. Marie was obviously very experienced and quick in helping us find the right combination of screen type and colour to match the décor. She even managed to get the manufacturer to expedite the delivery and Kirk was very competent in getting them installed in a much shorter than usual wait time due to our pending month long vacation. We are very pleased with their service and would not hesitate to recommend them to our neighbours.

Stephen’s quality of service is exceptional and his input in making the right decisions for my home was invaluable. He is very knowledgeable in his field and is very quick to understand a client’s need and provide alternative solutions that are both practical and esthetically pleasing. Stephen is also very easy to work with, friendly and exceptionally trustworthy. It’s been almost 4 years after our installation and all of our window coverings are still in perfect working condition and look as good as the day they went in. We have not had a single fault with any of them which is indicative of not just the great quality of the product but also the high quality of installation. Stephen provides true value for money and more importantly, longevity and durability in the products he provides. I have no hesitation in recommending Stephen.

We bought shutters and blinds for all windows in our new home. Steve Poxon, the owner of Shades of Home was easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. His prices were very competitive and the installation was completed on time and without incident. There were a couple of minor issues later that required adjustments and Steve sent his repair person over promptly. This was the third time I have purchased blinds from Shades of Home. The first time I purchased from them was in 2004 when we had shutters installed to cover an eight foot high set of sliding patio doors off the kitchen. Steve mentioned to me that, because of the size of the doors, the blinds may sag slightly over time and he would come back to adjust them if necessary. They did sag a bit after a while but I never bothered to call until 3 years later when we were selling the house. I don’t think Steve had expected to be called 3 years later and he certainly was not obligated to do anything but he came over and fixed the problem personally.

Excellent service. Steve is knowledgeable about the product, the alternatives and he has an excellent interior designer and install technician. In fact, when I was missing the dimensions of a condominium property in Toronto, Steve was resourceful enough to source the dimensions of this condo unit from the web. Sundeep

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 – HomeStars

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.

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!
