Window Treatments for Custom Homes

A Certified INTERIOR DESIGNER or DECORATOR is the best partner to have when you have countless, ongoing decisions to make as you transit from decided on the new build or renovation to completion right through to the day you finally take full possession of your new space.

Poor advice from an inexperienced or uncertified designer in the early stages of a project can lead to cascading issues as the project unfolds that could have been avoided if you had been dealing with a qualified and experienced Interior Designer.  And many of the initial problems created can’t be un-done without extensive re-building, an expensive and time consuming and emotionally draining experience.

We’ve heard the stories and seen the drama from a distance.  Choosing the right design partner is as important  as choosing the right contractor, electrician. plumber, painter, landscape contractor, kitchen manufacturer, bathroom remodeler etc, etc.

At Shades of Home we position ourselves as the expert in all hard and soft window coverings.  We’re brought in at the beginning of many projects to discuss motorization and home automation options – ensuring that during the build all necessary wiring and support structures are incorporated in the initial design.

Towards the completion of a project, when colours and finishes are chosen we are the go-to professionals ensuring that your window coverings, are selected and installed seamlessly.

Our goal is to be the professional homeowners and designers rely on for impeccable service, experience, knowledge and selection.If you are a certified interior designer, contact us, set up an account and benefit from our expertise in supplying all types of window fashions and receive the best to-the-trade discounts and commissions in Toronto and Oakville.
