Want to know why? It is an ongoing check on where we stand and an opportunity to put our best foot forward. A consumer can search and find the best match of window treatment service providers for themselves.

We joined Mr. S’s pool of potential shade retailers when he called after receiving our New Homeowner postcard when he moved to Chicago’s Albany Park neighborhood. He had a fantastic home filled with light provided by 31 windows. As a new homeowner, it is an incredible expense. This gentleman had done his homework. He asked us within the first 90 seconds of his phone call, “Why you? Why should I buy from you?”

To best serve our clients, we always ask ourselves this question, and we are ready and willing to answer. So, without a second thought, we shared:

  • We love what we do, and it shows in our work.
  • We work with you in your space at your pace; we are happy to do just one window or your entire home.
  • Every team member is helpful and treats every client like a VIP.
  • We will make recommendations to your home based on what we learn about you and your needs.
  • We exclusively offer Hunter Douglas, the absolute best in the window coverings business. With the best product, the best warranty, and the best installers, we can take the best care of you.
  • We often have promotions that allow you to get precisely what you want at a price that suits your budget.
  • Check out our 50+ five-star reviews left by clients who have worked with us.

We Got The Invitation To Mr. S’s Home

With promotional pricing, free upgrades, and rebates, we were able to offer him an upgraded fabric from his final selection with a competitor at the best value of all the quotes he and his wife had received. Our client shared that our online reviews gave them the confidence to move forward with us.

We returned two weeks later with 31 LiteRise, top-down, bottom-up Hunter Douglas Architella Duette honeycomb shades.

Selecting the Right Window Treatments & Functionality

Our clients loved the amount of light that the shades let in but with complete privacy. Top-down bottom-up allows their shades to expose the number of windows they wish on the top half, giving them complete privacy with a tree-top view in the middle of the big city. In addition to complimentary upgrades, they could take advantage of a rebate on their shades.

We went with the whole house of honeycomb shades. While many homeowners select blackout fabric in the bedrooms, this couple was sure they wanted to keep the light that their big beautiful windows gave and went with light-filtering in the entire home. They were pleased with their decision. The shades look fantastic. They love that the top-down, bottom-up feature, even in the middle of the city, created a private oasis where you expose the top portion of the window, allowing sunshine into the room and still have 100% privacy even in an urban area where homes are only a couple of yards from each other.
