Pleated or Honeycomb Shades?

Honeycomb ShadesWe have many customers here in the Southbury area who ask about pleated shades.

Industry leaders such as Hunter Douglas took the idea of pleated shades and created the first Duette® honeycomb shade.

Go to a Pro for Window Treatment Installation

Window Treatment InstallationOne of the first things people do when they begin shopping for new window treatments is to measure their windows themselves. This is a great start as those dimensions will help window covering professionals help you select a suitable blind, shutter, or shade. While we can use your measurements to get a general idea of your product cost, having your windows professionally measured before purchasing will ensure that your blinds and shades fit and function perfectly. You’ll also avoid costly re-order charges and delays that can happen when you do your own measuring. Stop by our showroom in Brandford, serving all of Connecticut, to get started on finding the perfect window treatments for you! [Read more…]
