2014 is a year of new possibilities, changes, a new you. And it’s time to make some changes. I’m here to help you make those changes to your windows.

You have had the basic, off the shelf, low quality verticals since moving in. Half are chipped, some are warped. They just need to go! Custom made verticals are higher quality, and the price is surprisingly affordable. Custom can fit all windows, and all budgets as well. Plus you are getting items that are more your style. And yes, people are still buying verticals.

Fancy Vinyl Blinds…

By: KarenDECOR1202A

So after the last week of trying to clean the shades that are on my front sunroom windows, I decided I needed to start over.  Of course, the shades are about ten years old – they are the pleated style in an off white color.  They used to have a pattern on them that seems to have faded over the years, but they function just as well as when we got them. This, of course, was why I had tried so hard to clean them, that and I really didn’t want to spend money to replace them.

Venetian Blinds – Not So Boring Anymore?

By: Karen

After recently buying new crank out windows, and getting them installed – I realized I was going to have a hard time finding window treatments. The issue was, the old blinds that I had, which were 2” wood slats, were far too thick to fit inside of my window frame – and I personally don’t enjoy the way blinds look when they are mounted outside of the window – at least if there is any choice whatsoever. Being that our windows had about an 1 ¼” depth, it seemed that there was the option of finding something that would work.

Mini Blinds

By: Sai
I feel like mini blinds have been around forever. Why have they lasted so long? What makes them so special? Why do people like them so much? I remember when I was growing up you could just pick up a set of mini blinds at a corner store and put them up. There was one time that the blinds I bought were too big, but I made them fit. I took a knife and cut them to fit the window, those were the times. Nowadays mini blinds have grown to a point where they are all that matters. They are not your pick up and go type of blinds to just have privacy.

Who Puts A Window in the Shower??

By: Karen

After moving into my new apartment, I discovered the bathroom window, was actually located in the shower.  Not just in the shower, but directly across from the faucet, so if I was taking a shower, I was completely exposed to the outside world.  I’m not sure why someone thought this was a good idea, the bathroom is on the first floor of what I consider to be a pretty busy street.  Clearly, privacy is a huge concern! At the same time, the window is hit with water anytime anyone showers, which eliminates all possibility of using an attractive fabric shade – I can only imagine it would get moldy, and fast.  In my previous apartment, I had a decorative curtain over the window that provided privacy, which I had brought with me in the intention of re-hanging it.
