Our clients have shared their experience with Shades of Home.

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.
We’ve purchased from Shades of Home twice now to complete our entire home. We are extremely satisfied with both the product and installation of all of our custom drapes and shades. Marie is amazing to work with and really knows what she is doing. She is extremely professional, patient, and insightful when it comes to different trends and style options. We highly recommend Marie of Shades of Home (Oakville) to anyone looking to get custom window treatments for their home.
I used shades of home not once but twice for blinds and curtains. I was extremely pleased with their prices and especially the home service they provided to me. My home looks brand new again!
Thanks Marie for the wonderful job and the amazing color selection. Was a pleasure working with you.
We recently purchased drapes and blackout blinds from Shades of Home for our condo and we could not be happier. Marie’s advise on which time of drapes and blinds would best suit our needs was invaluable. The installers were on time and completed the installation quickly and left the place spotless. I would not hesitate to recommend them to my friends.
Marie expertly guided us through the many selections of shades and blinds that they had at the store. Based on our needs, she gave the the pros and cons of the the products we were looking at until we made our final selection.
The shades we ordered were exactly what we wanted and they looked great in our bedrooms. The installation went smoothly.
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!!
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.
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!
Shades of Home provided invaluable in-home advice on dressing windows in our living and dining rooms. The project included two bow windows (which present some challenges) and two single casements. The treatment and fabrics suggested were perfect. The draperies were beautifully sewn and the installation carried out in a most professional manner. Budgets and deadlines were met. It was a pleasure to work with this company; I would not hesitate to recommend Shades of Home, Oakville.
When my husband and I were looking for a professional designer’s touch in choosing new window coverings for our home, we chose Shades of Home because they carried brands we were interested in and offered free in home design service. It was the perfect choice for our needs! We completed the project in two stages and Marie came to our home both times with a carload of fabric samples and had a great eye for suggesting solutions. She listened to our needs, respected our ideas, and helped us coordinate our blinds and drapes. Both times the order was completed in the estimated time frame according to the quoted price and installation was fast, professional and perfectly executed at our convenience. We are thrilled with the results!
I had a new townhome with no idea how to dress my windows!! Marie from Shades of home gave me all the guidance I needed to make it look amazing!!! They were prompt and delivered and installed everything in a timely manner. What I was most impressed with was the after market service when I needed a few louvers replaced in my shutters. They did not hesitate to stand behind their product and give me great customer service. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
Shades of Home installed light blocking roller shades and sheer blinds in our new condominium. The results exceeded our expectations. Marie and her support team were professional, efficient and the cost was very competitive. We were pleased and would recommend Shades of Home without hesitation.
