The Design Team at Shades of Home

First Step:  We’ll help you select the right window coverings

Functional window coverings are chosen first for their ability to provide privacy, light control and energy efficiency.  Some products such as Silhouettes, Pirouettes and Banded Shades provide ‘multiple’ functionality from complete privacy, room darkening or a clear unobstructed view.  Roller Shades are available with light filtering, sunscreen and Black-out (opaque) fabrics.

All of the shades we offer from Hunter Douglas, SunGlow, Elite and Maxxmar have unique operating features, fabrics, styles, headers and motorization options.

Our design staff will walk you through the various types and recommend the solution that fits your space, decor, privacy needs, taste and budget.  

Second Step: Motorization Options

Simple Operation


We offer many different power options to accommodate all windows. Choose between a rechargeable motor, a lithium battery tube, or a DC power supply or 120VAC household current to power your motorized blinds and shades.
We have motorization solutions for shades from as small as 14″ and up to 156″ wide and multi-band shades with one motor operating up to 6 shades in a row.

Control your shades individually or in groups with the touch of a button.  Set favorite positions, set upper and lower limits and more.
