Before the appointment we will send you some short product videos to give you some inspiration and ideas.
Give us a tour of your home and walk us through what you need in each room. Do you need blackout shades to sleep or are you happy with light filtering shades? Do you need cords to operate tall windows or do you prefer a cordless or motorization plan?
We will bring in some sample books for you to browse through while we measure each window. Once we are done with the measurements we will help with product selection and the numerous options available. We never rush you through your appointment. We will take the time to educate you about many of the new innovative products that are on the market. Your new window treatments will last for decades so we want you to be comfortable with your choice.
Once you have selected a window treatment that you like, we will enter the sizes and product into our quoting system and present you with a quote on the spot. The quote has no extra hidden charges. The tax and installation is included in each separate line item so that you can pick and choose which windows you would like to order according to your budget.
If you choose to order your blinds, we will place your order ASAP and text you an estimated ship date from the manufacturer. We never hold onto orders and place them in batches. We want your blinds to arrive as soon as possible so we don’t delay.
We have been in business since 1992. Most of our customers are referrals or the result of our 5 star Google reviews. We do not take out expensive full page ads and inserts into the newspapers. Since we do not advertise, we have very low overhead. We also run our business on the Dave Ramsey debt free principle. Our showroom and vans are debt free. We also prepay our vendors when we place your order and pass that prepay discount on to you. Since we have very little overhead, we are the competitive choice in the North Idaho and Spokane market.

Manufacturing time is different for every manufacturer and product. Typically cellular shades are made in a week and then take a few days to ship. Shutters can take anywhere from 3 weeks to 8 weeks because they are handmade. As soon as your order is placed the manufacturer will give us an estimated ship date which we will pass on to you.
While cleaning window treatments isn’t rocket science, there are recommended techniques for each style.
