My husband and I recently built our home from scratch and we needed window coverings for the entire house. We had looked around, but were completely overwhelmed with options.
Rose helped us distill it down to a few options based on our style preference and then Rachel came to our home, showed us color options and helped us decide what would be ideal. We ordered that day and in a few weeks we were ready for installation. The installation team was easy to schedule and did a fantastic job installing our shades and showing up how to use PowerView.
