Zach and I built and moved into our new home a year ago, and we envisioned a big open floor plan, a few playrooms for the kids to enjoy, a big kitchen, and a mudroom area to store many outdoor items. One thing we did not realize was that our home did not come with any window coverings which was something we really needed.
Living in a cul-de-sac, it has its advantages and disadvantages. We love being close to our neighbors but maybe it’s a little to close since we have not installed any window coverings or blinds on any of our bottom level windows. This was something that we needed to get done to get our privacy back within our home.
I wanted to find a quality, well established and trusted company to help us plan our next move in window coverings. I came across Skyline Window Coverings which not only is local to the Chicagoland area but also offers high quality products such as Hunter Douglas. The company has a variety of options for your window treatments such as shades, shutters, coverings and even smart blinds! You’ll remember we installed smart blinds in our upstairs playroom and it’s been a great addition to our home however I knew I wanted something different for our bottom floor windows but wasn’t sure what to get. Bring in the expert!
I was able to have a free consultation with Julie who came over to my home to talk one on one about what was important to me, my family. We also discussed what we were looking for overall as far as privacy, color and function customized just for us. While this is an incredible way to get a first hand experience on what you can envision in your home, they also have a showroom to help narrow down your choices too.
Julie, was extremely friendly and knowledgeable when it comes to window coverings, came over with a variety of swatches, colors, textures and prints to pick the best one with our wall coverings, furniture and overall idea. I didn’t have a clue as to how many options coverings and blinds there were to choose from and she made it not overwhelming but exciting! Thanks to Julie who has over 20 years of experience, she was able to help me decide what would work best in each room and even explain their showroom that they have too.
A little unsure about bringing your kids with you to a showroom? Not to worry Moms! Everything is child friendly and there is plenty of space for your children to look at options for your kitchen, bedroom or family/dining room areas. Don’t feel that bringing you children with you will make it difficult but in fact, it may be fun to show them the process and get their ideas too!
I can’t wait to share what we choose, why we choose it and give you the final result of what it looks like! Stay tuned!
