Before I went to home trends and started selecting which Hunter Douglas window coverings I wanted for the living room I knew next to nothing about design or color. Of course we all know what we like and what we don’t like but when it comes to designing a space or talking about your preferences you have to use more words than just good or bad. In fact, the process of designing a space with another person can be challenging but ultimately very rewarding because you learn to express yourself in new and dynamic ways. When I first went into the showroom I told the associate I wanted something that was light and not to wild looking. With those basic descriptions in mind we started working on my general idea Andere wing it down a bit. Since I had yet to pick a paint color we started with that even though that is not their specialty. However, my sales associate felt that in order for us to truly be happy with the entire room and possibly the entire house, we had to start big to small and that meant beginning with the paint scheme and working our way all the way down to the hardware used for doorknobs. All of a sudden I became very enthusiastic and interested in this process like I had never imagined before. I never thought that going shopping for window treatments would result in such an eye-opening experience but I think that is what separates home trends from other home decorating centers.
I was not surprised when I learned that home trends husband family owned and operated since 1959. With that sort of longevity I I’m not surprised at how awesome their customer service. I really felt like they wanted me to succeed in this project and they were excited to see the final results. In the end they help me select Hunter Douglas shades to go over the main windows in our living room and we went with a wood mini-blind in the family room. The two styles are different from one another yet they don’t clash because each goes so well with the paint and the furniture. For the window coverings we took advantage of the fact that Home Trends has in stock and ready made balances, curtains and shears. These are tailored in store to fit your windows exactly.
