Window shades are the perfect addition to create an ambiance of luxury in your home or business with a minimal footprint. They allow you to maintain privacy, control light filtration, and add a new customized look and feel to the interior of your home or business. When it comes to window shades, you want to make sure you get the right fit for your specific needs and desires. Shades come in various different types, styles, and patterns.

Creating new spaces with custom window treatments is where our passion comes into light and where the magic really happens for you. We begin with an in-home measuring and consultation process. This preparation helps create the perfect ambiance for your space.
The right products will make your living space into your sanctuary.
We consider color combinations, home style, light filtration/blocking, energy/cost savings, and more during this process and in-home appointment.
After we define the custom shade design for you, our installers work with you to schedule a time for your installation and describe how they will complete the installation of your custom shades as seamlessly as possible.
During the installation itself, our installers at The Yardstick treat your house respectfully and are trained to complete the work as neatly and professionally as possible while also being prompt and making sure you’re completely satisfied with our service and final result.
