Tradition Meets Modern
When this customer first came to us, she was still going through the final stages of her new house being completed. Therefore she was very keen to get her window furnishings underway as she was set to move in shortly and was aware that window furnishings can take several weeks from quotation to installation.
The house had come up beautifully so far, so she wanted this warm, rich look to be continued across the windows. After being advised that sheer curtains give a very classy look to the interiors of a house she was interested in having these draped over the windows, but adding blockout blinds to the reveals to allow her the ability to have the practicality of heat protection, privacy and insulation, whilst also providing the house with a beautiful, classy finish. This was an ideal option for the larger windows in the master bedroom and living room, but that left some smaller feature windows at the entry as well as in the open plan kitchen, living and dining area, which were ideal for plantation shutters.
Having solved the issue of what window furnishings to choose, the customer also asked if we supplied and installed security doors and fly-screens, which we do, meaning that she could have all of her window and door requirements provided by the same company, and having the consistency of dealing with the one salesman and installer throughout the entire process.
This job was completed over the course of three installations- initially the roller blinds, fly-screens and security doors were installed within 10 days, followed by the curtains approximately 2 weeks later, then finally the plantation shutters approximately 5 weeks later, a slight delay on this due to importing over the Chinese New Year period.
Overall the customer was thrilled with her choices. The sheer curtains were quite daunting to start with but having the ability to pull these open and closed meant that she could slowly get used to them being a part of the room. The customer chose exceptionally well on each product for each window and door, with colours being perfectly matched to feature walls, carpet, rugs and other furniture within the room.
We wish this customer well in her new home and hope that she gets fantastic use out of the products that Sheridan Window Furnishings have proudly provided her.
