Product Profile: Custom Shades and Blinds

Since 1984, Village Home Stores has worked hard to create a shopping experience that can help our customers outfit their homes with quality fixtures and craftsmanship from a trusted team of experts. We are a one-stop-shop and in 2015, we added custom window blinds and shades to our lineup. Now the same quality and expert help our customers have come to expect from Village Home Stores is available for homeowners and businesses looking to add functional and stylish window coverings.

The most asked about style of shades are still our Transitions. These unique shades are designed with contrasting solid and sheer horizontal panels that can be left overlapping for a striped look, or staggered for complete coverage. We now have hundreds and hundreds of color and style options in this category including wider panels and Ombre designs (shown above) that give your windows an updated and stylish new look while complimenting your space and furnishings. Of course cordless options remain to be one of the most requested for those with young children or customers just wanting a cleaner, sleeker look. We can also add motorized remote features to your window blinds and shades!

Think you have a tricky shape, space or need? There are so many great options we can add to your blinds and shades. Cutouts, multiple shades in one headrail, linings, trim, and more! Expertly measured, ordered, and installed in your home. Our customers love the versatility of our Transitions style shades but there is another versatile option you may want to consider. If the look of the overlapping Transitions shades are too Contemporary in style for you, consider a “Top Down Bottom Up” treatment. This is another great feature for those looking to customize their privacy and light options for a window. Press play below to see a example.

Want Blackout or Privacy Features?

Ask a window expert at Village Home Stores about your option to add blackout or privacy to your window covering. We can add lining to the shades themselves, or we have many options and can even add operable lining that can be raised or lowered behind the shade. This allows you the versatility to filter out some or all of the light and gain that privacy or the darkroom setting you may need from time to time.

This room at our local community center (see above) needed the option for a blackout shade when they host some fun classes that use blacklights and music. Now those classes can be offered any time of day!
