I highly recommend Shades on Wheels & Barbara to anyone who is thinking of custom blinds or shutters.
We finished our basement and
We finished our basement and needed window treatments for a few windows and an exterior door. We called Shades on Wheels from an ad in a local newspaper. Suzi Garrity came to our house.
Suzi provided expert design ideas and advice and was very pleasant to work with.
The delivery of our window treatments was faster than expected and they look great. We are very pleased with the products and the design experience. Suzi was great to work with and kept us updated all along the process.

It was so easy and comfortable working with Suzi. My sister and I had just moved in to our newly constructed home and needed a houseful of window treatments.

Her efficiency, attention to detail, and thoroughness made the process enjoyable!

I am so happy with
I am so happy with my Hunter Douglass Silhouettes. Shades on Wheel knew just what I needed. The selection was easy, the wait from order to delivery reasonable and the installation completed professionally.
I worked with Barbara and
I worked with Barbara and her installation crew on the purchase and install of solar shades for my 3-season room. The entire process was smooth from start to finish. Barbara is a true professional. She brought all types of samples, and her knowledge of the products and her design sense really helped me choose just the right shades. The installation went very well with one small hiccup which Barbara had the installers fix immediately. In addition, the cost was commensurate with the big box stores and about 40% lower than two other estimates I received from other shade companies. Without question, I highly recommend Barbara and Shades on Wheels.
I had Barbara come and

After a disastrous time with
After a disastrous time with another shade company Shades on Wheels saved the day. an initial appointment was made with ease, and took no time at all! I was told the shutters I ordered would be installed within three weeks! I was skeptical but that’s what happened! Not the 3 months I was told from the other company. The installer was pleasant and did a great job! My shutters look great! They are exactly what I wanted and enhanced every room! Thank you Shades on Wheels!!

Honestly 5 STARS from this customer!

I continue to get compliments on the shades and shears purchased from and installed by the wonderful folks at Shades on Wheels — and I couldn’t be happier! To say the honeycomb shades help regulate the temperature of the entire first floor of my home would be an understatement.

I contacted Shades on Wheels to help me find shades for a new home and Andy made the whole process so smooth and stress-free. He brought in lots of samples and gave me his honest opinion on which options he thought would work in my home, which made my job so easy. I was amazed by how quickly and perfectly Andy installed all of the shades, and he even came back afterwards to demonstrate something when I had a question. I love my new shades and have gotten so many compliments on them! I would definitely use Shades on Wheels again for any future projects and would recommend them to anyone.
Suzi helped us pick out
Suzi helped us pick out shades for the glass doors in our kitchen and living room. She quickly assessed the different styles of the doors and advised us on our best options for function, uniformity and price. We worked with Suzi a few months prior to outfit all of the windows in our new home and she was able to match our new shades to the existing ones flawlessly. She shared a quote and we confirmed the order all before our 30 minute consultation concluded! We’d highly recommend working with Suzi.

Suzi was wonderful to work
Suzi was wonderful to work with and delivered amazing customer service. She helped us match functional needs and design ideas with the appropriate products, and the results were terrific. For one oval-shaped window, she thought outside the box to come up with a customized design that was aesthetically better and less expensive than the ready-made alternatives. And Suzi and her team were available post-installation to resolve product issues with the manufacturer. Her attention to detail and customer service are second to none.

Suzi did a great job in working with us to make sure that the treatments were the aesthetic I was looking for but also functional. The quality of Hunter Douglas is unmatched, and they have a lifetime warranty!

Thank you.
I heard about shades on
I heard about shades on wheels from a flyer we received in our mail after we moved into our new house. I liked the idea that they will come to us in our home instead of us going to a store. I decided to call Barbara to set up an appointment and left a message. She happened to be away in vacations and still took the time to call me back the same day to set up a date to come to our home. I call that great customer service!! Then she came to our house and was so nice to work with. She took all the time we needed, brought many sample from her car so we were able to visualize at home with a much better perspective! Everything was clear and easy, she took the measurements of all our windows, and couple of weeks later, as promised, two gentlemen came and installed all the shades in less than an hour, leaving no mess behind.
I have to say, that was a great experience and we love our new windows treatment!!
I still have my office space to renovate and I can’t wait to call Barbara back and work with her again!!
I would highly recommend Barbara
I would highly recommend Barbara Thomas and Shades On Wheels. After doing an addition on our home 10 years ago, I had a lot of windows I needed to cover! Barbara came out to our home and patiently went over the samples with me. I was able to see the quality and colors of the products I was choosing right in the rooms I would be using them in. Now this past summer we moved to a new home and I called Barbara again and selected beautiful plantation shutters for my windows. The installers have worked with Barbara for 20 years and were professional and efficient getting the job completed. I LOVE my new window treatments and will refer my friends to this business.

I am so pleased with
I am so pleased with my woven shades from Suzi Garrity/Shades on Wheels! Prior to her visit I had the idea of a dark color in mind. After reviewing the choices with her, she gently suggested I consider a lighter color. I couldn’t be happier with the results. I’m so glad I went with the lighter color. In addition, she was able to accommodate my request for an unconventional outside-mount application and my windows look larger because of it. The installation went very smoothly as well. It was so convenient to make an appointment and see how the colors looked in my home with my decor and lighting. I would highly recommend Suzi and Shades on Wheels.

Will I have privacy with light filtering window treatments?
All light filtering window treatments provide privacy during the daytime and at night. A person looking into your home will be able to see a silhouette of a body. However, they will not be able to see what you are wearing. During the day, light-filtering shades softly filter light into the room while providing UV protection. Light-filtering blinds and roman shades with UV protection save your floors, furniture, rugs, artwork, and more from prematurely fading.
What is the difference between stationary drapery panels, draperies and curtains?
Stationary drapery panels are meant to frame a window like bookends. Drapery panels are often referred to as side panels. The fabrics remain in an open position at each side of the window. There are many styles of drapery panels. Draperies can be pleated on rings, grommet, rod pocket, or tab style. Drapery or curtains are functional and are meant to open and close. Custom drapery or curtains cover the entire window if closed; they are typically on a traverse rod with pleats or ripplefold style. Draperies can also be on a rod with rings and pleated fabric. Grommet, rod pocket and tab style do not function well for functioning drapery because they cannot pass over a bracket easily.
Do you have a brick-and-mortar blinds store or shades shop?
No. Shades On Wheels is a “Shop-At-Home” business since 1982. Shades On Wheels brings the blinds, shades, shutters, drapery and curtain fabrics store to you. Each Shades On Wheels blinds dealer has a wide variety of hand samples and Hunter Douglas fabric books to assist during the window covering selection phase. It is best to see the actual window treatment styles in your space. Everyone has a different room where the light and colors change throughout the day. It is extremely helpful to show you exactly how the window shades, curtain or drapery fabrics will look and mount properly on the window.
