This older Miton townhouse has not been updated for the past 20 years and the homeowner was looking for a change.  Not sure where to start and how to best spend her money for anticipated resale purposes, she called Milton Blinds for a complimentary in-home consultation.  During this meeting, we can bring our showroom to you and review blinds materials, roller shade fabrics, and shutter samples.

We bring to the customer’s attention things they may not have considered:

  • Curbside appeal
  • Placement of the windows on the wall
  • Home layout
  • If diversity is a priority for your window coverings

The front of the house was a big conversation for this customer and, it was not previously considered as an influential factor in this window covering decision. When a window on the 2nd floor is the same as the window below on the 1st floor, it is something to think about for roadside appeal purposes.  This home has two bay windows, one over the other in the master bedroom and living room.

With the windows situated low on the walls in this Milton house, a divider bar halfway helps with flexibility regarding functionality and having the bottom closed for privacy and top open for natural light.
