Come in and see a demonstration of the new PowerView Motoriztion system from Hunter Douglas. You can control your shades using the PowerView App on your phone or tablet when not using the remote.
The PowerView Hub kit connects to your modem and then you set up your personal network by following the on-screen instructions.
We have made a move into the space next to us. We are now in the old Kitsap Bank building. The old parquet flooring has been scraped away, the tellers counters are gone, the big vault is history.
Come in and visit us. We hope you will like our new look.

Black Out Shades or Room Darkening Shades are easily available and offer you great protection against glare into your rooms.
Let’s face it…we love bright sunny days but they often interfere with the large screen TV’s of today. The glare off of window panes reflect right onto the TV screens making them difficult to watch. Not a pleasant situation on the day of the big game.
There are various solutions.
1. Honeycomb shades can be made with a black-out liner that will block out everything.
2. Roller shades have made a huge comeback and come in a variety of fabrics, many of which are blackout. There is also a rail system that is black-out pictured at the top of the post.
3. Woven Woods, Roman Shades, all have the option of liners that darken completely.
4. Draperies come in a variety of fabrics and weights and can be lined with a black-out fabric. We recommend traverse rods with the heavier draperies for ease of drawing back and forth.
5. Duolite shades offer two shades on one system. Dual roller shades also allow two shades to be installed in one headrail.
Remember you do not always need to go completely black-out and room darkening may be enough. Layering treatments is an option. Use mini-blinds for privacy installed inside the window frame then add a drapery over for extra light control.
Come in to check out the options available.

It is difficult to install two shades inside the window frame because there usually is not enough room for both headrails.
Here are two new products were are excited to add for next year. The samples are in and stock is available.
First, vinyl luxury tile is really dominating the market right now. Please come in and look at these two styles. You can get these vinyl planks in glue down or click.
The click style is easy to use and they do not chip like the bargain brands at the box stores. Transition t-moldings are available in coordinating colors.
Glue down 4.29 sf
Click 4.99 sf
Looking for something special? Consider this rough sawn wood engineered plank. We have three new floors that are oiled. These floors are artistry and the design is at the forefront of the industry. After the floors are installed apply a light coat of oil. The oil integrates with the wood and offers minimal maintenance.
It is always interesting to look back over the current year and to note the changes in consumer spending.
These figures are taken directly out of our sales reports for 2013 and 2014. They are generated by using Quicken.
Honeycomb has always been the top selling style of window covering in today’s market. Last year in 2013 honeycomb shades totaled 32.8% of our blind sales. This year honeycomb sales were 25.9% of our blind business.
Since we had an increase this year, that means that other areas have improved. A significant increase is noted in our roller shade business. That means you as a consumer have been purchasing various types of roller shades. They come in the mesh view fabrics and in interesting privacy fabrics. The new lift systems have removed the stigma of the crazy flapping roller shade letting loose in the middle of night.
The other area of increase is the Silhouette shade. This shade is the premier crème-dela-crème product of the industry. You get tiltability, sheer fabrics, and privacy which marks the versatility of this blind. Silhouette is about 70% more than a Duette with upgraded lift systems or twice as much as the basic honeycomb.
Sales in custom drapery, valance and cornice category have more than doubled.
This means that customers are now beginning to order higher-end products for their home.
We are looking forward to 2015.
