Letters To Clients

August, 2019

Dear Valued Client,

I hope you are enjoying the colorful summer season. On that note -

Drum roll, please…Hunter Douglas added 2 new lower priced lines of honeycomb cellular shades to its repertoire. For the first time, these lower priced lines offer the same exact features as the top of the line shades, including factory installed built-in handles, the same beautiful headrail, the ultraguide wand, the same warranty, and much more! What accounts for the difference between these lines and the more expensive lines? The answer lies in the variety of colors and fabric textures.  

 

The Kinship and Sunterra lines provide you with beautiful, energy efficient, cordless shades (top down-bottom up and/or room darkening, if you want), but at a less expensive price. There are 42 new colors in the full line of honeycomb shades, so you are bound to find a color you like within the Applause or Duette palette. For all Hunter Douglas products, please look at my HD website: www.VerticalsandHorizontals.net.

 

However, if you do not find your exact color within the HD lines, Comfortex has 800 colors which match your paint or designer furniture.  Also, if you are looking for cost-effective, cordless, roller shades, I recommend the Comfortex ColorLux system which matches different types of shades with hundreds of options for matching window treatments (shadesand drapery). Check out www.colorluxwindowsolutions.com for design ideas.  With so many choices of colors, it is easy to coordinate window treatments to match your room’s décor.  

As a Hunter Douglas Master Installer (Hunter Douglas’ highest accreditation) and Showcase Priority dealer, I pass on to you, my valued customers, more than 30 years of experience and expert knowledge of available window fashion designs. One window at a time…I personally measure, install, service, and repair your blinds (mini, vertical, horizontal, wood), sheer shades, honeycomb shades, skylight shades, shutters, drapery, and top treatments.  

                                                                              

Thank you for your past business.  I service a large area including Pennsylvania, the Pocono Mountains, Delaware, New Jersey, the Jersey Shore, and New York.  I appreciate your referrals to friends and family. Thank you!

 

Sincerely,

Sam Richter

Dear Valued Client,

 

I wish you and your family continued good health, joy, and peace.

Is light streaming into your bedroom waking you in the morning or keeping you up at night?  Getting blackout shades for your windows will keep your bedroom dark and help you get to sleep faster and maintain peaceful sleep.  Over 90% of the shades I sell (and the industry standard) are cordless shades, which are child-safe and pet-safe.  Room darkening shades are also great for your children’s and grandchildren’s rooms, so that they – and you – do not wake up when the sun rises.  With so many choices of colors of blackout shades, it is easy to color coordinate the shades to match your room’s décor.  

 

Are you looking for an affordable, energy efficient, shade-in-one combining the look of a roman shade with the efficiency of a honeycomb (cellular) shade? If so, look no further than the Hunter Douglas Sonnette. Its notable qualities include: 100% cordless (so there are never cords to wear out, restring, or replace), it does not hit the handle or lock on your window, and it allows in more light and functionality than a traditional roman shade.  For all Hunter Douglas products, please look at my HD website, www.VerticalsandHorizontals.net.

 

If you are looking for cost-effective, cordless, roller shades, I recommend the Comfortex ColorLux system which matches different types of shades with hundreds of options for color-matching shades and drapery.  Check out www.colorluxwindowsolutions.com for design ideas.

Dear Valued Client,

 

There is a new shade in town.  Actually, it is a twist on the ever-steady roller shade. The Hunter Douglas Sonnette is an affordable, energy efficient, shade-in-one combining the best of a roller shade and a honeycomb (cellular) shade.  Its notable qualities: 100% cordless (so there are never cords to wear out, restring, or replace), it does not hit the handle or lock on your window, and allows in more light and functionality than a traditional roller shade.

 

If you are looking for cost-effective, cordless, roller shades, I also recommend: 

  1. 1.    the Comfortex ColorLux system which matches different types of shades with many options for color-matching drapery.  Check out http://www.colorluxwindowsolutions.com for thousands of design ideas.  Please ask me to see samples of available fabric styles; and 

  2. 2.    Worldwide Window Fashions Solas and Valencia collections, which feature a variety of decorative motifs and patterns.  

What’s new and ‘in’ with wood blinds?  Decorative tapes!  Yes, they are back and cordless in a variety of colors.  What is old is new…Tapes contribute to a traditional, elegant décor.  Blinds also lower heating [and cooling] costs by reducing window heat loss. AARP Bulletin, March, 2018, page 16.

 

As a Hunter Douglas Master Installer (the highest accreditation bestowed by Hunter Douglas) and Showcase Priority dealer, I pass on to you, my valued customers, more than 30 years of experience in the window treatment business and expert knowledge of available window fashions.

Dear Valued Client,

 

With the new year, I wish you and your family good health, joy, and peace.

 

The most frequent question clients ask me is: drum roll, please…Do you have shades without cords?  Of course, I do.  In fact, as the industry moves toward a more technologically advanced world in which child and pet safety are at the forefront of consumers’ minds, it is getting harder to find window treatments with cords.  I carry a full selection of excellent quality shades – both light filtering and room darkening - in many colors at affordable prices.  Over 90% of the shades I sell (and the industry standard) are cordless shades.  Blinds are moving in this direction, too.  If you have a high or hard to reach window, remote control shades are a great solution. 

 

I also receive many calls about skylights, and in particular, too much heat coming through the windows during the spring and summer or heat escaping during the winter. My customers love the beauty and light from their skylights; however, they may not anticipate the glare, fading furniture and wood floors, and high temperatures from the bare high windows.  Hunter Douglas and Comfortex (an HD subsidiary) both make excellent quality shades for skylights.

Dear Valued Client,

 

I received a lot of interest from my last letter to you, my valued clients, about room darkening shades, so I am dedicating most of this letter to the value and  importance of a good night’s sleep.

 

Is light streaming into your bedroom waking you in the morning or keeping you up at night?  If so, this is not good for your health or your ability to awake refreshed.  Streaming light prevents you from falling asleep and remaining asleep during the night.  Don’t take it from me.  Check out these publications and books: AARP, April/May 2017, page 40; Parade Magazine, March 19, 2017, pages 8-9; Sleep Smarter by Shawn Stevenson (2016), page 77; The Wisdom of Menopause by Christiane Northrup, M.D., pages 300-01.

 

Getting blackout shades for your windows, covering power lights on electronics, turning off your smartphones, and dimming your clock’s display will keep your bedroom dark and help you get to sleep faster and maintain peaceful sleep.  Over 90% of the shades I sell (and the industry standard) are cordless shades, which are child-safe and pet-safe.  Blackout shades are also great for your children’s and grandchildren’s rooms, so that they – and you – do not wake up when the sun rises.  With so many choices of colors of blackout shades, it is easy to color coordinate the shades to match your room’s décor.  

 

One short note on a new product which is hot, modern, and trending! Designer banded shades feature alternating sheer and solid bands which combine into a single shade. Think zebra – and you get the idea! You will love it when you see it.

 

One window at a time…I personally measure, install, service, and repair your blinds (mini, vertical, horizontal, wood), honeycomb shades, skylight shades, shutters, drapery, bedspreads and pillows, and top treatments.  

     

Thank you for your past business.  I service a large area including Pennsylvania, the Pocono Mountains, Delaware, New Jersey, the Jersey Shore, and New York.  I appreciate your referrals to friends and family and recommendations on www.Houzz.com and www.AngiesList.com.  Thank you!

Dear Valued Client,

Light filtering or room darkening? That is the question (paraphrasing William Shakespeare.) Is light streaming into your bedroom waking you in the morning or keeping you up at night?  Worldwide Window Fashions has a full selection of excellent quality shades of both types in many colors at affordable prices.  Over 90% of the shades I sell (and the industry standard) are cordless shades, which are child-safe and pet-safe.  Blinds are moving in this direction, too.

 

I get a lot of calls about skylights, namely: too much heat coming in during the spring and summer or heat escaping during the winter. My customers love the beauty and light from skylights and often do not anticipate the glare, fading furniture and wood floors, and high temperature from the bare high windows.  What may be done?  A light-filtering, double-efficient, energy saving skylight shade from Comfortex Window Fashions is just the ticket!

 

I am pleased to announce that I have successfully qualified as a Hunter Douglas Master Installer (the highest accreditation bestowed by Hunter Douglas.)  My more than 30 years in the window treatment business and expert knowledge of available window fashions assure you of receiving the best products and features for your specific window covering needs.

Dear Valued Client,

 

Wow! There are so many new window treatments available to you – and the trend is clear: fewer or no cords (for child and pet safety, as well as ease of operation) and more vibrant colors and styles from which to choose.

 

The biggest news from Hunter Douglas is the Silhouette Duolite® - which gives you the beauty of a Silhouette shade (a combination shade and blind) with a room darkening function when you want it.  You have to see it to believe it.  Please ask me to demonstrate it for you.

 

Talk about color – have you seen the Comfortex color wheel palette? With more than 800 shade colors available to you, you can expertly match your shades to anything and everything in your home or office. 

 

Lafayette Interior Fashions, our go-to drapery supplier, makes the Allure shade, which is a shade within a shade, providing an illusion of movement and light which is spectacular.  In beautiful colors and textures, the Allure shade provides an elegant and distinctive window treatment for any and every room.

 

Drumroll, please…I now carry a full line of Norman Shutters, a cost-effective, great quality, custom-made shutter.  There is a large variety of colors and wood-tones.  If you were putting off a shutter purchase due to the price, now is a good time to re-visit whether shutters are a good option for your windows.

 

For a free designer book, please visit my official Hunter Douglas website, www.VerticalsandHorizontals.net, to request one.  One window at a time…I personally measure, install, service, and repair your blinds (mini, vertical, horizontal, wood), honeycomb shades, skylight shades, shutters, drapery, bedspreads and pillows, and top treatments.
