There is nothing like walking into a home in Toronto or the GTA with wood shutters on every window throughout the home. It has always been a classic look and is still considered very elegant when properly designed and installed. I just sold wood shutters to a lovely family in Toronto and they couldn’t be happier. And when my client’s are happy…I’m happy.
As a design consultant for Cadillac Shutters & Blinds my primary role is to advise clients when they purchase window blinds in Toronto and the GTA. Nothing gives me more satisfaction than the joy on my client’s faces when we do a walk throughout the home after our team has installed their window blinds. Window blinds make such a difference to a home. Some clients like to take pictures before hand and then afterwards to see the dramatic difference between the two side by side.
In the summer of 2011 Cadillac Shutters & Blinds also known as Cadillac Window Fashions inaugurated its Hunter Douglas Gallery. Our Hunter Douglas Showroom is located in midtown Toronto with easy access from anywhere in the GTA.
Window Shutters enhance a home. Window Shutters are also referred to as a window covering. There are many reasons for having Window Shutters in your home.
- Window Shutters control the amount of sunlight that comes into a room.
- Window Shutters offer privacy due to the solid panels.
- Window Shutters are energy efficient because they keep the cold out in the winter and the heat out in summer.
- While Window Shutters enhance a room they also look lovely from the outside of a house looking in.
“A few months ago I sold wood shutters to a client in Toronto. Months earlier, the client had done some major renovations to her home and was very excited to decorate. She couldn’t contain herself with excitement. As a matter of fact she was overjoyed at the thought of the decorating stage. It was such a lovely sight to see a woman in her glory. In phase one she replaced all her window coverings on the first floor with wood shutters. In the dining room she took my advice and went with a dramatic look by adding drapery. The look was gorgeous if I do say so myself. Phase two will be the 2nd floor and phase three is the basement with a walk out patio and some small windows. I’m sure she will be decorating her entire home with wood shutters. By the time this article is posted on our blog phase two will be complete and I can’t help but feel bitter sweet. I make it a point to visit most of my clients afterwards not only to make sure the client is happy with the results but also to see the joy they express to me with their new purchase. When I went to visit after phase one Mrs. Joyful (not her real name) was kind enough as to offer me tickets to the hockey game. I didn’t accept them because I didn’t want to get into any trouble, not that I would but just in case. I was touched because Mrs. Joyful wanted to reward me with something extra. I sell wood shutters in Toronto all the time, it’s our hottest item and to be treated like this was pretty special. Thanks Mrs. Joyful for making this such a joyful experience.” (Cadillac Shutters & Blinds employee)
“I don’t know if we coined the phrase “Cadillac Custom Shutters” or if our clients did, but I like it, it fits and it’s a keeper. We are the “Cadillac in Custom Shutters” because we do our very best in all we do. Whether its customer service or sales to designing the custom shutters to the installation we excel in all categories. Just the other day a client referred to Cadillac Shutters & Blinds as the Cadillac in Custom Shutters and all I could do was stand there, blush and say, I know. What else could I say; I wasn’t going to knock a competitor. We’ve been in business for over twenty five years so in a sense we’ve become experts in this industry. What I love most about my job is all the compliments I receive, knowing that I’m selling an excellent quality product and all the repeat business I get. Making Cadillac custom shutters is the easy part and over time our reputation has made selling our custom shutters as easy.” (Cadillac Shutters & Blinds employee)
“A few months ago I went out on a service call; the client was interested in purchasing California Shutters for one window. I was able to meet the customer’s needs and we got the sale. Everything was great. We set a date for our installer to install the California Shutters. He went to the client’s premises and did a great job and everyone was happy. The day after the installation I got a call from the client telling me how much she loves the California Shutters and now she wants to redo the whole house in California Shutters. You can imagine how delighted I was. My first thought was what a great installer we have and the next was how thrilled I was about the new job. It turns out the client loved the work and the installer. And just to complete this with a storybook (but true) ending, the client actually invited our installer and his wife for dinner.” (Cadillac Shutters & Blinds employee)
