Episode #20: Custom Made Simple, Window Treatments with Adam Skalman, The Shade Store

I’m so excited for this episode because is something that the audience of the podcast has been asking to hear more about. Window treatments are currently a hot topic in home design, and I’ve got the national window treatment company, The Shade Store (which you most likely have heard of!) here today to discuss them.

Adam Skalman is the VP of Sales Development and Training for The Shade Store, a company that provides designers and consumers with a single resource for custom window treatments. Adam is a 15-year veteran of the industry, including over a decade of time with The Shade Store. The company has a motto that says “Custom Made Simple” – and they really live up to this!

I know window treatments can seem difficult, and they can also be a significant investment, which is why I wanted to discuss them with Adam today. He gives so much great advice in this episode, including why you’ll want to consider function first before anything when it comes to window treatments. If you’re located in the United States you most likely have a location of The Shade Store near you, so drop in to see them to discuss your window treatment needs. If you do, let both Adam and I know how you make out!
