The renovated house I bought needed window treatments throughout. After reading reviews and getting a personal reference, I contacted Sapphire. They met my real estate agent at the house (I was not living locally at the time) to measure the windows and get a sense of the vibe. I said I was looking for something simple/minimal that would not only look good but also be easy to clean and maintain.They sent me photos of their recommendations and we moved forward with their top choice. After I had closed and moved into the house, Sapphire arrived to install the blinds. Everyone has different needs and tastes, but considering mine, these blinds came out better than perfect. The style and quality is beyond what I was hoping for and I can't thank Sapphire enough. Great product, great people and the satisfaction of working with a local family business. Hey Google, six stars, please!

The onsite free estimate and consultation with lots of examples and samples made choosing the right solution very smooth. We had a tight time constraint with visitors coming and Sapphire got the material ordered efficiently. The installation was done in less than 45 minutes. Beautiful job. We are very pleased. Thank you Sapphire team, John, Ron and Judy.
