researching for building a new home

What should you know?

Building a new home is exciting. But, it can be easy to get caught up in the process of building–forgetting that moving day is around the corner. The result of bare windows can mean restless sleep, nosy neighbors, frustrating glare and direct heat. Because it can take from 4-6 weeks, once window coverings are ordered, to have them installed, they’ll be an important component to think about as you build, or remodel your home.

When should you start?

If you’re choosing paint colors, you can also be deciding which fabrics you love! Our showrooms are a great place to find inspiration. You can browse and meet with a window treatment specialist to help you talk things over. You’ll see exciting features and hear about the benefits so you can enjoy the ideal combination of style and function in your new home!

Interested in smart blinds?

If you’re building a new home, chances are, you’re interested in finding out how home automation can improve your life. Did you know that if you’re building or remodeling, you’re in a really great spot to hard-wire your automated shades, blinds and shutters. We can get involved from the beginning, so your general contractor or electrician can include what is needed. Your home will be set up to save you money in the long run–not having to rely on batteries or experience any inconvenience that may come with changing batteries.

Which smart home system?

You may have a brand you prefer–like Google Home, Alexa, Control 4 or another smart home system. The good news is–we’re compatible! Hunter Douglas PowerView motorization integrates into most smart home systems, making it easy to setup and operate.

selection Selection

How are selections made?

Similar to building a new home, or remodeling your current ones, you can often make selections based on the way you’ll live in your home. As an example, many people already know they want room darkening shades in the bedrooms, and child safe blinds throughout the home. We have three window treatment showrooms, full of inspiration, to help you envision the way you want your home to turn out. Sitting down together, your window covering specialist will walk through the process, room-by-room, making sure that the balance of style and function is ideal. To customize the process, you can always stagger the ordering–ensuring that you have your priorities delivered first, while other rooms can wait.

When do measurements need to be taken?

We can take measurements earlier-on than you might think. Once the mudding and sheetrock is in place, we can communicate to make sure measurements are taken as soon as possible. We’ll get the information we need to place your order.

This small business is a great example of outstanding customer service. Sherry made my blind repair experience convenient and easy. She followed up immediately to let me know the details behind my issue and how it would be resolved. Thank you!

From the day we first went in to “just look” until the day our blinds were installed, it was an excellent experience. No pressure, willing to answer lots of questions and fair pricing for outstanding quality. The install went smoothly and Tim took great care of us! I highly recommend OSD!

We had someone come out with samples and helped us pick out the type of blinds and color; within 4 weeks the blinds were delivered and installed. They are beautiful! I would definitely use One Stop again.
