We recently bought a new house and used Normandeau for all of our window coverings. Margo was amazing in helping me find designer shades for my obnoxiously large windows (which was no small task). She was also extremely helpful in explaining the pros and cons of different types of coverings and the variety of controls. Our installer was also great- everything was installed quickly and controls/app were clearly explained. He even set scenes for us! Would definitely recommend!

Normandeau was a great company to work with. Their product selection, customer service and installation services were excellent. I love my new blinds!.

I went into this little shop to check out some of their products because we have had Hunter Douglas products in the past. I was really impressed with the time they took with me to discuss the pros and cons of each line of window coverings. I spoke with a couple people but mainly dealt with Rob Farnham and he was really good. If you're looking for quality window coverings with a team that will be attentive to the details then this is your place.

The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable in their products, when it came to install service was efficient, timely and gave us a run down of how the blinds work. Would highly recommend them to anyone.
