From keeping up with current trends to creating beautiful and unique products in-house, Sheila’s Window Toppers & More has mastered meeting customers’ needs. “We don’t do a lot of advertising,” says store manager, Souk Oun. “It’s mostly word-of-mouth and referrals and repeat clients. That’s how Sheila built her reputation.”
Founded in 1991 by its namesake and her husband Loren, the family-run company has long impressed customers with quality, reliability and creativity to cater to those looking for products for unique projects. “Anything difficult with window coverings, we tend to get,” Oun says. “Hard arches, specialty-shaped windows — and we try to find solutions.”
Sheila’s Window Toppers’ customers are often looking for blinds and shutters and interested in the fast-growing trend of custom-made draperies. Far from the off-the-shelf window coverings, Sheila’s Window Toppers does custom work creating curtains, draperies and hand-sewn cushions as well as custom upholstery to breathe new life into weathered family heirlooms.
While it definitely caters to a Hunter Douglas fan base, the business also offers a number of different brands and strives to be competitive. “Whatever the budget is, we will find a solution,” Oun says.
The company, which has its showroom at 10 – 250 Crowfoot Cres. N.W., won the 2018 Home Services Readers’ Choice Award in the Drapery Installer category. “That’s perfect,” Oun says. “I guess it means we are doing a good job on educating people.
