Our office is south facing and extremely hot in the afternoons. Vanessa arrived on time and carefully explained all the options. She was patient going through all the pros and cons of each type of blinds. The colour selection was okay. The cost of the blinds is really expensive and you can get it for a cheaper price elsewhere. However, since it was an office expense we went ahead with it. The duette easyrise keeps out the rays quite well. We are pleased.
