How easy is to install CWS shades?

People ask us ALL the time: How easy is it to install our shades?

Well, we CAN tell you that it couldn’t be much simpler.

We could EXPLAIN that with a couple of simple tools and our first-rate instructions, you’ll have your shades up and operating perfectly in no time.

But wouldn’t you rather SEE how easy it is for somebody JUST LIKE YOU to install brand new CWS shades from beginning to end?

We thought so, too! Without further ado, let’s let Greg in SUNNY Florida take it from here…

Greg and his wife just moved into a home that came with 15+ year old mini-blinds. Not energy efficient! Their master bedroom faces East…and they both said it’s like an oven at 9 am!  YUCK!

With our guidance, they ordered 5 Double-Cell BlackOut, Smoothy Shades and documented the whole installation process for us.

How AWESOME are they!

First they took down their blinds, and opened their shipment, so everyone can see how well they are packed.

“You guys even packed them according to size. I didn’t expect that, but much appreciated.”

Being in the industry, we know shade lingo like the back of our hand. That being said, it might not be so clear to the ‘average’ Gregs out there. But he reassured us “Your instructions are clear. Made sense to me.”

His wife even shot short videos for us!
(Jo told us that the AC runs all-year round, actually. “It’s Florida, it’s always HOT!” )


Greg chose to mount his blackout shades on the outside of his window sills.


WOO HOO! Greg likes our screws.

They are nice and long, and super durable, if we do say so ourselves.

GOOD tip, Greg!

You don’t want to tighten the screws TOO much.

Second bracket is in place, now to install the shade!

It’s a*SNAP*


“Hey it even looks like a ‘P’. I bet that’s how it got it’s name.


If you’re wondering, yes, Greg is in sales. I think we should hire him!



Tah DAH!

Great job, Greg!


Another awesome tip, Greg!

Our blackout fabric, in particular does have a “GREAT” fabric memory. So, as he shows in this clip, just give it a little tug.


His eyebrows say it all, don’t they?! HAHA!

He saved the largest shade for last, in their bay window.


We cannot thank our awesome customers enough for taking the time to show others how our shades are installed. You ROCK!!!

“We can already FEEL the difference with the shades lowered. We’re not baking!”, said Jo.

So… are you ready to be the next Greg (well, except for the whole being filmed part)? Great! All you need to do to get started is hop on over to CWS and order yourself some new shades!
