“We had a very positive experience with Galaxy Draperies. We had some very unusual windows/skylights that needed blinds. Crystal from Galaxy was very personable and professional with advice on the various different ways we could approach our “projects.”
The team who came to do the measurements and installation were very professional as well and we are very pleased with the end results. I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.”

“We are very pleased with the work and personnel from Galaxy Draperies. Matt understood what we wanted, and was very helpful. We had planned on only one room, and ended up measuring for three. After Matt left, we decided to do our living room as well.
The installer was prompt, and very professional. Our blinds look great!! Matt even made an appointment to come by and make sure that everything looked good. Highly recommended!!!!”
