5 Star Testimonials!
Carmel is one of the most genuine and professional business owners that I have met! She recently designed the window coverings for my new home and I couldn’t be more happier with the results. Carmel gave a “treat each room as their own approach” and gave so much thought into my needs, budget and style. She really cares about her clients and it shows. She even offered to install my blinds herself incase I didn’t feel comfortable with a man in my home- I thought that was a very sweet gesture! I have already recommended her to my friends and family and will continue to do so!
I highly recommend Matalino Home, Carmel and Dale to anyone looking to install blinds in their home. We originally had Maxxmar motorized blinds installed through a major retailer and design company (not Matalino) and had a problem with the installation and setup. Although this wasn’t their problem to solve, Matalino took it upon themselves to make sure we got satisfaction and they certainly delivered. While at the Home Show I saw Carmel’s booth advertising Maxxmar blinds. I thought I would drop by and explain my dilemma. Carmel and Dale listened to my complaint, offered to come to my condo and properly programme a 15 channel remote to handle all the necessary functions. A week later Carmel and Dale came to my home and resolved my issues within an hour. After nine months of trying to get resolution from the original company I had a solution from Carmel and Dale after only a brief conversation at The Home Show.
Carmel and her team were fantastic to work with. She was professional, knowledgeable, and provided a quality product. She installed gorgeous dual-shades with a motor feature in our two-storey windows and we are so happy with the style and functionality of the product. Thank you Carmel for providing the best service, price and product!
I was unable to sleep for months not knowing that it was my shades that were bothering me. Carmel understood my needs and suggested cellular black out shades. They were amazing!!! She provided such great service! She listened to my concerns and addressed them immediately with informed options. Now I finally sleep through the night without the blinding morning sun in my eyes. I would highly recommend Carmel. She is so personable and friendly and she offers great prices too!
Dale and Carmel walked us through a wide range of window covering options during the consult, making what seemed like a daunting and overwhelming task seem simple and easy. Once we settled on dual and roller shades for 7 windows, they listened closely to our needs and even suggested colour schemes based on our current home finishes. The install done by Dale and John was quick. The dynamic duo ensured the place was clean, taking all packaging along with them. I would definitely recommend Matalino Home to anyone looking for window coverings. Keep up the great work!
Recently, I had the pleasure of working with Carmel and I was impressed with her professionalism and attentive service. She asked the right questions to make sure she understood my needs and showed me the relevant products. She is knowledgeable and I trusted her expertise. The products were delivered on time and the installation was done expertly and quickly by John who was also a true professional.
We had a great experience dealing with Carmel and her installer John at Matalino Home. They were professional, knowledgeable and prompt to address any of our questions and concerns. We were looking to replace the existing blinds in our new home with something cleaner, sleeker and more modern. Carmel was insightful, energetic and full of great recommendations. When we saw the finished product, my wife and I were awestruck. So happy!! You will not go wrong with Matalino Home. Peace of mind knowing you will have a beautiful finished product at a great price. Big thanks Carmel and John!
A wonderful super friendly person who knows exactly what you want and will certainly give you the best quality with the best price.
I have shopped around a bit before deciding on working with Carmel. I needed new shades for three separate areas and they all have different practical and technical requirements. She was very patient in answering all my questions and knowledgeable in helping me finding the right solutions for my windows. We actually ended up choosing different types of blinds for each area, 2 of which are motorized but from different manufacturers. So, I can say we have tried a good variety of the products Carmel works with, and they are all working great and looking amazing.
As a fellow Professional, I can confidently recommend Dale Murphy to help my friends and clients with all their window covering needs. He is friendly, approachable, reliable and can get you great prices on the products he sells.
