Fashion For Your Windows at Braid Flooring & Window

posted by My Saskatoon    |   December 15, 2015 15:22

Regardless of when you read this blog, it's safe to assume you're close to a home or office window in Saskatoon. Take a moment to look at the window and the blinds that currently exist in that space. 

Do the blinds control the light? Do they add style and fashion to the room?

Chances are you've never truly considered window coverings as part of your home's fashion. But they actually play a key role beyond the control of light and privacy in a room. The Hunter Douglas Alustra blind collection provides the best of functionality and style for your home.

Watch this short video for several before and after pictures showcasing the fashion these high quality blinds create.


To touch and feel this collection visit our showroom and experience the only Hunter Douglas Gallery in Saskatoon.

All of this and you still receive the top Hunter Douglas warranty in Saskatoon only available at Braid Flooring & Window Fashions.

Households with young children and pets can be a busy place. It's hard for parents to keep an eye on everyone while trying to cook an evening meal for the family. And let's face it, both kids and pets love to explore!

Because of that curiosity we've seen a movement towards blinds that are safe. Cords hanging low are a thing of the past when you choose Hunter Douglas blinds with PowerView motorization.

Now you can have the functionality of high quality blinds, the style and colours you want, and the comfort of knowing your family is safe from dangling cords.

Tips for Renovating on a Budget

posted by Trusted    |   January 15, 2014 09:56

Braid Flooring & Window Fashions takes pride in the floors and window coverings they install. Braid is a locally-owned Saskatoon company, serving both the residential and commercial markets.

Braid recently expanded to include window fashions, paints and wall coverings, as well as an area rug gallery. Everything you need, including the experience to bring fashion to your home, can be found at Braid's Saskatoon showroom. Braid's Window Fashions Specialists can help provide solutions for your everyday, practical needs, while fulfilling your desire for stylish window coverings that will suit your home. 

Braid Flooring & Window Fashions, your Trusted Saskatoon Window Covering Expert, shares some tips for renovations on a budget!

Now that the holiday season is done it's time to start thinking about your flooring, blinds, and walls for 2014. But the New Year always seems to arrive with something card bills!

Those renovations are still important, but all of a sudden the budget is a little tighter. Not to worry! While Braid is known for quality service, we also spend considerable time finding quality products for all budgets.

Here are a few ideas for updating a room on a budget.

Hardwood flooring is the King of flooring these days but it also comes with a cost. Instead of buying real hardwood, consider Luxury Vinyl Planks. The visuals are incredible but will also provide serious cost savings. 

Natural stone tile is a great way to create a spa feeling in a bathroom but the costs of material, labour, and maintenance add up. Instead look at porcelain tile that mimics natural stone. You will be hard pressed to tell the difference... other than the cost, that is. 

Are your walls just looking bland? Try a simple can of Farrow & Ball paint and some curtains from Kravet. It's a quick and inexpensive way to update a room. 

Regardless of whether you're building your dream home or looking to update your existing home, we have the right products for your budget. Visit our Saskatoon showroom to learn more about how we can help you.
