Ready to battle intrusive light from the sun or an inconsiderate neighbor's supped-up space shuttle, the window experts at Discount Window Focus arrive at homes armed with an array of elegant blinds from brand names such as Hunter Douglas, Levolor, Graber, and Kirsch. During a free in-home consultation, the blind visionaries take measurements and pair home decor to the most ideal window furnishings, suggesting sleek shutters, wood blinds, solar shades, or honeycomb blinds. The techs then return in approximately three weeks to install the horizontal or vertical window coverings that keep sunny living spaces cool and finally allow homeowners to invite vampiric houseguests over for lunch.

Family patriarch Nordy Rockler opened the doors of his first store in 1954 to supply his fellow craftsmen with knowledge, friendly advice, and a large selection of tools for at-home woodworking projects. Now, the chain of retail outlets brims with more than 20,000 tools and specialized woodworking equipment. Next to a steely rainbow of hinges, casters, and screws, a supply of lumber and exotic hardwoods provides planks for building tree houses or just leaving around as a warning to uncooperative trees. The tenor buzz of power tools operated by newly knowledgeable guests drifts from educational sessions on operating equipment and woodworking.
