Window shades are the eyelids of a house, in the same way that shingles are the hair and the front door is a gnashing mouth that hungers eternally for traveling salesmen. Rest your abode's glassy eyes with today's Groupon: for $79, you get $250 toward custom, natural window and door shades from Faust Natural Shades. Service areas include Austin, San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Seguin, Bulverde, and Boerne.
Faust Natural Shades shields interior spaces from the sun's intrusion with shades woven from natural materials in a variety of styles. Pricing varies widely based on dimensions, styles, and other options, starting at $125 for a 36"x24" Coba shade and ranging up to $4,976 with additional charges for certain added features. Consult the brochure for pricing charts, listings of available options, and pleasantly dim photos. The light-lessening process begins with an in-home appointment to take measurements, choose options, place the order, and apply a temporary coating of sunblock to floors, furniture, and pets. Each of the more than 60 patterns is custom-woven entirely from natural rattan, grass, bamboo, or leather. The photon-punters are hoisted by a number of different shade mechanisms, including Roman, roller, and motorized styles. Once completed, your custom shades are installed for free, saving you from the machinations of untrustworthy ladders and treacherous chairs.
