Harris Blinds & Shutters

Free consultation and installation


Joan Duggan, a local homeowner, has a ritual every night as she shuts her house down for the night.  She begins in her living room where she turns the lights on and pulls down the shades that will now give her family privacy for the night.  In the morning, her ritual continues in reverse as she throws up those same honeycomb shades to let in the first of the morning rays of sunlight. For those windows that face the brightest sun, she keeps the shades drawn to protect the fabric curtains she wants to prevent from fading.

Those shades may help mark the time of day for Duggan, but they also allow her privacy, protection, decoration and even insulation. All this from a hometown, family-run business that has been serving our community since 1990.  Warwick residents will recognize this familiar business on Warwick Avenue, Harris Blinds & Shutters.
