Testimonials & Reviews

We are ABSOLUTELY thrilled with our experience with Valancing Act!  From our first contact with them (Joni & Brian and their wonderful staff), we've been impressed with the communication, design recommendations, extensive selection, superior craftsmanship & expert installation.
They have transformed our 1903 Victorian home back to its former glory with custom roller shades, lacy sheers & spectacular drapes,swags, & cascades. Thank you very much, Valancing Act, for the "showcase" of window treatments you created for us! more

Happy Holidays to you both. We are so happy with everything. You are both so great to deal with, always on time, deliver on your promises & super nice. Don't be strangers ... knock on our door if you are in the area. We are happy to refer you to anyone.

Joni & Bryan at Valancing Act are absolutely fabulous to work with! Experienced input, precision craftsmanship, thorough install, great communication, reasonable pricing, and downright good people, you can't ask for anything more. They completed a very large job on my hotel project in Santa Barbara county with excellence and I highly recommend them to anyone reading this.

I had a wonderful experience with the Joni and Bryan from the Valancing Act!!! I had met with a few different companies to have my draperies done as well as the rods and hardware before choosing the Valancing Act. I have expensive taste and am on a tight budget so I was very pleased when I received the quote for the hardware and draperies from the Valancing Act. They are very competitive and do quality work!! Joni and Bryan went out of their way to help me get my job done at a price I could afford and a result I love!!! They came and measured as well as troubleshot some odd windows I have with some design ideas and then came back out for installation. I did three bedrooms with custom drapery and rods first and then went back to them for some decorative curtains recently in our pub. I can't wait to use them for my living room!! They are awesome and I highly recommend them!!!

A+ in every way. We had Valancing Act create window coverings for practically every room in our home. We got plantation shutters for our kids' rooms, roman shades in the kitchen and dining room, and custom draperies for the family room, office, and master bedroom. Every single purchase has been of the absolute highest quality and delivered right on time. I have received tons of compliments in particular on my family room drapes, which Joni helped me design in a way I never would have considered without her input. Joni and Bryan are the ultimate professionals, and nice people to boot. They respect your time (ie, they arrive when they say they will... which seems to be rare with contractors these days), provide great advice in terms of what will be most workable in a given room, and they deliver a superb finished product. On the occasions when we had any issue, they addressed it immediately and to our total satisfaction (eg, shutters that didn't close effectively in one room - due to a manufacturing problem - were replaced after Bryan contacted the manufacturer). We shopped around and found Valancing Act to be more reasonable in price compared with other quotes in the area. I recommend them 100%. We are very, very happy with all of their work.

Valancing Act is a very professional local based company! The owners have a very wide selection of materials and creative solutions and will spend the time and energy to make the final work product beyond one's expectations. Our new home is in downtown San Luis Obispo, and we desired modern shade window pulls and custom valances of metal and fabrics. Valancing Act performed the work quickly, professionally, and with high grade materials, at prices that were very competitive compared to traditional big box competitors. I would not hesitate to talk and work with the owners. They simply go the extra mile to make sure the customer comes first.

I always found Joni and Bryan to be great for their experienced opinions and quality product. These folks did an excellent job of meeting our needs in every way. I highly recommend them to anyone needing window coverings of any kind, from simple shades to more complex draperies. They really deliver.
