Caitlin and Kim are the ultimate dream team! We have used them for shades in both our kitchen and bedroom, and both times they went above and beyond to create the perfect drapes for our home. The installation was quick and easy, and we are so pleased with the end result! We will most definitely work with them again in the future. Thank you so much!!!!Read More

I highly recommend Kim and her team! I have worked with Kim on multiple projects over the last 9 years. I am an interior designer and she has played a crucial role in several of my client's projects. Kim has a great eye for design, has so much knowledge on all things window treatment related, is very responsive and always follows through. She is full of energy and a delight to work with. Don't hesitate to hire Kim and her team!Read More

Kim and her team at Urban Environments were a pleasure to work with and our bedrooms now look AWESOME as a result of her recommendations for window coverings. They helped select fabrics and installed in 4 different rooms-- and we are so pleased with the end result. The install was easy and Urban Environments is a great find!Read More

Kim and Urban Environments were absolutely great! This is the second time I've used them and will definitely go back to them again when needed. Matt the installer was also excellent - friendly, courteous and did a great job!Read More

It was such a great experience working with Kim and Caitlin. They are professional, talented, personable and attentive to detail. Kim came to our home to offer advice on the selection of materials and Caitlin also offered ideas and provided me with samples from the fabrics I was considering. The installation went smoothly and the results are excellent!. I look forward to working with them again.Read More

Urban Environments has been such a pleasure working with on a client project on the north side of Chicago. Kim and the team bring professionalism and kindness into each aspect of the project from providing design ideas and coordination of install day. My client's words to describe the finished product were "breathtaking" from the family room roman shades and tall sliding door draperies. The master bedroom also had flat romans and one set of drapery that is truly stunning. LID Chicago will continue to work with the UE team and is looking forward to future projects with them. Thanks again!!Read More

Urban Environments did an excellent job! Extremely professional, detail oriented, and a high-quality product. The entire process of samples, design, and installation was flawless. I highly recommend working with Catlin and Kim.Read More

They were fantastic. We had a particularly tricky job, fitting drapery into pockets that were quite tight, and not all even throughout the same room. They came up with creative solutions and then installed everything quickly and flawlessly. I liked how they were very keen to incorporate my wishes and make me happy, but also had useful professional opinions to share in order to create the best final result. I would HIGHLY recommend them. Great communicators and also just lovely people!Read More

Kim and her team do an A + job. Kim listens offers opinions in terms of choices that help a client achieve their vision. She met with me after work--none of this 9 to 5 pm business, which I appreciate. Her installer worked with us to accommodate our schedule. And, the work was delivered and installed before the holidays as promised! And, most importantly, we are very happy with the beautiful results! Kim has done smaller projects for me and her pricing is fair and reasonable.Read More

Excellent service and design ideas! I needed help with covering 2 side by side sliding doors with a transom over each door. From the moment I walked in the door at Urban Environments I felt surrounded by positive energy, no pressure, confident that I was understood and would be guided in my decision as much as I wanted from Kim and Caitlin. I could not have asked for a better experience with choosing my window coverings. And then it got even better -- their installer, Tom Ewald, was fabulous with the installation. I love my beautiful Roman Shades! Lots of compliments from everyone walking into my home!Read More

I was looking for drapes for a large loft bedroom window and didn't really know what I wanted. Kim was extremely helpful in the process. By asking questions about my needs, I figured out the look and she sent samples of the fabrics to my house so I could seem them in the light that they would be in vs. just the showroom. She helped me work within my budget so I could get the look I wanted. The installation process went smoothly and I couldn't be happier with the end result.Read More

I love working with Kim!! She is my constant go to as a designer for anything window, and, frankly for many other things too. Her knowledge of her field is amazing. She is a great problem solver, but knows the right way to manage a job so problems are non existent. Her subcontractors are very professional. I cannot say enough.Read More

I love Urban Environments. It was recommended to me by several different designers. I finally went in to check it out after being hired by a client that had just bought a 3 story house with many bare windows. She was in need of privacy asap. My design style is very earthy, textural, understated and yet elegant. I explained what I was looking for to the owner, Kim. She pulled out a hand full of books that fit the bill exactly. I LOVED THIS. If you are a Chicago designer that is tired of spending hours in the stale air of the Merchandise Mart looking for the perfect fabric, STOP. Go to Kim. She sorted through it all for you and has the best stuff. Kim worked around mine and the client's schedule and handled all the details from measuring to production to install. We had roller shades, roman shades and gorgeous drapery installed throughout the house. We also chose a wallpaper for the bathroom and she handled the measurement, order, delivery and install. When it comes to window treatments there is a lot that could go wrong. Go with an expert! This was a $30,000 project and transformed the look and feel of the entire house the day it was installed. I had another client with a very low budget. We went with woven wooden roman shades. I had her price everything out and then on behalf of my client had Home Depot come to price out something similar. To my surprise the pricing comparison was within a couple hundred dollars and yet Kim offered a better quality and more customized options. My client was also shocked. It was a no brainer, we passed on Home Depot for Urban Remains. It turned out beautifully and again, transformed the whole house. Her pricing is very competitive and of course she works well with designers. She is one! She makes my life easier and I love that. If you are nervous about "custom" window treatments, don't be, she's got this. Also, her staff is great.Read More
