Conveniently located on 202 in Blue Bell, we service Montgomery and Bucks County, along with the surrounding Philly regions.  We also go to New Jersey for our shore clients! We provide full customer service from Design Consultations to product installations, ensuring our clients’ expectations are exceeded.  Being that we are a small, family business, we take the time to get to know our clients, their main concerns, as well as their dreams for their home and help make them come true is a stress-free, timely, and personable manner!  It is our goal to make long-lasting relationships with our clients, treating them as part of our family!

I was hesitant to redo the window treatments on our large bow window, but Amy at Ambiance Design made it easy!  She came to our home with ideas, material swatches, and lots of suggestions.  What we ended up with were beautiful new sheers flanked by two beautiful drape panels.  She even helped with a coordinating kitchen valance.  It was the finishing touch to a 3 month long renovation.  We could not be happier.  Amy was great, and we look forward to using her and Ambiance Design in the future.

A pleasure to deal with.  Helpful without being pushy and mindful of budgets.  Completed on time and installed at our convenience.  Will use this company again and recommend it.

Gillian Norman

Our purchase of cellular shades from Ambiance Design was all we could hope for.  Everyone we worked with during the process, from our initial walk-in to the showroom through to the installation in our home, was friendly, knowledgeable & professional. The shades are exactly what we had envisioned, and they work beautifully in the space. My husband and I would recommend Ambiance Design to anyone looking for quality window treatments handled by a professional staff.


Susan Smith Klinger

Working with Ambiance Design was such a delight from start to finish.  I needed to buy blinds for a design showroom and had no idea where to start.  I set up an appointment with Ambiance Design and the owner, Laura, patiently worked with me for nearly an hour during that first meeting to help me pick the right thing.  Laura then came out to measure on sight to ensure we were ordering the right size.  Austin was prompt and polite during installation and completely cleaned up after himself.  Even calling the front desk staff at Ambiance is pleasant!  Cannot recommend them more for your project!

From the minute I walked through the door at Ambiance Design, I was met by lovely people who were all ready to assist.  They helped me locate the perfect window shade for a difficult sized window. Everyone at this family run company are professional, helpful and friendly! I would definitely recommend their services!

Cyndi Lawrence

Absolutely perfect from start to finish.  Ambiance Design came to my house, made great recommendations, sent a proposal quickly, made revisions as I needed (continued to make recommendations as I changed my mind a million times) and then installed with courtesy, professionalism, and real skill.  I look forward to continuing my relationship with them as I move forward with additional window treatment projects in my home.  Thank you!!!

I had an excellent experience with Ambiance Design.  The showroom is beautiful, and you can see and feel what you are purchasing.  Laura and Dan were great to work with and fit my installation into their busy schedule to accommodate to my event.  I highly recommend this company.

Melissa Fabiani

Great experience from beginning to the end of order for custom shutters. Amy was on time and provided a wealth of help to us, Andrea communicated to us all during the process and Dan was right on time for the installation, and the work was done cleanly and neatly.
I would recommend Ambience highly and look forward to doing another project with them. Thanks!

Chuck Loh

Creative, beautiful and economical! Amy and her team did an amazing job on my project of doing window treatments in my dining room, living room and master bedroom. I had received a quote from a competitor for over $10K! So, I reached out to Amy…she met with me and guided me through multiple options, colors and price points. We came up with a beautiful project that was a fraction of the cost and I couldn’t be more pleased! Thank you, Amy and team! I highly recommend!!!

I’m finding it’s always a pleasure to work with the Ambiance team. The first time I used them for wooden blinds with tapes. We live in an 1836 Federal style house and it’s important to us to keep the feeling of an old house while updating. Laura came and measured with her son, and Dan (her husband) installed. A family business is great because they are all vested in your satisfaction. Dan even recommended a camera he was using to take pictures, which I bought for my husband for Christmas… saved me the research 🙂

My second experience was having Plantation Shutters installed in our dining room. As I mentioned, we live in an old house and nothing is square. Amy worked with my husband, a builder, to figure out the best way to hang the shutters so the old trim would still show. To say he is particular is an understatement, but the Ambiance team is as well. His job was to square the opening; Amy’s was to measure correctly and match the custom color woodwork. Once again, Dan came… this time with his son-in-law (I love it!!) and did a beautiful installation and (very important) clean up job. While we were all admiring the finished product and Dan was taking pictures, he showed my husband a new lens for the camera…his birthday is in July!

I recommend Ambiance to my friends, and I recommend them to you as well. You will not be disappointed!

Susan Hutchinson

What a lovely group of people! They were all so warm, friendly and helpful to me when I stopped by with an older shade, not purchased there, but in need of a new cord. Laura and Austin repaired it on the spot and at no charge. As a Senior citizen and nearby Blue Bell neighbor I highly recommend others to stop by , meet and greet them, and give Ambiance Design your business. Thank you Laura, Austin, Andrea and Emily.
