Over 35 Years Of Experience With Commercial Window Treatments
The K&H Custom Window Treatments team has been customizing windows of businesses since 1986. Our work can also be seen in businesses beyond the Lehigh Valley, including Harrisburg, Scranton and Philadelphia. We specialize in all types of manual and motorized custom shades, blinds, draperies and valances, privacy curtains and stage curtains.
K&H Custom Window Treatments has been covering the windows of businesses in Pennsylvania since 1986. That’s a lot of shades, blinds, drapes, privacy curtains, and stage curtains – enough to guarantee that you’ve seen our work in one venue or another. Shades, motorized shades, blackout shades, and privacy curtains for Healthcare is one of our top lines of work. Our work can be seen in corporate offices, healthcare facilities, senior living facilities, education facilities, restaurants, and apartments.
Like most good things in life, the K&H story begins with hard work, persistence, and a really great mom. Sandy Kuhns and her mother, Norma Heller, began their business with $500, a well-worn sewing machine, a dad in the stage-rigging business, and solid accounting know-how. Although most of their early clients were residential, they soon worked their way into commercial projects by persistently calling on contractors and bidding jobs. Just getting their foot in the door took determination; Sandy recalls the challenges of being females in a predominantly male-owned business. But their professionalism and consistent efforts paid off. Thirty years later, the first contractor to “take a chance” on the young business remains one of their strongest clients.
K&H is still a family enterprise. Although Norma Heller is no longer with us, Sandy Kuhns remains the President and CEO. Mark Heller retired at the end of 2019, after more than 20 years as estimator and project manager for K&H. Craig Heller, Sandy’s brother, currently oversees field operations for direct client sales, measuring, and installations. He is our stage curtain expert.
Drew Heller, Mark’s son, joined the ownership team of K&H in 2021 after 15 years of working in the company. He started an installer and then moved to Project manager and Estimator, and is currently the Commercial Operations Director.
“We give our clients what they need to help them solve their problems. That’s what we try to do every day,” Kuhns says. “I think the world is so busy these days that people aren’t used to good customer service anymore.”
So, as from their beginning in 1986, K&H adheres to the same simple principle – treat people the way they would want to be treated, with high-quality products, individual attention, and superior customer service.

Our Simple Golden Rule
Our goal is to make the window treatment purchase and installation easy for our customers.

Based on years of experience, our team is able to recommend reliable products, and provide scheduling, installation, and on-time completion in a timely fashion. We often work around construction turnover dates, company move-in dates, and Department of Health inspections. We adhere to the same simple principle our company was founded on; treat people the way they want to be treated – with high-quality products, individual attention, and superior customer service.
