In 2003, Rocky Mountain Shutters & Shades opened its doors to answer the call for high quality products and client-focused service in the Denver area. The professionals of Rocky Mountain Shutters & Shades go above and beyond to guarantee your satisfaction.
My name is Kristen Brown, and I am the owner of Rocky Mountain Shutters and Shades, along with my husband Quentin. My Dad, Alan Stremel, began this company in 2003. Both Quentin and I have been working alongside my Dad since the beginning. We are proud to carry on the mission that began this company and still thrives today–serving the Denver community by helping clients and making sure that everyone is happy with their purchase and looks at their window coverings everyday with joy!
Outside of work, our passion is our kids and family. We have two busy, active kids that enjoy soccer, art, animals and being outdoors. I love being outside when I can. I enjoy skiing in the winter and in the garden during the warm months, with our 13 chickens, 3 ducks, 2 cats, and 1 dog.
