How to Keep Cool This Summer

by Charlene 24 Jul 2015

Summer is here! So now is the time to prepare to keep cool this summer. Control the heat before it amplifies to stay cool for the entire summer. The first thing to start with is the interior of your home. After that, move to the outside. You'll eventually have a summer-ready home where you can keep cool and enjoy spending time with your loved ones. Here's how to get started:

Cover Your Windows

A home with open, bright windows can make for a beautiful space. However, even with new windows, outside heat can come in, heating up your house and increasing your energy bills. But to get the best heat reduction, you can't cover your windows with just anything. For optimal energy efficiency, choose cellular shades. If you still want that natural light during the summer, choose light filtering cell shades, and you'll have the best of both worlds.

Keep Your Lights Off

With light filtering shades, you can keep off your lights longer, helping to keep your home's interior cool and comfortable. You may not realize it at first, but leaving your lights on during the day can really heat up your home. Plus, keeping your lights off as long as possible will also save you money each month on your utility costs.

Swap Out Your Bedding


Change out your heavier winter bedding with linens specifically made for warmer weather. Being the right temperature while you sleep will help you to feel cooler the rest of the day. If you're overheated at night, you may feel as though you're catching up to stay cool all day.

Use Outside Misting Systems

Photo Credit:


Don't let the summer heat keep you from enjoying time outside. Install misting systems around your porch, deck, or backyard sitting area. It will keep you cool and you don't have to hide from the heat inside your house.

Cook outside as much as you can during the summer. Using your oven and stove will heat up your house, and it might be difficult to cool it back down right away. Instead, keep the heat outside where it belongs.

What's your favorite way to stay cool in the summer?

Surprising Back-to-College Necessities

by Charlene 17 Jul 2015

Your dorm or college apartment may supply basic bedding, but don't take any chances. Bring your own bedding. Not only can it give you peace of mind, but it's a great way to add color, personality, and style to your personal space. Quick Tip - Bring at least two sets of sheets. This will keep your bedding clean, even when your laundry is backing up.


Photo Credit:

Bring your own towels. Again, even if your dorm provides towels, it's probably best to use your own. However, the provided towels are great for an emergency. Choose bright, fun colors and patterns or go with a classic white so you can bleach them and keep them looking fresh and new.

Window Shades

Photo Credit:

You probably won't be allowed to drill in the required mounts for window blinds or shades. But you don't have to! Use Redi Shades instead. Just use the adhesive to attach them to the top of the window frame or on the outside of the window frame and that's all it takes! These are perfect for college life because they're cheap, easy to use, and they come in blackout, which means you can sleep whenever you want without light bothering you.

Hanging Organizers

Photo Credit:

In a dorm, chances are you won't have much floor space. That will be taken up by beds, dressers, and desks. Instead, opt for hanging organizers. Why not use that vertical space instead of wasting it? You'll be surprised how much you can store with hanging organizers.

Now you're ready to head off to college with all those other essentials, like shower shoes and your laptop. What's your must-have for college this semester?

by Charlene 23 Jun 2015

"I am very happy with our new blinds from Select Blinds! We purchased 5 Express Light Filtering Cordless Cellular Shades for our living room. We have a little house by the ocean and wanted to create privacy without blocking any of the view or the light. These blinds were perfection. When open, they are barely 3"... they just blend into the window frame and we have a full view of the water. Today is sunny and my blinds let in all that light, even when closed! This is just what we needed here in the northeast, after the long, brutal winter we had!"

Sharon M. is a Happy Customer!

by Charlene 19 Jun 2015

"I ordered 4 Premium Smooth Vertical Blinds, 3 for my kitchen and 1 for my son's bedroom as a trial. They were easy to install. PERFECT size! My kitchen looks like a new kitchen. Everyone that walks in my kitchen notices them right away with great compliments. I most definitely WILL be ordering more to change out my entire home. My next order will include my bedroom. The samples are the best thing in this world to get ahold of. I am most excited about my next order because I am ordering the @Home Collection Vertical Blinds, Hampton Cameo, for my bedroom. The sample is awesome and I can't wait. I really like the curtains throughout my home, but I do not think I will be adding curtains to my bedroom when I get my bedroom blinds because I love that sample so much."

How to Create the Perfect Guest Bedroom

by Charlene 12 Jun 2015

If you love hosting guests in your home, then you'll want to create the perfect guest room for your loved ones. You want it to have a luxurious hotel feel while still having all the comforts of home. Here are a few essentials you can add to take your guest room to the next level.

Blackout Window Shades

Most people sleep best in near-complete darkness. A blackout window shade is the best way to help your guests achieve their preferred sleeping environment. However, you may also have guests who prefer some light in the morning, to help them wake up, but they still want privacy. 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 shades are the perfect solution. With these shades, you can choose between light filtering fabrics and blackout. And you can even adjust them to have light filtering on top of the shade and blackout on the bottom. Give your guests all the light control they need. They'll thank you for it.

Fresh, Cozy Bedding

Use plush, inviting bedding for your guests. Mix and match lighter blankets with heavier throws, covering all your bases and giving your guests options. The right bedding can create a relaxing, rejuvenating guest bedroom. Don't forget about pillows and sheets, too. They can make a huge difference in the comfort of the bed.


Fresh Flowers

Photo Credit:

Add some fresh flowers to the bedside table. This will bring life into the room, add to the décor, and give the space a nice, light scent. If the guest room is a little bland, adding flowers will give it a beautiful pop of color.

Something to Read

Photo Credit:

Make sure to leave a few books, magazines, or current newspapers in the guest room. This will give your friend or family member something to read while they're relaxing or getting ready for bed. Everyone needs a few quiet moments to themselves, and giving your guests reading material will give them another reason to relax.

Now that you have all the essentials, add some personal touches throughout the space. You may find that everyone wants to be a house guest.

"We are a very happy customer with our recent order! We just finished remodeling our bedroom and the blinds were the finishing touch on the windows. We love the blinds so much because they are absolutely effortless to use, you can push them up and down with just one finger, such high quality, so inexpensive, and the fact that they have no cord is such a great safety feature for anyone with pets or children. 

"Our dog's name is Finn...he loves them too! :) We are just starting to show friends and family our remodel and my father-in-law already started measuring his windows at home to buy these same blinds we got from your company. So perfect for your older customers too that are looking for a economical and effortless window covering solution."
