“Hi there, Select Blinds! I LOVE the shades & blinds! Have used them at my home (in Greenpoint, Brooklyn) and my rental property (an awesome landmark brick building in Ridgewood, Queens). They’re amazing! Thank you for maintaining the quality, ease of install, and reasonable prices!”
Gail C. chose Express Light Filtering Cordless Cellular Shades.
Bonnie M. chose the 1″ Cordless Aluminum Mini Blinds.
Meryl A. chose the Express Light Filtering Cordless Cellular Shades.
“I love my new blinds, the Express Light Filtering Cordless Cellular Shades. The basil color was just what I wanted and really made my living room pop! Even the clown on the couch thought they enhanced the room. It took me a long time to find for just what I was looking, but these fit the bill perfectly.”
You don’t have to own a beach house to have a beach-inspired bedroom. You don’t even have to live near a body of water. It simply takes a few unique elements to create a clean, airy, and calm vibe. With beach-inspired décor, keep it subtle. Too many beach-themed items can easily become too much for a room. Instead of a literal beach theme, opt for a figurative theme, giving the vibe but without having to cover the walls with seashells. Simplicity will keep the feel of the room fresh and modern while giving you a relaxing space.
The Right Colors

Use white, blues, light greens, and browns. You can incorporate darker versions of these colors, but make the majority of them light. This is what will give your bedroom an airy feel.
Woven accents are a great way to incorporate theme-worthy color and interesting texture. Use a few well-placed woven baskets, a woven chair or headboard, or even woven window shades. These accents will bring an earthy feel and help balance out the blues and greens used throughout the bedroom.
You can control the feel of your bedroom with how you present your bedding. You don’t have to dress a bed to perfected extravagance. Keep it casual. Keep it comfortable. A good rule of thumb for bedding is to make it look effortless. That’s where the relaxed vibe comes from, but make sure it’s done with purpose to avoid simply looking disheveled. Linen bedding just might do the trick.

Every piece of furniture in your bedroom doesn’t have to be wood. But just a few prominent wood or driftwood-like pieces can solidify the beach feel without being too overwhelming. Consider incorporating driftwood into a table or even a piece of wall art.
You can find beach inspiration all around you. Don’t be afraid to mix in brighter colors for extra interest or experiment with unique accents and accessories. When you hit the perfect beach-inspired pitch, you’ll know. Then all you have left to do is relax and enjoy your new space.
Mike H. chose Select Double Cell Light Filtering Shades.
“We chose SelectBlinds from many vendors on the Internet because 1) we really liked the free samples, which were very helpful and 2) because of the promise of quick shipment. We are completely happy with the product…”
Andre D. chose Light Filtering/Blackout Cordless Shades.
“To our new friends at SelectBlinds.com:
“On June 30, 2015 we purchased several blinds from your company and have been ecstatically pleased with our purchase. We recently re-modeled our kitchen, dining room and converted a spare bedroom into a nursery for our beautiful new baby boy. We wanted a fresh look. We shopped several local stores to include two of the of the ‘big box’ stores, but to be honest; we were unable to find such quality product at such a reasonable price. We were so pleated with your company that we referred our contractor to your website since he was the one who ultimately installed them and was impressed with the ease of installation, their quick delivery to our doorstep and the overall product you provided.
“We installed a Light Filtering/Blackout Cordless Shade in our nursery and it was amazing how it transformed this once drab looking window casing to this magnificent window arrangement. I’ve included a picture of our nursery window. Thank you, SelectBlinds.com. We will definitely use your company for future purchases and will definitely refer our family and friends to your website for all their window treatment needs! Kudos!”
Jeff S. chose Express Light Filtering Cordless Cellular Shades.
“This is my most recent order with you. Bought last month for a new window over our sink that was installed. Having bought honeycomb blinds for our full length dining room windows in the past, we already knew your prices and quality and speed of delivery beat the others cold. We are very happy customers and will return for any needs and always do be sure to pass along your info and website to our friends. Being a Realtor, I also tell folks about you for their new homes and their move-up homes. Love you guys.”
Michael W. chose 1″ Designer Faux Wood Blinds.
“I was completely satisfied with my purchase. I was also pleasantly surprised that I had somebody call me back and verify that I made the right measurements and lengths for my blinds. I also, by mistake online, ordered a different color from the rest of the blinds and we’re able to catch that and fix it before they were produced and sent to me. I think your company does a fantastic job in the customer service and production department and I would recommend your company to anybody that need new blinds!”
Summer B. chose the Good Housekeeping 3/4″ Single Cell Light Filtering Shades.
Mary H. chose the Good Housekeeping 3/8″ Double Cell Light Filtering Shades for her library and her dining room.

Nancy L. loves her 2″ Designer Faux Wood Blinds.
“I have bought your Faux Wood Blinds (Economy line) at least 5 times over the past 6 years. My personal home is full of them, now my office and a new rental house are home to some of your blinds. I recently built a brand new home that I intend to rent out. I want to get top-dollar for the rent, so I thought to get the 2” blinds would be better than typical plastic/vinyl mini blinds. So, I once again used the Economy line 2” faux wood blinds. They are gorgeous! I am so impressed. They are so easy to install (I’m a girl, and I installed them all myself). Now that I’ve installed a few, I have the routine down. I mark the spots with pencil, pre-drill all the holes, then the screws go in nice and easy (the screws supplied are NOT self drilling – sad face). I can now install a blind in about 10 minutes flat, if that. They look SO pretty. …I love this tiny window over the stair landing. Just in case you need privacy, I put a blind on it. This is the Master Bath vanity with a lovely reflection of my blinds in the mirror there. So pretty and spa-like!”
