Blooming azalea bush seen through Designer 2 Inch Faux Wood Blinds

“This picture is of our new Designer Contemporary 2″ Faux Woods next to my recliner in the living room. I used to have curtains and sheers, which were hard to deal with. With the gorgeous azalea blooming right next to the window at the end of April this year, I could open these to enjoy nature at its best and close them to ensure complete privacy whenever I wished! They also make the rooms look bigger and ensure a much cleaner look inside of the house than the curtains did.

We have since ordered two more blinds for the dining area, which we have also installed, and two more for the double front window in the living room area that we will be installing on our next trip to North Carolina. We are so pleased with our choice from Select Blinds!

We have to agree, Cheryl. These faux wood window treatments definitely complement the colors in your beautiful mountain vacation home. So glad you could use them in both your living and dining rooms to enjoy the spectacular views there.  (I don’t think I’d ever get out of that recliner! 😉 ) Thanks for sharing!

For J. Finlay’s Roman Shades, Motorization Is Key

White Select Blinds motorized roman shades under custom cornice

One of the best parts about our industry is seeing what people are able to do with the window treatments they order. While we are certainly aware of what each of our products can do, seeing them in action is truly something else.

And when our customers are proud to show off their rooms with some freshly-installed window treatments, we want to make sure they get that chance. Becoming a “Happy Customer” is how you get entered into a contest to win a $250 Visa gift card.

Not surprisingly there are plenty of entries (we are the highest-rated and most-reviewed window fashions company in the world, after all), but looking through them one thing we’ve learned from our Happy Customers is that there is no one style or color that makes them, well, happy. Every room requires something a little different, and we’d like to know more about what went into creating each unique look.

The best way to find out is to ask, which is what we’re doing here.

So welcome to one of our newest Happy Customers, J. Finlay, who ordered Classic Roman Shades in the Simply White color

J. told us the shades arrived sooner than expected and were easy to install, while the upgraded motorization is a hit.

We’re certainly glad she’s happy, but why go with the Roman Shades in the first place?

“I decided to order my Roman Shades from Select Blinds because of the price, quality, and choice of colors.  I wanted white so it would match our window trim/crown molding and wanted a more contemporary look, so I chose the flat fold option to replace my heavy blinds.

“Since my window faces west, it was a difficult decision whether to go with blackout shades or light filtering.  I chose the light filtering, and as you can see in the third picture (below), it works beautifully partially down with bright sunlight shining.  Choosing the motorized remote was also a factor in choosing this shade.”

It is great to know that installation was easy, as we’re sure you couldn’t wait to start using your new shades. Now that they have been up for a bit, what do you like best about them?

“With the motorized remote, I can easily raise or lower this shade to allow more light into the room, and lower it when the sun is on the west side of the house.  My cats can now sit on the window ledge and look out at the world on that sides of the house, and when it’s colder, they love to lay on the floor where the sun shines in.

“Since they are white, I did spray the front of the shade with fabric protector spray, and used a UV spray on the back of the fabric since Florida sun is brutal.”

Of course we want the cats to be happy, and it’s good that both you and your feline friends are enjoying what the shades have to offer. It’s clear why you are a fan of your Roman Shades, but is there anything else you’d like for us to know?

“I will definitely consider replacing another blind in my house with a Roman Shade from Select Blinds.  Detailed measuring instructions and online videos really helped when placing my order.”

That’s what we like to hear, both for shopping with us again and being helped by the instructions.  We for sure understand why some would be hesitant to do this all on their own, but we’re glad you found out how simple the process can be. From a look at the photos, it’s easy to see why you’re a fan!

But beyond the contest, we really like to know why people not only chose their window coverings, but also what they like best. The best way to find out is to, well, ask, which is what we’re doing here.

So say “Hello” to Sharon Almstrom, who ordered two Select 1″ Blackout Pleated Shades and three Select Double Cell Blackout Shades from us in February 2019.

Sharon told us she was “definitely happy” with the purchases, adding that there were already nice coverings in some of the rooms of her house but that it was time to upgrade the bedrooms “to be as  nice too!”

We asked Sharon to elaborate a bit on her experience with Select Blinds, here’s what she had to say:

Why did you decide to order these window coverings?

“For the master bedroom we knew we needed blackout but wanted something kind of classy looking. Our living room already had 1” pleated light filtering shades and we really liked those. So after ordering a few color samples of the blackout pleated shades, we picked a simple white that will go with everything.

“In our children’s rooms, when we first moved in, all three of the windows had broken mini blinds. We only had one child at the time though. We quickly ran out to a big box store and for about $50 bought some single cell blackout shades. They were okay but a little narrow for the window and hung crooked, even though they were installed straight at the top.

“So when the second child was born and we needed a new shade for her room, we decided to change the older child’s shades to a better version at the same time. So both of their rooms got blackout double cell shades. It’s amazing how dark it is in their rooms now for midday naps!”

Before and After Using SelectBlinds.com

Our blackouts are great at helping the little ones sleep. How about the installation process?

“Installation was pretty easy. Maybe 10-15 minutes per window. Checked to see that all parts were present and would fit and then it was just a matter or measuring and installing!

“The hardest part was not being mad at the extra holes from the previous owner’s lazy installation of cheap window treatments.”

White Honeycomb Shades with Purple Floral Valance and Wall Paint

Our coverings sure do block the perfect amount of light. So, now that they are a part of your home, what do you like best about them? 

“The new shades look very nice, crisp, sophisticated. This is a relatively new house for us so being able to upgrade things like the shades to something really nice looking is wonderful. And the blackout feature makes it great for sleeping when it’s daylight, whether it be sleeping in in the morning or an afternoon nap!”

Looking at the photos it is easy to see why Sharon is so excited about her home’s newest additions.

And with that, we are pleased to share the story of another happy customer!

Introducing Another Happy Customer, Denice L.

Designer Series Woven Wood Shades in a Happy Customers House - Denice L.

Here at Select Blinds we pride ourselves on  how you feel about us. After all, there’s a reason we love to highlight the fact that we are the highest-rated and most-reviewed window fashions company in the world!

We really enjoy helping people improve their rooms and lives with custom window shades at an affordable price. We can’t help but smile when customers share their excitement with us, and of course becoming a “Happy Customer” is how you get entered into a contest to win a $250 Visa gift card.

But beyond the contest, we really like to know why people not only chose their window coverings, but also what they like best. The best way to find out is to, well, ask, which is what we’re doing here.

So say “Hello” to Denice L., who ordered two Designer Series Woven Wood Shades from us in September 2018.

SelectBlinds.com Designer Series Woven Wood Shades in the home of Denice L.

Denise told us she was “extremely satisfied” with her purchase as the shades completed her master bathroom windows.

But we were wondering, what led her to SelectBlinds.com  in the first place? 

“I have been using Instagram and Houzz to inspire me during our building process and decorating our new home. I happen to be on Instagram and noticed a home decorated with Select Blinds and loved the look. I can’t wait to buy more for the rest of my windows.”

We can’t wait to help with the rest of Denice’s window covering needs. But with so many styles to choose from, why start with the Designer Series Woven Wood Shades?

“I happened to be on Instagram and noticed a home decorated with Select Blinds and loved the look. Wanted the same color and texture.”

That makes sense, and from the looks of things you made a great choice. Speaking of things you did, how did the installation process go?

“The process was very simple and had both sets of blinds up within half hour.”

We knew our coverings were easy to install, but that’s impressive! Now that they are installed, what do you enjoy most about the shades?

“The look it gave my bathroom made it feel more complete and high end.  Love the ease of pulling it up or down with the round cord.”

We are so glad to hear that. Well, it looks like you are indeed a happy customer. Is there anything else you’d like us to know?

“I thought the ordering process was super easy it walked me through everything I needed to do. I like that you can order samples to see the color and texture of the blind.”

That’s the idea! Thanks for shopping with us, Denice, and we look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Andrea B. Is a Happy SelectBlinds.com Customer

“We recently ordered three Premium Flat Roller Shades for our family room windows.  We absolutely love these shades!  Just last night my husband said, ‘They look like something that would have cost a lot more than $350 [what we paid].’  Some would describe my husband as cheap, so for him to be so pleased with this expense is a huge compliment!

I love the look of them, and they’re easy to open and close. I like that they still let in some light (we ordered white shades), but yet give privacy and cut out the glare on the TV.  We have two more windows in our living room that we also plan to purchase the same shades for in the near future.”

These are our favorite rollers, too, Andrea! Just love the unique zebra-like lines you get on the windows when they’re opened. Both beautiful and functional; great choice! Thanks for the kind words and awesome pics (it isn’t easy to capture their full effect).

Jordan H. Is a Happy SelectBlinds.com Customer!

“AMAZING! HUGE VALUE! BEAUTIFUL! 

I replaced some LEVOLOR blinds that came with the house and after at least 15 years, finally a string broke in the largest living room window. So I replaced the living room set and added to a newly remodeled laundry area window. Will for sure buy these for every other window in this and our rental house! 

Here is a picture of our bay window in the living room! What a huge difference they’ve made!”

Can’t thank you enough for the kind words (and review!), Jordan! So happy to hear and see how great these Signature Light Filtering Cordless Top Down Bottom Up Cellular Shades (in Taupe) look. Please be sure to send us more photos when you redo the rest of the house (and rental). 🙂

Cindy H. Is a Happy SelectBlinds.com Customer!

“We love our new Signature Cordless Blackout Shades [in Classic White]! My husband put them up right away. We have draw-string cellular blinds in the other windows and he has had to restring them many times, which is a pain. Our windows are very long, so we can’t just go and buy [window treatments] anywhere. This will really help our grandkids sleep better when they are here in February. Your prices were very good compared to others. Thank you so much for such great pricing and service!”

Hey, Cindy! I’m sure the grandkids will sleep well with these on those long windows. Wirecutter has rated them best blackout shade, so they should definitely do the trick!
