Happy Customer, Kim S., Recommends Select Blinds for the Office

Kim S. used our Classic Cordless Blackout Shades to cut down on glare and cool off the new office of CeramFab Inc. , a ceramic fibers company that sells products like blankets, bricks, paper sheets, etc., used in high temp furnaces and areas requiring high temp/flame resistant protection.

” We are very happy that we chose to go with SelectBlinds.com for our office window blinds. I was having a hard time finding blackout shades that would fit our windows because they’re a little outside standard measurements, but these were easy to order and the color selection was fantastic. We needed blackout shades that could keep the glare off of the computer screens in the offices and darken the conference room enough for a projector, and the Classic Cordless Blackout Shades (Wirecutter’s Top Pick for Blackout Shades in 2019) work great. We received our order in less than two weeks from the date of order. The shades were very easy to install. Two people put up 10 shades in about one hour. I would absolutely recommend these shades to anyone looking for window blinds.”

Happy Customer Greg K. Doubles Down with Woven & Faux Wood Blinds

Woven Wood Shades from Select Blinds fit on doors and windows

So many details in buying a house and making it a home! Meet our Happy Customer Greg K, who made our day when he told us, “My wife and I were searching to find window coverings for a new house addition we had just completed. My wife came across SelectBlinds which had exactly what we were looking for at a competitive price point. The entire order came very quickly and was super simple to install. Below are a few pictures of the installed blinds which look great.”

For the Master Suite, Greg and his wife chose SelectBlinds.com Designer Series Woven Wood Shades in Nassau to add texture and dimension to this beautiful space. They also added blackout liners to help them get a good night’s sleep. Adding blackout liners is a great choice, too, for areas where you want to keep the glare off TVs. They also help block the heat in the summer and keep out the cold out in the winter.

For their little man’s creative playroom, they chose 2″ Designer Faux Wood Blinds in Pearl White and added the decorative edge binding in Coconut to cover the small route holes and cording. Not only does this feature add functionality by adding privacy and blocking light, it also creates a high-end designer look! We hope he loves it as much as we do!

Thanks, Greg. We’re so happy SelectBlinds.com got to be part of your new addition!

See Why Happy Customer Jo Ann Refers Her Friends to Select Blinds

Select Blinds customer pairs floor length curtains with grey roller shades

Have you ever created the perfect looking room? How about the perfect looking window?

With windows, the trick is finding coverings that both look good and provide privacy. And when we say “look good” we mean not just in the window, but as part of the room itself. Sometimes it all just comes together, with the perfect coverings combining with everything else to form a setting that just seems…right.

For Jo Ann A., that’s just how things are in her dining room.

Jo Ann entered our contest for a chance to win a $250 Visa gift card (join our Happy Customer Program) with photos of her Select Room Darkening Roller Shades with Cassette. As you can see from the pictures, they certainly look good in her dining room.

We liked Jo Ann’s photos so much, in fact, we decided to learn a little more about what went into choosing them.

First, we wondered why she went with the Select Room Darkening Roller Shades with Cassette.

“I wanted that type of window covering because when the sun sets it was that side of my house and it gets hot. Also, I want to have a privacy because ever since Hurricane Michael hit us last October, we had some damage and until now we had no fences and I don’t want my neighbors or strangers seeing us eating and seeing whats inside my house.”Happy customer pairs Select Blinds grey roller shades and custom drapery

That makes a lot of sense. Room Darkening shades provide an amazing amount of privacy, and they will help keep rooms cooler by keeping them darker. Those are both great qualities, but we wanted to know what Jo Ann likes best about her shades. She said she appreciates how easy they are to roll up or down, but that’s not all.

“I loved them especially with cassette they look awesome and it looks great in my windows. I’m in love with it and even my husband is enjoying it and fell in love with it too! I’ve never before felt so excited to be in that room every day just to look at it.”

How great is that? The shades have become a focal point for Jo Ann.  As an industry leader in making window treatments safe for kids, we are also excited over her choosing a cordless option.  The shades and drapes go together so nicely, which makes sense since Jo Ann said her love for the shades led to getting new curtains.

“I had an old light-colored curtains but when I tried it on it just doesn’t look awesome so I have to go find curtains that would look great with my new roller shades and I got a lot of compliments from my friends/family and they even asked where I got my shades and gave them your website.”

(Note: Check out our selection of curtains here.)

We totally get how getting some sweet new shades could send you down the rabbit hole of needing more new stuff to bring out the best in them. It turns out that the shades have helped to bring the best out of Jo Ann’s home and she couldn’t be happier about her experience.

“All I can say is you all did a great job.  You all make sure that customers are very satisfied and happy. My first experience having a roller shade is way above my expectations and they make my house look great❤❤❤ (editor’s note: the hearts were Jo Ann’s).

“Thank you very much for making my room/house look great again and I’m thinking of replacing all the blinds in the rest of my house soon. You all did a great and awesome job!”

We appreciate that, Jo Ann, but the real credit goes to you. Great choice and we can’t wait to see what you do next!

Happy Customer Karla Sought Privacy on the Golf Course

Row of windows covered with white blinds in home

If anyone understands the various purposes window treatments can serve, it’s us at Select Blinds. Really, we totally get that while some of the coverings are there to look good, many times they do plenty more than just that.

Want to keep your home cooler? We’ve got some that can do that. How about wanting to filter the incoming light? Yep, we’ve got that too. If blocking UV rays from entering your home is a priority, that’s certainly no problem, either.

However, one common thread that is found with most uses is that of privacy. While we may like our neighbors, most of us don’t want to give them unfiltered access into our homes via windows.

That was especially true for Happy Customer Karla H., who entered our contest for a chance to win a $250 Visa gift card (learn how to enter our Happy Customer Program) after being quite pleased with her choices, which included some Classic Light Filtering Cordless Top Down Bottom Up Shades and Classic Blackout Cordless Top Down Bottom Up Shades!

Karla was so happy, in fact, that we felt like we needed to know more about why.

The first thing we wanted to know was how the overall shopping experience went.

“The first thing I did was to get samples.  Once I chose my color I went on line to find the blind that I wanted.  The samples came fast and online ordering was a snap.”

Indeed, the ability to order up to 15 free samples makes things so much easier. After all, how can you know what a shade will look like in your home if it has never been in your home?

But with so many samples to choose from, why did you decide to pick the shades you did? 

“I chose the black out top down bottom up in our living room.  We live on a golf course with a night (east) sun coming directly into our home.  It was necessary to have the blackout shades.  The top down bottom up gives us the ability to limit what golfers  see from our backyard.  I can still let light in from the top but limit their ability to see in. I also chose a light filtering top down bottom up shade for my sun room to let as much light in as possible but still limit outsiders views.”

That makes so much sense. Golf course living sounds great, but that also means a lot of strangers walking by as they prepare for their next shot (or search for their wayward ball).

So once you figured out which shades you wanted, the challenge would seem to be the measuring and then installation. However, Karla said measuring was “easy” and that when it comes to installation, it goes quickly so long as you have all the tools you need.

That sounds right to us, and it’s clear to see why Karla is happy with her purchase. Finishing up, is there anything else she would like for us to know?

“I still have  one window to order yet.  It is a high up window so I am thinking about ordering a remote shade for that one.  Thank you for making the process easy and affordable.”

We’re glad to hear you’ll be letting us help again. In the meantime, here’s a link to our custom coverings for skylight windows.

Marilyn C. Eats Up Our Snickerdoodle Shades!

“I just love my new blackout shades! We ordered them in Snickerdoodle, and they’re just great! So much easier to operate than the vertical blinds we used to have, too. Great job, SelectBlinds! You rock!”

A huge “THANK YOU” to Marilyn C. of Pennsylvania for sending in photos of her new honeycomb shades! She replaced her old vertical blinds on this wide double window to make way for two of our beautiful Select Single Cell Blackout Shades in Snickerdoodle. No more broken, swaying vanes for this front yard view! Our Cordless Lift and Lock system is easy up / easy down for quick privacy and light blocking! MJ even had great things to say about our customer service agents who helped her with custom sizing so her new window treatments covered her windows perfectly!

“Just to let you know, your salesman Charles Arrington was AWESOME. We didn’t even think we were capable of measuring for these shades and he was so helpful! He guaranteed me these would fit and they  do — to a ‘T’! Thanks again for your awesome product and believe me, we looked all over. Even saw shades over $800 that were nowhere near as nice as yours!”

Thanks again, MJ! We look forward to working together and hope to hear more stories from the East Coast (the birthplace of many of us here at SelectBlinds) in the near future!

Cheryl S. Is a Happy SelectBlinds.com Customer!

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.

Long Wood Dining Room Table Under White Roman Shades

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!
