We were thrilled recently to celebrate our 19th birthday in August!
Since our inception in 2003, when our dynamic founder, Rick Steele launched our company, it’s been quite a ride! Several years ago, Rick was on the hunt for blackout shades for his daughter to help her sleep better when he discovered only hassle and high costs in his search to find custom window treatments. He decided to create a company for people like himself who like to DIY-design their homes, and are in need of customized solutions. (back then we were known as “Select Shops”) was born. Since then, our dedicated Customer Care Team has served well over 9 million happy customers (that’s a lot of windows covered!) as a proud Arizona-based company, with nearly 200 employees.
We couldn’t do any of this without such an amazing team, that offers one-on-one assistance and guidance to help make our customers’ journey as seamless as possible. Together, we’re bound and determined to make the world a better place. One window at a time. Our relationship with our customers is stronger than ever, and we’ve never been more excited to help people with their window covering and interior design project needs.
Trust us. You’ll love shopping with SelectBlinds! See what our customers have to say about us in their own words!
In the spirit of bragging about ourselves (just a little bit), here are some more stories, landmarks, and information about our company that we like to share to help you get to know us a little better.

SELECTBLINDS.COM: We’re All In
SelectBlinds realizes we are part of a larger community. From raising money for disaster relief, to Rick Steele personally running nearly 200 miles to collect shoes for kids in need, to donating our products to Habitat for Humanity to decorate the houses they build for families, to our employees donating their time to help charities like Feed My Starving Children, we do whatever we can to truly “show up” for our community at large.
Did You Know?
SelectBlinds.com was the first window treatments company to make ALL of its products available with Kid-friendly cordless lift. A few years back we announced a “free cord cleats” initiative, for customers and non-customers alike. In turn, the company donated more than 82,000 window blind/shade cord cleats to families with children (Cord cleats are metal or plastic safety devices that attach to the inside of a window frame. They allow a user to wrap/tie down a loose window covering cord to prevent its being left dangling and accessible to children or pets).
SelectBlinds.com is also considered one of the pioneers in popularizing the use of online customer reviews as a marketing driver.
The SelectBlinds.com Guarantee
We stand behind the quality of all our products, and offer a free 3-year limited warranty on each one that we sell – with always the option to upgrade to a 3-year unlimited or a 5-year unlimited warranty.
We also offer you with our F.I.T. Guarantee. If you happen to submit an incorrect measurement by mistake and your product doesn’t fit your window, your first replacement per order is on us!
We’re that certain you’re going to love our products, and that they’ll be a lovely addition to your home for a long time to come.
