Cynthia P. is a Happy SelectBlinds.com Customer!

After ordering a sample, we purchased these 2″ Essential Cordless Faux Wood Blinds in Shiplap Ivory Smooth for our new home. We cannot say enough about the exceptional quality, especially for such a good price. Customer Service was also very helpful and polite each time we called. We will happily recommend Select Blinds!

WOW! Cynthia, your new home looks amazing! And the new blinds match your windows and decor so well. The soft, green walls are also super soothing – perfect for a bedroom.

Honestly, we can’t decide which room we love more. The blinds look great in both! And all that beautiful light shining in – it’s almost ethereal. Great choices all around!

Norbert, we love the look of your new Cotton colored Classic Faux Wood Shutters! They’re so classy and elegant and really make your bay window look elegant! And the red couch – which looks super comfy, by the way – is a great way to add a pop of color to your room!

Love the new look, Elizabeth! Those woven woods are a perfect match for your décor and we’re loving the increased “cozy factor!” Looks like a magazine-worthy family room anyone would be proud to call their own!

The bright green pops of color were already a fantastic touch, but now they really pop with the natural look of your new shades! Thanks so much for the review and we hope to work with you again in the future!

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!

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!

“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!

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!

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.
