Best Blinds for Moms: How Shades Can Support You With Your Little Ones

Shoutout to all the moms out there – and we mean, all the moms. Whether you’re a mom to children, pets, or even plants, thank you for taking care of them! Now it’s time for us to take care of you. Check out our recommended shades that can support you with the little ones and decrease your stress levels.

For Moms

A mom’s best friend is a blackout cellular shade. It’s energy efficient, insulates against the heat and cold, and reduces noise. The inside of the cells are lined with mylar, so it blocks up to 99 percent of incoming light. What better shade can you think of for a nursery?

Not only will blackout window treatments help your little ones sleep, but they’ll help you sleep better too! Install them in your bedroom for a good night’s sleep.

And don’t worry mom – if cellular shades aren’t your style, you can always see there’s an option to upgrade to a room darkening or blackout liner for your current window covering. The liner restricts light from going through the shades’ fabric.

Plus, all our products come with a Cordless Lift option, which is the safest choice for homes with young children and pets.

For Plant Moms

As a plant mom, you know all about the importance of light control. Too little or too much can harm your plant baby, which is why you need a window covering with automation.

Automation is an add-on when you upgrade to a Motorized Lift, so you can pair it with Alexa, Google, & Apple products. Set the time when you want the shades to rise and lower based on how much your plants need. If you can’t remember if you lowered the shades, you can check your smartphone and adjust them.

For Dog (or Cat) Moms

We love fur-babies as much as the next dog mom, but dogs and cats can be a handful. We’ve seen a fair share of blinds and curtains destroyed from pets peeking through blinds or zooming through the house. Unfortunately, no one has invented an indestructible, pet-proof window covering yet. So here’s what we suggest doing in the meantime.

First off, safety! If you didn’t read it earlier, we’ll say it again: window coverings with the Cordless Lift option is the safest choice for homes with pets and kids. There is little to no risk of them accidentally getting tangled in dangling cords.

Let’s say now that your window coverings did take a beating. Our 5-Year Unlimited Warranty covers any damage you can think of, including bored pets. Depending on the product, you could get a warranty replacement in 10 days.

There you have it!

These window treatments and features can relieve some stress as you go through the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Treat yourself with shades you’ll love and that will help you out!

How to Avoid Buyer’s Remorse (Without Gaining 20 lbs from Eating Ice Cream)

At some point we’ve all learned: wine and Amazon don’t mix.

Besides making you a prime target for porch pirates, buying something you don’t really need or getting something and realizing it’s not what you really wanted thanks to those late-night shopping sprees can leave you with a severe case of buyer’s remorse — and a few unwanted pounds.

Buyer’s remorse strikes almost all of us at one time or another. And we all handle it differently. In a fun little poll we took recently, finding solace from it in the form of food and drink (specifically wine and chocolate) was one way our followers shared. An equal number turned things around by buying more stuff, while a few others had a good soak in the tub and cried it out.

Most people, though, simply choose to cancel or return their order. Which is easy to do with Select Blinds. In fact, we give you a 24-hour grace (or sobering up) period before sending your order on to our manufacturing plant. Just so you can make sure you’ve got everything right or that you aren’t having any second thoughts.

Another way we help you avoid buyer’s remorse? Our 90-day, 100% satisfaction guarantee.

If there’s a defect in a product’s material or workmanship, or if it isn’t made to the exact size and specifications you ordered, we promise to make it right at no cost to you for up to 90 days from the date of purchase.

And if you’re not happy with your custom covering for any other reason within the first 90 days — you don’t like the color, you need a different mount or lift style, changed your mind about a feature, etc. – we’ll remake that same product in the same size for the same great discount price you originally paid, plus an additional 10% off.

Even if you make a mistake on your order, we have you covered. With our F.I.T. Guarantee, if you have an “oops!” moment measuring your window and your custom covering doesn’t fit, simply call us and we’ll remake that exact same product for you (one remake per order) for free within 30 days of the date your order was delivered. (You just cover a small $10 shipping fee.)

Ordering lots of free samples is another way to make sure you’ll never be sorry for shopping with us. Try up to 15 at a time to find the perfect color and type of blinds you’ll love. Reviewing some of the hundreds of thousands of 5-star reviews and pictures we get from happy customers (check them out, right here on The Blinds Spot) will give you even more peace of mind. And if you need a little inspiration, follow us on FacebookInstagram and Twitter to see how some of your favorite social influencers use our custom blinds and shades in their most popular projects.

With our team of experienced window design experts always here to help, you’ll never have to worry about getting something you don’t want or need. Just call or click to talk with us and turn that frown upside down!

So don’t worry about that extra glass of wine. Now that you know you can shop responsibly and remorse-free here on!
