Free In-Home Consultation
At your convenience, appointments are arranged in the comfort of your home or place of business. It goes without saying that shopping in your personal space, surrounded by the furniture, decor, lighting, walls and floor that will complement your custom window coverings is the only way to shop. So, Budget Blinds “brings the store to your door!” During this free consultation, we discuss your style, design vision and any practical considerations, such as lighting privacy, insulation needs, or child and pet safety. Sample window treatments and design guides are then reviewed while expert measurements are taken. Finally, in consultation and cooperatively with you, we select the styles, colors and type of window treatment perfectly suited for your space and budget. Whether it is a commercial or residential space, one window or an entire house, rest assured that Budget Blinds has the custom window coverings to fit your budget!
Expert Measuring & Installation
During your free in-home consultation, we pay particular attention to ensure that multiple measurements are taken to ensure the right fit for your custom window treatments. As houses and buildings settle, so do the window frames in their walls. To ensure a custom fit, we measure and re-measure your windows to confirm width, height and depth measurements. Given the desired look, space, window type and wall structure, we advise you on the most effective and visually appealing mounting options. The Budget Blinds team instructs you in the proper use, care and safety features of your custom window treatments to ensure they remain looking great and functioning smoothly throughout their lifetime. And, once your custom window treatments have been made to spec and delivered, our professional installation team will ensure they are mounted properly and with minimum disruption for you and your family or business.
