Budget Blinds Serving

* is required.


This is the third time working with Theresa. She is so helpful, especially about giving ideas I hadn't thought about. She suggested shutters for the front of my house and I love the look.

- Urbandale, IA

Every experience with Budget Blinds was very professional and both times the employees came to my home they were on time and prepared. I have already had several people comment on how great the panel track looks and on the wood blinds as well. We tell them how much we love them and recommend Budget Blinds every time. After getting the quote from Budget Blinds we checked online at Blinds.com and Menards for similar products. There were window coverings out there for less cost, but they were not as high a quality as the ones we purchased from Budget Blinds and we would have had to install them ourselves. In a couple of instances, Budget Blinds was less expensive even with installation than what we found online.

- Polk City, Iowa January 2012

Budgets Blinds did an amazing job. I was very happy with how they helped me pick out the best blinds for my rooms. The installation was very smooth until they tried to install a blind in a window about 8 feet above my front door. They did not have the appropriate equipment to get it up there safely, so did whatever it took, which meant renting scaffolding, to get it installed. They arranged their schedules to make sure the job was completed the same day. They were very nice, professional, and a delight to work with. While they had the scaffolding they even offered to dust off the ledge above my front door! I would tell anybody how much I enjoy my blinds and tell them if they ever need blinds to consult Budget Blinds, they had been recommended by so many people that I only consulted with them and have been extremely happy! >

I was very impressed with the whole process. I was shocked at how quickly my roman shades were installed and it's wonderful that you guys come out and do the installation. I definitely think Budget Blinds was worth my time and the investment as I had a few other companies come and give me quotes and they were unwilling to listen to my needs and wants and just wanted to 'SELL' me something. Theresa had great ideas, but she also understood what I was trying to accomplish. She was wonderful!

- Ankeny, Iowa April 2010

It was a pleasure working with Theresa, et al.from consult appointment to installation. It was well worth our investment. Everyone who comes into our new home immediately comments on all of the window coverings. When coming into the entry way - the immediate view reminds me of a picture in a Better Homes & Gardens magazine. We always let them know we purchased them from Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines and what a pleasant experience it was.

- Urbandale, Iowa November 2011

Good job! You showed up on time and did the work very well. I have already recommended Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines to others. I am a repeat customer and I didn't check into other dealers because I was pleased with my Budget Blinds experience from before.

- West Des Moines, IA

I bought from Budget Blinds because I felt comfortable with you (easy to talk to, fun to be around, extremely knowledgeable, very polite) your selection was outstanding and your prices were within my budget. If I had it to do all over again I wouldn't change a thing!

- Waukee, IA

You showed up in a timely manner and did the work quickly but with accuracy. Definitely worth the investment! We were extremely satisfied and would call Budget Blinds again in a heartbeat!

- Grimes, IA

I LOVE my blinds! Our home is much cooler and they look really great! Service gets an A+. I would (and have) recommended Budget Blinds to my friends. Thanks!

- Johnston, Iowa

I just recently bought some window treatments for my living room and didn't think to use Budget Blinds. I had to make several trips to West Des Moines from Ankeny and then also had to have appointments set up to measure and install the product. Not as easy as Budget Blinds. I also appreciated the advice I received from you!

- Ankeny, IA

Excellent - very professional, on time and outstanding work in such a short amount of time. 5 windows in just over an hour.I would say if you want quality work and ease of shopping - Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines is the way to go. Having an expert come to your home with samples and ideas is without a doubt the best way to do it. Plus having all the measuring, ordering, installing done professionally is well worth it.

- Chariton, Iowa

We were pleased with the fact that Budget Blinds appeared promptly at the appointed time and were very well prepared with extra pieces that might be needed and all necessary equipment to do the job. No time was wasted. We are so pleased with the transformation that the lovely window treatments helped us achieve.

- Urbandale, Ia

She knew the product line very well. I was interested in a product for my door, Theresa made suggestions and I really liked her input. I looked at two other retailers and it came down to the product she suggested. I'm real happy and I'd tell anyone how satisfied I am"

- Urbandale, Iowa

There is really no comparison. You made it sooooo easy! From helping us choose the type of blind we needed, the fabric, the color and then the installation-I don't know how it could have been any easier and stress-free. And with all the services you provide, it was still less expensive than other estimates I obtained.

- Ankeny, IA April 2010

David and Budget Blinds of Des Moines, Iowa: I want to thank you very much for your service. The entire process was very smooth. It was of great convenience for you to come to my home for the initial consultation, window measurements, and installing the blinds. I really like the blinds! I would highly recommend Budget Blinds to anyone.

- Grimes, Iowa Fall 2011

The selections are great, the price was affordable, the quality is absolutely the best, warranty is good (hope we don't have a need to use it) and being able to make decisions from the home with Theresa's help was the BEST. We only had one other person come to provide suggestions and an estimate. There was no comparison. We were overwhelmed & didn't know what we wanted when she left. The price was more than we had indicated for our range as well. Budget Blinds has a wonderful approach, giving suggestions, but also allowing time for the customer to absorb & determine a good direction to go.

- Waukee, Iowa

First time I've used in-home consultation and I loved it! Theresa did a fantastic job identifying my style and then consulting on options based on what I selected without directing me what to buy. It was a great experience!

- West Des Moines, IA

"For me it was a matter of convenience. Theresa knows what she's doing and the prices seemed reasonable too. Budget Blinds did my office and my house with no problems. I would recommend her and I have before."

- Johnston, IA March 2008

You were prompt and efficient and you were worth my time and investment! I would say they were fair, honest, efficient, and helpful. My good friend recommended you, and she was so right. I just love it that you are family owned.

- Pleasant Hill, Iowa

I was very pleased with the entire experience. Theresa was knowledgeable with her product line and offered great suggestions. She was very prompt and thorough in her install as well. Theresa really knows her stuff and takes pride in her work-you can tell.

- West Des Moines

Price was a little more expensive than Home Depot or another do-it-yourself location but the selection made up for that. We were also excited that we didn't have to install them ourselves as we have never done that before and knew it would be a challenge. The in-home consult was great because my husband and I were able to schedule it on our own time. We could have Theresa give design advice and look at our physical space instead of trying to describe it to someone behind a counter at another store. She was also very flexible with our decision-making process, showed us various different options and let us take our time when making final decisions. I appreciated that because window treatments are a large investment and I didn't want to be rushed into making a decision without taking time to think about all of our options and financial status. >

- Ankeny, Iowa

The price was right. It was actually less than a major retailer in our area that carries blinds. Plus we didn't have to leave home to do it!

- Des Moines, IA

You were quick and efficient-and so helpful with the entire decision making process in the beginning. Its a bit overwhelming to do the entire house and you made it as painless as possible from the very first point of contact with you.

- Waukee, IA February 2010

The gentlemen were always on time, we would tell anyone about Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines! We didn't really look anywhere else, and we are very satisfied.

- Carlisle, Iowa

You were extremely prompt and even worked me into the schedule to get it done before Memorial Day. I get compliments all the time!!! I tell them they are great and tell them I got them at Budget Blinds.

- Waukee, IA

"Theresa was great! I had bought from another Budget Blinds before and knew I wanted to go with them again. She was very professional and I love the top-down,bottom-up blinds in my bedroom she suggested!"

- Greenfield, IA

I was very happy with the way Budget Blinds worked around my schedule. I was impressed with how smooth and easy it was to pick out what I wanted, and the explanation of each quality of shade. I decided to go with you that first night because the price was right. If you had been over my budget, I would have gone elsewhere, but both my husband and I said, “just do it”…..

- Van Meter, Iowa

I was very happy with the service I received from Budget Blinds! I really appreciated the design advice and personal service so I knew what would be the best choice for my home. I would totally recommend Budget Blinds as professional, prompt and knowledgeable about covering windows. Budget Blinds turned out to be a very good investment for me when my dog chewed a hole in my wood blind and I was able to take advantage of the one-time "no questions asked" guarantee and have my blind replaced for free!! Thanks Dave and Theresa!!!

- Ankeny, Iowa June 2009

You guys were great. You had a nice selection and your price beat the competition. I chose your company for several reasons. ~You were really nice and professional ~Competitive prices ~Excellent selection I would definitely recommend you to friends/family. I especially love the Roman shades in our Master Bedroom. My husband works nights, so the darkening shades are wonderful.

- Johnston, Iowa Fall 2011

Budget Blinds did every window in my house. Every blind looks beautiful, pricing was great and Budget Blinds provided very personable service. The owners of Budget Blinds, Theresa and Dave, personally came to my house and discussed my needs, took the measurements and personally installed my blinds. That is personal service that does not happen with any other company that I know of.

- West Des Moines, IA

I love the way the colors and the wood blinds match my house. Theresa did a great job suggesting what products suit my needs. I was surprised how fast the blinds came in and were installed as well. I have referred several people to Budget Blinds and would do it again.

- Clive, IA

Awesome workmanship. No messes and workers were pleasant and professional. Budget Blinds was definitely worth my time and investment. We built a brand new home and the last thing on our minds were window coverings. At the suggestion of a co-worker, I called Budget Blinds and was able to set up an appointment for a FREE in-home consultation. I was given a quote right on the spot and placed my order the following day. When we finish our basement, I will be giving Theresa and Dave a call back for more blinds.

- Ankeny, IA

Thank you so much for your prompt and very efficient service. I couldn't believe how quickly and smoothly the installation went! It literally took just a few minutes. I have had many compliments already and have happily recommended Budget Blinds. It was very easy to shop in my own home, especially with your very valuable input and guidance. Your instant measurement and cost estimate was also very impressive. We are thrilled to have discovered you and Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines!

- Des Moines, Iowa

The service was prompt, on schedule, good clean up after completion of the job. Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines was a little higher priced but quality and convenience was worth it. I received an advertisement as soon as I moved in my new home and that was convenient.

- Des Moines, Iowa May 2012

The blinds are great. I show them off to everyone and recommend they talk to Budget Blinds!

- Grimes, Iowa

I was not sure what to expect from a home consultation, because when I checked in stores there were always other customers and sometimes clerks were not sure of features, prices, sales, etc. So I was relieved that Theresa gave me the time and exact information that I needed,plus she was able to size-up my needs and the overall look of the rooms, which helped me immensely.

- Ankeny, Iowa

I was very pleased with the service provided and the efficiency of the time at my home. I would be happy to refer a friend to Budget Blinds and let them know I was very happy all around with the service, the product, and the pricing.

- West Des Moines, IA

The selection was great and lots more options than we had seen at Home Depot or any other location. Therersa and Dave were able to install the blinds when we were not home which was very helpful for our personal schedules. We would strongly recommend Budget Blinds. We love how they look in our home and as I said before, the selection was great!

- Ankeny, Iowa

Yes, I have had compliments on the blinds, and I am always happy to say they came from Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines. With the discounts and given correct measurements and installation, I did not feel that the price was beyond big-box stores, where a person is on his own to measure and make decisions.

- Ankeny, IA

I love the new shutters! I have already shown my friends as well as told them about my purchase. They ask who did them and I do not hesitate to tell them...Budget Blinds! The price is what sold me on your product. I had priced shutters at two other places and Budget Blinds was less!

- Waukee, Iowa

I was extremely pleased with the service, the product, and the detail of the blinds that were installed by Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines!

- Johnston, Iowa

I would recommend Budget Blinds to any friends that were thinking of adding or updating their window treatments. We were given a lot of good information and suggestions about the types of treatments, colors, and textures to complement the room and address the issues of light, privacy, and style that we wanted to achieve.

- Urbandale, Ia

Compared to other retailers, the in home consultation was very informative and very easy going. It was nice to have samples of all different types of window treatments to hold up next to my walls and trim and also feel the quality. I never felt rushed with Theresa and I never felt like she was talking down to me as I don't know much about window treatments. She was very respectful. I also had a retailer tell me to go out and 'do some of the work...as in go shopping for whatever fabric I wanted.' This was right after I told her I didn't have a clue what I was doing or what would work with my décor. Thankfully, Theresa came to the rescue and showed me something I would have NEVER picked out myself and I absolutely LOVE it!

- Ankeny, IA

We would more than recommend you. It was worth it for so many reasons. It is nice to actually have the samples in your house to put them up to the paint and wood trim to find a style and color that fits our house. At a store, you really have no idea what it is going to look like and have the potential to pick something that won't match or doesn't look right. Then you've spent a fortune and have to live with it! Totally worth it! We love the blinds and can't wait to have friends and family over to show off the new room with the beautiful blinds!

- Des Moines, Iowa

I am completely satisfied with all aspects of the work. I enjoyed working with Theresa and the final product exceeded my expectations.

- West Des Moines, Iowa

"I saw a coupon and then went on the internet and found Theresa and Budget Blinds. She was very professional and knew what she wanted to show me. I chose to buy from her because of the quality, selection, and the price was very comparable. There was a small mark on one of the wood blinds and Theresa replaced it without any questions. This is the first house I have ever had custom blinds in and it makes a big difference! I have recommended Budget Blinds several times."

- Waukee, IA

The sale price and warranty plus customer service were big factors in my choice.I would tell people about Budget Blinds of Greater Des Moines and give them your number.

- Urbandale, IA

We were very pleased with the installation and follow up by Budget Blinds. We would be certain to reccomend your company, and we appreciate that Budget Blinds will be there to service us for the life of the blinds.

- Altoona, Iowa

I would highly recommend Budget Blinds. Theresa was awesome to work with and very helpful. Not knowing what I wanted, Theresa was a great help and she offered ideas and suggestions, which I so much appreciated. The installers were on time and professional, they were in and out in no time. A co-worker recommended your company and products and I was thrilled with the price, product and service.
