My husband I were so excited to move into our very first home together. We had been house hunting for almost an entire year before we found the house that fit us. The living room is large and open, with beautiful picture windows that make up almost the entire west facing wall. The windows provided such an open and airy atmosphere, which we absolutely loved. It became quite clear early on, however, that the afternoon sun would heat our house up like an oven! It was also nearly impossible to look in that general direction during the afternoon or early evening hours, because we would get blinded by the sun! We began searching for affordable, but quality, blinds to fix our window problem and quickly found Denise with Budget Blinds. She came to our home with an enormous assortment of samples for blinds in every price range and style. It could have been quite overwhelming, but she helped us decide which ones would accent the current style in our home. She also advised us on the benefits of window tinting, in order to save our carpet and furniture. The blinds were delivered in a timely fashion and they were professionally installed on a Saturday, which was greatly appreciated! We selected beautiful 2'' wood blinds that match our current woodwork perfectly it really couldnt be any more perfect! We were afraid that the blinds would detract from the whole look of the living room, when in reality, they have added so mush more! Perhaps the most amazing experience that we had with Budget Blinds, however, came after I innocently left our bedroom window open. Our slightly neurotic Border Collie decided that she would rather be indoors with the cat, than outside by herself, so she plowed through not only the screen, but our brand-new wood blinds, too! There were beautiful wood splinters covering our bedroom floor. I called Budget Blinds to tell them the situation and to find out if we could purchase several replacement slats to remedy the situation. To our disbelief, Budget Blinds arranged for the new slates and even had someone come replace them for us at no additional charge. We were impressed before, but that showed us that you have a truly outstanding organization. Thank you for your good work, quality products, and exemplary customer service. We plan to recommend you to all of our friends!
