Blinds

How could I forget to add that yesterday I purchased all the blinds for the house (except for the morning room)? We have 20 windows. This is why I didn't add any extra windows (didn't want to cover them, LOL). I went with the supplier that provides for Ryan. He really had the best rate for what I was looking for. I am VERY particular about the valance on my blinds. It only takes half down to order them but I took care of the full amount. That way I can budget what I have left for towels, linen, etc.

The morning room will either get cellular shades or roman shades. I'm not sure yet. I have to figure out the color scheme first for that room. He will put paper shades on these windows for free (which he should with the money that I am spending). I really can't complain because in my last house I spent the same on blinds and my house was smaller.

  1. Nice! Our one big moving in set up tragedy was that almost all (except for 2) of the blinds we ordered didn't fit! We have someone from Lowe's out at our place now measuring so we can order some more and return the JCP ones! The good news is that when I saw them, some I didn't like, so it all worked out :-) Good luck with your blinds!!

    1. Oh My! That is a tragedy! Oh well, that is what paper shades are for. They will be installed after the painter gets done.

      Hopefully, closing takes place early in the week as planned. Happy Unpacking!

  2. I'm sure it's area specific but did you mention the company name you used for blinds? We were looking at going through Lowes or Home Depot and just paying the $118 for them to come out measure and then install them. I'm thinking it would be a half day job to install all those blinds and time is something I won't have a lot of in the first few weeks of moving in, unpacking, getting settled and other misc. projects.

    1. I don't even know the name of his company. I just got his name and number from the SR. Sorry! I wasn't out there when he came to measure.

  3. I have been thinking about blinds and window coverings but there are so many options I really want plantation shutters in the morning room and roman shades on the front... I think :)

  4. I like roman shades but I would be worried about how the back side looked if they were placed in the front.

  5. I have gone with good 'ol sheers are curtains. Blinds have been a royal pain in the past. So far so fabulous.

  7. Thanks for this blog. Those questions on window blinds are bugging me too. I have broken blinds and I want to fix them myself before giving up to buying a new one.
