Did you know that every window in your home is unique? Very slight imperfections in installation, molding, framing and even time which can create small flaws that your eye is unable to detect. Even if you think all of your windows are standard, trust your tape measure (a steel one, of course) when you make the decision for new or different window treatments. We pride ourselves at Blindsgalore, in giving you many choices to discover truly “custom window treatments.” You will never be disappointed as when those “other big box or online stores” promise you custom window treatments but you really get crooked blinds or shades. Don’t be fooled into thinking that custom means “cut down” as cut down shades are just a big roll of mass produced window treatments that are “cut down” from a big roll of material to your specifications, with no attention to the small discrepancies in each window. We believe that every window in your home is special and deserves the smoothest, sleekest and most inviting window covering.
A custom made blind or shade is just like your favorite pair of jeans which fit you at every important spot like a glove; are snug and comfy; never wrinkle or lose their shape; always in style and in your favorite color. Your custom window treatments become a personality in your home, accenting your style or softening the design. Just as you love how those jeans look on you, your windows deserve an equal amount of attention and care. Not only do the windows vary in size, but the rooms in your house demand different functions for light control, privacy, decoration, ease of use, and temperature control. We make it easy here to help you along the way with measuring videos, style guides, free samples and our “build a blind” visualizer to bring your window ideas to life. Our design experts are here everyday to chat or talk directly with you to answer all of your questions. We have been selling custom window treatments online (the first in 1998) for over 22 years. If we don’t have the answers, we will find it out for you.
Handcrafted Window Treatments
At Blindsgalore, we have made it our mission to show you how to find the best fit for every window. First of all, each window treatment is handcrafted just for you and your windows. I am always amazed in our technological age where so many things are massed produced on an assembly line, that custom made window blinds are still individually created for each window, hand-sewn when needed and crafted to the exact size you require, in the color and fabric you choose with all the other details you need. When you send us your measurements, you can be assured that the blind or shade is made in a workroom solely for each particular window to ensure that the shade slips into the window for an inside mount or covers your window frame beautifully, for an outside mount. Your window covering will not be too short or too long, will not fray at the edges and will not be uneven or clunky or misshapen. Just as Goldilocks, admonishes: “just right,” which can only happen with a custom made window covering is delivered to your front door.
Style and Colors Galore
Once the measurements are taken, each window then enters an amazing customization process. Foremost, is deciding what style or type of blind do you need which is a personal issue of taste and design. You need to choose the exact window treatment you like and how that complements your goals of function and the ultimate look you desire. We can solve any problem and make every kind of window treatment available, from the minimal Roller and Cell Shade to classic Wood Blinds to beautiful Roman Shades to Skylight Blinds, Verticals, Solars, Drapery, Shutters, Outdoor Shades and even Awnings and Sail Shades. You can even print anything you want on our special
“Make Your Own Shade” -a logo, a personal photo or design or your favorite quote or saying. Color and materials go hand in hand with the decision of type of blind and our colors are limitless from all the popular neutral shades of white, taupe, ivory and gray to all the shades in the rainbow-bold and bright to soft and serene. Along with color, choose a material selection which run from organic bamboos, reeds and other woven textiles to wood or faux wood to vinyl or to a plain or printed fabric in stripes, lively patterns or trendy geometric shapes. We offer 15 free samples as we know you will make a better decision when you can see and feel the textures and match the color to what you envision in your home décor.
After you have made the decision on style of blind, color and fabric, more selections make a truly unique window covering. Some of the choices that you might need to consider are: what type of light filtering do you require- blackout for sleeping or movie streaming or sheer or semi-sheer for lightness. Do you want opaque or semi-opaque for privacy. We always suggest going cordless for safety and motorization is the most popular for ease and for pairing with your smart devices. Hardware choices, valances and headrails are a few other options available to you. Each type of window treatment has its own specifications of choices, but don’t fret as we take you seamlessly through these decisions and our design experts are always on call to help you with design, function and any and all questions, big and little. Our design team has an incredible depth of knowledge about this very special niche of window coverings. With 20+ years of “know-how” of selling online, we know how to guide you to the perfect choice.
