Daughter loves themReally Really look good. I had priced these same mini blinds at a local store and the price was $300 more. Needless to say, I got a better deal with blinds.com , Also, I had a problem with one of the blinds after I got it hung, no problem, called them up, and they got to work that day to send me a replacement, no questions asked. That is awesome service. I will definitly recommend them.October 6, 2009
Very SatisfiedExcellent value and quality. Recommend to anyone.December 16, 2008
Ready for the Holidays!We were having family over for the Thanksgiving Holiday and wanted new shades to cover our 100" picture window and two side flankers. The large picture window had been a challenge we had not figured out in the three years since we had moved into our new home. With ease - it was purchased off your web site. Prior to ordering we asked for eight sample colors and they came immediately. The samples allowed us to pick the perfect color!Thanks for the great shades!December 6, 2006
When I logged into the website, I just wrung my hands. SO many to choose from! What do I do? What do I do! It seemed almost overwhelming, but then I spotted exactly the thing I needed. The questions were clear and explanatory. I ran to and from the window, measuring like mad, typing it in, running back to measure again. (I almost got the width and length reversed.) Then, color? Stopped me in my tracks. Color? I always thought they were white. But nooooo. All those colors. That took me longer than measuring! I decided and then, with a shaky hand, hit enter.I was committed. All I could do was wait. After 24 hours I was watching the road for the delivery truck. After two days I was pacing. What if they forgot me? What if I did it wrong? What if they are just laughing hysterically at my attempts? I waited. Naturally, the blinds arrived while I was out, but much earlier than expected. They are absolutely beautiful, absolutely perfect in size and color! And the directions, for someone as mechanically challenged as I am, were great. (Pictures help.) To make a long story short (too late now, I guess) you did GOOD! Thank you!September 8, 2006
excellent service!I ordered my blinds on line but was a bit skeptical about the service I could expect. What a suprise! My blinds arrived on time. In all there were 7 blinds. One had a flaw, it would only turn one way. So I called the 800 number. With one option I was talking to a LIVE person!! She immediately sent me another one. did not have to return the first one. Well, the replacement was damaged in shipping. Called 800 again talked to a LIVE person. third blind sent right out. no charge. did not have to return the other two. Will I use you again when I redo the bedrooms? Oh, YES. I have told anyone who will listen what wonderful service you provide. You can buy blinds anywhere, you can't buy service. It is what a company is made of. Thanks for everything.October 4, 2007
Overall Great BlindsI've only purchased the 1" Aluminum mini blinds, but they've been so beautiful in my home thus far. We did have to return one which was damaged in shipping, but the replacement item was incorrect (pull string was on wrong side). This blind was also slightly bent, but we can live with it because our fabric topper covers the damage. It is extremely heavy to raise (even with two headers), but it's also made for an extra wide sliding glass door. Overall......we're thrilled with our purchases from Blinds. Com!December 11, 2006
Love the blinds in my new apartmentI couldn't find the perfect size blinds with my new apartment, but these fit perfect. It was so easy to order the blinds. They came labeled with each box for which window it was made for. AWESOME JOB BLINDS.COM!! I will recommend you guys to all my friends. Hi to all my friends in Charlotte, NC!! :)August 3, 2007
Looks great!The blind fit perfectly and looks great. Only problem was that a part was missing, but it didn't keep me from hanging the blind immediately. I now have that part which was delivered quickly.July 13, 2007
Good product with good supporting informationI like the fact that these blinds come taylor fit lengthwise to the required window opening. Blinds purchased from Home improvement stores require a tedius process of disassembly and reassembly after removing slats. That is such a pain that I have at times left the excess in place. These Blinds.com blinds were sized excellent in width and length.I also value the web information regarding detailed dimensions for installation. One of my blinds needs to fit in a recessed window cavity in a custom pocket door. A very unusual installation requirement. The information provided on the website allowed me to detrmine that most blinds would not fit the available depth but one or two models would. I made my selection based on the web information and the result is great.These blinds are used in a windowed home office built as part of a painstakingly (and expensively) finished basement with premium materials, fit and finish throughout. They fit in well at a very reasonable cost.I have recommended this site to frinedsNovember 18, 2006
Excellent valueThis product is comparable to the blind I bought it to replace but a much better value. The window is wide and the last blind (purchased special order from a home improvement store) was heavy and stopped working after 2 months. It was the same price.The Blinds.com blind is lighter, was easier to install and both the open/close and light/dark mechanisms work smoothly. I am also very impressed with the perfect fit.From a customer service perspective the website is easy to use and the blind is exactly as ordered! I got the blind in less than a week and a follow up email with detailed installation instructions. I will use blinds.com for all of my blind purchases in the future!April 2, 2007
Good Value and Price, But...I recently moved into a new loft with 10 windows (4ft by 10ft tall) and while I loved the view, it proved to be quite toasty with the sun. Looking around, custom blinds were going to cost me a fortune. I had put off ordering at local stores and starting searching online when I found Blinds.com. After my first order I couldn't believe the value for such a low cost. These basic blinds are perfect for my windows and were 75% off what I would pay in the store. I started with only ordering a few and then added more over time.I will say, however, that while they are great blinds for the price and the shipping speed was amazing, my second batch arrived with one of the blinds strings cut. The third order arrived with one of the railing horribly bent (the shipping box showed no damage so it would have occurred prior to shipping). I was able to salvage the mishaps but after two orders with issues I'm hoping my last order to complete the wall of windows will arrive without any problems.May 26, 2009
Great product and service!I was very impressed with blinds.com: my order arrived incredibly fast (4 days after I've ordered online!), the blinds were the right size, they looked great, and the installation was easy.I particularly liked the possibility to order blinds for any width x length combination (of course, in normal limits). Before ordering from blinds.com, I've wasted lots of time in normal brick and mortar stores, that, unfortunately, sell only standard sizes ...November 18, 2007
I used google to do a lot of comparison shopping for my new apartment here in nyc. I am on a high flooir in a corner unit, so I have lots of windows and very bright light which makes the apt very hot. I bought cheap vinyl blinds from a local shop for 5 dollars ea. I have decided to replace all of those from blinds.com. The aluminum blinds keep out the sunlight more effectively and blinds.com's prices are the best on the web.September 24, 2006
Happy Mini Blind CustomerThe blinds arrived in a reasonable time, everything was as expected, and the price was right. They installed and fit as they should----could not ask for more----Thanks for the good work. As for changing anything, it looks to me that you are doing just fine---others could take a lesson or two from you-----DanF.March 29, 2007
Good Instructions for Taking MeasurementsThe guide to assist the buyer to measure correctly was very helpful. When I received the blinds they slipped easily into the window after the hardware was installed. I think the most difficult part was getting the blinds out of the packaging which was excellent to ensure no damage during shipping.June 8, 2008
Excellent Product, Pricing & ServiceThe product is excellent, the price is better than others I've found on the internet and the service is immediate. We did have blinds delivered damaged and blinds.com sent a replacement out promptly. I would, and have, recommended blinds.comSeptember 25, 2007
Great Purchasing ExperienceBe sure to read the measuring instructions on the website. They are a critical step in ensuring a good installation and fit. It was tempting to skip them - I did at first - then went back - read them - remeasured - and my original measurements were all wrong.Delivery was much faster than I would have expected.Installation was a breeze.I really like that if you have a double set of windows, they let you buy one header rail but have two separate blinds, one for each window. This is much better than I used to have - one very long blind - which I bought elsewhere, and it never worked. It would not go up and down readily and got stuck.Quality is good. Installation instructions clear and helpful.Pricing seems fine.I was very happy with my purchase, and I think it was a much better experience than if I had tried to do the measuring on my own, then go out to a store to try and find something to fit. I would definitely buy again from Blinds.comJanuary 2, 2010
Great Purchase!Blinds arrived pretty soon after order was sent out online. Great service and easy installation. Good Price.October 1, 2007
