Blinds Customer Home Decor Blinds Match

 “ANOTHER great job from Blinds.com – Thank you!”

Recently, an excited customer shared pictures of his successfully installed mini blinds and sun shades, and we think there couldn’t have been a better pairing!

Brett ordered aluminum blinds for his garage and a Coolaroo sun shade for his gazebo, both of which add the finishing touch to their respectful rooms.

We love the way the window treatments add to Brett’s home decor without overpowering the design elements already present.

“Blinds.com Coolaroos installed in our Gazebo bar in the yard, when these are pulled down they not only keep the sun out but they EASILY DROP the temperature inside/under the Gazebo by about ten degrees .”
