When you head over to your parents’ house for a home-cooked
meal, do you notice that the old blinds in your childhood home are starting to
look a little, er, yellow? Has your wife been hinting that it’s time to replace
the old, saggy blinds that came with the house? If you love your mother or wife,
treat her to a gift that keeps on giving for the same price as a bouquet of
flowers. Maybe less.

Mom deserves the best, so this year, instead of that grocery
store cake and dozen roses, Give her a unique, unusual gift, one that she won’t
expect. Giving her new window treatments will make you a hero in her eyes, and
who doesn’t want to be the hero? When she’s bragging to her friends – who, by
the way, received vacuum cleaners this year – that her husband or son bought
her new blinds… trust me, Hero-Status reached.

did not install these myself. But the contractor who did was equally impressed
with the quality. These do a great job of insulating drafts from the window."

"We have a very
old home with different size windows and low ceilings, we needed a custom,
clean and bright window treatment that would enhance the small rooms charm.
These blinds were perfectly made and easy to install. Service and shipping was
fast and friendly.The quality is very good although I wish they had painted the
side of the slats and had more elegant looking hold down brackets. We need to
use them for child safety. Buy with confidence."
