For the first few months in our home, you could have called us the naked neighbors. We waited to invest in blinds for the house until we could find something reasonably priced, along with something we could both agree on.
I scoured the internet to find the best deals and of course asked for opinions on Facebook. Everyone seems to have a blinds person. I ended up going with Blinds.com. This is not a sponsored post by any means – just sharing another step in turning our house into a home! I found their site user-friendly and was able to order a bajillion samples of various shades of white and ivory to help match our trim.
The process of ordering blinds from Blinds.com is pretty simple. Measure the window. Then double and triple check your measurements. Once you place the order, quadruple check your measurements are in the correct boxes. Once our blinds arrived, it was super easy to install with a power drill (I left that up to Cody).
We ended up with cordless top down/bottom up blinds for our main floor windows (kitchen, living room) and ended up with top down/bottom up with cords for upstairs in the color white dove, which matched our trim perfectly. Keeping our budget in mind, we had to decide which floor needed the cordless blinds more. I wish we could have done it for every room, but for now I’m happy we kept the seamless look for the main floor.
I haven’t committed to curtains yet for any room. I’m too indecisive at the moment for any bedroom to get curtains, and I feel like they are a big commitment. So at the moment, we have bare-ish windows.
What’s your blinds story? Did you forgo yours for curtains, did you do both, or do you prefer another style of window coverings? Let me know in the comments below.
Here are a few options I’ve been mulling over for the space:
