Budget blinds products and services
Budget Blinds was founded in 1992 in California and has become one of the largest window covering franchises in the USA with more than 670 outlets in 47 states. They open an average of 20 new franchise stores each month in America and hope to achieve 50% of the market share by 2010.
Budget Blinds serves businesses as well as homes, which gives it a wider market than most. They offer window treatments from the leading manufacturers such as Hunter Douglas and Norman Shutters as well as offering their own lines Signature and Select.
Budget Blinds provide free estimates and a personal consultation service, whereby a member if their team will visit your home or office and advise you on colors and styles. When you have made your decision, the adviser will take all the measurements and install the blinds when they are ready.
Budget Blinds offers a wide range of products and services at incredibly competitive prices. All the major window coverings are available including: wood blinds, shutters, specialty blinds and valances. They also do a line in specialty blinds, so it’s a good place to look if you’re after something unusual (such as a circular window covering).
The easiest way to view their products range is to visit their website. Besides all the usual pages (Product Showroom, Things to Consider, etc.) you’ll also find some more unexpected pages. Their Tips from the Experts section is a good example and gives plenty of suggestions about what colors to use for certain rooms and the latest fashion trends. However, it’s their pricing which really drives customers to the website and they claim that you can save as much as 30% compared with other retailers (and more if you shop online).
