THE ROLLER SHADES ARRIVED!! I've wanted to get rid of these old drapes that came with the condo a year and a half ago. I've thought about different blinds, shutters and shades, and finally settled on roller shades. They came today and installed them, and I couldn't be happier! Now I can block the view from the big building looking into my bedroom and bath, yet still keep the beautiful city-scape of downtown. (I've included some before and after pics.) I started reading some Yelp reviews, and saw some bad reviews on a company that advertises a lot on TV. I saw good reviews of Budget Blinds, so I called and made an appointment for them to visit my condo. It is a family business. Mom and another lady, came with samples, took measurements, and I placed the order. A few weeks later, they called to tell me the order had arrived. Son-in-law Matt did the install and was excellent! Matt was very courteous, respectful and professional.
I am a new resident in Honolulu and purchased a new condo here in December. First order of business was getting some new window treatments. I was promptly greeted by the staff there and Elspeth visited my condo shortly thereafter. After sharing some great products and suggestions, I settled on my final look. In large part due to Elspeth and her can-do attitude, gracious disposition and willingness to try something new. Matt and Elspeth made a follow up visit and ensured the work was done accurately with a focus on quality. You will find them very accommodating and wonderful to work with. Elspeth and Matt ensured my deadlines were met and kept and ensured I was pleased with the final product, which I was. The enhancements and the window treatments complete the room. I must also add the tech that installed the blinds was professional, orderly and efficient. I would highly recommend Budget Blinds, but moreover Elspeth and Matt.
Without any hesitation, I would highly recommend John and Elspeth to anyone and everyone who requires assistance in getting the best deal for window treatments. I had been wanting motorized blinds for years and suddenly discovered an advertisement through Costco. Although we were facing a tight deadline between the end of the sale date and when John or Elspeth could come to measure our windows and then place the order in time, they went out of their way to adjust their schedules (and working late into the night) to expedite the paperwork to ensure that we, the customer, would get every benefit available. The motorized shades work perfectly and we enjoy the wonderful view which had previously been hidden by our drapes because "it was too humbug to draw the drapes every day from each side of the window". We now just push a button and silently think of, and thank profusely, John and Elspeth for their able assistance.
