I went to visit their store and it looked nice, though I thought the place was empty before someone came out from the back room to help me. Thank god, because I really started to get a little nervous with all the shade styles to choose from. I explained to the guy what I was looking for, something to block out most of the light, but not completely, because mom doesn't like total darkness or leaving lights on too much. Complicated, I know. He understood and gave me a couple good options before we decided that faux wood blinds would be the best solution, letting her adjust the light a bit and shut out when she wanted. I picked a cherry wood finish that I knew she'd like and took their recommendation for the vane size. There were 2 wide windows in the bedroom, so I had them come with me to measure when my mom wasn't home and then scheduled the installation about 3 weeks later when the blinds arrived. They were installed a few days before her birthday and of course the surprise was impossible to keep with my sister already having brought some new furniture and decorative things, but they both loved the blinds I picked.
