If you want the smoothest & most efficient experience buying & installing shutters I would highly recommend working with Linda Allen & Skandia Window Fashions. My shutters were purchased through her in 2004 and are still holding up great. The plastic coating on the magnets that hold the frame to the shelf that are in the sun for long periods of the day have a tendency to dry out & crack. I needed to replace 6 of the 48 in 2015 and now 6 more this month 2019. She made this happen after owning them for 14 years. One of the best customer home repair experiences we have dealt with in 21 years living here.

Budget Blinds of Rancho Penasquitos is the real deal. We wouldn't hesitate to call them again should we have a problem window in need of covering / sun blocking.

We absolutely LOVE our Lutron shades way more than we expected! And although there were issues with the function on a couple of the shades, Trent ensured that Lutron remade all 5 rollers. And now that they're all reinstalled, we're extremely happy we took his advice on waiting to cover the rest of our windows because he was 100% right when he told us "once you get the Lutrons in here you're gonna wish you had more."

Linda has been great! We have really enjoyed working with her. She has made our house look beautiful. Can't wait for our drapes and blinds to come in. Shutters look perfect! Would recommend her to everyone!

Earlier this year I decided to get shutters for a window that had been left our off of the original order when we moved into a new house 7 years ago. I shopped around (the original vendor went out of business), and Budget Blinds had the best price. The service was even better - Trent did what he said he was going to do!

A few moths later the kids broke the swivels on some blinds not covering the window Budget shuttered. I looked around - handymen, other blinds companies - and finally remembered to call Budget. Trent offered to do for free what others either couldn't do or were prepared to gouge me for.

I wouldn't use any other company in the future and highly recommend Budget Blinds based on these two limited but telling experiences.

As a customer I had a few issues after getting the blind job done with this company and wrote a review but realized finally after talking to the Owner (Linda) that there was a miss-communication between us. She was so nice to come over and wanted to resolve the issue and now that is in the process. I really appreciate her attitude toward customer satisfaction.

Linda Allen is fantastic to work with! So sweet!! I am in the Real Estate industry (new home sales and resale) and not only have used her for my own home, but have recommended her to many, many clients (and friends). When needing window treatments for my home, I was able to speak with Linda over the phone about what I was interested in (had a vague idea in mind as far as color and material) and then conveniently made an appointment for a few days later. Linda came over to view the windows/French door I needed to replace the coverings for and understood exactly what I was trying to convey as far as my needs went. Even though I wasn't sure about exactly what I wanted, she spent a lot of time going over different products and colors that matched my home color scheme. Pricing was incredibly affordable as well. Once the products arrived, Bobby (the installer) came out to take down the old sheer curtains/rods and hang the three new pieces. He arrived on time and took a great deal of time and care in hanging the new, beautiful pieces. Linda followed up with me shortly after to make sure I was happy with the product/installation. I am so happy with my new window and door coverings and continue to refer my friends and clients to Linda.

This was my first experience buying blinds for a newly remodeled home and it was a bit overwhelming. Linda, however, was able to narrow down what I was looking for and offer suggestions within my budget. She was so friendly, patient and professional. Within an hour, I was able to pick out exactly what I wanted! The process was painless. I was on a timeline to get the blinds in by my move-in date and they were installed with 2 days to spare. Trent was awesome. Friendly, professional and he had the blinds installed in no time.

Thank you Linda!!!!

We are so happy with our blinds and draperies. Your recommendations and process were the best. You really made this entire process very easy. Because we did every window in our home, +30 windows and a large sliding door, it was a big investment for us. If we ever have to do this again we will definitely give you a call. Folks I would highly recommend Linda for your needs.

Linda before I forget, thank a Trent for us for his professionalism and quality of work why the installation...

Linda Allen came out in one day and measured our windows for pleated black-out blinds. We were lucky that she had a fabric that matched our wall color. The blinds were installed two weeks later and they are perfect! The installer was friendly and efficient! Give them a try for your window treatment needs!

Iness W.



Had a great experience with Linda and Trent. Linda came twice to offer options and take measurements. Both times she was super friendly with great customer service. She ordered and 3 weeks later Trent arrived to install. He did a great job and all the shutters fit perfectly.

Chriso P.



100% recommend Linda and Budget Blinds. Linda made the process very easy. We picked out three types of window coverings and they were installed in about 3 weeks. 100% satisfied with the end result and would highly recommend to anyone.

Thank you Linda!

I'm writing this after years of being VERY happy with our blinds. Linda was such a pleasure to work with. Had just moved into our house, no idea what we wanted, she helped narrow down the choices that were best for each room and made it so easy. The first batch of blinds are 12 years old, second round 10 years, then did a final group about 8 years ago. Install was very convenient, very well done and everything left so clean. The product is very well made and has stood up to it's promises, in the worst of San Diego heat, they make the rooms much cooler. They have even held up to the kids constant use.

Recently we had a few that needed to be repaired. I contacted Linda, she took care of everything, it was such a smooth process.

I highly recommend Linda and her crew as well as their products!

I am so pleased with the quality customer service that i received at Budget Blinds, from Linda who came to measure and assist me with selection to Trent who came to install my blinds. Linda is very friendly and professional and listened to my thoughts before giving me excellent helpful advice. Trent is a super nice friendly guy who came on time and installed my blinds quickly. I am very pleased with reasonable prices also. I will be calling on them again to have more window treatments done. I recommend them highly.

I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to home decorating so meeting with Linda was an excellent experience. I know what I didn't like, and she helped me narrow my choices by asking me specific questions on my needs and lifestyle. A lot of times, I feel that salespeople are trying to sell me on the most expensive option, but Linda was not that way. She offered me several selections, the pros and cons of each one, and really made me think of how the color and choices would affect the overall look and feel of my home. I wish I had known about them when I did the treatments on my old home, but thankfully, they installed the covering on my new house and I couldn't be happier!

I had online quotes from other vendors, but not only were their prices the most reasonable, but what I respected most was their customer service. A section of my house was waiting for cabinets to be installed before the blinds could be put in, and Linda followed up to ensure we were still on track. Even when I missed an appointment (still feel horrible about that) my husband said she was very gracious and accommodating with my mistake.

When Trent came to install, he completed the whole house himself within 3 hours! He was clean and efficient and I was in shock at how well they were installed in such a short time frame! I highly recommend them for any window treatment needs. They definitely know what they are doing.

We had a GREAT experience working with Linda, Trent, and the Budget Blinds team. The quote and consultation were quick, and the advice we were given was just so much better than the other companies we talked with. Linda asked about our budget and aesthetic, short and long-term plans, and helped us find the right style that also worked with our price range. Other companies tried to push the highest-price brands and styles, often hiding the price difference ("oh, the 2" and 2.5" are basically the same price"...until you see the bill!!), but Budget was clear throughout and helped us evaluate what we'd truly want in each room. And their prices are the best!

But the thing that has impressed me most is seeing our blinds now that they're installed. We went with a mix of HunterDouglas and Budget's signature line, and they look so good! It changes the look of the house in such a positive way. We are so happy.

Linda was friendly, professional and very helpful with design ideas. My new bamboo shades arrived on time and there was no problem at all with the installation. Everything went well and I highly recommend Linda with Budget Blinds.

Danne G.



To Linda & Trent, We are simply thrilled by the incredible service, installation and appearance of our new house full of shutters. We can't thank you enough. They keep our house so cool, and were an excellent investment.

Budget Blinds by Linda and Trent were simply the Best! I highly recommend them with my 5-Star Endorsement, with no Exceptions.
