Quent Blodgett – Budget Blinds of Boise, ID

For a large kitchen that needed some color and softness, Quent Blodgett paid careful attention to fabric selection, style and size to make sure that the valance worked in the space and complemented the entire room.

Dell and Susan Cannon, Budget Blinds of Southwest Lubbock, TX

For a young couple building their first home, every detail mattered.  The wife is a photographer, so color selection was critical and she was meticulous about the paint colors and finishes throughout the house.  “The gentle curve of the relaxed Roman shades softens all of the hard lines in the kitchen,” said Susan Cannon, “while giving the client the versatility, privacy and light control she needed.

Michael Schilling of Michael Schilling Designs uses Budget Blinds for most of his client renovation projects. But this project was a special case, as it was Schilling’s own home. “Michael had his own vision for the room and the fabrics to be used for his draperies,” said Brett Jones. “The challenge was to find a way to install operable drapery panels where much of the space for the hardware and stack back was already occupied by a motorized solar shade.”

“This project had plenty of challenges, “said Karen Glass. “There’s a million-dollar view and the client wanted draperies, but the ceiling and roof line angled in, which limited the space for stack back. The higher you went, the narrower the working space became. But by installing a mitered, 2 ½” wood rod just above the frame, we found the right mix of function while retaining much of the view.”

Elaine Trotter – Budget Blinds of Brandon, FL

For a family room that faced a golf course and pool-area lanai, privacy was a primary concern. The large arched window, which had previously been untreated, produced some afternoon glare, which the client wanted addressed without completely covering the window. “The client’s style in the rest of the house is somewhat formal,” said Trotter. “So we designed a swag treatment featuring ornate medallions to complement the adjoining rooms.”

Krista Guagenti – Budget Blinds of Worthington, OH

“This space needed some pizzazz,” said Krista Guagenti, “something to distract the eye away from the traditional woodwork abundant throughout this home.” The client loves an updated take on classic/baroque intricacies, so Guagenti decided to incorporate aspects of the Italian mirror into the window treatment design concept, while also adding color and architectural interest.

“Because it was important not to obstruct the wooded view from the bay windows, we designed upholstered cornices covered in a striking gray and yellow ikat.” Roman shades in a rich cream texture were installed under the cornices for privacy and light control.

Karen Pemberton – Budget Blinds of Southeast Toronto, ON

Budget Blinds of Southeast Toronto partnered with Karen Sealy of Sealy Design to create a home that had a laid-back, seaside feel. Light-filtering roller shades in a look that mimics grasscloth are layered under patterned linen draperies that feature sand and sea-glass hues.
