ShadesEvery year, the DIY Network Blog Cabin asks fans to vote on the design features of a home to be renovated and then invites eligible viewers to enter for a chance to win the finished residence. This year’s Blog Cabin is a historic 1920s era bungalow that was remodeled and relocated to a location by a lake in the beautiful city of Winter Haven, Florida. Of course we wanted in on the action so Budget Blinds is happy to announce that we are the exclusive window coverings sponsor of the 2014 DIY Network Blog Cabin!

As the exclusive window coverings sponsor, we installed 46 Enlightened Style™ cellular shades in the home to contribute to its amazing renovation! Cellular shades were chosen because of their inherent ability to create a warm and inviting environment by gently filtering sunlight. They also help insulate a home so it’s cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Tandem™ cellular shades were used in the den. These innovative window treatments combine a front shade with an independently operated back liner that can be lowered to any desired length for enhanced versatility in light and privacy control.

We’d like to extend a big thanks to our franchisee Nelson McCullough of Budget Blinds serving Lakeland Highlands for rolling up his sleeves and measuring and installing the cellular shades. Naturally, he had a blast on-site stating, “It was a ton of fun working with the DIY team. It was like being part of a big family who were constantly laughing and joking with one another! We all came together and did a wonderful job with the renovation. The home and location are truly a sight to see!”

When asked what his main takeaways from the project were, Nelson said, “Working with a well-known network was a great experience and a privilege. It feels great to know that I was part of an amazing team that worked together to make the home renovation a complete success!”

Budget Blinds would also like to thank Custom Brands Group for donating the products used. Custom Brands Group has been a trusted manufacturing partner of ours for many years and we know the product will shine beautifully and enhance the home’s luxurious feel!
