When buying your new dream home is contingent upon selling an existing home, you’ll do whatever it takes to make that happen. The HGTV home-improvement series, Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers, follows real-life families who take that challenge with Jonathan and Drew Scott, the ever-popular Property Brothers. These families in transition place both the selling of their existing homes and the buying of a new home into the capable hands of Jonathan and Drew.
The Double Challenge
Jonathan and Drew Scott are uniquely qualified to handle the renovating, the selling and the buying. Drew is a real estate professional who knows the industry inside out and orchestrates the absolute best deals possible. Jonathan is a contractor, able to make renovations on both ends so selling price is maximized and the new home is customized to meet the family’s every need, on budget. Years of experience have made them the consummate pros and the makeovers are fascinating to watch.
To help bring the outgrown or “seasoned” homes up to top-dollar market standard, Budget Blinds®partnered with the Property Brothers on 10 of this season’s renovations to provide custom window coverings to enhance the beauty and value of each home. Custom layered window treatments work almost like magic in transforming uninspired rooms into possibilities.
The customized blinds and draperies installed in these two homes were provided by Budget Blinds’ long-time, trusted manufacturing partner, Springs Window Fashions , and the decorative metal drapery hardware from our Aria™ collection was provided by Rowley.
Layering Adds Beauty and Style
Ken and Laura were ready to leave the suburbs for a larger downtown home to accommodate two kids and space for Ken’s race cars. While Drew was challenged with meeting Laura’s artistic tastes and fulfilling the couple’s wish list for a new home, Jonathan’s expertise was needed to update window treatments and do an overall freshening up to get their old house ready to sell. Installing Budget Blinds’Signature Series® 2” Milk White faux wood blinds in both the dining and living rooms transformed the windows. Pleated draperies in Engagement White Gold in the living room created a softened, elegant effect for the windows flanking the fireplace. Floor-length drapery panels in Engagement Madrid added an appealing splash of color in the dining room, increasing marketability. See the final reveal on Pinterest by clicking here.
Budget Blinds serving Roswell, and Mike Hewitt of Budget Blinds serving Atlanta North East came through with dazzling window treatments that helped pull the extensive makeover together. Installing Signature Series 2” Milk White faux wood blinds in living room, dining room and kitchen set the stage for a clean, consistent look that was further enhanced in the living room and dining room by colorful draperies to brighten up each space. Jennifer, Adesola and their three children were finally able to move into a much-needed larger home.

Draperies from the Inspired Drapes collection, sold exclusively by Budget Blinds, and coordinating Signature Series® blinds create an elegant atmosphere. Draperies or curtains alone can beautifully dress a window, but layering them over blinds or shades can add extra glamour to a room. Draperies over blinds also provide an added layer of insulation to improve energy efficiency, helping to maintain a constant room temperature while maximizing light and privacy controls.
In your own home, your imagination can run wild with layered window treatments:
- Add drama with contrasting color-block drapery styles or exhilarating colors and patterns
- Bring nature indoors with woven wood shades in natural fibers and textures for a casual, calming effect
- Create a softening effect by using sheer fabrics in light colors and subtle patterns
- Incorporate valances and custom hardware to add interesting details and style
- Add motorization to makes drapes, blinds and shades easy to manage with either a handheld or a wall-mounted remote
