We’ve all heard the warm, fuzzy clichés about home:
- Home is where the heart is (Pliny the Elder)
- A man’s home is his castle (Old English proverb)
- There’s no place like home (Dorothy, Wizard of Oz)
How do you feel about home? Is your home a sanctuary from the work-a-day world, or does going home add to your stress? Do you dream of having a home that wraps around you like a luscious down-filled comforter?
Budget Blinds® believes every home should be a comfortable and inviting experience, and that beautiful window treatments contribute to creating that atmosphere. Partnering with HGTV’s popular home improvement TV show, Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers, Budget Blinds is privileged this season to help 10 families’ dreams of home and comfort come true.
Help for the harried homeowner
Jonathan and Drew Scott are indeed brothers, twins in fact; one a savvy real estate professional and the other a home-makeover genius. Together they help desperate families get out of their outgrown homes and into new homes that accommodate each family’s changing needs.
One major challenge in every episode is for Drew to sell the existing home for enough money to afford the new, larger home. Inevitably, the existing house is under market value in its current condition, and that’s where Jonathan works his magic. His renovation philosophy that drives the makeovers: “Educate the homeowner on how to maximize the appeal of their home and make it look like a million bucks.”
Part of this magic is installing custom-designed window treatments from Budget Blinds, transforming rooms from dull to dynamic, adding style and personality.
Layered window treatments add beauty, comfort and value
Pastor Chris and Jennifer are raising nine children in a three-bedroom, one-bath home. Their need for more space is certainly obvious! While Drew searches for a much larger, yet budget-friendly home, Jonathan must update their well-used home to make it attractive to buyers for a quick sell.
Budget Blinds transformed the tired dining and family rooms into fabulous spaces exuding comfort and charm. Milk White 2” faux wood blinds from our Signature Series® collection made the windows look beautiful and fresh, with added-value light and privacy control. Layering lined drapes in Magic and Paradise designs over the blinds increased the energy efficiency of the window treatments in each room, lending style and warmth. This upgrade made Drew’s selling job easier and brought Chris, Jennifer and all the kids closer to getting their new home. See the final results on Pinterest by clicking here.
Evanna and Lazarus want a move-in ready new home for their three kids, but face daunting challenges with their older home. Not only does Jonathan have major surprises to address that push expenses over the remodeling budget, Drew is faced with realtor distrust by the couple. He has to step up his considerable charm and expertise into high gear to make everybody happy.
Budget Blinds updated the kitchen and breakfast nook areas with 2” smooth-finish, Milk White faux wood blinds, creating a brighter, more inviting atmosphere. The master bedroom also received Milk White faux wood blinds to modernize the room. Lined floor-length draperies in a Waterfall design brought a cohesive touch to the rooms and created a relaxed, cozy feeling. See their home makeover on Pinterest by clicking here.
Jan Fitzgerald, Budget Blinds franchise owner serving Roswell, Georgia, handled the measuring and installation, and Springs Window Fashions, a trusted manufacturing partner of Budget Blinds, provided the faux wood blinds and custom draperies for these two successful renovations. The decorative metal drapery hardware was from our Aria™ collection was provided by Rowley.
