No home renovation project is complete without a beautiful set of window coverings to act as the icing on the cake. Not only can window coverings enhance the overall décor, they can also serve as a focal point to open up a home’s outside view. On the latest episode of DIY Network’s Blog Cabin: Sledgehammer Invades Blog Cabin 2014, Budget Blinds window coverings did just that!

On this episode, DIY experts and hosts, Jason Cameron and Chris Grundy, took sledgehammers to the first floor of the Blog Cabin and demolished three walls, an outdated bathroom and an old set of stairs; the end result was a bright and open first floor. The new space revealed stunning views of the nearby lake and Enlightened Style® cellular shades from Budget Blinds were installed to preserve the view and provide additional insulation.

Cellular shades are an excellent option when renovating a home. They have the ability to complement virtually any décor and are built with small honeycomb-shaped pockets or “cells” designed to keep air from either entering or escaping the home. This provides insulation to help keep homes cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Plus, when the shades are drawn open, they give a room an airy feel and provide full views of the outdoors.

If you are not a big do-it-yourselfer, professionals from Budget Blinds—like Nelson McCullough of Budget Blinds serving Lakeland Highlands who worked in conjunction with the DIY Blog Cabin team—can come to your home and expertly measure and install window coverings for you. Budget Blinds offers a wide variety of window coverings from many trusted manufacturing partners, including Custom Brands Group who donated the products used in the 2014 Blog Cabin.
