This review needs to be prefaced by saying that we had installed white Hunter Douglas 2" faux wood blinds with valance in our previous house. Our previous house had 22 windows with blinds at a total cost of $3,662.13 including installation and removal of our old cheap metal blinds (or approximately $166.46 per window). We moved to Louisville and called several places about getting quotes for blinds. We went with Budget Blinds because they were able to come out the soonest to give us a quote and were able to install temporary blinds in our bedroom to hold us over until they could come out for install (about 2 weeks from quote date). Our bedroom faces the street and is on the first floor, so having something temporary was important to us. (Note: After going to the home improvement store, we see that you can pick up the temporary blinds yourself there if you wanted to). Rick determined the quote amount while he was out here, and we were so pleasantly surprised by the amount that we decided to do the entire house at one time (initially were only going to do the downstairs to spread out the cost). Communication was great, install was fast and on time, and there were no surprise costs. After living with the blinds for a couple months, they are inferior quality to the Hunter Douglas we used to have: not as smooth operation, flimsier slats, plastic knobs, etc (things that you would only notice by looking very close or using them daily). However, the cost for Budget Blinds was $1,099.06 including installation, or approximately $78.50 per window, which is significantly less than what we paid per window at our previous house. When we sold our previous house, we did not get a return on the Hunter Douglas blinds - no one cared about the name brand or quality as long as there was privacy. If we hadn't had the Hunter Douglas blinds before, I would never question the quality of the Budget Blinds we have now. The lesson - there was no need to spend that kind of money on Hunter Douglas blinds, especially if you plan on selling your house anytime in the next several years. The Budget Blinds are much more economical and provide the same privacy and look. We are very pleased with the result from Budget Blinds and will never go back to pricey name brand blinds again.
