All Lasting Business Is Built On Friendship
We love our customers and they love us. The following customers were so impressed by the level of service they received from Blinds By Design that they wrote us letting us know how much they appreciated our work.
First and foremost, wonderful people, extremely knolwedgeable, great products, superior and quality service. Now the details. We had used Lowes in the past for some windows treatments and really do not have anything particularly negative to say (though in retrospect wish we had known of Blinds by Design at that time). However Lowes, like Home Depot can only accomodate you to a point with respect to process (measurement, ordering, installation) and product offerrings (in the case window treatments.Suffice to say Blinds by Design has the brick and mortar stores beat by a mile in all of the above categories. With regard to price, they matched what Lowes was charging us, for a better product that Lowes could even offer. A + B = how can you beat that. They were able to accomodate our “crazy” schedule. They arrived with their mobile showroom. It was truly amazing the variety of samples they brought with them – way way more than we have ever seen in Lowes, Home Depot and to be honest some other stores who sell window treatments. They are state of the art when it comes to measuring, meaning what you get fits perfectly. Meticulous is the only way to describe the way they handled the installation. Seriously, they handled everything like it was their own home. We are having other things done in our house, and if they offered those service they would be at the top of our consideration list.

If you are looking for very detail-oriented and exceptional service for plantation shutters, Doug and Maria of Blinds By Design are the professionals for you! They responded within 24 hours of our initial inquiry and were at the house for a free estimate within three days. While they were not the only estimate we received, Doug and Maria were the only professionals who spent several hours measuring each and every window the first meeting. We asked for various estimates based on type of shutters (wood vs. poly), additional window treatments, and itemizing each window by room. When we had additional questions, Doug responded quickly. The price was very reasonable and comparable to the other estimate. When it was time to place the order, they spent an additional three hours guiding us through frame and color options as well as double checking all the window measurements. They assured us the shutters would arrive in about four weeks, so when they had our entire house completely finished in only THREE WEEKS my husband and I were delighted! The shutters look absolutely gorgeous and every single shutter fits perfectly. We highly recommend Blinds By Design for your plantation shutters!

“My wife and I recently moved to the Orlando area and were looking to change out the outdated window treatments in our new home. Doug and his wife did an awesome job changing the look of our home with all new plantation shutters. The pricing was very competitive and the look is second to none. Great Job! We cannot be happier with how everything turned out!” – J.R.
“I had Doug take care of the blinds in my new home in Florida. I gave some very basic guidelines of what I wanted and left the design, color and blind choice up to him and his wife. When I arrived and saw the finished product I couldn’t believe what a great job they did. The colors and the blind choices were wonderful. An A+ to Blinds By Design.” – Judy
All I can say is WOW! not only did we get beautiful window treatments but Doug and Maria are such a pleasure to work with! They are so knowledgeable and friendly yet very professional. They ordered a product that they had never ordered before from a company that they held in high regards but when they put it up they immediately saw a problem and because they didn’t trust the stability or look of the product quickly took care of the problem at their own expense! Definitely someone who cares! We are so happy with our choice in blinds by design and excited about the products they helped us pick out, helping us to make our brand new home beautiful! – Fred & Mystie Moran LOMD
Never thought Plantation Shutters could change the entire look of your house, but it DOES! And we LOVE it.. Not only did Doug and Maria do an excellent job they are very friendly. We actually look forward to them coming around. They are very professional and educated on what they do. If we were not home we would trust them to come in while we were not here and install our shutters(and we don’t let anyone in our house when were not here). We were not sure what we wanted in our kitchen area and they helped us make the decision and we couldn’t be happier! I can’t wait until they do the rest of our house! – Liz Baker
When we first started looking for plantation shutter suppliers, we knew very little about the product or process. Shopping at local suppliers was very revealing. Every one of the folks we spoke with had a “BEST” product and a “PRICE POINT” winner. It was pretty obvious that they were just selling and not really interested in what the customer needed. Internet sources were plentiful and after reading reviews and doing other research, we invited two potential providers to visit the house to discuss our needs and show us the different products that they offered. The first was pitiful. The couple came in a beat-up, old Ford and when they got out, looked like they dressed for the lower forty. They were clearly not professional looking. After they showed us their product from a beat-up old briefcase, I couldn’t get rid of them fast enough. My wife and I got a little concerned that we may have gone in the wrong direction with the internet contact approach.
Then we met Doug and Maria from Blinds By Designs, Inc. They arrived on time, were very professional in their appearance and presentation, and actually discussed what we wanted and made recommendations that enhanced our choices versus ignoring our desires as the competitor did. I am a retired engineer and extremely picky when it comes to attention to detail and product quality. Douglas and Maria went that extra mile without us having to comment! They did an absolutely excellent installation of the product they sold us on and I am glad we listened to them. I don’t normally praise someone for what I consider correct standards of quality in product and installation but I do with Blinds By Design. I would recommend them to anyone who wishes to install a high quality product the right way the first time. –Marshall K. Lounsberry, Col, USAF (Ret)
