I rarely give reviews or even 5 stars because it means things don’t need to improve. That is not the case here Doug and Maria know there is always room to improve and perform better so they don’t need to be reminded of that they automatically do. The 5 stars is for what they do and they do it well. Other service businesses should learn from them because just about all of the ones I have dealt with are poor to say the least. Keeping appointments, punctual, prepared, professional and be a homeowner that is looking to work at your house to the same perfection of their own house is what they do well to just bring up the obvious ones. They won’t ever do something in your house different than in their own home. Doug even climbed a ladder in my house to install a blind that was pretty high up. I have trusted them in my house and now friends and family as well. Time, perfect details, great people, on the spot competitive pricing and spot on finished product is what you will get. I with out a doubt recommend them.

After gathering a few quotes, we decided to go with Blinds by Design. We were very happy with our shades and didn’t hesitate to call them again when we moved a couple years later. Doug and Maria make a great team. I appreciate how detail oriented they are as well as their input in what would work best for what we wanted. They truly care about making sure you are completely satisfied with your window treatments and we couldn’t be happier.

We had been looking for a store/company that installs plantation shutters, at the suggestion of wife’s sister. We went online, thinking we could easily find a store showroom to see what they have. We drove to five different places only to find them closed or out of business.

Apparently, their websites are not kept current. We were very disappointed, and figured we thought we were the last family on the planet to want plantation shutters. Thus, the reason such stores were out of business.

As a last effort, a day or so later, I decided to browse again and found a number. I did not pay much attention to the name of the business, as I just wanted to call. I was greeted by a very succinct message from an answering machine that asked how many windows I wanted done. “No vagueness here’” I thought – such a direct question from transistors. I hesitated, but left my contact information on the machine, the number of windows, and hung up. I thought about the Speakeasy’s during prohibition in the 1920’s with the man sliding back a small door asking for the password. I was thinking this was another lost cause.

A day later I received a call from a Douglas, who identified himself as from Blinds by Design. I had to think a bit before I realized that the answering machine was indeed being monitored. This launched us (wife and I) into an interesting adventure into the plantation shutter world.

Doug and Maria, his wife (the Team), visited my home, demonstrated their products, and measured all the windows. Doug did the engineering work in measuring in determining the shutter layout, and Maria was the shutter design artisan. I did eventually find another company to provide a quote as well. Both offers were within a few dollars of each other. I decided to go with Blinds by Design primarily because they seem to care.

The rest is history. Doug and Maria worked as team to have the shutters installed. Even the helper crew was very cordial and professional. I was concerned with living in a “glass house” for hours because I removed all the existing window treatments before Doug and crew arrived. However, I should not have had any concerns, because the plantation shutters were installed very quickly.

My wife came home and was thrilled to see a whole new look. The shutters just make the house so complete.

I recommend Blinds by Design without hesitation. We continue to communicate from time to time.

2 years ago I met Doug and Maria when a new neighbor referred them to me to have new window coverings for my newly constructed home. I needed coverings for 2 triple sliders and 10 windows. Needless to say I was overwhelmed at this but thanks to Maria’s assistance with decorating ideas the decision was made to put in Solar Roller shades motorized for the sliders and the Allure transistioal dual sheer shades that were battery operated. I have shown them to so many new friends who were so complimentary on the Quality and the Beauty of all of theiir creation. I have loved them EVERYDAY since the install and the ease of use is the greatest.

Now 2 years later I had to reach out to them as I misplaced my battery charger (which by the way have not needed it for 2 years) because one of the window coverings wands needed to be charged.. Doug called me back within an hour of my phone call and delivered a new battery charger connector early the next day. WOW I was so impressed.

This is what I call 5 STAR Product and Service.
If you are looking to have windows or doors done you can’t do wrong with this great company and great people.

Every aspect of working with Doug and Maria was both professional and friendly. When they came to our home they were on time and well prepared. They shared their knowledge on what does and doesn’t work and what they thought would be best for us. We were interested in plantation shutters. They had several styles and price levels to choose from. They took precise measurements and explained the complete process.

The shutters arrived very quickly and were installed throughout my whole house the same day. They added so much to the look of the house. These shutters are high quality and beautiful. What I especially love was that Doug and Maria came back to make sure we were happy. This kind of service is rare these days. I highly recommend Blinds By Design Orlando to anyone. (Scott W.)

They were so easy to work with and helpful with giving me the best options and fabrics for my windows. They are quick to respond when you gave a question or need service. Very professional and I personally feel the best in the industry! I recommend them to all of my friends. They are very affordable compared to similar company products.

Blinds by Design is an amazing company. Doug and Maria are professional, as well as, cordial. We first used their services 8 years
ago. Everything looked wonderful. Wanting a new look, I, recently, contacted the company. They explained my options and showed me samples of window treatments. Without a doubt, Doug and Maria are well versed in the products and services that they provide. I decided on Plantation Shutters. Not only do they look great, they are of excellent quality. Installation was done professionally, with extra care and accuracy. Blinds by Design is a company which takes pride in its products and service. They are prompt, as well as, reliable. Honest and ready to address your concerns. Personal attention is important when making decisions regarding interior decorating. it’s nice to know that there is a company out there that has your best interests in mind. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give them a score of 15. More recently, they installed
a battery operated solar shade. Wonderful!!!!!
