Budget Blinds and The Property Brothers

If you're a fan of the Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott, you probably know they have completed an overhaul renovation of a Mediterranean style 5,400 sq. ft. home in Las Vegas, U.S.A and turned it into a virtual oasis in the middle of the desert. They love Las Vegas and wanted a Vegas vibe for their family destination home. They wanted a place where friends and family can gather and be together with "anything anybody might want" all in one place.

For years Jonathan and Drew have helped as hundreds of families live through renovations and find their dream homes with their three popular HGTV home improvement shows; Property Brothers, Buying and Selling and Brother vs. Brother. On The Property Brothers at Home they are their own clients and that definitely has made for some interesting viewing! Just like everyone else, they have not been spared the squabbles over design elements, sticker shock of surprise costs and project time delays that cause stress and frustration as they raced to finish before their big Scott Family Reunion in November.

Already affiliated through Buying and Selling with the Property Brothers by supplying window treatments for the show's renovated homes, Budget Blinds® and its sister company, Tailored Living®, came onboard to provide innovative window coverings, custom closet organization systems, garage cabinets and garage flooring.

A Really Extensive Renovation
The Scott Brothers turned what they described as an "outdated décor, empty and blank [house] with a barren backyard" into a dream spa like retreat. A primary focus was the outdoor living space since Jonathan confessed, "My favorite spaces to do are outdoor living spaces and this has every component I could want in my yard." The backyard became an extension of both the main house and the guest house, unified in an over-the-top, luxurious resort area with a strong focus on play:

Salt water infinity pool with built-in seating areas and rocking lounge chairs

  • Hot tub to comfortably entertain 10 people
  • Pool house with a full outdoor kitchen and swim-up bar
  • Fire pit and top-of-the-line barbeque that can cook 35 steaks at a time
  • 15' drop-down movie screen that's wind and earthquake proof for outdoor movies
  • Giant commercial-grade Splashtacular water slide, 91.66' long and 15' high
  • Putting green (requiring total redesign by Drew)
  • Tiled basketball court with imbedded quote: "You miss 100% of the shots you don't take"
  • Outside dining area and see-through fireplace
  • Lavish doggie park for Gracie and Stewie (Jonathan's dogs) with synthetic turf, (real) palm trees, and lounge chairs—relaxing for pets and people alike
  • Game room loft in the main house with custom-made, vintage-style pool table and video arcade games

The Breath-Taking Guest House
The main house is shared living space for the brothers, so they built a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house in the backyard for their parents to escape the cold Canadian winters where they live. Jonathan and Drew took great pains to give it special touches. They made sure to give their mom a spa-style master bath and open-concept kitchen and handy laundry facilities and loads of storage space.

For their dad, Drew made a replica of a coffee table he and Jonathan played on as kids. The original had been made by their dad and had ranch brands burned into the top. They hunted down branding irons of the ranches he'd worked in the past and burned them into the new table. (The table was a big hit and mom cried happy tears when they toured the guest house.)

Travis Ogburn, franchise owner of Budget Blinds serving Las Vegas installing roman shades in the guest bedroom just before the parents arrive

Travis Ogburn is the owner of Budget Blinds serving Las Vegas and he concentrated on making the guest house the comfortable haven like Jonathan and Drew wanted it to be for their parents. Roman shades were donated by Horizons Window Fashions they are a long time manufacturing partner of Budget Blinds. They were the perfect window treatment to control sunlight and offer privacy while enhancing the ranch-style rustic, charming and simple style that the parents like. Jonathan said, "The roman shades look killer!"

In the living room, knife pleat roman shades in a neutral tone layered with patterned floor-to-ceiling drapes were the ideal backdrop for the overstuffed sofa and chairs, creating a "quiet, comfortable elegance with a warm blend of fabrics to make the room cozy."
The master bedroom and guest bedroom received knife pleat roman shades in room-coordinating colors so each room's décor was uniquely refined.
Roman shades combine classic form with contemporary function:

Many styles to choose from including relaxed folds, balloon shades, hobbled, classic pleated, and cascading fold.
They come in a variety of elegant and modern fabrics and colors
Light-filtering and room-darkening lining options to suit your needs
Shades provide energy efficient insulation
Shades can be cordless or automated making them extremely safe for pets and children
