  • Ed-Michelle-Guldner

    Edward and Michelle Guldner


    After 20+ years in the dental field for Michelle and 20 years in corporate sales and leadership for Ed, we decided to fulfill our dreams of growing a business together. With a vision to build a customer-centric brand in West Michigan, in March 2018 we decided to purchase a local Budget Blinds because of their strong brand, consultative approach to customer service, industry leading warranty and a total solutions offering that the competition wish they had! Our custom residential and commercial product offering includes automation, blinds, shades, shutters, drapes and more. We will be servicing customers throughout the Kent, Ottawa, Montcalm and Ionia counties including Grand Rapids, Allendale, Rockford, Lowell, Greenville and surrounding communities. We are very excited to start our new mission of serving our community with quality custom window treatments and a superior in-home shopping experience. We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business!
