How Can I Make My House More Beautiful?
Smart Shades in Our Home
Our home is all about smart home technology and having motorized shades is the perfect fit. Budget Blinds was able to customize our shades and drapery to enhance our aesthetic while addressing our oversized windows. The final result is stunning!
Breathing Life into Forgotten Spaces
Our particular windows were a unique width and length and required professional assistance. The entire process from selecting the fabric to installation day was perfectly seamless, and we couldn't be happier with the end result!
Custom Window Coverings Make Such a Difference in Our Home
Budget Blinds custom window treatments in Kaylee's 100-year-old house in Nova Scotia. We upgraded Kaylee's space with new motorized roller shades and custom draperies in her dining room. Then we installed cordless child-safe Roman shades in her son Edwin's nursery with matching pillows. For more design inspiration read on for Kaylee's experience with her local Budget Blinds consultant.
A Little Slice of Kitchen Heaven
We helped Mary Ellen design the perfect kitchen space with a woven wood shade that perfectly complemented her decor.
Update Our 1950s Home
"I was so excited to partner with Budget Blinds on our forever home. My husband and I had to replace every single window in our original 1950s home so we knew some sort of blind, plantation shutter or shade would be needed for both privacy and the aesthetic we were going for.

Our Reviews and Testimonials
Yesterday I had Eric Osmun of Budget Blinds measure my windows for cellular blinds and help me with color, etc. It was a great experience. He's the owner and operator of the business so he's offered to store my blinds in his garage (the blinds will be fabricated and ready in 2 weeks) until the moment I'm ready for them to be installed. The blinds are made by one of the foremost blind manufacturer's in the country so the quality is going to be good. And he has a broad range of prices. He left me with several of his business cards in case any of you are interested. He does all kinds of blinds, drapes etc. I know those of you on the second and third floors might not be thinking so much of your windows but for me it was essential that I get ahead of this issue. So when you're ready, I feel I can recommend Eric's Budget Blinds to you. He's pleasant, knowledgeable, and will personally come out to solve any post-installation problems. gailO— Gail, Santa Cruz, CA
I replaced all my old wooden blinds with gorgeous honeycomb blinds. Eric was unfailingly patient and competent. One of the blinds developed a problem with a motor and Eric came, inspected, ordered a new blind, delivered and installed it for free!! Now that's service. When I phoned about the problem blind, Judy answered the phone from a convention in Las Vegas, made an appointment for me, and was amazingly helpful. You can't go wrong with these folks. The best.— Marry Fran A. Santa Cruz, CA
When we first moved to our house in Scotts Valley, there were zero window treatments. We did our research and had 3 companies come and bid the job. Eric was very competitive and we did like that it was him that comes to bid the job and that it's him who installs it. It's just him and his wife, so there's no worries about anything getting lost in translation. They did about 3/4 of our windows in plantation shutters, which turned out gorgeous. We just had them come out to do another room with the same shutters this morning, which is a Saturday. Love that. The shutters arrived to them on Friday, they called me the same evening to set up install and offered me today. I was thrilled and it looks awesome. I really can't say anything negative about the company. They've returned all my calls within a reasonable amount of time and they've come through with all their promises. Eric also gives very realistic timelines, which is very important to me. I do not like when someone tells me that it will be here in 2 weeks and it ends up being 5. We really do appreciate that it's a local business, as well and not a huge chain. You can definitely feel at ease using this company. Plantation shutters are not inexpensive, so I would not trust just anyone to do them. I want them to last and I am confident in using Budget Blinds of Santa Cruz.— Sandy F. Scotts valley, CA
