I installed a Home Depot's Home Decorators Collection brand of blackout shades this past summer and we love them. They are cordless and buttonless. All we have to do is touch the bottom of the shade and it raises up, or grab the bottom and down it comes. Relatively easy to install. The only downside is in the early morning our pup knows he can raise the shade on his own and look outside at the wildlife and early risers walking around!

Check them out. The average price we paid was $70 each.

You can consider RecPro blinds. When I replaced my RVís blinds, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I did not need to drill any additional holes at all for these RecPro RV blinds. All the existing drill holes lined up perfectly with the holes of the bracket. I also like how these RV window shades not only block light but also keep the inside of my RV cool, even during the hottest days of summer.

perfect blinds for the windows

Hy Friends, I'm planning to renovate my home. For that, I need some perfect blinds for the windows. I can't take the risk of choosing myself. Can anyone please suggest a contractor for the window blinds?
Thank you in advance for the thoughts/recommendations!

Are you asking about blinds for a Sticks and Bricks home, or a RV?

For our Sticks and Bricks house we used Loews Home Improvement. They contract with professional installers to put our beautiful shades up. For the RV, I installed my own.

Thanks for your suggestion. My Dad's Friend suggests one shop and I plan to purchase Roller shades from there as I found some extensive discount offers. After going through the information, I found them quite good. So I have decided to order one.

One thing I found out in my state, if I bought the shades and installed them myself, I had to pay sales tax. But, if I got Lowes to install them, them they did not charge sales tax because it was considered part of the home and thus tax exempt. In my case, the sales tax was going to be slightly higher than the instillation cost, and the instiller got them put up in about an hour, and guaranteed their work for the life of the shades.
