Customer Recommendation for Thomas Nichols

Thomas,

Just an FYI that the blinds were, in fact, delivered and installed today. They look simply awesome – much better than anticipated.

I’m sure you may not get that many positive emails, so wanted to take the time to do just that – send an email stating my pleasure for quality and professionalism of the Three Day blinds crew and yourself.

Best regards,
Tom

How to Choose Blackout Shades or Blinds

Blackout Honeycomb Shades by 3 Day Blinds      One of the questions our Design Consultants are asked most frequently is “What are the options to create total darkness in a room?”  Custom-made Blackout Shades are a great option for media rooms  and rooms for day sleepers, among many other applications.  Fortunately, they have many options to offer!  Here is an overview of the blackout products that we carry:

Honeycomb Shades (pictured above) are the most popular option. We offer dozens of colors, fabrics and cell sizes in our Blackout Honeycomb Shades (sometimes called Cellular Shades).  The room darkening fabrics in this collection are completely opaque and will block all light from the outside.  These shades also feature a very small light gap of 1/4″ or less on either side when mounted inside the window, and they stack very tightly when raised, maintaining your view…  plus Honeycomb Shades are great for insulation and reducing energy bills year-round.  They’re also available with some great options and upgrades, the most popular being the Top Down / Bottom Up Shade that can be lowered from the top or raised from the bottom so that you can let the light in from above and maintain privacy below. 

Other 3 Day Blinds products that offer blackout materials within the assortment include Roller Shades, Roman Shades, Flexcell Honeycomb BlindsHorizontal Sheer Shadings,  Faux Wood Blindsl and Hunter Douglas Architella Duette Shades.  

“Here in the Phoenix-Scottsdale area, we have a lot of requests for Blackout Shades,” says 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant Kimberly Brock. “With the bright sunlight and heat that we have here in the summer, many of my clients want to create a retreat within their homes where they can control the light with interior lamps when the shades are down, and I can always find the right solution within our product selections.” 

Ready to take a look at the many beautiful ways we offer to darken a room with custom blinds or shades?  Just give us a call at 877-614-3329 to schedule your free in-home design consultation.

Customer Recommendation for Heidi Benson

Heidi,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your promptness and professionalism in helping me deal with the replacement of the mini-blinds throughout my home.

As you may recall I was under a bit of a time crunch to get the blinds replaced so that I could begin showing my home as I placed it on the market. I had exactly four days to achieve not only the blinds, but painting, and the deconstruction and reconstruction of everything in the house. Thanks to your speedy response, and that of the subsequent installation team… I was able to achieve all that I planned to in a four-day window.

Should I find that a future need arises for blinds in my future home, I will surely look to 3 Day Blinds to provide exceptional service.

Thanks again, and keep up the good work,
Richard

Love Interior Design? Love to Sell? 3 Day Blinds is Hiring!

In the last few years, we at 3 Day Blinds have changed the way we do business.  5 years ago we placed a lot of emphasis on retail stores, and although we still have 21 fabulous showrooms throughout the country, our business has shifted primarily to in-home selling.  We have found that the best way for us to determine the ideal window treatment for our clients, is to see their actual windows and surrounding decor. 

The primary focus for the team at the corporate office and in our factory is to support our Design Consultants with great training, a wide range of custom window treatments to sell,  the tools to provide a quote on the spot (including samples and a notebook computer), and the marketing support to build their businesses by becoming the go-to person in their community for custom blinds, shades and shutters.

So, what’s it like to be a 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant? Just ask Corinne Mar, who serves the San Mateo, CA area, and is one of our top Designers.  “I love my career with 3 Day Blinds.  I’ve covered thousands of windows in the Bay Area with the custom blinds, shades and shutters we offer. Every client has different requirements regarding style, light control, insulation, privacy and budget.  With the training I have received, and the products, end-to-end service and fast delivery we offer, I can always find the ideal solution.  It is very satisfying to provide a trouble-free experience and then to see the transformation,” says Corinne.  

“From a personal standpoint, I have a full-time job with benefits, a flexible schedule, and the convenience of working from a home office.  This career gives me the ability to fully leverage my love of people, creativity, business savvy and technical knowledge.  And because my income is based on the success I have with my clients, the sky is the limit!”

What’s the profile of a successful Design Consultant at 3 Day Blinds?  We asked Tikie Holewski, SVP of Human Resources.  “Our Design Consultants are an energized group of people who develop relationships with their clients in order to help them create beautiful window treatment solutions, and who grow their businesses by building a strong network within the communities they serve,” says Tikie. 

“Our Winning Team Designers is comprised of bright individuals who welcome challenge and are excited by the opportunity to work in a dynamic, fast paced and creative environment, with a compensation structure that provides them unlimited upside!”

If you fit that profile, we would love to meet you!  Click here to see the list of our current Design Consultant opportunities.

Customer Recommendation for Kimberly Prince

I just wanted to forward  a short note to you to thank you for the great service we recieved from you during our purchase of window coverings.

I truly appreciated your professionalism and knowledge of the products that 3 Day Blinds offers. You were extremely patient and helpful during my indecision with regard to window coverings for the master bedroom slider. My calls to you were returned promptly and it was a pleasure to deal with you as you are a very positive person who really appears to enjoy interacting with the public.

Our products were ordered, delivered, and installed weeks prior to the originally estimated install date. We will be purchasing window coverings for our upstairs bonus room in the near future and look forward to working with you again.

Thanks again for providing outstanding service!
Leslie B.

Customer Recommendation for Barbara Howell

I would like to recommend Barbara Howell and 3 Day Blinds for the great service I received with my recent order.

Barbara was very professional. She came out to my home on the day scheduled and measured the windows I was interested in covering. She then put together a printed quote for me. I placed my order and received my blinds as promised. And despite the fact that there was a small problem in the original order, Barbara was able to resolve it quickly.

The sale after the sale is what makes a customer come back!
Thank you,
Patricia

Customer Recommendation for Rebecca Popoff

We had the opportunity to work with Rebecca Popoff, Design Consultant, at 3 Day Blinds and want to let you know how pleased we were to hav eordered our window shades from her.

We have a fairly big home here in La Jolla, CA and it was stressful to think about what kind of new shading we needed.

AFter several rounds of consultations with Rebecca, we were able to come upw ith a nice selection of window coverings that are just right for our modern, “Asian style” home.

It was such a costly investment that I am very grateful to have been able to work with Ms. Popoff. I would highly recommend her professional services.

Sincerely,
Linda

Customer Recommendation for Angela Howe

Angie,

Thanks so much for the incredible job you did on our shop.  You were right on the spot in no time, and the product you recommended for our windows on the sunny side of our shop…..cut our air conditioning bill down by about 25% during the summer as it literally blocked all heat penetration beating down on our shop.  Your ability to get out here quick, recommend the product that would impact us most, get it measured, made and installed was miraculous!  We can’t thank you enough for a great job….the payback to our business on the investment you engineered was under 6 months in energy savings.   What’s more….they look absolutely awesome from the inside as well as from outside the shop.

Thanks again. 

Chuck and Susan
