Customer Recommendation for Angela Helton

Dear Angela,

I want to thank you again for the wonderful job you did for me. You came on Tuesday, my windows were measured on Wednesday, and installed two days later on Saturday.  You kept me updated on time and arrivals of the people that came for installation (which was a great company).  You helped me choose the best products to help with my needs for blocking the glare of the sun, as well as for color and style. Your company should be very appreciative to have a representative like you.

I am very happy with the work, as well as the installation. Good job.

Thank you,
Zsa Zsa

Customer Recommendation for Deborah Anderson

Hi Deborah,

I just want to thank you for helping me choose the Cherry Wood Blind for my side window. A friend came by today and installed it for me, and I really think that it was the best choice for that window.

Thank you!
Donna M.

Real Wood or Faux Wood Blinds? Tips for Choosing.

Wood Blinds by 3 Day Blinds are made from the finest hardwoods and are finished with a low gloss stain to highlight the grain.

One question we are often asked is how to determine whether to purchase genuine Wood Blinds or Faux Wood Blinds.  3 Day Blinds Design Consultants are trained experts to help homeowners determine the right solution during the free in-home consultations that they provide, but here are some guidelines:

Advantages of Genuine Wood Blinds

  • Wood grains look richer
  • Lighter in weight, therefore easier to lift and lower 
  • Horizontal spacing between ladders is wider
  • More color and finish options 

Advantages of Faux Wood Blinds

  • Less expensive
  • More durable – less likely to warp, crack or peel, particularly in high-moisture environments
  • Provide the same look as wood in painted finishes

Both Wood and Faux Wood Blinds

  • Have decorative ladder tapes that can be added for a finishing touch
  • Can be upgraded with our Light-less feature
  • Come with beautifully sculpted valances
  • Are custom-made to the client specifications with top quality materials and components
  • Can be delivered in 2 days after order is placed

Faux Wood Blinds are durable and great for high-moisture areas.

We asked Jeanette Nouribekian, a top 3 Day Blinds Designer serving the Calabasas and Woodland Hills areas of California how she helps her clients decide.  “First, we evaluate the environment.  If we are updating bathroom or kitchen where there is a lot of moisture present, or if they are trying to stay within a tight budget, I recommend Faux Wood Blinds. On the other hand, if we are looking at a living room area with a lot of rich wood grains, I offer the option to coordinate with one of our genuine Wood Blinds.  In cases where the client wants to match the paint color, I recommend Faux Wood Blinds, often upgraded with the sculpted Coronado Valance,” says Jeanette. “Very often both options would be very appropriate and the decision then becomes one driven by aesthetic preferences.”

If you are ready to outfit your home with brand-new, custom made blinds, shades or shutters, our expert Designers are ready to bring the showroom to your home.  Just call us at 877-614-3329 to schedule your free in-home design consultation, or click here to meet Jeanette or your local 3 Day Blinds Designer.

3 Day Blinds Manufacturing Team Kicks off Zero Defect Program with BBQ

Frank Gutierrez, SVP, Manufacturing and Supply Chain, and Xavier Esparza, General Manager, Manufacturing put on their aprons and cook up a storm for the whole team.Zero defects from a factory that customizes 1000+ window treatment products with 6000 components in sizes from 8″ x 8″ up to over 200″ wide and 156″ in height, with dozens of unique options and upgrades that are made and shipped the day after the order is placed?  Sounds impossible, but the team at the 3 Day Blinds factory is focused on that goal.

To celebrate their already excellent quality record, and to kick off the next phase of the program where teams with focus like lazars on any materials or processes that can be improved, the management group treated the entire team of 160 people to a BBQ last week.  “Compared to the competition, our defect rate is very low, in fact, we’re very close to zero defects already,” said Frank Gutierrez, SVP, Manufacturing & Supply Chain, “but we are striving to be the best we can, and the whole team is on board to make this happen.”

“We’re always busy, and focused on producing and shipping top quality custom blinds and shades, each with unique specifications.” said Xavier Esparza, General Manager, Manufacturing, “So, it was great to cook up a great meal and have a little celebration and fun on a sunny day.”

If you’re ready to deck your house out in perfectly and precisely produced custom window treatments made by this fabulous team, call us now at 877-614-3329.  One of our expert designers will visit your home, help you select the best products for your application and budget, measure your windows and arrange for installation.  Order your new custom  blinds or shades today and the team at our factory in Ensenada, Mexico can have them over the border tomorrow and deliverred the following day!
