Customer Recommendation for Valerie Pugliese

I had never dealt with 3 Day Blinds before and did not know what to expect.  I gave a call to 3 Day Blinds and got Valerie.  We arranged a meeting time in my home and Valerie arrived promptly. 

It is always a bit stressful inviting a stranger into one’s home, but I immediately felt comfortable with Valerie.  She was friendly and obviously quite knowledgeable about the 3 Day Blinds products.  She thoroughly measured my windows and gave her recommendations for the various types of coverings which would best suit my needs.  She explained the 3 Day Blinds ordering and installation process.

Valerie even helped me get rid of some of my empty moving boxes which was a big help.   

I would without a doubt recommend Valerie Pugliese as a Design Consultant.

Customer Recommendation for Bonnie Campbell

Hi Bonnie,

We love the blinds! Our home looks so much nicer from the outside, and inside of course! Our children love sleeping in their rooms so much more now that it is not so bright in there. I greatly appreciate all of your help and patience in helping me to make a decision. Once again, we are very pleased with our new blinds. Whenever we decide on our next rooms in the house, we will be sure to give you a call.  

Thank you again for all of your help, we cannot wait to do the rest of our home!

Customer Photos: Q Motion Shades by 3 Day Blinds in 2 Beautiful Homes

Q Motion Shades by 3 Day Blinds in a 3% solar screen fabric protect furnishings from the sun. The optional fascia covers the roller mechanisms and worked perfectly with the architecture.

3 Day Blinds recently installed Q Motion Motorized Shades in two beautiful homes in Claremont, CA.

3-day-blinds-q-motion-P1040602Q Motion Shades by 3 Day Blinds in a dining room.Both homes are impeccably decorated with modern furnishings and precious artwork,  have gorgeous, sweeping views of the San Gabriel Mountains, and intense sunlight at certain times of the day.

Our challenge was to find a motorized custom window treatment solution that would protect their furnishings, preserve their view when opened or closed, adjust up or down quietly, lower energy bills, provide ease of operation, fit into the modern aesthetic discreetly and look downright gorgeous!

We knew that these homeowners were in need of the latest technology: Q Motion.  These Motorized Shades, offered by 3 Day Blinds, provide smooth, quiet operation either by remote control or by hand. They are powered by standard D cell batteries that will last for up to 5 years, and are easy to replace. Plus they’re available in dozens of fabrics including solar screen and blackout fabrics, and can cover windows up to 120″ wide by 120″ high. One remote can operate one shade, or a roomful of them!

We are currently offering Q Motion Shades to our clients in Orange County and Los Angeles, in addition to the 1000+ products we offer nationwide.  To see these state-of-the-art shades for yourself, call 877-614-3329 to schedule your free in-home design consultation.  Our expert design consultant will help you design the ideal window treatments to fit your style, light control needs and budget.

3-day-blinds-name-tags-Untitled - 3Since we have so many new faces, Executive Vice President Tikie Holewski decided we all should wear name badges.  Instead of issuing us boring name tags with bar codes and driver license quality photos, she empowered us to make our own, filling our small conference room with craft items, so that we could creatively show off our passions, hobbies, families, pets and favorite sports in a myriad of creative ways!

Simply Sheer Shades by 3 Day Blinds Transform Conference Room

SIMPLY-SHEER-BY-3-DAY-BLINDS-Untitled - 17Simply Sheer Shades by 3 Day Blinds in our Conference Room.

It has been 3 years since the 3 Day Blinds Irvine Support Center moved into our current offices in Irvine, CA, and we’re in the process of remodeling to accommodate more team members, since we seem to be on a constant hiring spree, driven by our growth.

Given that we specialize in custom window treatments, it was high time that we replaced the mini blinds, (made by a competitor, no less), on the interior facing windows in our conference room.

We chose Simply Sheer Shades, a modern fabric shade product that we introduced last October.  These shades are just wonderful because they offer great light control, and unlike other sheer shades, can be adjusted when raised to any level.  For this application, we can close them completely for room darkening privacy, adjust them to filter light from outside and provide a view inside, or open them all the way up so that they are completely hidden in the color coordinated, aluminum cassette headrail.  

But the best news is that they look spectacular!  It was fun to watch as our associates who were walking by stopped to marvel at this fabulous upgrade.  

Simply Sheer Shades are ideal for large windows where light and privacy control are needed.  Ready to see them for yourself, along with the 1000 other products we can customize for you?  Just call us at  877-614-3329, or click here to schedule your free in-home Design Consultation online.  During this consultation, our designer will help you choose the perfect product, take guaranteed measurements, provide a quote and arrange for professional installation.
