3 Day Blinds | Sell This House: Extreme Mercer Island

The season finale of Sell This House: Extreme in Mercer Island is one of the most amazing transformations that that the 3 Day Blinds team has been involved with. Mercer Island is a gorgeous town located in the state of Washington and known for its amazing homes with beautiful views. Unfortunately for Greg and Carol, their home might have the gorgeous view but could use a lot of work. With Carol suffering from MS, she is unable to help Greg with the repairs to the home. On top of that, with the dwindling financial and physical reserves the house has become too much of a burden for this couple to bear. Carol and Greg desperately need the assitance of the Sell This House: Extreme and 3 Day Blinds team in order for them to sell their house and downsize to something more practical.

This kitchen hasn’t been updated for over 50 years, and it certainly appears that way. Not only is the style of this kitchen completely outdated but more than half the appliances don’t even work! Designer Daniel Kucan has said time and time again, the kitchen is one of the most important, if not the most important selling points of a home and the state this kitchen in has buyers thinking- this is total tear out and remodel.

If there is such thing as a perfect kitchen, this kitchen is pretty close. Builder Charlie Frattini did what he does best, ripping out seventy five percent of the kitchen. Raising the ceiling and blowing out a strange hallway that was located behind the old kitchen, completely opened up this space. A trending color palette of dark brown, white and muted blue combined with steel appliances and hardware gives this kitchen a fresh and sophisticated look.

This decor might have been attractive 50 years ago but in 2013 this screams remodel. Looking at this space all I can think of is brown, there is absolutely no life to this room, no color, texture, or interesting decor. The problem here is that nothing about this space is going to make buyers think- wow, I could really see myself living here. Instead this space has buyers running for the hills in avoidance of a stressful and expensive remodel.

Designer Daniel Kucan brought this space into the 21st century. The layout of this dining room is very vertical and draws the eyes upward making the space appear much larger. With accents of mid century modern pieces this dining room is anything but boring. Believe it or not the dining room chairs are vintage pieces that were reupholstered with 3 Day Blinds fabric in Andes Coffee Bean. In fact, if you fall in love with a 3 Day Blinds fabric you can purchase fabric by the yard and make accent pillows, or even follow suit of the expert designers and reupholster furniture.

The dull and dated theme of the kitchen and dining room is pulled into the living room as well. There are three different types of sofas in this room, three! Not to mention none of the wood furniture matches. This room is not only old and mismatched, but it is actually very dangerous. Any home buyer with kids is going to take one look at that fireplace and think, hazard. To top things off, I have to point out that this room is missing one key element…window treatments. While the sunlight peering in to the room might be nice at times can you image not having window treatments to block out the glare when watching the television?

Daniel ripped up the carpeting and ran beautiful Brazilian hardwood flooring through the house unifying the space. He painted the walls a stormy bay color that added depth to the room and bold vertical art work to draw buyers eyes upward. A new fire place and hearth make the room a cutting edge focus. 3 Day Blinds pulled through adding the finishing touch of gorgeous window treatments. The 3 Day Blinds team selected Draperies in Matrix Rivera to that complement the color palette of this scheme of this room perfectly.

Why Paper Blinds Fold Under the Pressure | 3 Day Blinds

Why Paper Blinds Fold Under the Pressure

Anyone who has ever moved from one location to another knows that it can be one of the most stressful experiences in life, not to mention costly and time consuming. After all, you’re packing up your entire life, and whether you’re moving across town or across the country, that’s no small task.

Once the moving truck is gone, and the last box has been unpacked, most of us just want to sit down and relax, or maybe take a long nap. But, unless you are moving into a fully furnished house or apartment, the window treatments in your new place might be severely lacking, or nonexistent.

Feeling Exposed Without Window Treatments?

It can be really difficult to feel settled without proper window treatments. You might have taken them for granted before, not realizing how much warmth, style and privacy they brought to your old house. Now, their necessity has never been more evident.

Because of the practical and aesthetic impact that window treatments can have on a new home, many people prioritize the purchase of blinds, shades, or drapes as the first order of business. But when calling around to popular online and local window treatment vendors, they end up shocked at how long it will take to receive the order. When the salesperson senses the hesitation and disappointment in the caller’s voice, they might recommend buying paper blinds from a retail store.

Are Paper Blinds Worth the Trouble

Paper blinds are temporary window coverings that are often used when waiting for permanent window treatments. They consist of accordion-folded paper with an adhesive strip, with a set of small clips that is typically included to hold them up.

While paper binds do provide temporary privacy, they have many drawbacks. First of all, they can’t be cleaned, so if a child decides they are an ideal canvas for his next masterwork, then you’ll have to look at the painting or drawing until the long wait for some of our competitors’ window treatments is over.

Second, while fairly easy to install, removing paper blinds can be very difficult. The residue left behind by the adhesive backing can be tough to remove, and many recommended removal methods run the risk of damaging your paint or walls.

Third, installing paper blinds adds extra, unnecessary cost and work to the already stressful experience of getting settled in a new place. If you are paying for window treatments, why should you have to make an extra trip to pay for tacky paper blinds that you’re just going to have to tear down anyway? Don’t you already have enough to do?
