  • How to Shorten Window Blinds

    Posted on August 31 2019

    Window Blinds are a commodity that most people own or have owned. You move to a new house and your old windows were longer than the new ones. You bought new blinds and mistakenly got them too long. If you notice that your blinds are bunched up at window sill, you bought blinds that are too long for your window. Most people ignore this. To create a more aesthetically pleasing look with your blinds takes very little time. Wooden, vinyl or plastic horizontal window blinds can be shortened to fit your window frames.

  • Window Treatment Cords & Child Safety

    Just recently I've had a couple customers that have been upset by the fact that we won't allow a free hanging weight on vertical blinds like in the past.

We are mandated to fasten all cords to the wall with a tension pulley.
