  • 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. The only tools that will be required are a sharp pair of scissors, a marker and possibly a small rubber mallet.

  • What are Plantation Shutters

    Posted on April 10 2019

    Different parts of your home may require different window treatment considerations. North-facing windows may be colder and experience more wind. West-facing windows can be hotter with later direct sunlight. Cafe style shutters are a workable solution to the evening sun. The louvers in the bottom half of the shutter close independently from the top half. The bright sun is blocked at eye level, and the top louver allows ample light to stream in. Windows closest to the street may be noisier. Your window installation advisor can answer all your questions.v

  • New Vertical Blinds & Window Coverings in our Showroom

    Posted on March 20 2014

    Sometimes we get so busy installing and repairing other peoples window treatments we forget to take care of and upgrade ours in the showroom.  I’ve got a couple of blinds that I’ve made fun of for years that I’m not going to miss one bit.  We were joking the other day that one reason why folks are so happy with their new blinds is that after seeing the showroom sample their expectations were blown away.  We had this ugly black and yellow honeycomb with cord locks on it that drove me crazy.  First off, we won’t even sell a blind with a cord lock, and second, nobody orders black or yellow honeycombs.

  • Hunter Douglas Solera is fantastic!!

    Posted on December 28 2013

    The newest edition to the Hunter Douglas family is the Hobbled Roman Shade called the Solera.  It is beautiful, elegant, and easy to operate.  What I really like best about it is the way it compacts so neatly at the top head rail when it's open, unlike traditional romans that have a lot of "stack."  It comes in light filtering and room darkening options.  And similar to the honeycomb's design, it has pockets that are designed to make the shade more energy efficient.  I just ordered a Solera sample for our showroom this and should have it up next week.  Stop by the showroom and have a look at all our products on display, or as always we'll bring the samples and come right to you.

  • Sunscreens and Roller Shades, always a great option

    Posted on October 23 2012

    Roller shades also known as Sunscreens are an excellent product that work in every room in the home or office.  At AAA Blind Factory we carry the best products from Hunter Douglas, Comfortex, Phifer Sheerweave, and Mermet.  Roller shades come in so many different styles, colors, and weaves ranging from blackout to a 12% openness factor.  The more openness means the more we can see through them.  A 1% openness means we're blocking 99% of the light but we can still see through the blind when it's down.
