SelectBlinds Home Tours: Check out the window coverings our team loves

Our SelectBlinds Team has seen hundreds of blinds and shades throughout the last 20 years. So, when it comes to choosing window coverings for their own home, you can bet they have certain criteria. See which shades a few team members chose and why they love them!

Why You Love Them

Each room has its own design style, and I picked what felt right in each one.

The most important factor aside from look was quality, and given that I work with these products every day, I felt comfortable knowing these would withstand the test of time.

First of all, I LOVE layering. Any chance I get to add a curtain or drape over a woven wood, roller, roman, I will do it. It creates such a completed and luxurious look. Woven woods are very trendy these days. I love the natural look and feel of them, and they play so well into the floral theme in my daughter’s room.

Romans are so timeless, and I knew if we decided to switch out our décor years from now, we could still keep them. The textures on all of these window coverings are so rich, and it isn’t something you can always gauge online. When I walk into these rooms, it feels cozy and like a home, not a house.

It was an easy decision since I’ve been advocating the benefits of cell shades for years. The cell shades, with their light, heat, and noise-blocking abilities, keep things comfortable for my sensitive rescue dogs, and when they sleep soundly, so do we! While I wouldn’t usually advocate that you use cell shades in a bathroom, the Premier series has held up phenomenally.

When we welcome friends and family into our home, the roman shades infuse the rooms with a unique personality and create a warm, inviting ambiance that kind of feels like a big hug. Also, during my work travels, I wanted my home to be a sanctuary of calm and comfort, and the roman shades have been the key to achieving this retreat vibe for me.

This product was recommended by another employee for its overall quality, durability and the color, which also matches the custom cabinet color of our kitchen.

When I remodeled my kitchen, I originally chose to keep the existing store-bought cordless faux wood blinds that never really matched or finished off the room. They were hard to lift and pull down, and we constantly had the valance fall off and hit us as we tried to pull down the blinds. The blades of the blinds sagged and just looked cheap.

These real wood blinds finished off the room. The color was practically a match, easy to install and they move like butta — sooooo smooth. They are so easy to lift that I can use 2 fingers to do it. The valance has added magnets to keep it secure, so we’ll never need to worry about it dropping on us anymore. Definitely worth the investment.

  • Classic Roman Shades in Shoreline in the bedrooms paired with Classic Curtains in White Linen and the office
  • Classic Roman Shades in (discontinued) Dove Grey in the kitchen and in the living room paired with the same curtains.

Why You Love Them

I chose roman shades because I love the warmth they bring to a room. They are available with multiple liner options, which allows me to keep the window coverings consistent throughout the house, while choosing the liner that allows for the perfect amount of light to filter into each room. The blackout liner has allowed for great sleep!

The roman shade in my primary bedroom has the Motorized Upgrade; I love being able to lower and raise the shade with a push of a button, especially because one of the windows is high up and behind the bed which would make other lift systems a bit tricky.

My favorite aspect of the Classic Curtains is that they have helped give the illusion that the window is centered above my bed, when it previously looked very off balance. Most importantly though, I love that all our window coverings are cord-free and safe for our two pups!

  • Double Roller Shades in just about every room: kitchen, dining room, living room, master bedroom, bunny room, and office. My shades’ colors aren’t on the website, but I’d choose Aloof/Soft Mist as a second choice.

Why You Love Them

I love the level of light control I can have. I can choose full blackout, full light filtering, or anywhere in between. I also have the Eve Motorization so they are fully integrated with Apple Homekit and into the rest of my smart home (lights, speakers, and now shades), including schedules.

It’s improved my day-to-day by allowing me to schedule the bedroom blackout shade to raise slowly in the morning to help me wake up naturally.
