Every journey begins with a first step, so let’s walk through the Select Blinds customer journey together starting with . . .

1. Measuring Your Windows

The first step (or one of the first steps) you will take with your DIY project is to measure your windows. We custom make your window coverings and need as accurate a measurement as you can provide to ensure the best fit. Don’t worry, it’s easy!

Maybe at this point, you will have your window coverings already selected, maybe not. No matter.

Having accurate window measurements will not only help with a good fit, but also helps determine how your window covering is priced, and will also help determine the variety of options available to you.

2. Choosing the Best Window Coverings for Your Needs + Ordering Samples

You will want to select the right window coverings to meet your unique needs. Are you looking for energy-efficiency? Are you needing a dark cool room for your child’s naptime? Maybe you want a quieter work environment for your home office. Are these window treatments replacing older ones, or are they for a brand new home?

Here are some things to consider:

  • Which room are you needing new blinds, shades, shutters, or curtains for?
  • How many windows are you needing to cover?
  • What unique needs does your room (or rooms) have? Privacy? Quiet? Is it a child’s room? Talk to one of our design consultants for free, and get some input and tips for what would work best for what you’re trying to accomplish.

Once you have a window treatment style and color/design/texture selected, be sure to order free samples! You can order up to 15 free samples daily, shipped to your door for free, and on top of that, ordering samples ensures you can lock in a daily promo for up to 30 days after your samples arrive.

3. Finding the Best Price

So many online blinds stores, so little time. There are any number of brands out there, so how do you know which is best? Should you go with a full-service brand (which includes measuring and installation), or should you go with more of a DIY brand?

Custom window treatments are priced based on the cost of materials–the larger the dimensions, the higher the cost. Most brands of window treatments offer many of the same styles and types, and don’t vary very much in terms of quality. Retailers tend to offer a broader range of differences, including customer experience. The “best” choice for a homeowner ultimately depends on his or her desired result and budget. Keep in mind that measuring, installation costs, and shipping fees can quickly add up toward the final price tag for your home design update project. 

The average cost of hiring help for blinds installation can average you around $700 for your entire home. Cut out the middleman! Doing your own measuring and installing yourself is the most efficient and cost-effective way to approach the dressing of your windows. Spearheading your own project and doing it yourself doesn’t require any expertise or special tools. It’s super easy, and we’re here to make it even easier! And remember, any promo you see on any given day? Just order free samples, we’ll ship them to you for free, and you can lock in any promo for 30 days after your samples arrive. We want to make sure you get the best price possible.

We offer you all kinds of helpful online resources for easy-to-follow instruction, and hassle-free measuring and installation. Plus you’ll have access to our top-notch customer service team, along with free design consulting, 7 days per week!

Many companies also charge shipping fees, especially for “oversized” items.  At, you always get free shipping to anywhere in the contiguous United States, no matter how large your items are!

What Protections Do You Have if You Submit Your Window Measurements Incorrectly?

We’ve even got you covered if you should happen to submit inaccurate window measurements. We call it our Select Blinds F.I.T. Guarantee.

If you make any kind of mistake when measuring your windows and your custom coverings don’t fit, simply call us at 888-257-1840 and we’ll remake that exact same product for you for free (at your new size) within 30 days of the date your order was delivered.* You just cover $10 for shipping, and we’ll get your new remake right out to you.

Note that if the dimensions of the remake are larger than your original blinds, there may be a small price increase due to material costs. Remakes under this guarantee are limited to one (1) per order and a total of four (4) per household per customer lifetime, whether for the same or different product(s). Any mis-measure remakes after that will be made at customer cost for the price of the original order, including any discounts, plus an additional 10% off. Guarantee excludes motorized products, drapery/curtains and shutters. See our Select Blinds F.I.T. Guarantee fine print.

What is Shipped With Your Select Blinds Product?

We’ve been able to make your installation process as easy and friendly as possible, because of all our experience working with customers just like you! You’ll be able to enjoy your beautiful new window treatments more quickly.

We include with your product:

  • Effective packing to ensure against damage during shipping
  • All the required hardware (and much optional hardware)
  • Easy-to-follow instructions and warnings (when in doubt, just go to our website for downloadable instructions, videos, or to, for your Select Blinds product name + installation)

Installation and Final Results

The only tools you’ll need include a pencil, measuring tape, screwdriver, possibly a stepladder, and a drill and drill bit. For more involved installations, you may find an extra set of helping hands work out best.
