Cordless window blinds for the master bedroom are something that I’ve been thinking about for a long time. Another project that was put on the back burner, but with a total master bedroom and master bathroom refresh I decided to do some research. If you’re in the market for new blinds, be sure to read through, even if my first image isn’t one of my usual pretty shots!
Where do you go first when you’re researching products for your home? Is it Google, Pinterest, blogs (like mine;-), Instagram? I do it all and would like to think that I’m a well informed shopper after these tons of online years. I do read reviews on Google and Amazon but honestly I feel that they can be skewed, since many folks only leave reviews if they have a complaint. So I’m letting you know that I’ve partnered with Select Blinds for this post and they have been nothing short of wonderful to work with!
My virtual room design with Modsy got me thinking about sheers, since we have such beautiful views! The cellular blackout blinds that we had previously were old and tattered. I love vintage…not a good way with those.
Phone pic…don’t judge, but these old things were nasty and had their day! I also wanted to get away from cords, as they knot and tangle and can be dangerous. We have 3 dogs that jump up on the window seat and I always had to be mindful to tuck up the cords so they didn’t become entangled. Oh…the new ones are SO MUCH BETTER and I have some more shots to show you.
Same window and let the lizard hunting commence in full force for Bartley and Darby. We ordered the same shades for all of the windows and the French doors. What I chose were the best of both worlds that I found doing my research. These are a combination of blackout shades and sheer. The Premier Double Cell Blackout TriShades are perfect for a bedroom, as you can use the blackout feature at night and have the sheer during the day. You get natural filtered light or full blackout together in one shade.
The French doors face the pool area and have a great view, but the sheers really help cut down on the glare! On the right I have the blackout portion pulled up partially to show you how it looks. Fully closed it’s pretty dark, but you might notice new drapes (with a secret) that I’ll talk about soon. Yes, I know…they need to be pressed and steaming didn’t do them justice.
I ordered the Magnolia color, which is the whitest white and goes well with my decor. Before I decided on the color I asked Select Blinds to send some samples. The blinds were really easy to install and it took my husband about 2 hours to do the 7 windows and and 4 French doors. They go up and down with ease and time will tell how well they wear, but so far…so good. The prices at Select Blinds are really so reasonable and they pretty much carry everything in terms of blinds and shades. If you have any questions they are very helpful and also feel free to reach out to me in the comments!
