I am pretty excited about today’s post. 🙂 I’m sharing all about our new, Select Blinds Roller Shades! Man, what a difference these shades have made in our home! Our windows feel so much lighter and brighter, and these shades were so easy to install. I think each window took less than five minutes!! Let’s take a look at our living and dining room windows before:

When we moved into our home five years ago, we knew we wanted blinds for privacy in the evenings. I found faux wood blinds that I liked at the time, but the longer we had them, the more I felt that they were just too dark. They are actually a dark brown color, but in most photos they almost look black.
The previous owner had installed bamboo blinds in our sunroom and kitchen, and I just love the texture and warmth of that style, however I don’t like the cords. It seems like our boys are always playing with the strings and it still makes me nervous whenever our kids play in the sunroom. I am constantly trying to keep the cords out of their reach.
Enter Select Blinds. This company has so many options and varieties for shades and blinds, it was honestly so hard to choose for our home! When I saw their new Designer Series Light Filtering Roller Shades line, I was intrigued. This series offers a variety of colors and options in terms of shade position and mounting, and I loved the fact that you can choose to have a cord free lift system!
One thing I love about Select Blinds is that they offer free samples. This enables you to see the colors in your home and feel the material before making a purchase. Here are the samples that I ordered before making my final decision –
Gorgeous, right?! For those that might be interested, we ended up going with the color Camel – the sample on top all the way to the right in the photo above. 🙂
We also went with the exposed roll option, but you can choose to have it covered with a fabric wrapped cassette if you’d like.
You’ll notice that the shades do allow in light. Here’s a shot of them completely pulled down –
You can see that while they don’t completely block out all of the sun, they still significantly help to darken the space.
I personally love the fact that theses shades filter the light. At the time that we eat dinner, the sun is blaring through our dining room windows and blinding us. In the past, we always had to close our blinds or pull the curtains and the dining room instantly felt dark and cold. Now we can pull our new shades down and the harsh sun is blocked, but it’s bright enough so that we don’t have to turn every light in the house on!
If the light filtering option isn’t for you, don’t worry! Select Blinds has so many gorgeous blackout options that are similar in style and color. 🙂
I love the warmth and texture that these shades bring to our dining room. I especially love how the shades tie in to all of the other wood tones in this space!
So what do you guys think? I am so in love with these beautiful shades! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
