- $104 for $300 worth of custom blinds and window shades
The customization process begins with a complimentary in-home appointment with a design consultant, who guides you through your material and style choices. Once you've made your choices, your consultant will place your order. Professional measuring and installation services are required for all orders; measuring and installation not included in this Groupon. An additional $249 fee will apply for all orders less than $1,000, but installation fee is waived for orders of $1,000 or more.
It's not every day that online shopping includes as much personal attention as you get from Stoneside Blinds. In most areas, their online-shopping process starts off with a free house call from a designer, who helps clients pick out materials and styles for their window dressing. Once the client has made their choices, the company can send out teams to measure the window frames and, later, install the final product for a flat fee; fees are waived for orders over $1,000. Their handiwork, and the blinds themselves, are backed by a rigorous guarantee that lets customers change their minds within 30 days and safeguards against defects up to a year later, so customers never have to cover up faulty blinds with a poster of their backyard. The only online part of their signature process, really, is placing the order. Minutes after the order is placed, the team at the production warehouse gets to work making it a reality, whether it's roller shades in a custom fabric, sleek solar shades, or classic wooden blinds.
