The setup required to sync. the remote is a bit clunky. It would be nice to not have to dismount the blind to reset the drive. Note to the company: The instructions to set upper and lower limits are unclear. I suggest a re-write of that section of the installation instructions. Call me if you would like to follow up on this..
I was impressed by the service and promptness of my order. I used the live chat once and I was really satisfied with the service. I even got a refund when the same blind I had ordered went on sale at a lower price.
Generally we like the blinds. One of the blinds was received with minor surface damage, we hoped that it is going to disappear but until now remains visible. Blind with control strings was somewhat difficult to install

I am usually skeptical with on-line shopping but thought I'd take a chance on ordering blinds for 9 windows in our new home. SelectBlinds lives up to everything they advertise and then some. We had one blind that did not fit as the measurement should have been checked near the bottom of the window, I used their chat line to ask what the process would be to get it replaced and it was handled with that rep. I have recommended this site to everyone.

Please be sure to measure exactly as instructed BUT NOT TAKE OFF ANYTHING FROM THE MEASUREMENTS TO ALLOW FOR FREE SPACE since we automatically take deductions from the measurements on your order to provide for this free space.
If you are planning to do a flush mount, please ensure that you have the space required to do so--you'll find the 'Flush mounting space required' under the Features tab for your blinds.
Measure the exact height (top to bottom) from the top inside edge down to the window sill in three places.

Measure the exact width (left to right) of the wooden or metal window frame or how wide you would like the blind or shade to be.
Make sure to measure wide enough as to cover the entire window and provide maximum light gap coverage. Example: If the window opening is 72", it might be helpful to order 76". This will provide 2" coverage on each side of the window.
There is no rule on the width of blinds other than to make sure that it is wide enough to cover the opening.
Fabric will be made at ordered width and headrail will be ordered width plus ¼”
Write down that size making sure that it is the first number of the measurement.
Measure the height you would like the blind to be by measuring top to bottom.
We recommend adding about 3 or 4 inches to this number to insure maximum light gap coverage and to cover the window completely.
Please be sure to know that the height measurement will always include the headrail. Example: if the height ordered is 50” this will be the height including the headrail (from the very top of the headrail to the bottom rail).
You will want to mount the headrail above the window frame. Please make a note that some windows have trim that might interfere with mounting so it's important to measure above the trim if this is the case.
