We were initially a little hesitant purchasing blinds online, but it turned out to be a great experience. All of the blinds came in a timely manner and they were very easy to install. Customer service was very helpful when we called with some questions. We saved a lot of money as compared to ordering in store and I am very happy with that!
Tips: Order the samples! They deliver quickly and the help you know exactly what you are ordering since they can differ from the picture slightly. Open all boxes before install as the detailed instructions are only included in one box. I used the ones sent in a confirmation email, however the ones included in the shipment were better detailed. It also included tips on how to level and adjust the blinds if they were off. Ours were off and at first we thought they were broken but once we open the last box and found the instructions we were able to easily adjust them. If ordering the black out blinds be aware that some light will come in through the sides if you do not measure perfectly. It is not a bothersome to us but could bother other people. If you want complete black out maybe look at a different option with the side tracks so that light cannot enter there
All around a great purchase and experience! Will recommend and purchase again! Thank you!

I love my new blinds, they were easy to put up and look just as nice as my blinds look that are on my windows on my main floor and those are top notch Hunter Douglas blinds! I would come back and buy my blinds from select blinds again and have already recommended them to my friends.
The blinds are quite easy to install (we had a 93" blind that did require 2 people for the installation). The directions that accompanied the blind were very easy to understand. The light filtering feature, top down-bottom up, was exactly what we were looking for; just the right amount of light while still maintaining privacy. Customer service was top notch! When an issue with the blinds arose, it was dealt with very promptly...they made it right!
Wonderful blinds, great customer service, great product and price. We priced them out at Home Depot and even on sale there, Select blinds were better priced and quality. I loved that they guaranteed the price while I waited for my samples.
very easy to install looks great was shipped right to my door I am very Happy with them

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.
Take the largest of the three measurements.
Write down that size making sure that it is the second number of the measurement. This is the height you will order.
NOTE: Width and length measurements may vary +/- 1/8”
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.
*width and length measurements may vary +/- 1/8”
