SIMPLE FIT CUSTOM SHADES - REVIEW & GIVEAWAY (U.S. Only)

«Oldest ‹Older 1 – 200 of 216 Newer› Newest»



Well I have done it.  I have finally found a product that I can manage to do.  Any of you that have been reading my posts for a while know that I am usually to impatient to wait for my husband to get home to help me.  I almost ruined my first Vinyl Wall Quote due to this problem, among other things!  Well, I got my Simple Fit Redi Shades yesterday and could not wait another few hours to install them....  so I did what I really should NEVER do.  I decided to install them myself, really how hard could it be?  I know all the other blinds in my house took a lot of time, the screwdriver, lots of patience, and finally.... my husband.  However, these are called "SIMPLE fit" so they can't be hard right?
I got the custom shades and everything else out of the box and glanced over the instructions (you all know I don't have the patience to read every word in the instructions either!)

What was needed for installation:
  1. Took the curtains down & wiped off the wall to make sure it was clean where I was going to hang them
  2.  Removed the backing from both ends of the blinds
  3. Held the custom shades where I wanted them and pushed a little button
That was it....  it seriously took about 1 minute, only 60 seconds, to install.....  and I managed to do it all on my own without messing anything up!  Yay!  I won't say that's a first but I can say it doesn't happen often!

Not only was it easy but they look great!  I would love to have Simple Fit on ALL of my windows, they look so nice and keep the room really dark (since we got the black out ones!)  I love my new custom shades!

Check out this video of how easy these are to install





These are Custom Made for you!  They are available for Inside Mount Only so keep that in ind when you measure!  You will need at least 1 1/2'' to 2'' depth to mount them.  Available Sizes are 19'' - 64'' for width (in 1/8'' increments) and 72'' length.   You can get them in cream or white and for light control in light filtering or black out.  Another thing I love about these blinds is that they don't have the cords, etc.  I'll admit it, I am one of those moms... you know the annoying paranoid ones?  Yep, that is me.  We've had enough loss and accident in my family that almost anything can scare me.  Plus, hearing about all the accidents that happens with blinds doesn't help but these blinds don't have the cord.  If you want the blinds up you just push them up AND THEY STAY UP, if you want them down you just pull them down.  How nice is that?!?
Simple Fit also GUARANTEES the shades to stay in your window under normal use & conditions.

** Another major plus?  MADE TO ORDER IN THE USA **  I love anything that supports OUR economy so as you can guess that makes me an even bigger fan!

The Dirty Truth is that Simple Fit Custom Shades are amazing quality, very easy to use, look great, and SIMPLE to install - even for me!
AFTER PICTURE

BEFORE PICTURE


AFTER (With them pushed up)

Those are my before & after pics!  I wish it showed the time stamps on here.  Seriously it shows 3 minutes difference between when I took the picture of before and when I took the after picture...  talk about quick install!  Plus it makes the room look much nicer (ignore the drawings on the wall....  we have chalkboard paint!)

and actually my daughter in law has these in her son's bedroom. Blackouts for four windows. He has a whole wall of windows in his bedroom and could not take naps in there during the summer because it was so bright even with the blinds closed. So she got the blackout blinds and ta da..two hour naps. For myself, I would do the light filtering in snow in my craftroom.

I would love the light blocking white cord free blilds. My 4 year old decided to cut the cords on most of the blinds through out the house - in the middle of the blinds. These would be the perfect solution since there isn't a cord and it may help him not wake up quite so early in the morning.

The Light Filtering Fabric, White, would be perfect for our bay window. We have a mini blind on the large middle window but the 2 side windows have nothing right now because I like the light.

I would go with the Light Blocking Fabric in Natural. Maybe that would help with the floodlights my neighbors have that hit my bedroom window every night. (if they had something that would also block out the rap music at 2am, that would be fantastic...)
