For the last several years, we’ve been slowly amassing a large collection of Bali Blinds for almost all the rooms in our home. We’ve dabbled in several styles, including tailored Roman shades, and solar and roller shades, and depending on the room, we’ve also covered an array of control options, from cordless to motorized! Having navigated the Bali Blinds website countless times, I can’t begin to tell you how simple it is to go from an idea to the final execution. Bali makes the process painless, and they offer an array of helpful tips, links and inspiration to get your window treatment project off the ground. Today, I’d love to share with you all the ways you can use and navigate the Bali Blinds website as the greatest tool in your window treatment arsenal!
Start by ordering your 10 free swatches. You’re in your bedroom/living room/dining room/insert-room-of-choice here, and your thoughts are running wild with all the ways you can dress up that naked window. You’ve decided that a casual Roman shade would make your heart sing, but you’re stuck on which fabric to choose. Bali Blinds offers up to 10 free swatches for your project, so take this opportunity to choose a wide selection of fabrics. When they arrive in the mail, look at them in your home’s lighting. Hold them up to the walls. Eliminate the ones you can live without. Finally, take on the hardest task of all—narrowing your choice down to the winner!
Watch a video that walks you through the measuring process. Once you’ve chosen your fabric, you’ll need to decide between an inside or outside mount. With this in mind, Bali Blinds offers helpful videos that share how easy it is to measure your windows properly. Remember, you don’t want to add to/subtract from your measurements; Bali Blinds will account for the proper length and width of your new shade.
Choose your control option. On every product page, you’ll find a detailed list with images depicting the control options offered for that style. If you’re considering motorization (an option we can’t recommend highly enough!), you can find more information on that right here. While you’re choosing your controls, you can also view other options available to you, such as decorative trim and a valance.
Ready to buy? Start right here! Now that you’ve measured your window and decided on a fabric, style and control option, you can purchase your new blinds or shades online. If you prefer an in-person experience, you can always pop into a store.
Your blinds have arrived, and it’s time to install! Don’t stress. Installing Bali Blinds and Shades is surprisingly simple with the right tools. I like to spread out all the contents that come with my window treatment so that I can verify I have everything I need. While there are instructions included with your purchase and directly on the Bali Blinds website, you might be more comfortable watching the videos available on the site.
Refer back to the Bali Blinds website for cleaning tips. There’s a great chart on baliblinds.com that helps you to understand the best methods to keep your window treatments clean and fresh. Depending on the style you’ve chosen, you’ll want to be mindful of the ways you tackle the cleaning routine. We’ve even shared a few tricks we’ve implemented over the years as well.
It’s always worth it to take any extra time you need to ensure you’re purchasing window treatments that work for you, your home and your preferred environment. Bali Blinds has a valuable website that will guide you through every step of that process!
