Convenience Has Never Looked So Good

Window coverings used to fit into a few simple categories: blinds, curtains, shutters, shades. Nowadays, with advances in technology and automation, the possibilities are endless, and that’s where the experienced design consultants and professional installers at Blinds & Designs of Florida come into play.


            For almost a decade, Blinds & Designs has helped countless homeowners with their window covering needs, and it’s not just about aesthetics and privacy anymore. It’s also about convenience. Now, thanks to smart-home technology, you can open and close your shades or blinds with a touch on a smartphone or tablet, or a shout out to Alexa or Siri — anytime, anywhere.

            You can program your blinds or shades to open or close at any time of the day — to welcome the morning sun, to provide shade at certain times of day, and to close all your window coverings when the sun goes down.

            “We do a lot of automation,” says Blinds & Designs owner Brian Melle, whose company services the Sarasota/Bradenton area and the neighboring keys. “It’s about convenience and making your life easier. It’s also about protecting your furniture and flooring from sun damage, and it is about protecting the investment you’ve already made. When you come to us, we help you choose the right products for the right windows for the right reasons. And it’s going to look great!”

            Brian is understandably proud of the high-quality products and superior service that Blinds & Designs provides to their satisfied customers, but he is equally proud of his employees.

            “I’m passionate about what we do,” Brian said, “and I can’t brag enough about all the people who work here. We have people who have been with me for eight plus years, and our installers work directly for us; they are not subcontracted out. That is an important distinction. We want our clients to know that we are here for them. We’re not an ‘install and see-you-later’ business. You can call us!”

            And Blinds & Designs’ customers do just that. Referrals and repeat customers are a big part of their business. One client has had Blinds & Designs do all the window coverings in four homes in the past nine years!

            In their Sarasota showroom — the largest of its kind in the
area — you can take a look at countless options. As a competitively priced, full-service window covering store, Blinds & Designs offers every possible option for your windows: motorized blinds, plantation shutters, shades, drapes, and curtains. They are also a gallery dealer with Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of window coverings.

            “The most important thing is that we want all of our clients to be happy,” Brian said. “We love what we do, and we’re happy to do it for you.”
