  • “They did such a great job on my home. They did all of my window treatments, and they were phenomenal to work with. Awesome!”

  • “I like them enormously! They did shutters for me, and I really like the way they turned out. They were efficient and got everything done in a timely manner, and never tried to up-sell me. They also did some work for my daughter, which turned out great as well.”

Blinds & Designs is one of the Bay Area’s largest independent window covering companies. They’re also Northern California’s biggest independent retailer of Hunter Douglas blinds, the acknowledged leader in window coverings.

“In essence, we provide the best for less, says owner David Farella. “We truly know what we are doing, and we knows the ins and outs of any given window, and how to cover it properly. We listen to the customer, and we do whatever the customer wants.”

“We don’t hard-sell people. I believe that if you provide people with good advice and useful information, the sales will follow.”

Whether it’s a question of light control, privacy, insulation, or simply choosing the perfect fabric and accessories to match your existing decor, Blinds & Designs will address your concerns in a way that will increase your comfort and enhance your home.

“We come out with a van filled with samples of different options, fabrics, and styles,” David explains.

“We listen to what you’re trying to achieve, then discuss all the options, always bearing your budget in mind. We want our customers to make the right decision, so we help them become aware of all the options available to them.”

This customer-focused approach explains why Blinds & Designs has become a favorite of Bay Area architects and interior designers.

Blinds and Designs’ prices are lower than department store prices; closer, in fact, to what you’d pay in “big box” stores where you get minimal service.

Blinds and Designs’ staff take accurate measurements at your home. Then their staff technicians will return to install your new window coverings, and make sure they operate the way they’re supposed to. All their installers are staff employees, they put mitts on the feet of their ladders, they remove their shoes, and clean up after they’ve finished.

“We work in all neighborhoods, and for all budgets.” David explains. “Our goal is to have happy customers because referrals are our main source of new business.”

Based in Burlingame, David and his team of eight designers and installers cover the entire Bay Area.
