We offer free design consultation, measurement and estimates. We are a certified Hunter Douglas installer and will personally install any window treatment you purchase.
What do you charge for a design consultation?
Design consultations, measurements and estimates are FREE from Just Right Blinds. We bring the showroom to you and help you select the styles, fabrics and colors that work with your windows and your décor. We professionally measure and give you a detailed estimate at no cost or obligation.
Can window treatments help lower my energy bills?
Yes! Window treatments can help lower both your heating and cooling costs. Studies show that a home can lose up to 50% of its heating and cooling energy through its windows. Many of our window treatments help insulate windows, such as honeycomb shades with their cellular design that helps prevent heat loss in winter and block out heat in the summer. All of this can mean lower utility bills with year-round comfort.
Can blinds protect my furniture and other home décor from sunlight?
Hunter Douglas window treatments from Just Right Blinds help block the sun’s UV (ultraviolet) rays to protect flooring and furnishings from fading and other damage. UV protection is the measure of the percentage of potentially damaging ultraviolet radiation that is blocked by a window treatment. Non-sheer window treatments typically provide 98% to 99% blockage. Even sheer window treatments, like Hunter Douglas Silhouette window shadings, block up to 88% of UV rays with the vanes open.
Are the window treatments you offer safe for children and pets?
All Hunter Douglas window treatments are designed with safety in mind. From cordless and motorized operating systems to retractable lift cords, cord tensioners and wand controls, Just Right Blinds & Shutters offers blinds with a wide array of features for enhanced child and pet safety.
I want privacy but I also want to let light inside. What options do you offer?
Just Right Blinds offers lots of ways to control both light and privacy! Hunter Douglas blinds and shades are available in a variety of fabric opacities from sheer to light-filtering semi-opaque to complete room darkening options. Choices such as Silhouette Window Shadings allow precise control of light with “floating” vanes that tilt to control light and view-through. Screen shades are offered with openness values ranging from 14% to 0%. Independent operable liners can be attached to woven woods for precise light control. Just let us know your needs and we have a choice that will work for you.
What warranties do you offer?
When you purchase your window treatments from Just Right Blinds you purchase peace of mind. All Hunter Douglas window treatments are covered by a lifetime limited guaramtee. Motorization components are covered for 5 years after purchase. If your blinds or shutters need to be repaired, shipping charges and service charges for removal and re-installation apply. Contact Hunter Douglas at 1-800-789-0331 for further information about the guarantee.
How can I be sure my window treatments will be professionally installed?
The person who helps you select and then measures for your window treatments is the same person who installs them. Todd Zimmerman, the owner of Just Right Blinds & Shutters, is a professionally trained and certified Hunter Douglas installer. He will install your treatments to the correct specifications and with a precise fit to your windows. He will also consult with you prior to installation about any special situations such as window shape, trim features or hardware that affect fit and appearance. And, installation of the treatments you purchase is provided at no extra charge.
After I make a purchase, how do I clean my window treatments?
Just Right Blinds provides high quality window treatments made for a lifetime of wear-resistant, trouble-free performance. Many Hunter Douglas shade fabrics and shutter materials are specially treated to repel dust and dirt, and most do not require frequent cleaning.
For light cleaning, you can use a hair dryer turned to a cool setting or gentle vacuuming to remove dust. A feather duster removes dust from wood blinds or shutters. Composite blinds or shutters can be gently cleaned with soap and water.
Just Right Blinds provides ultrasonic cleaning for those times when your fabric blinds have become stained or have stubborn dirt you can’t remove. Ask us about prices for cleaning, removal and re-installation.
