About Our Name
Next day, really?
Yes, really. If you order blinds or shades in one of our stores or online, they will be manufactured and delivered to the store
or shipped to you in one business day-subject, of course, to material availability, weather emergencies, or other factors
beyond our control. (For details, see the charts below.)
That's the reason we started Next Day Blinds in 1993: to bring Washington-Baltimore area consumers, for the first time,
premium-quality, fully custom blinds and shades in a day instead of weeks.
As our business grew over the years, we added our own professional measuring and installation team to our integrated sales
and manufacturing model. These additional services have proven increasingly popular, but they do require additional time.
It's a process. Getting premium-quality, fully custom blinds or shades professionally measured, manufactured, and installed starts
with a visit to a Next Day Blinds store or an in-home consultation. Then we work with your schedule to arrange convenient
measuring and installation dates.
For in-home sales, we make every effort to provide installation at your request, up to and including the next day.
Full-service, installed sales through our stores typically take seven to ten business days from start to finish-although we always
try to accommodate individual needs. (Weekend installation dates are in high demand and may not always be available.)
So our name is Next Day Blinds for good reason. And just as we offer more than only blinds, we do more than only next-day delivery.
