**Sundale Industry Research, 2018

An 11.9 Billion Dollar Industry

Analysts predict significant retail window industry growth again in 2020 with considerable increase in the consumption of blinds and shades through 2022.

  • 6 out of 7 window coverings sold are in established homes
  • 3-5 years is the lifespan of an average homeowner’s window coverings

Budget Blinds Stands Out
We pioneered the shop-at-home business model for the window coverings industry. Since then, many others have copied our model, but no one has our customer reach, depth of product, or marketing power.

Our Difference vs. Our Competitors

  • Extensive customer reach
  • Depth and breath of product assortment
  • Unparalleled in-home customer experience

Our Differentiators

As the #1 provider of custom window coverings in North America, Budget Blinds is a widely recognized brand and proven franchise business model for over 25+ years. Here is how we compete in the window coverings and franchise space:

  • Passionate and dynamic company culture
  • No inventory and low overhead
  • Exclusive territories
  • Flat royalty and marketing fees
  • Home-based
  • Simplistic business model
  • Flexible schedule
  • Multiple revenue streams with our Commerical Division and Smart Home Collection

We Keep You A Step Ahead Of The Competition

Strong Vendor Program
As the largest custom window covering company in North America, we have more buying power, and more choices of blinds, shades, shutters and drapes. Our strong relationships with leading manufacturers give our franchisees a competitive edge over local businesses: a very exclusive combination of design-driven products, expert service, no-surprises pricing, and our no-questions-asked warranty ― the best in the business.

Product Assortment
Our vast product assortment not only includes a variety of custom blinds, shades, shutters and draperies in the latest styles, but we also offer bedding, pillows, rugs and accessories. From our exclusive Inspired Collection line to DesignINK, our custom fabric design program, to our Smart Home Collection, we have the perfect solution to meet the unique needs of our customers that they won’t find anywhere else.

We’re committed to bringing consumers the latest in smart home technology with customized solutions for the way they live. From our partnership with Lutron® to bring automated shades and lighting, to wireless sound solutions, we pride ourselves in continually seeking out the best innovative solutions for our customer base.

Budget Blinds partners with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

With the buying power of our parent company, Home Franchise Concepts, we partnered with HGTV’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition to drive strong brand awareness and equity for the Budget Blinds name and to further reinforce that we are the #1 provider of custom window coverings in North America.
