Well I got 2 quotes & my blinds should be installed in a few weeks! Hoping before Xmas. Both quotes were within budget!
We end up going with a company called blinds kingdom.
We chose holland (roller blinds) for the whole house. We end up picking the colour pumice (matches the carpet) & on 6 windows we got the dual blinds with the back blind being a bronze chocolate colour to match the jasper window frames!
Some pics of what we chose!
Update on fencing: finally found a fencer! They will be going up early jan ;-) can't wait!
