Default best place around houston to get roller shades for windows?

I have tried Ikea, they're stuff looks cheap and not a whole lot of options in terms of color. Home Depot, little better but still not enough choices. and then 3 Day Blinds which has plenty of choices. They charge about $150 per window.

I was wondering if anyone here knows of a better place who can offer me a good price?

(IIRC you just moved) if youre in a hurry to have privacy with window treatments, go to family dollar or similar places and buy the cheap ones first or buy the temporary(paper) ones from HD. then take your time choosing decorative window treatments

supermac awesome prices compared to 3day blinds! How is the quality on these shades though? The specific type we're interested in is the Solar Shades. Was wondering if they are a good quality compared to the kind offered at 3days blind?

Thanks a lot for the info! and they're in Houston also!

When I lived in Texas I had pleated shades with a metal fabric on the outside to reflect the heat back out of the house and hold in the cold from the AC. They were fabulous and they blocked out light as well.

I have only ordered the samples from that site so far. They seem to be in line with other shades I have shopped for. The site was recommended to me for black out shades for a media room (they are about 1/3 of the price of Hunter-Douglas) by someone who has ordered them and loves them. I was going to go ahead and use them for my media room.

I'd order the samples first, take a look and compare.

BTW Lowes has better selection than HomeDepot when it comes to window treatments.
also note that HOA has bit to say about this. check your HOA handbook. I got a letter from them telling me to remove my reflective window film
