Remember window coverings – planning ahead

One thing we have noticed happening often is that folks buy a new home and they love their beautiful open windows until that first night they go to bed or use the bathroom and realize … “We are on display to everyone!!” That’s when we get the call. “We need help!”

Plan ahead and this won’t happen to you. Here are some time-lines to consider when it comes to custom window coverings:

Wood and Faux-wood blinds – 10-14 days


Shades of any kind (non-motorized) – 2 1/2 – 3 weeks


Plantation shutters – 4-5 weeks



Wired motorized systems – best to pre-wire during construction. The shades can take 3-5 weeks for final delivery once windows are ready to be measured.

So, plan ahead. Give us a call at 770-512-0206 so we can help you make every night including your first one a beautiful and enjoyable night!

Atlanta Discount Blinds

As we move into 2016, it seems the worst is behind us. From the debacle of 2008 we have crawled our way out of the quagmire of the great recession and are proud to say, “We’re still here!!”motowireless_powerrisetwoone_livingroom_2

That’s more than I can say for many of our former competitors. Sure, we have had to make some drastic changes in order to roll with the times, however; our measures have worked and we are now better than ever. 2015 was stellar and 2016 looks fantastic.

Since 1994 ABS has been helping regional folks with Affordable Blinds & Shutters. Atlanta blind and shutters customers are still seeking us out.
