I shopped at Home Depot, Lowe’s, Costco, and some Colorado Springs window covering stores and found that Colorado Custom Blinds had the best prices and service. Malia has top quality window coverings at great prices and she stands behind them. I would recommend Colorado Custom Blinds highly!

The care & attention to detail from Colorado Custom Blinds was top-notch. Malia visited our home numerous times to help us select the perfect blind for each window. She also updated us frequently during the order & delivery process. Her passion for perfection shows in her enthusiasm and desire for customer satisfaction. The installer was professional, courteous, and gave us some helpful tips on making our blinds last longer.
Colorado Custom Blinds was also able to beat the price of the big box stores while offering a more extensive selection of brands and designs – all with superior customer service. We highly recommend Colorado Custom Blinds.

Dear Malia and Colorado Custom Blinds, Shades and Shutters,
Thank you so much for your help in replacing all our window coverings after the Waldo Canyon Fire. Your knowledge, experience,and patience made an overwhelming task doable. We really appreciated that you could bring samples right to our home so we could see them in our surroundings in natural light. Your knowledge of the products really helped us find just the right blinds for each room, and the installer did a wonderful job. We are extremely pleased with how everything looks and the quality of the products. You have our gratitude and highest recommendations.

Malia provided me with excellent service. I tried to cancel her appointment as I had received a bid by the designer that my builder uses and a bid from Costco. I was busy and thought that as the two bids came in very close to the same number that I did not need a third bid. Malia talked me into letting her still give me a bid and worked around my busy schedule. For the same blinds she did indeed beat the other two bids that I had received by a significant amount. Then Malia mentioned that she carries an additional line of blinds that are very nice, less money that the ones I was looking at. She did tell me there were less color choices. Turned out I found colors I really like with the second line. I choose them and placed my order, this save me an additional significant amount of money. When the blinds arrived, I loved them. I am very happy with the quality. The installer that Malia uses was excellent. He had my blinds up and installed in a short amount of time. Malia was easy to work with and provided a quality product at a good price. I would highly recommend her.
Malia Alstrom from Colorado Custom Blinds did an excellent job assisting us with obtaining window coverings for our living room and master bedroom. She listened to our requirements and offered us several options to meet our needs.
There are so many window covering options that it is overwhelming. Malia’s knowledge and expertise to match our requirements with the best possible window coverings was much appreciated. She also provided us information on after market handles for our windows that would allow the window coverings to roll down with no obstruction.
Malia provided us with an accurate estimate as to the delivery of the window coverings and scheduling the installation was very easy. The installer was professional and efficiently installed the window coverings. He spent time with me to make sure I understood how the remote control device worked, showing me the options on rolling one window covering or several window coverings at once. Malia then followed up to make sure the installation was complete with no issues. I am very happy with the level of service and professionalism. We are already working with Malia again for a special type of window covering for a French door, using Smart Glass technology. I would certainly recommend Malia and Colorado Custom Blinds to anyone looking for window coverings.

Malia with Colorado Custom Blinds was an invaluable and professional partner to work with while we were building our new home. With just a few weeks before the home was to be finished, she came out to the site to personally measure all our windows. She also brought shade, wood and color samples to help decide which would be best taking into account light distribution, privacy and our personal style. She made the process easy without the high pressure we have received from past vendors. Our large order arrived on time with no problems and was exactly what we expected. We chose to install them ourselves and it was quick and easy. We highly recommend Malia Alstrom and Colorado Custom Blinds-my husband and I couldn’t be happier with our purchase and the overall experience.
We just moved into our new home after losing ours in the Waldo Canyon Fire. Colorado Custom Blinds really helped us out with beautiful window shadings and honeycomb tri-lights. Malia was great to work with from the get-go. She listened to our needs, worked within our budget, and offered useful suggestions. We received our new blinds in less than two weeks. Our entire house-full of blinds were professionally installed in under 2 hours. We are so happy with the quality, service and product warranty. We highly recommend choosing Colorado Custom Blinds.

If you want any kind of blind work done in your home, you want to call Malia at Colorado Custom Blinds. What a first class business Colorado Custom Blinds performs. They are nothing short of OUTSTANDING. Always on time, extremely professional and knowledge about blinds that far surpasses many of the other blind providers in the Colorado Springs and Denver area. Malia and Colorado Customs Blinds quickly looked at what blinds I had that were not operational, and either repaired them on the spot, or worked directly with Hunter Douglas and had the blinds mailed back for prompt warranty work. I paid a fraction of what it could have cost had someone who was not truly knowledgeable about blinds. I also received an estimate for some new blinds that I am considering putting into the home. These are very nice thermal honeycomb blinds. While blinds are not cheap, expect to pay a couple thousand dollars from any reputable blind, company. Malia and Colorado Custom Blinds beat all other quotes hands down. Just a first class service that is dependable and reliable.
Everything was just fantastic. Malia is quick to book appointments, comes with all the samples, does not automatically suggest the most expensive option, and measures at the appointment. No pressure at all, yet she is extremely knowledgeable about what will work best for your windows. And, you don’t have to wait for someone to come on a second appointment to measure. I was very impressed with how many measurements she took for each window. We have all non-standard size windows and lots of them. Some of the windows are in groups where we could use just one large blind for the entire opening. Every one of the 25 blinds and the skylight duet is a perfect fit. She was so patient in my quest for the perfect shade of white to blend with our white trim and moldings. We have a lot of color in the house, so didn’t want competing color in the blinds, but there is no such thing as just “white.” She must jump to the head of the line at the Hunter Douglas manufacturing plant because the speed of delivery after an order is just phenomenal. We chose HD over the other excellent brands she carries because it worked best for us. We waited over two months for Clopay carriage-style garage doors to be made, but the blinds took only a few weeks. Her installer, Mike, is wonderful. He is very neat, efficient, pleasant, and does a great job. If we ever need a blind, shade, or shutter again, I would not contact anyone but Malia. We’ve gone the cheap provider route and the DIY route through the big box store. There is a huge difference in functionality and appearance when you do it the right way. We couldn’t be happier and I would never hesitate to recommend Colorado Custom Blinds.

Malia helped me select style and color. This was a huge help, as I’m
terrible at choosing colors. The blinds arrived quickly. The
installer did a great job, too. I’m very happy overall and I will use
this company again. I highly recommend Malia and Colorado Custom

We spoke on the phone, and I told Malia I was looking for Roman shades for our family room windows and a new vertical for the patio door there. We set a time, and she told me she would call on her way, as she was stopping by after another appointment. She was prompt and well-prepared. We discussed the Roman shade application and price, and she asked questions to learn more about how we would use the room, and what might work best for us. We settled on duette blinds after going through the options.
We mentioned that we also had a broken wooden blind in the living room, as well as a patio door that had horizontal blinds which were not working well for us. She took a look, gave us pricing, and we decided to add that to the project. We also talked about some future needs we have in other areas of the house, and she gave us ideas for those.
We expected the blinds to be installed around, or just after Christmas, but Malia called and said they came in early. Her installer would be in the area within the next couple of days, so she scheduled him to complete the installation. The installer was also prompt and prepared. We opted to pay a little extra per blind to have the installer take down the old blinds, which we felt was well worth it. What took him minutes to do, would have taken us much longer. The installation went very smoothly, and he was done with two patio doors and five windows in about an hour. The blinds look great!
We were very pleased, and will call Colorado Custom Blinds when we are ready to do the next area of our house.
Malia bent over backwards to work with my husband’s and my schedule, meeting us after work to show us her product line and get measurements for our window treatments. I was very impressed in the tiny detail that she took measurements herself. The two other local businesses we investigated either took “rough” measurements or guessed, informing us that if they won the bid, we would need another appointment to have their installers take the actual measurements. In addition to that inconvenience, I assumed that their initial bids might be off as a result. Malia provided us with an excellent quote on plantation shutters for the entire house, to include a custom one for our huge eyebrow window in the master bedroom, and she outbid her competitors by a significant margin. Upon earning our business, she stayed true to her bid even upon discovering that a few details would cost extra.
She was continuously helpful and responsive, sending us many updates via email as we were waiting for our shutters to be shipped from the manufacturer. Upon arrival, she discovered that one of the shutters was damaged (it was functional but had cosmetic flaws) and immediately ordered a replacement and informed us of the situation. She got the installer to come out as soon as we were available, and even installed the damaged one temporarily, which was key since it was destined for the baby’s room. After the replacement arrived, she again got the installer out within days to replace the damaged one at no cost, and only requested the final payment after we had verified that we were satisfied with the entire installation.
Since installation, we have gotten tons of complements from our neighbors. We love the finished and elegant look of our rooms, and greatly appreciate the near-black out quality of the shutters as it really helps with our two kids’ nap times. In addition, we’ve been informed that the product we selected has a lifetime warranty, which hopefully we will not have to use but gives us peace of mind.
All in all, I can’t say enough good things about Malia–she is prompt and professional, has excellent customer service, and her prices at least for plantation shutters can’t be beat. We are completely satisfied with our experience and will likely call her again after our basement is finished to help with our window wells.
