Wow! Simple Fit Shades are Awesome! @simplefit

Moving 10 times in 20 years, I have had my fill of hanging blinds/shades. I detest it! My husband, who has only had to help me do this a couple times, hates it even more. In fact, we haven’t replaced some old blinds in our house. I won’t buy new ones, simply because of the amount of time it takes to hang them. I am sure that they would sit in their packages on the floor for months, even years, before they were hung. And not without a fight, mind you. So, to keep the tension down in our house, I just try not to look at the old ones and hide them behind window treatments.

Then I discovered Simple Fit. A shade that could be hung in minutes with NO TOOLS. Wait, that can’t be right—no tools? I watched this entertaining video:



Wow! Really? This looks too good to be true. It CAN’T be that easy. This looks too good to be true. I had to see it for myself. I ordered a Simple Fit shade for my kitchen window. I read the instructions online for measuring my window and entered the information. Easy enough so far… Then we had to take down the hardware for the old blind. Of course, it didn’t come down without difficulty. The screws were such that the screwdriver wouldn’t stay in them but we eventually got them down. Then, the shade came. I read the instructions—just a few steps. Sounds easy enough, but could I really hang a blind in a few minutes? I convinced my husband that he needed to record this (after threatening him not to zoom in on my butt or other body parts) because if it worked, I wanted proof to show others.  Well, here goes...



I think the video speaks louder than words, but I am going to say it anyway, WOW, THIS IS INCREDIBLE! I LOVE SIMPLE FIT! THEY ROCK! I WANT TO HANG MORE! This took less than a minute!  Even my husband was surprised and impressed.

Here are some other great features about these shades:

• They are a honeycomb design
• Come in various colors
• Custom cut to size
• Choice of light filtering or blackout
• Easily glides open and closed
• No hanging cords so no worries of strangulation for children

OMG! Thanks for posting the video! I also detest window treatment installs! I love every other part of decorating my home and I'm not a do it yourself queen by any means, but I'm not afraid to do or try anything, but I usually just don't look forward to windows your video has me sold it can be done! I am already following you on google, and saw your note on MBC about this giveaway needing a few more entries. I'm totally surprised it doesn't have tons of entries, what a great company, thanks for the introduction and for being brave enough to film yourself using it. I would select the Room Darkening Easy Touch Cellular Window Shade in Dove Grey for my bedroom, my bedding for the holidays has touches of that same grey and I was looking for something to match it locally and couldn't find it!

I like the pleated natural and the original natural. I also like the ones that block the light. I'd get natural for the living room and light-blocking for the bedrooms. I absolutely love these. Love the video too. :-)
