I moved into a townhouse that had been fitted out by blinds from BUDGET BLINDS. I phoned them and requested servicing on 4 blinds that were a problem. The problems were minor. Budget Blinds had no interest in helping me even though there were at least 22 blinds in my place. In desperation I phoned Ruffell and Brown and even though they probably KNEW they wouldn’t be selling me any blinds (at least for now) the courteous woman arranged for Adrian to come round and fix them for me. This company knows what customer service MEANS. They even fixed someone else’s blinds because they knew no one else would. Nice people! And believe me when it comes to buying some new blinds I won’t hesitate to give my business to them! I would caution anyone using Budget Blinds to understand that all they are interested in doing is selling blinds. They couldn’t care less when it comes to repairing them. Instead of going for the inexpensive solution buy your blinds from a company selling quality products who services what they and even other companies sell.

I was very pleased with the patient explanation I was given of how to raise & lower my blinds.  The installer changed the operation of the blinds over my sink, so I did not have to climb onto the countertops to raise & lower the blinds.

The installer also changed the side on which I pull down the cord on some bedroom blinds over glass doors.  Now the cord is attached to the window frame & is no longer dangling.  This was a kind favour as I really don’t know who originally put the cord on the dangling side when the the glass doors were changed to new ones.
The installer was very helpful, polite, patient, and friendly.

A.J., Many thanks for the great work you did installing the new red drapes in the three rooms in my condo. They look wonderful – they make the rooms really complete and the colour is perfect.

Valerie G. (a very happy customer)

Just a note to say a big ‘thank you’ for the blinds I won in your Hunter Douglas contest. Shauna was a wonderful help. Her choice of style and colour was perfect. Your installer, Ray, did a great job. His careful work in installing the blinds really made them look so nice. Once again, thanks.

I noticed your voice mail message at home after work on the evening of Friday May 20th.  I left very early the next day for a weeklong vacation and was unable to return your call.  When I returned home and finally went through my mail, I saw your card.  So, many thanks for getting in touch.  The curtains are all wonderful and really finish the rooms.  Douglas appears to enjoy his mix of curtains and blinds and I appreciate the return of privacy in the entrance and look forward to retraining a little more heat in that area this winter.

That fabric is lovely.  It blends beautifully with the rooms and holds its folds wonderfully.  I would recommend it and Ruffell and Brown to any and all of my friends and colleagues.  Thank you.

My new drapes have been installed and I am so pleased with them.  The fellow that came and did the installation of both the hardware and the draperie, was so pleasant.  He came (on time)  got the job done, cleaned up after the installation and took away all the old blinds and hardware.  Thanks again it has updated the room, I will certainly be doing business with you again.  A pleasant experience all around.  Sincerely F. MacDonald West Shore.

We are very pleased with the blinds.  They are exactly what was needed to complete our room.

The installation was smooth and quick.  He was very professional.

Thanks for all your help.

My experience with Ruffell & Brown was great, everything worked out fantastic. I am very happy with the products and the service I received.

I am trying to fill out the warranty registration card and I need to state what kind of lift system I have. My invoice does not state the I, it only says cordless lift system. Can you please tell me what system I have. Is it the LiteRise or is it the UltraGlide system.

Thank you!

Judi

I am pleased as punch with my new roller shades. Your sales person & the installer were both very pleasant & a pleasure to deal with. My bedroom is as dark as a cave & I’m getting a much better rest.  Many thanks!

Edith J.

We are very pleased with our decision to purchase our blinds from Ruffell and Brown.  The service that Shauna provided us was excellent and the supply and installation was done ahead of when it was promised.  We are very pleased with the looks, operation and price of our purchase.  We heard of your company through another contractor and are happy with the decision to give Ruffell and Brown our business.

Dave N.

I would like to say thank you so much for the wonderful service we received from Ruffell & Brown. The new blinds in our master bedroom look lovely and truly block out the light. They were exactly as we wanted, and the roller blinds in all our upstairs rooms are a perfect match, and work wonderfully with guests visiting. Betty was very knowledgeable and helpful and the installation was so quick! It was perfect! Thanks again.

Janice and Dan L.

My experience with your representatives and installer was very good, and I thank you. I will not fail to recommend your company to anyone who is interested. Thank you.

Bryan H.

To Cheryl, Adrien and Doug, Just a short note to thank you folks very much for the service I received. The curtains are beautiful. Lots of good comments. Cheryl, you were so kind, patient and gracious with me when I was concerned. Thanks again for the great job you did and you were so helpful. Two words ‘thank you’ does not seem enough for you folks.

Earlier this year I was shopping around for a window covering for my bedroom. I generally do lots of shopping around before I make a decision, just as I did in this case.
Right from my first phone call I found your staff prompt, courteous and helpful. Cheryl Kellett visited me at my home and I would like you to know that alongside her very professional manner she really does bring a very personal touch with her service. I liked her non pressure approach and wealth of knowledge in assisting me to choose the right product for my needs.
Unfortunately after my drapes were hung I noticed oil marks, likely from the sewing machine. I contacted Cheryl and she very promptly came to my home. As a result I was supplied with a new set of drapes though these I was required to hang myself. I was not pleased with the second set of drapes as they were not hanging well or keeping the light out as well. Once again I contacted Cheryl and she had Glenn come out and work his magic. I find the second pair not as spot on as the first pair but can live with them now. I would also like to add that Glenn’s manner and service are also very good.

Despite the blips along the way (I would like to assume they were unfortunate events and not common errors)  I was otherwise very pleased with the service I received and felt I should let you know.

Penny S.

We moved into a condo seven months ago and have used your firm on two occasions.  Cheryl Kellett was exceptional.  Her knowledge of the products and colour suggestions were invaluable.  The installer was very impressive ( carrying one piece up nine floors) and efficient.  Both arrived at the promised time, which was very much appreciated.

It has been a pleasure doing business with you and I will certainly recommend your firm to friends.

Just a note to say thank you for your professional demeanor and the awesome job you did matching blinds to our kitchen. To find a business such as the one you work for was truly a highlight in making our home feel more like a home.  Kind regards.

Joanne & Federico P.

Just a note to say a big ‘Thank you so much!’ to your representative Cheryl Kozak.   We had an appointment with her in our home this afternoon, and were so impressed that I wanted to express our appreciation right away, for her knowledge, consideration and advice.   Unfortunately such professionalism is all too rare these days, and it was therefore all the more delightful to receive such courteous and thoughtful help.

We were also well received when we initially visited your store, and now look forward to the installation of our purchase.   You may be assured that we shall express to others what a pleasure it has been to do business with your company.  Thank you.

Terry & Lita F.

Dear Heather, I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with the drapes and sheers. They look lovely. Thanks so much for your assistance.

Carol and Brian L.

Heather, Thanks so much for your expert advice on budget and window coverings. I love the blinds! They really open up the space and give such a clean, finished look to the rooms

Jan B. P.S. I may keep my house now!

To Bette, Just a note to say thank you for the amazing customer service I received from you regarding my new sheers. You were so great in helping me once we knew the fabric had been discontinued. I LOVE my new drapes!

Tera Z.

Heather, Thank you so much for your help last fall. We’re very happy with how the colours turned out. Sorry this thank you is so delayed. Thanks again.

Jaclin H. and Jerome R.

Barry & I recently had some re-decorating completed by your company and are impressed by the service and workmanship. We had blinds installed and a sofa suite re-upholstered. Your WHOLE team was a pleasure to work with:

Doug who installed the blinds
James and his wife who did the upholstery
Dan handled delivery
Bette Wollner, the salesperson who coordinated the whole job ensuring all was completed right on schedule.
When we have more decorating needs we will not hesitate to contact and work with Bette again.

Marylyne O.

Heather, We absolutely love our blinds! The look fantastic – lots of compliments! Thank you for all your time and attention and everything else!

Dee & Pat P.

Cheryl, Brian and I would like to thank you very much for the great service you provided us! You were delightful to work with, attentive and understood well what we were wanting. The blinds looks great! The colour of the wood blinds is perfect. It gives the feeling I was looking for. Your installer was professional, on time and courteous. And, every blind fit! Job well done Cheryl. I have passed on your name to an acquaintance.

Josée

Debra, You ‘wow’d us all! You were referred to as a ‘comprehensive package’. They asked if I had ever worked with Ruffell & Brown Interiors and I told them my experience (all good) and then one of my students piped up who said she has been twice and both times were amazing experiences! It was very nice reconnecting with you and hope to touch base soon.

Anita

Cheryl, Thank you so much for your help, professionalism, friendliness, knowledge and understanding.

Diane & Bob W.

Cheryl, Darrell and I want to say a huge THANK YOU to you for guiding us through the process of selecting blinds for our house – this was unchartered territory and a little daunting for both of us. Your knowledge of the products, as well as you patience with our questions and changes was really appreciated. The suggestion of the ODL`s, that alone deserves a big thanks – even from Shelby who can continue to scratch at the patio door to go outside – and we don`t have to fear destruction of the coverings.

I would be remiss if I did not say that Jim and Tanya were wonderful. There were very respectful of us as the homeowners but of our home itself while doing the installations. The professionalism and personable demeanour of both you and your installers made the task of outfitting every window in our home virtually painless.

We are THRILLED with all of the blinds/coverings – it makes our house much more homey and private without totally compromising incoming light, which is exactly what we were trying to achieve. Again, thank you all very much. We would recommend you and your team to others in a heartbeat.

Michelle & Darrell

Debra, Thank you so much for helping with the kitchen. The colour and blinds are perfect. We are finalizing new windows, so blinds for the rest of the house will be next up on the list.

Marianna & Nick

Bette, I just want to thank you for the re-covering and re-upholstering of my loveseat. It looks very nice indeed. The family were all home for Christmas and the loveseat was very much admired. It is not easy to get consensus!

Daphne B.

Thank you so much for coming out to our home last year and quoting our house for blinds. It was nice to talk to you again this month and have you re-quote a different style as we were now ready to order the blinds. We appreciate all your help with the quotes and getting it all ordered. Out of all the companies I dealt with you are by far the nicest, most friendly and knowledgeable sales person I have dealt with. Can’t wait for the blinds to arrive!

Jenn I.

You are lucky to have Shauna Scott representing Ruffell & Brown. Shauna was a delight to have come to our house and each time she been professional as well as experienced. This is rare to find these days.

PS. Our roller shade is fabulous, good call on the colour

Thank you for the excellent service. Bette help us select blinds for our bedrooms and Glen did a great install. We plan to order more blinds from you for our living / dining area.

I am extremely pleased with my living room curtains. I also grade your installer at 10 plus.
