Downtown Miami Blinds and Shades

The condos are filling up in Downtown Miami and the surrounding South Florida areas.  Brown Design is staying busy installing blinds and shades in all of the newly owned windows!  The great thing about roller shades is that you can roll them up(or push a button if you have motorized shades!), and they are completely out of the way for you to enjoy the view!  Side channels work great with blackout shades if you are one of those Miami people who like complete darkness without light gaps on the sides of the roller shades.  Lots of people in Miami Beach just leave their solar shades down all the time because they stop heat and glare while maintaining the view.  Whichever product you are looking for to finish your windows, Brown Design can install them professionally with out 100% guarantee!  We are licensed and insured to handle any size project in the South Florida area.

Miami, FL Window Treatments

As all South Florida residents know, the summer has arrived, and brought it’s harsh temperatures and electricity bills with it!  There really is no better time for Miami residents to outfit their windows with our proven heat killing shades.  Solar shades have emerged as our best seller because of their ability to cut glare and heat remendously, while still maintaining that South Beach view!  Design wise the look is clean and minimal, but the practical benefits can save you money by making your air conditioner work less.  Brown Design also offers many types of blackout shades to keep the light out altogether!  Nestle down in a Coral Gables bedroom that gets transformed into a dark cave with the touch of a button with our blackout motorized shades by Somfy.  If you prefer curtains or Roman shades we can help you out as well. As always, with great pricing and service!  100% guaranteed installations from Brickell to Sunny Isles, our shades are found all over Miami in residences and businesses alike!


Miami Motorized Shades

Turn off the sun with a click of a button!!!  Motorized shades are great for large window areas or places that are unreachable manually.  They area also quite simply fun to use!!!  At Brown Design we have installed hundreds of motorized blackout and solar shades around Miami and the South Florida area.  We use the Somfy line of motors which is know world-wide as the industry leader for quality and noise control.  All of our Somfy motors come with a 5 year manufacturer warranty.  We can also motorize other products such as Roman shades and cellullar (honeycomb) shades.  If you live in Miami, you may have seen our installations in the Brickell Area restaurant Zuma, or just around the corner at Eastern National Bank.  We have also installed hundreds of motorized shade systems in Miami Beach condos, where glass walls facing the ocean can really amplify the sun.  We also take care of all the wiring with our in-house licensed electrician, which saves money versus the alternative of hiring an outside electrical company!

Custom Banded Curtains

If you can’t find that perfect fabric for your curtains, why not design your own?!  Our seamstresses can combine several fabrics to make banding of any size so you can achieve the exact look you want.  Our standard two-tone look usually constitutes a light neutral tone fabric for the top two-thirds of the curtain, while using a nice popping color for the lower one-third.  another alternative is vertical banding on the leading edges of the curtains(for a pair that would mean where the two panels meet-from top to bottom.  We like to use a 4 or 5 inch banding for this style.  We have been recently fabricating and installing a lot of banded curtains in Miami lately and the finished product has been fabulous!  This picture shows a gorgeous triple-toned curtain designed by Mary Azar over at Fine Line Furniture in Coral Gables.  Check out their website here:

Blackout Shades Miami

Not surprisingly, one of the most requested products that we sell here at Brown Design is blackout roller shades. The morning sun in Miami can be brutal, especially if you live on the beach! We offer several different fabrics to use with our shades, as well as side channels and fascia covers which go the extra mile blocking out light on the sides and top of our shades(see picture of our great way of dealing with blacking out corners!). Not only do they block light, but blackout roller shades also act as a great insulator against heat, saving you money on your electrical bill every month. It makes a nice afternoon nap even that more relaxing when you can just lay down in the bed, hit the remote control, and have our super quiet Somfy motors put the shades down for you!!! So call us in Miami or send us a request via the website link if you would like to set up a free estimate for blackout roller shades!

Wood Blinds in Miami

Wood blinds are one of the more classic ways to cover a window. They are very economical and can really put the finishing touch on a room if coordinated correctly–practically like adding new furniture!!! Brown Design offers both real wood and faux wood(for humid areas to resist warping). Wood blinds are very good insulators against heat or cold, and can be either tilted or raised completely up to let control light. These products can usually be installed within 1 week from date of deposit in the Miami and South Florida area!

Get your blinds for the Miami summer!

Yes it looks like we are getting an early summer here in Miami! That means time for some nice solar shades or blackout curtains to stop that hot sun that’s been blasting through your window in the morning!!! Our solar shades come with a lifetime guarantee on the lifting mechanisms, so you can count on the quality of all the blinds we sell to our Miami customers.
