Locally owned, family operated & community strong For the last nine years, proud Rochester residents and owners of Val-U-Blinds, Kristin and Chris Proell, have built Val-U-Blinds into the go-to local resource for high quality, affordable blinds, shades and draperies—for homeowners and businesses. In response to demand from customers for truly unique home accessories, furniture, and more, Chris and Kristin recently expanded their home décor offerings with the launch of a beautiful new showroom. Their store, rechristened Val-U-Blinds & Home Décor, features a designerinspired showroom that is brimming with truly unique home accessories and furniture. In addition to the already huge selection of window blinds, you can now choose from Cambria Countertops and Uttermost/Revelations furniture and accessories.

“With all the options offered by this rich new resource,” Chris says, “we’re excited to put our combined experience to work for businesses and homeowners to make their vision a reality.” The expanded product offerings enable customers to benefit from Kristin’s 30 years of decorating and design experience. In fact, since opening their


doors as Val-U-Blinds, Kristin has built a reputation for helping countless families and businesses select products that are right for lighting, color, budget and design. “Kristin understands design and decorating,” Chris said. “She is the face of our company. She can go to a home or business and provide a free consultation and estimate in about an hour. Kristin carries our product samples and options with her. We aren’t about taking too much time or selling you something you don’t need.” “I make the phone ring, but she’s really the one who makes the magic happen,” he said, stating that Kristin’s design savvy, combined with her genuine desire to turn homeowners’ and businesses’ vision to reality, is the key to Val-U-Blinds success. While the stunning showroom and stylish product offerings are new, Chris emphasizes that the foundation of their business hasn’t changed. “Our goal is to provide confidence and peace of mind through exceptional customer service, product and price,” Chris states. The couple, working with their son, Austin, continue to offer guaranteed lowest price estimates and services. Val-U-Blinds & Home Decor specializes in working on homes and businesses that are either new or in need of a facelift. They also provide services to apartment buildings, large-scale office buildings, small businesses, local contractors, designers and real estate agents. If you have a vision for an interior space that you’d like to bring to reality, Val-U-Blinds & Home Décor should be on your shortlist of companies to call. Chris said he and Kristin love working in Rochester, calling it a great “big, little town” where they’ve lived and worked for the past 28 years. They’re especially proud of, and thankful for, the fact that shopping local and buying local is important to all the businesses that make the community strong.
