A well-done window treatment can transform an entire room and nobody knows that better than Rebecca Greene, co-owner of North County Blind Company, Inc. Whether it’s roller shades or billowy drapes in designer fabrics or fresh white, plantation shutters, the window covering is “ like the cherry on top of the ice cream,” she said. “ The finishing touches.”

North County Blind Company staff members considers themselves home beautification experts and the company has been a mainstay in Encinitas for the last 25 years in the Von’s shopping center on the west side of El Camino Real.

Greene’s husband Jeff founded North County Blind in 1985 and she came on board in 1991, previously she had nothing to do with the business. It quickly became work she enjoyed.

“I just love the business,” Greene said. “I love the design, I love the people, it’s a great group of people I work with and we have the best clientele in the world.”

Jeff passed away five years ago and Rebecca has kept the business going strong.

Clients can come in the showroom and see what is available or the North County Blind crew will also go out to the home to make suggestions. Customer service is paramount, she said, as they think outside the box and really find the best solutions to all kinds of different scenarios.

Their designers can completely makeover a room—in addition to blinds they do drapes, upholstery and bedspreads.

Greene said that they always try to make sure their designs are practical, that shades and drapery don’t keep people from being able to use windows or doors.

“We specialize in happy clients,” Greene said. “We want to make them happy no matter what.”

Something Greene is very proud of is North County Blind’s specialization in motorization. She said co-owner and sales consultant Chris Tate is an expert and can motorize anything—shades and blinds can be raised or lowered at the push of a button and can even be programmed to move whenever the sun hits the windows.

“We love to motorize,” Greene said.

In addition to being beautiful, their products can also serve a purpose. North County Blind sells Hunter Douglas’ energy-efficient Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades, which help insulate the home to reduce heating and air conditioning costs. Through December 2011, people can be eligible for a federal tax credit if they buy the energy-efficient shades.
