About Us

The Beginning of Bright & Shiny Blinds

John Heintz established Bright and Shiny Discount Blinds in 1999 when he recognized that Chattanooga had a need for a specialist in window treatments.  What was initially a blind cleaning business has since grown into services that include professional consultations, installations, and repairs – from cellular shades, to draperies, to motorized treatments.

Sixteen years later, Bright and Shiny Blinds remains a family-owned and operated business.  We strive to operate with integrity, honesty, and an emphasis on customer care. We are committed to serving our customers’ needs by ensuring competitive prices, professional consultations and installations, and relaxed, friendly interactions. By bringing our showroom to our clients’ homes and doing all installations/cleaning/repairs ourselves, we are able to keep prices low and focus solely on providing our customers with exactly what they want.

We are equally committed to operating our business as ethically and environmentally conscious as possible. That is why we recycle and repurpose all of our materials, use ecologically safe cleaning solution, and donate pre-loved window treatments to our local Habitat for Humanity.

In doing business with Bright and Shiny Blinds, be assured that you will be treated with kindness, respect, and honesty. And you will have beautiful window treatments to show for it.
