Bayview Blinds, is the only locally owned and operated, full service window covering company serving homes and businesses on Whidbey Island. They are is celebrating 17 years in business.
The company specializes in offering a full service, shop-at-home business. As owners, Garth and Michelle Crisman say, “We bring the store to you!” While the address for Bayview Blinds is Oak Harbor, the showroom for Bayview Blinds is in the van that comes to the customer’s home. The Crismans note that this is much easier for the customers since they can have all the measurements made and check out the sample colors and styles where they will be used.
Their on-site cleaning visits include several free services for their customers including: Takedown and rehanging of blinds and shades, inspection of cords, and tilt gears and cord locks for future function.
Bayview Blinds evolved to this full service operation from Garth Crisman’s earliest job working for a blind cleaning company in Federal Way. After he married Michelle in 1994, he continued working for the company, but he and his wife began to look for somewhere else to live and to establish their own business.
In 1996, Garth and Michele decided that Whidbey Island was the place they wanted to call home, and they moved to a residence just south of Coupeville.
The Crismans originally established Bayview Blinds as an ultrasonic blind cleaning and repair company in Coupeville and operated the business out of their home. The business and the services offered began to grow. They had many repeat customers and referrals. In 2001, they evolved into a full service operation providing sales, cleaning and repairs, eventually moving their office and warehouse to Oak Harbor.
Michelle started out as the Sales Manager, but with two young children, her position changed to Office Manager so that she can take care of a lot of the work from home. She also does sales on Saturdays. Garth does sales, installation, cleaning and repairs. They also have two employees: Kathy is the Office Assistant, and Bill is an installation, repair and cleaning technician.
Bayview Blinds is an authorized dealer and service center for Hunter Douglas, but the business also offers many other brands. Garth and Michelle strongly promote their motto: “Quality window coverings at affordable prices.”
