Karen McCutchan

Karen McCutchan is one of the 3 Family owners of Blinds and Designs having been in business for 25 years.

She enjoys working with clients to optimize those breathtaking views and completes every project by making a beautifully functioning window.  Finding solutions to make that space more comfortable is what makes her days work enjoyable.

When not working Karen prefers to be camping – Camping with Grandsons – even better!  Karen feels a “God placed” calling to care for children and that manifests itself in respite foster care for children in NC as well as volunteering at her neighbor’s orphanage in El Salvador.

Dan McCutchan

Dan McCutchan has been in business with his wife and partner in crime, Karen, since 2004.  You'll occasionally see him gracing the showroom, but his real forte is the blind repair department. If there is a blind or shade that seems impossible to repair, he's the man to call!  When not at work, you can find Dan spending time with his grandkids or on the golf course.
