| Choosing the Right Window Blinds Company for Your Shades|
Investing in some new window blinds for you home can sometimes be an overwhelming prospect, especially when you consider the huge amount of styles and colours available. Deciding where to buy blinds from is also an important consideration as there are so many different companies to choose from. To help you pick the right window blinds company to purchase your blinds, take a moment to ask yourself these questions...
Are you planning to buy online or offline?
If you’re not used to shopping online then you might instinctively choose to buy your blinds in a regular shop. Although this has its advantages as you can feel the fabrics and get a good impression of colours, you can still have all these benefits shopping online. Usually, an online window blinds company will send out free samples for you so you know exactly what you’re considering. Many offer quick and free delivery so it can be as little as a few days from you making your order to having a new blind installed in your home.
Is the website secure?
When you’re buying blinds online you need to check how secure the website is. Key points to check include whether there’s a working phone number and legitimate address on the website and also if there are any case studies or testimonials as these can all help prove that a company is trust worthy. When it comes to the payment process check that the website is secure by looking for the small padlock which should be displayed in your browser and also that the web address starts with ‘https’.
What is the customer support service like?
If you have a problem with measuring or ordering your blinds or if you need to return your blinds for any reason, how helpful will the company be? Most websites have a customer services page or a frequently asked questions page to let customers know what to do if there’s a problem. If you’re concerned then call the company and ask them directly about any issues you may have – if they’re polite, friendly and knowledgeable then you know you’ve chosen the right company.
What services does the company offer?
When you’re choosing where to buy blinds take a moment to see what services the companies offer. Many companies will provide advice on measuring window blinds and send out samples for you to see the blinds up close. Also check what the delivery cost, times and returns policies are and if they have any guarantees to cover your blinds.
What selection of blinds are available?
One of the most important aspects to consider when deciding where to buy blinds is what selection of blinds a website has. If a company seems perfect but only has a handful of blinds to choose from then it’s unlikely they’ll have the right choice for you. Good companies will have multiple styles, colours and fabrics available as well as shades with extra features such as blackout blinds and solar protection shades.
Buying blinds can be an enjoyable experience once you choose the right window blinds company to provide your shades.
