Is it Time to Update those Window Coverings?


by Chris S 7 Sep 2012

Window coverings is a great term. It is very descriptive, in that you know exactly what it means. Window coverings, simply put, cover your window. At the same time, window coverings is an incredibly vague term. One could be talking about blackout blinds, or one could be talking about draperies. I speak from personal experience here, as I actually searched for new window coverings recently. Let me get to the end result, and then share some facts about the word window coverings. If you’re shopping for custom blinds and shades, do it online, and go directly to SelectBlinds.com. They have virtually every window covering product that you could possibly need, other than draperies.

Blinds vs. Shades

Blinds and shades is another example of a phrase that is both very descriptive, and very vague. If you yourself are using the term, you obviously know to what you are referring. But it is entirely possible that someone else could be confused. Are you looking for blinds, or are you looking for shades. And if you are looking for blinds, are they custom blinds, which are made utilizing several types of materials, or are you looking for the old fashion, somewhat cheap blinds looking, vinyl mini blinds. My message here is that you should be specific, if you know what you want. Window shades are totally different than window blinds.

Window shades allow the option of providing a blackout window covering. Blackout blinds don’t really exist. A window blind is made of slats, whether a horizontal blind or a vertical blind. No matter how tightly you close the slats, there is no way to achieve the effect of a true blackout blind. First of all, you would have to order no holes privacy, which wraps the lift cords around the slats, rather than running thru the slats, which requires a tiny hole being drilled into each slat in multiple locations. The other challenge is the way blinds are cut. They just will not get snugged up enough to the sides of the window casing to achieve a true blackout blind effect.

Blackout shades and room darkening shades will provide the best light blocking in pretty much every situation. Roller shades, honeycomb shades, and Roman shades, can all be ordered as either room darkening shades or blackout shades. The Roman shades are made with a liner that provides the different levels of light blockage, while roller shades and honeycomb shades use an entirely different fabric from light filtering to room darkening, to blackout.

Back to Select Blinds for a minute. This is an easy to understand site. If you know what you’re looking for, you can click directly on the category. If you are not sure which type of window covering is right for you, they have a way to shop by the feature that is important to you. You can shop by blackout, cordless, lift style, like top down / bottom up, or several other methods. Selectblinds even has a measuring guarantee, in the unlikely event that you measured incorrectly.

SelectBlinds.com

SelectBlinds.com sells window fashions online. This includes window shades and window blinds, as well as plantation shutters. Select Blinds offers these custom window coverings under their own brand name. The company claims that they sell more blinds than any other online seller of window coverings.

Consumers care about those statements, somewhat. The fact is that all of the above is information from SelectBlinds. There is another interesting statement that is on their website; "The Most Reviewed, Highest Rated Blinds in America". That is exactly the statement that means something to the consumer. This is a claim that is easily proven. Custom window coverings are a major item for any home. Window blinds and window shades, allow for privacy, provide energy efficiency, and control the level of ambient light in a room.

Window fashions are such an important investment, that you can be sure that when there are customers who are unhappy with their experience, they will write a review. Select Blinds has reviews that are less than stellar, but that is the exception to the nearly 200,000 positively glowing reviews that can be found on their site, and on the sites of the independent review sites. Epinions, Google Checkout, Bizrate, Nextag, and Reseller Ratings all back up this bold claim.

SelectBlinds puts their money where their mouth is. They offer satisfaction guarantees, price guarantees, free shipping, and a suite of products that will satisfy any window covering need. They also offer an exclusive Designer Collection, called the @Home Collection by Carriann Arkowski, a Kids’ Collection, and also a collection of custom shades that carry the Good Housekeeping seal of approval.

Shopping for window blinds and window shades can be an intimidating experience. To take the fear out of this event, try www.selectblinds.com, where your satisfaction is guaranteed!
