Blinds Express

BLINDS EXPRESS Visit Site

Blinds Express is the window coverings division of Window Flair Inc, a New York based company that has specialized in retail window coverings, carpet, and flooring for 43 years. The website is a little more cluttered and harder to maneuver than some of the other companies reviewed.

When searching their inventory, you initially get lists of options without pictures, which makes the search process less user-friendly and more cumbersome. Once you click on the specific window covering you want, you must scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a price. The prices are competitive.

Like many of the other companies reviewed Blinds Express gives details instructions on how to measure your windows to select the correct window covering for your needs. They also offer an extensive list of pre-screened professionals to help you find a local installer if you want to hire out the installation. The list in alphabetical order by installer and not by state, though, making it difficult to find one near you.

Shipping is included in the price that is quoted and there is no sales tax as long as you are shipping outside of New York. Some free samples are offered, check the website to find out which brands you can get samples from.

Blinds Express ranked low on our review mostly due to the poorly organized website and difficulty finding information. We would suggest one of the higher ranked companies as a better place to look for your window covering needs.

American Blinds

AMERICAN BLINDS Visit Site

American Blinds is a one stop decorating site. This site offers Blinds & shutters; Wallpaper & Fabric; Curtains & Draperies, Bedding; Area Rugs; Customer Framed Art and anything else you might need to decorate a room or home.

Focusing on the Blinds & Shutters area of the website; we were a little overwhelmed at first. Clicking on the tab from the home page, the different types of window coverings are displayed down the left side of the screen. What we don't like about this site is that you have to shop by brand; therefore, comparison shopping is hard and tedious. Once you select a brand, lists of all options within that brand line are given. No pictures, just the name. Select a product and then you have to make a color selection. Finally, after you enter your window measurements, a price is revealed. After all this, you have the price of one blind, which can then be added to a cart or a scrapbook.

As far as pricing, American Blinds was firmly in the middle of the pack.

Moving on to customer service; for $5, American Blinds will provide you with 10 American Brand blind swatches or 10 Bali, Graber or Hunter Douglas blind swatches. American Blinds offers a free catalog for blinds, rugs or wallpaper. They also offer a personal shopper service free of charge. Email them with your ideas and they will have options for you within 24 hours.

American Blinds offers a satisfaction guarantee; if you contact them within 14 days of receipt, your refund will be issued via in store credit or merchandise voucher only.

To ensure your satisfaction, American Blinds provides detailed information on how to correctly measure, install, care and clean your blinds and they offer a 5 year limited warranty. Free shipping is offered on all orders; however, items over 90 inches may incur an additional oversize freight charge. Customer Service is available via phone, email, or instant chat.

The bottom line for American Blinds is that the overall shopping experience is just not enjoyable. They have too much information that is not very well organized. A frustrating shopping experience combined with middling prices conspire to give American Blinds our lowest rating.

When looking at window blind stores, there are a number of factors you should consider. Some of these include:

  • Cost.  You want to shop at a site that consistently offers low prices. If you can match that up with a superior level of service, you've got a winner.
  • Selection.  Some companies offer name-brand window blinds, while others offer only in-house products. How important is recognizable brands to you?
  • Navigation.  Some sites offer an enjoyable shopping experience; others are downright frustrating. You don't want to waste your time (and emotions) on an under-performing website.
