Star Decorating

STAR DECORATING

Visit Site

Since 1985, Star Decorating has been a premier mail order company, selling not just blinds and shades but also area rugs and more. Their "A+" rating with the BBB continues to demonstrate that they do a good job of taking care of their customers. And, they offer a decent variety of brands in their inventory: not just the bigger names like Levolor and Bali but also Coolaroo and their own StarBlinds brand.

Star Decorating has made some changes since our last review, the most helpful being the ability to order free samples. You'll find that option with each window treatment you look at; this definitely keeps this retailer competitive, since most of their competitors offer samples too. They also guarantee that they'll beat any price you find at another store; just fill out their contact form and they'll get in touch with you to offer you a better deal.

You may not need to make that request: when we shopped the site most recently, the Levolor blinds we used as a comparison product across retailers was several dollars less than the price at other stores. We needed a coupon code to get that price, but the code was shown right next to the product description. Just be sure to enter your product dimensions: the default on those Levolor window treatments was 8" by 10", not the standard 24" by 36" typically used on other sites.

As with many window blinds stores, Star Decorating offers free shipping within the contiguous United States for all blinds and shades under 94". Expect an oversize charge of $70 if your window treatments are larger than that.

This store only accepts returns due to damage or defect, but you'll have to make that claim within 5 days of delivery. Any product warranties depend on the manufacturer, and you'll be responsible for any shipping costs if you have to return your merchandise for repair.

The only change that Star Decorating hasn't made since our previous review is their website. More now than before, it looks very outdated compared with other retailers of window blinds, and we still found typos in their policies and product descriptions. We also got text-heavy pop-ups during the ordering process; we appreciate the information that they provided, but when their competitors offer images and even videos to illustrate the same details, Star Decorating seems to have fallen behind the times.

But, because of the improvements they've made, Star Decorating earns an extra half-star in our ratings, and we hope to see an improved, more user-friendly site in the near future.

3 Day Blinds

3 DAY BLINDS

Visit Site

If you're like many people, the thought of having to measure your windows exactly right, select the perfect window treatments, and then install them isn't a pleasant idea. That's where 3 Day Blinds comes in. All you have to do is enter your information, and a consultant will be scheduled to come to your home. This design professional will bring samples of both trendy and traditional options, take measurements, and place your order. And, when your blinds or shades are ready, you'll get professional installation - included with your purchase price.

You'll only find three brands at 3 Day Blinds: Norman, Somfy, and their in-house brand. They don't publish their pricing, so you won't know what it'll cost until you have your in-home design consultation. But, expect it to be spendy - much more so than the other stores we reviewed. But, you'll also get a solid warranty: installation is covered for a year, while fabrics/motors/remote controls are covered for 5 years and cords/ladders for 7 years.

Given that 3 Day Blinds is so well-known, how do they stack up against the competition when it comes to their reputation? On the one hand, this retailer enjoys an excellent track record with the BBB as an accredited, "A+" rated business. There are also lots of positive reviews featured prominently on the 3 Day Blinds site. But, when we sorted those reviews by one-star ratings, we found more than 75 of them - even though the site said that they had a total of 74 reviews, 95% of which were 4- or 5-star ratings. Those numbers don't add up.

Looking through those 1-star reviews and at similarly negative remarks left on other sites, we saw some common themes: poor measurements and installation, low-quality materials, deliveries that take months instead of days, and huge challenges getting a response from 3 Day Blinds customer service department when these problems arise. Since most of their customers are coming to them hoping to avoid those exact hassles, especially with measurements and installation, they should be doing a much better job.

If you're dead set on having someone else take your window measurements and install your blinds, you may still want to keep 3 Day Blinds on your radar. But, given how many customers have had problems with exactly that, it might not save you time, hassle, or money in the long run.

When you order window blinds online, your order is shipped directly to you, and many stores give you the choice to put them up yourself or to pay for professional installation.

As you decide which window blind store you'll use for your purchase, you should keep in mind these criteria:

  • Selection. Does the retailer carry a wide variety of styles, brands, and options? Will you be limited to their in-house blinds, or can you also choose from established name brands? Can you get a sample of different types of blinds that they offer?
  • Price. What will it cost to get the window blinds you want? Will you spend extra for shipping? Are there any discounts available, to make your purchase more affordable?
  • Policies. If you don't like the window blinds once they're delivered, can you return them? Does the store offer a satisfaction guarantee? What happens if the blinds don't fit when you try to install them?
  • Reputation. Have other customers had a good experience with the store, both with using the site to place an order and once they receive their blinds? Does the retailer have a solid history, especially when it comes to resolving customer concerns?
