Star Decorating

STAR DECORATING Visit Site

Star Decorating is an online home-furnishing superstore. Their major areas of focus are blinds/shades; area rugs; wallpaper and carpeting. From the left side of the homepage you can shop by manufacturer (such as Hunter Douglas and Levolor); across the top of the homepage you can shop by category (such as blinds, rugs, and wallpaper). The rest of the home page lists sales, benefits of shopping with Star Decorating, and shopping by types within each category. Star Decorating is so sure of their pricing they challenge you to find a lower price; if you can find a lower price for the same item, Star Decorating will beat it.

As with most sites we reviewed, Star Decorating offers their own brand of blinds plus a plethora of name brand blinds to choose from. The "house brand" prices are very competitive, as are the name-brand prices. You have to go thru a little more work than other sites to get at an actual price, which is a bit labor intensive, but sometimes the price is worth it.

The shipping is free, however there is no mention of samples. Free samples are a feature common on many of the sites in our review, so we were surprised that Star Decorating didn't offer this option. Customer service is available 6 days a week via phone or email.

Overall, Star Decorating is a good site with great prices. With a few user friendly website updates, and free samples, this site would certainly move higher in our review.

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.
