BLINDS GALORE

Blinds Galore is one of the best organized and user-friendly websites we reviewed. The homepage is clean and attractive. Current promotions are listed on the homepage and easy to find. Blinds, shades and shutters make up most of the product selection with a few curtains and drapes as well.

The tabs at the top of the homepage make it easy to shop by Style, Brand, Feature and more. They also offer coverings for some of the hard to fit windows like French Doors, Arched Windows, Skylights, Sliding Doors and more. Blinds Galore offers 11 top name brands for window coverings, which is longer than most blinds retailers.

Once you select the type of window covering you are looking for, there are many filter options listed on the next page to quickly find the exact kind you need. We like that the price is listed on this page as some of the other companies reviewed make you take a few more steps before they reveal the price. Prices are very competitive with the other companies reviewed.

There are a few great features at Blinds Galore that assist you in selecting the best window covering for your needs. Whether it be the best style, how to measure your window correctly, or installing the covering yourself, there resources available are simple, easy to follow yet extensive in information. There is even a "Windows Jargon" section that defines terms you might not be familiar with. Shipping is FREE on all orders less than 100" in width, and you can receive up to 15 samples for Free, with Free shipping on samples as well. Make sure you note that all sales are final and returns are only for warranty repair work. There is no sales tax if you order outside of CA.

Blinds Galore has such an easy-to-use website full of great information. They offer one of the largest selections of brands and have great customer service, making them one of our highest ranked companies reviewed.

AMERICAN BLINDS

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.
