BLINDS

Blinds is the premier window blind store on the Internet. They have plenty to offer and they organize it well. From the home page you can browse by type, shop top sellers, and get helpful information such as design advice. You also have access to design ideas, measuring guides and useful information for first time visitors. Sales and rebates are clearly indicated on a rolling billboard and Blinds has a Price Watch section that compares their prices to the same name-brand blinds priced at Lowe's and Home Depot. This is very helpful to the shopper because chances are, they are either going to purchase blinds online or at a mass retailer. Speaking of price, Blinds had the lowest prices of all the websites we reviewed.

As you shop by category, Blinds has concisely organized all the needed information for you to make a purchase. Each category has a description of the item, special offerings associated with that type of window covering, and sale prices for particular brands within that category. The descriptions actually contain useful information instead of sales jargon. Blinds takes it one step further and provides a feature chart listing price, insulation ability, room darkening factor, whether it's kid-proof, and whether it's easy to clean. This chart is on every description page so comparison shopping becomes extremely simple. The different brands are mapped out in an easy to read chart that enables you to sort by price, brand, product, type and best sellers. Each category has a gallery to view the product in different settings, which gives you an idea of how the window covering will look in your situation.

The customer service available at Blinds is exceptional. Free samples are available to help you order with confidence. Blinds offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all items. Blinds even offers to find a "pre-screened" handy man to install your blinds for you. Customer service is available via Live Help, a toll-free number or email. Blinds also offers FREE shipping on orders less than 90" wide and delivers via UPS or FedEx.

Blinds earns our highest rating due to their easy-to-use website, unmatched features, and the lowest prices for both in-house and name brand blinds. If you are shopping for window blinds, Blinds is a must-stop shop.

LOWE'S

Most of us are familiar with Lowe's and this mega home improvement store. Many home owners love to shop the clean and brightly lit isles of Lowe's for their next project. Lowe's has also created a customer friendly online shopping option with a huge selection of varying window treatment options. Shoppers will find brands such as Levolor, Allen + Roth, IPG, Project Source, Basic Blindz and more. The prices of Lowe's window blinds are meant to cater to every sized budget but tend to lean on the more affordable end.

The Lowe's website is friendly and easy to navigate. Shoppers may narrow down their blind search by price, brand, color, and customer ratings. But what was missing was the option to narrow by window size. This meant we had to spend more time searching through the same blind in different sizes to find what we needed. However, we liked choosing our blinds online versus digging through binds to find they only have 2 boxes left and we needed 4. We also noticed that the description and specifications were very detailed but found no instructions on how to measure for blinds.

Lowe's does offer free shipping on most orders of $49.99 or greater. Returns are also simple in that products may be returned within 90 days with receipt via your local store or returned via the prepaid return shipping label. Any damaged goods must be reported to Lowe's within 3 days of receipt so it's important to inspect your purchase, quickly. The window blinds at Lowe's are priced about average in comparison to other companies reviewed however they also offer a low price guarantee on identical items minus an additional 10%. Please see the website for specific rules.

Lowe's provides a very standard set of affordable blind options in predetermined sizes. The website does a decent job of narrowing selection but is missing a key component. We liked the free shipping, 90 day return policy and the option to return to a local store.
