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.

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.
