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.

BLINDS EXPRESS

Blinds Express is the window coverings division of Window Flair Inc, a New York based company that has specialized in retail window coverings, carpet, and flooring for 43 years. The website is a little more cluttered and harder to maneuver than some of the other companies reviewed.

When searching their inventory, you initially get lists of options without pictures, which makes the search process less user-friendly and more cumbersome. Once you click on the specific window covering you want, you must scroll down to the bottom of the page to see a price. The prices are competitive.

Like many of the other companies reviewed Blinds Express gives details instructions on how to measure your windows to select the correct window covering for your needs. They also offer an extensive list of pre-screened professionals to help you find a local installer if you want to hire out the installation. The list in alphabetical order by installer and not by state, though, making it difficult to find one near you.

Shipping is included in the price that is quoted and there is no sales tax as long as you are shipping outside of New York. Some free samples are offered, check the website to find out which brands you can get samples from.

Blinds Express ranked low on our review mostly due to the poorly organized website and difficulty finding information. We would suggest one of the higher ranked companies as a better place to look for your window covering needs.
