STAR DECORATING

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.

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.
