So you’d like to spruce up those drab living room window treatments, but you don’t want to spend a lot of money. You’ve heard the commercials for discounted online blinds companies and think this may be your answer. But WAIT — not so fast – make sure you have all the information before you choose where to purchase your window treatments.
Online ordering can mean a lot more work for you, so make sure it is worth it. Are you prepared to make all the correct measurements? Do you know whether to take the measurement on the inside of the trim, the outside of the casing or both? Are all your windows exactly the same or do you have varying widths? And then when you finally figure out all the measurements and you’re done wrestling a tape measure, it’s up to you to pick a style, design, fabric, finish etc. So many options! See those tiny square colors on the website? Can you choose from those one-inch digital squares the color that will be perfect for your floor-to-ceiling large display windows? Man, this is hard. It sure would be nice to have a little help or even some ideas that may work best for your room.
Well, you did it on your own and got your order placed. You’re pretty proud of all the work you accomplished and look forward to the arrival of your new blinds. The exciting day comes and you’re not even there to receive your packages. You return home to see your front porch covered with a dozen long boxes. You rush to open them and can’t wait to get the window treatments installed. Oh wait, more work – you’re on your own again as you have to install these monstrosities! Each box comes with instructions of only “3 simple steps” and a pound of extra hardware. Your cordless drill is dead so you have to wait yet another 24 hours. You then spend your whole Saturday installing the window treatments only to find that one window was ordered incorrectly. But not to worry, the online company will replace it at no cost. You just have to drag the oversized box to the post office, return it and then wait another month for the replacement. In the meantime, you can entertain your guests in your living room while explaining the mystery of the missing window treatment.
Luckily, there is an easier way! And it truly is just “3 simple steps”. One, call Spindletop draperies. Two, meet with their consultant in your home to choose and order the perfect style window coverings.
