While most window treatments are designed to last for at least a decade, they’re not built to outlive your home. If you live in the same house or apartment for long enough, eventually you have to replace your old window treatments. Even if they didn’t start to break and not work properly, you’d still want to replace them. Eventually window treatments collect a lot of dust, dirt, and other grime, and they start to look discolored and old. Thus, even if the paint on your walls, the flooring, and the furniture in your home look great, the window treatments will make your home look old and musty. When this happens it’s time for them to go.
Fortunately for homeowners everywhere, window treatment stores are ubiquitous. They’re everywhere. Even in a city with as few people as 100,000, there will be a dozen different window treatment stores. The demand for window treatments like custom window shades is high given that there are homes everywhere and many windows in each home, so it’s not surprising that there are so many different window treatment vendors to choose from. Still, having so many options is a gift and a curse. It’s a gift in that you have a lot of options to choose from, and it’s a curse in that you have to sift through them until you find a store with the products you’re looking for.
When searching for a custom window blinds store, a few things should be on your mind. You should be looking for a store with friendly and helpful customer service staff who will answer any questions you have and provide information on the various products they’re selling. You should also choose a store that offers their products at prices that you’re comfortable with paying. It’s also a good idea to pick a store where the customer service representatives are experts in the window treatment industry. If they can’t answer basic questions you might have, it’s time to look for another store.
However, of all the things you should be seeking in a window treatment store, the most important has to be that they offer a wide variety of products. They should carry multiple different brands, including, of course, Hunter Douglas. In addition to carrying a wide variety of window treatment manufacturers in their store, they should also carry a wide array of different products for you to choose from. This means that they have every design of window shutter, shade, and blind that a person could want, and that those products come in all sorts of shapes, styles, and colors. The more products you have to look at and consider, the more you’re going to end up liking the product that you settle on.
Shades on Wheels is one of those companies that carries a wide variety of products, and they’ll actually bring their showroom to you. They’ll come to your house with samples of their products, which allows you to better imagine what those products would actually look like when they’re up.
