Summer is that time of the year when we especially appreciate window blinds, shutters, and shades… It is also the season when if you don’t have these, you realize how much you really need them. With such consumers in mind we’ve approached the task of creating a list of the top ten companies that sell interior shutters, blinds, and window shades online.
Here are the top 10 companies we recommend considering:
- Blinds.com — This is a truly impressive online retailer. They sell twice as many blinds as their closest competitor does. The actual numbers exceed 4,200 blinds sold by Blinds.com online every day. They’ve made lists of Inc 500, Internet Retailer’s Top 500 brands, and were also awarded Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year prize in 2006. Their SureFit™ Guarantee covers you as a blinds customer. They also guarantee prices lower than you would get at Lowes or at Home Depot; and do so within 30 days of purchase. While we’re listing them first, because of our alphabetical order, they would’ve remained in this place in a true ranking as well.
- BlindsExpress.com — As the company itself puts it “over 45 years of customer service excellence,” they strive nothing else but your full satisfaction: from the research phase of your shopping process to the ordering and beyond. They sell window blinds, shades, shutters, and also wood drapery and panel track systems. They charge no sales tax (apart from New York state), offer overnight delivery, multiple payment options, and support by friendly and knowledgeable staff.
- Blindsgalore — Regardless of positioning themselves as “a small family owned business” this company is truly “passionate about bringing beautiful and affordable custom window treatments” to every home. Everything is 100% custom made, orders ship for free within contiguous U.S.; and on top of everything they have a love-it-of-exchange-it-for-free policy too.
- 3 Day Blinds — This company’s motto is: bringing “you premium custom window treatments with unrivaled service and value.” They pride themselves with “more than 37 years of client satisfaction” with 9 out of 10 clients being wiling to recommend them to friends and family. Besides blinds and shutters, they also offer shades, curtains, drapes, and a number of other window treatment options to choose from.
- BlindSaver.com — Launched in late 2003 this company “established itself as one of the nation’s premier online custom window covering retailers.” They carry products by an array of well-known industry brands (including Bali, Graber, Levolor, Good Housekeeping, and more). Every order comes with free ground shipping, free exchanges, and they even offer free samples (which ship within 1 business day).
- Steve’s Blinds & Wallpaper — Submitted by our reader, Janet, who applauded them for great “prices and customer service,” this family business has been around since 1950. Just as the name implies, they focus on two things: blinds and wallpaper. “Steve’s Guarantee” – which is backed up by their 65+ years in business – is made of four promises: 100% satisfaction guarantee, lifetime lowest price guarantee, no hidden fee guarantee, and free lifetime warranty.
- Just Blinds — This company has over half a million of “satisfied customers”, and that’s quite a thing to brag about. They specialize in wood as well as faux wood blinds and shutters, cellular shades, aluminum blinds, Roman shades, PVC, fabric and faux wood verticals, as well as many other types by all major brands. As all others they also offer Free Ground Shipping, and offer free samples.
- Shades Shutters Blinds — Established in 2002, this Colorado-based online retailer of custom blinds and shades has quickly become one of the top independent blinds retailers in the U.S. They “offer every kind of interior window blind” specializing in “solar shades, blackout shades, environmentally friendly blinds and motorization.” Another noteworthy detail is that 75% of their products are produced in the USA.
- YourBlinds.com — This Texas-based company offers cellular shades, wood and faux wood blinds, Roman and roller shades, solar shades, vertical blinds, and literally every other type by such brands as Levelor, Bali, Comfortex, Graber, Ambience, and many others. They also offer free shipping, free swatches, and charge no sales tax.
- Wayfair — Being “one of the world’s largest online destinations for the home,” they are a great place to shop for window blinds, shutters, and shades. Wayfair offers pretty wide selections of all, and is definitely worth a look.
Finally, for exterior shutters, a good company to consider is CustomExteriorShutters.com.
