Color Accuracy:

Although we do our best to make sure that the colors printed on our web site are accurate, actual colors will vary. In addition, subtle color differences and textures may not be fully appreciated on some systems due to differences in monitors and/or display cards. Due to the fact that our products are all custom made, and can’t be returned, you need to be sure that you can live with any color variations that are possible from our scanning of the actual samples. If an exact color match is required, then please request a sample before placing your order. Once you receive your sample, keep in mind that all samples may still have minimal color variations as stated by the manufacturers. In addition to the above considerations regarding color, we’d like to suggest that you order all of your blinds of a given color at one time. There are sometimes slight variations between dye lots.

 

7-Day Price Guarantee

If you buy a product from us and see the identical product at a lower price within 7 calendar days after your original purchase, please contact us and we’ll refund the difference!

Be sure that the sale item has the same options as your original selection, and that the sale price is live on the site when you contact us to claim the guarantee. If these criteria are met, we’ll give you a credit for the difference in price, plus tax (if paid).

 

Fabric Back lighting:

“Back lighting” happens when light filters in through translucent fabrics from behind. Our swatches don’t show you the effect of back lighting, which can soften colors and highlight fabric textures. If you’d like to see how back lighting affects the color or texture of a particular material go visit your nearest retailer or request a sample from us.

 

Window Measurements:

For both inside and outside mounts the finished measurements of the window treatment are from the top of the headrail to the bottom of the bottomrail (or in the case of verticals the bottom of the vanes) for the height. The width is from the left edge of the window treatment to the right edge.

  • Inside mount An inside mount fits within the window frame. On inside mounts specific deductions are taken by the factory for operating clearance. These deductions vary for each manufacturer and each product and are only approximate deductions. For more specific details please go to the product page for the product you are interested in on our site before completing your order.
  • Outside mount An outside mount overlaps the window opening. Allowances are not taken by the manufacturer on this product. This is because you will need to supply us the exact measurements that you would like the window treatment to be. This includes adding extra for the width and the height to clear any trim etc if you so wish.
