Custom Shades Online (Example: Blinds.com)
« on: March 16, 2018, 07:09:04 AM »
Anyone here tried doing it?
Is it cheaper than calling a guy to do it for me?
Is it risky that the measurements will be wrong?
How hard is the installation process?

Have the same question.

A long time ago I bought from Blinds.com
I couldn't find a large enough blind for my sliding glass door at Lowes and HomeDepot, so I checked out their website.  Their shades were cheaper and were available in my size.  When it came, the bracket was the correctr size, as were the vertical blind strips.  Unfortunately, the color was so ugly, that I didn't hang it up.
I went with a curtain.  8)


I recently looked at their website again, and the prices seem higher, but their return policy seem more generous.

I don't know about any others, but blinds.com advertises that they'll take it back if you get the measurements wrong.

Just got ours from this seller. Came out perfect. Exact measurements and color as expected. Quality seems nice.
It say “for custom” do they cut it for your size or u cut it yourself?

You give them the size and they make it for you. The price is per square meter.

I was very happy with SelectBlinds.com a few years ago. It's made custom to size. Great warranty. You could find promo codes online.

I just purchased some cell shades from SelectBlinds.com after reading this article: https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-blackout-shades/ Hoping they turn out as reviewed.
