For the life of me, I do not understand why anyone would want to order blinds over the internet! Over the last 30 years that I have been selling blinds, shades, and shutters, you would not BELIEVE all the mistakes we have made in ordering, installing, having to repair blinds that have rotted string, and remote controls which need re-programmed! It's been a painful learning experience. I learn something each and every time something doesn't go quite right! I recently just had a customer tell me they were going to order from a big box store because they could get a better price.
I am in contact with several households each year and one of the questions I always ask is , “What is your preferred style?” Sometime this question is easily answered and sometimes it is not. The traditional people know for sure they are traditional and the contemporary people know they are contemporary but the other styles fall somewhere in the middle of all that. Most people will define their style based on what they see in advertisements. Retail stores like Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware and Ikea have established a style all of their own.
