Best Shopping Savings Tip: Buy Once, Buy Right

With the kickoff to Black Friday and the start of the holiday shopping season, here’s a tip I learned to help you in your purchasing decisions: “Buy Once, Buy Right“.

What I have learned through years of holiday shopping and also as a retailer, is that to ensure 100% satisfaction with your purchase, it is important to first focus on quality.  The product needs to serve its intended purpose well and last long to lower the total cost of ownership.  Second, seek true value. What this means, is that while well known quality brands might help identify quality products, are you paying a premium price for that brand?  Or are you getting a good discount and good service for that purchase?  Alternatively, does the store offer similar quality products (but not famous brands) at a much better price?  For window coverings (blinds, drapes, curtains, shutters), you must also factoring in the service you will get in purchasing the products so that you get the right size, options and features, installation, and post-installation support.

Trendy Blinds is focus on selling top-quality products – both well-known brands and our own Trendy Blinds brand of products at a great value, which include expert advice and first-class dedicated service.

The Advantage of Visiting Showroom when Shopping for Blinds, Drapes and Shutters

With some trend forecasters talking about how most things will be shopped online (for example groceries, electronics and clothing), one may wonder if anyone spends anytime shopping (and living) in the real physical world anymore.  However, we at Trendy Blinds believe now, more then ever, it is important to have a showroom to showcase a wide selection of quality window covering (blinds, shades, drapes, shutters) products, so that the consumer can make a more informed decision driven by factors beyond just price, such as quality, features, and service.  Furthermore, even home consultation, which primarily provide small material samples swatches, cannot properly showcase complete functioning products and provide a quick overview of all the possible features and options available in decorating your windows.

While we provide free measurement (within a geographic boundary), we insist that potential customers come visit our showrooms (one in Markham and another in Concord, Vaughan) to finalize their selection.  With over 200 products on display and both showrooms located in very convenient shopping centres with amply free parking, plus our in-store window covering designers to provide guidance and advice, there is no reason not to make a trip before deciding on spending possibly thousands of dollars.

The difference between a price-driven shop-at-home or online experience or one at a showroom with expert design and product advice can be seen in the results:

  • Will the choices made enhance the value of your home?
  • Do the products chosen for certain windows fit into your daily life and usage instead of providing frustration and possibly even safety risks to your child or pets?
  • Did you really get the best price on quality products or just low price on junk bait-and-switch products from vendors who don’t have a showroom?

Old condo transformed – “Looks like a million dollars!”

By choosing the right window covering for your condo apartment, the blinds instantly upgrades the look and feel of the space.  Like this one recent customer told us after seeing the finished look with our Trendy Blinds Twin Metal Combi blinds and Sun Shut Combi Blinds installed: “My condo looks like a million dollars!”.  The great thing about it was that the price was lower than buying ordinary boring blinds or rollers from the big box stores or national blinds stores.

Window Coverings for high-rise Condos do not have to be boring

Our Trendy Blinds client decided to add a more interesting and trendy touch to their condo windows when the downsized from a house to their condo penthouse unit.

For the kitchen and master bedroom they decided to use our sleek, flat fabric dual combi blind system that can be adjusted to open and shut for outside viewing or privacy.  Semi-opaque fabric choice allows filtered light in to provide a comfortable glowing ambience during the day and give visual privacy at night.



For their grown up daughter’s room they chose our pleated combi II product with a semi-opaque metallic white fabric that matches well with the mirror lighting in this room and gives a subtle “bling, bling” look for her to impress her friends.Image

For the living room, the inspired choice of selecting our Lindsay style semi-custom drapery in satin lining gave a warmer yet formal feel to the room without the heavy look of blackout drapery.  Daytime sunlight can softly filter into the room.
