Importance of Natural Light and how Window Coverings Makes the Difference

Blinds, Shades and Drapery is not just about “Covering” your windows – it can have a big impact on your mental health, productivity and well-being

Numerous studies have already proven the direct correlation between natural light and a person mental well-being and productivity.  Therefore, window coverings, Blinds, Shades, Drapery and Shutters, should never be an afterthought in any home renovation project.  It not about “just covering your windows”.  With that mindset, one would gravitate toward the lowest common denominator (i.e. lowest price), resulting in selecting products that are difficult to operate (therefore you just leave it in one setting), do not protect your floor and furnishings from harmful UV, and limits the benefits of natural light and preserving outside views.

At Trendy Blinds & Closets, we conduct a quick need assessment when you come to our showroom and then recommend different products to suit your needs and budget. Put in at least 20-30 minutes of your time during your first visit to our showrooms and then end results for your home windows will be something you will enjoy using and looking at for many years to come.

Media Room: Silhouette Shades and Drapes

When a customer comes into our showroom with a clear intent in seeking the lowest price vendor for their window covering needs, I make sure to ask him what type of product he is interested in and whether he has done research into understand what is the right solution for his windows.  Instead of letting price determine the blind, shade or drape you use for your window, you should think first about what important functions it must serve for the room – its it light control, preserving views while maintaining privacy, enhancing the visual height or width of the room?, etc.  With that information, we can recommend the right products and present options in terms of good, better, best from a price, feature and style perspective.

Even in cases where the property is an investment with plans to rent out, you should ask what is the quality of the tenant you want to attract and how soon do you want to rent out the property.  Renting out 2 weeks earlier due to making the place look nicer and more functional/livable, would earn you more than enough money from rent to cover the extra cost for choosing something nicer for your windows.  And eventually, when you plan to sell the property, it may fetch a higher price and attract more potential buyers.

RESULTS FOR A PRICE SHOPPER:

Remember, if you shop for blinds, shades, shutters and drapery like a commodity ($ per square foot), you will end up with terrible results and most likely extra expenditure 1-2 years down the road to replace the junk you put on the window.

RESULTS FOR A SMART SHOPPER:

If you spend the time and let us explain and present products and solutions, you will end up with completely transformed windows and spaces that you will enjoy using on a daily basis at a value-price.

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.
