Why to Avoid Buying Window Shades Online

Posted by Polar Shades on Feb 10, 2017 2:33:49 PM

We don't often invoke our initials at Polar Shades, but when people say they have gotten “the memo” about the benefits of online shopping, we can't help ourselves. We suggest adding a P.S.: While it's fine to shop for some products online, window shades is definitely not one of them.bigstock-Man-Installing-Cassette-Roller-152526326.jpg

When you book a free in-home consultation with Polar Shades, you will enjoy four distinct advantages the online shopping experience just can't touch – literally. Consider:

  • A Polar Shades window consultant visits your home when it's most convenient for you and the demands of your schedule – day or night, evening or weekend. Like online shoppers, you can shop at your leisure in the privacy of your home, where you are most comfortable. You also will enjoy the undivided attention of a window shade expert who will show you a wide variety of shade styles and colors, answer all your questions and measure your windows with precision. Returns are high for online purchases because people often make misinformed or completely uninformed purchases. This scenario is non-existent at Polar Shades.
  • A Polar Shades window consultant will encourage you to hold shade samples in your hand to assess the texture and quality for yourself – an experience you cannot come close to replicating through a computer screen. No matter how close you zoom in on a product sample, there is no substitute for the tactile experience. A shade may look durable online when in fact it's flimsy. The pattern may appear nubby and raised when in reality it's flat and undistinguished. And colors? While many online stores do their best to display accurate colors, computer screens present another filter through which you view them, and this is where honest distortions occur. Shopping for some products should be a fundamentally tactile experience to ensure the greatest degree of customer satisfaction – and shopping for shades is one of them.
  • A Polar Shades window consultant will also encourage you to view shade samples exactly where you will hang them: in your home, against your walls and amid your furnishings. And, you can take the time to see how changes in lighting during the day may affect your final selection. Polar Shades' consultants understand window treatments constitute an investment, and they take every step possible to ensure you make the right choice. Polar Shades demonstrates the art of the personal touch – making the impersonal online purchase chilly by comparison. It's another reason why many Polar Shades customers become lifelong customers.
  • A Polar Shades window consultant will ensure you know you're dealing with an industry leader – and one of the few shade companies that actually manufacturers its own shades because it is committed to quality. If people are nervous about shopping online, it's often because they don't know exactly who they're dealing with and are afraid of falling victim to scams, gimmicks and identity theft.

Polar Shades stands head and shoulders above the crowd, both online and offline. You can find out for yourself when you write a P.S. on your “to-do” list and call Polar Shades at 702-260-6110 for a free in-home consultation.
