That’s right - we’re about to tell it like it is. If you’re out shopping for your home, you’re bound to wander into a Bed Bath & Beyond like the rest of us. You receive a coupon in the mail, see their catalogs, and get lured into all the gizmos and gadgets they have sitting on their shelves that you just KNOW would look perfect in your home. But when you’re shopping for window treatments, is a place like Bed Bath & Beyond really the best option for you? Will they really meet your needs, if not excel your expectations? We, at Snohomish County Budget Blinds, doubt they can compare to what we have to offer. Breaking it down into four distinctions, we are about to spill the truth on quality, customization, service, and company guarantee.
The Difference Between Budget Blinds and Bed Bath & Beyond
When you buy at Bed Bath & Beyond, you’re buying a product in a box that is usually mass produced rather than custom made. At Budget Blinds, every order is a custom order and made to the specific needs of the customer.
Speaking of customizing, Budget Blinds works with over a dozen different manufacturers to provide the best selection and quality at an affordable price. We have consultants that provide a complimentary trip to your PNW home (our territory includes Everett, Mill Creek, Arlington and more!) to take specific measurements of your windows. No window is too small, too large, or too wacky for us (here's how we deal with drapery on odd-shaped windows). In comparison, when you shop at Bed Bath & Beyond, you have standard sizes to choose from that you would either need to trim yourself and hope you get it right, or are lucky enough to actually have a “standard size” window.
With our full-service package, Budget Blinds will come to your Washington home free of charge for a consultation. During our visit we will show you samples that were specifically chosen for you - like a portable showroom, so you can see how they would look with your own decor. We will measure your windows and provide you with an estimate that is uniquely yours since everything is tailored to your desires. If you decide to purchase from us, we immediately place the order so that manufacturers can get right to work building your new custom made window treatments. Once your new treatments are ready, we send professional installers to install them for you and to make sure everything is working properly. If there are any problems we will address them right away. In comparison, when you shop at Bed Bath & Beyond, you walk in, choose from a select few treatments, and install yourself with no guarantee.
Let’s elaborate on the guarantee! During the initial installation, if the window treatments either don’t fit or are damaged in any way, Budget Blinds takes full responsibility and will reorder replacements immediately. Many of the manufacturers that Budget Blinds works with offer a limited lifetime warranty if something breaks that our installer is unable to fix. In addition to the manufacturer's warranty replacement guarantee, we have a few that offer a “No Questions Asked” replacement that extends several years after the purchase date, providing you with a new product, only charging for the service of installation. These manufacturer guarantees are on top of our own top customer service that we provide our customers.
Don’t get us wrong, stores like Bed Bath & Beyond have their place and come in handy for home furnishings and fun ideas --- but when it comes to your windows, let the experts bring your vision to life.
