Finding The Perfect Swatch

Custom made window treatments that you choose for your home, reflect the best of your style as each window has a view of its own with a special size and special needs. At Blindsgalore, you get to be the designer to select all the goodies- color, pattern, material, style and more. Don’t be overwhelmed as you scroll through all the many sample images. We believe in free swatches to give you the confidence to find a perfect match for your windows.

Seeing and feeling a sample of the material or fabric in your own home, against your furniture, the walls, flooring and the varying angles of light and any other idiosyncrasies, all come together to ensure you are happy once that special package of made to order window treatments arrive at your front door.

You want those windows covered now.

Choices Galore

Don’t limit yourself to the old tried and true white and off white, which always works, but dare a little and order a few that might surprise you. Swatches are free and your windows might give you a secret smile as they long to be noticed.

Think about woven woods-stylish with nubby texture and oh, so organic and natural- stained and distressed wood blinds -sheers that are ethereal and light as a feather, or eye-popping patterns on roller shades, and everyone’s favorite, cellular shades in most every color. That is just a few suggestions, but we have lots more, as gosh, you know, we are Blindsgalore for all that is supremely galore.

Helpful Hints

Here are a few hints to make the most of your swatch experience. View the swatch in the room where you will be installing your new window treatments. Place the swatch near the light and check the different light conditions throughout the day, especially the time when your blinds or shades will be closed tightly. Window coverings like to change as the light shifts as drab cloudy days and bright sunny days and nighttime skies all effect how you view your window coverings. If you can, order the color of all the blinds at the same time to ensure the best color match. If you are ordering a liner, make sure you select the sample with the liner so you can see the full reaction of the liner on the diffused light and how the color will change with a light filtering liner.

If you flubbed up and you don’t like any of your choices, order another round on us. If you still need help, don’t hesitate to call our window experts who will give you real time, personal and professional advice. Our designers cost you nothing but will slay any window dragons that are causing you stress. We have being doing custom window coverings online for over 15 years. We know what we are doing; we are a family business and we want your to love your home as much as we love our home.

Perfecting the view to the world can be messy and crazy, but your home should be the shelter from all the outside stress we cannot control. You do have the power to make your home that special corner where comfort is flawless. We want to be a part of making that a dream come true.
