Get your blinds parts here!
By Cherri
5/10/2012 1:36:00 PM  

We are happy to announce you can now purchase specific blind parts for your blind/shade repair or replacement!  For instance, if your pet (or kid) climbs on the back of your sofa and decides to make a chew toy out of the cords on your beautiful roman style bamboo shades.  Luckily, you can now replace the string by going directly to our web page and clicking on “blind parts” on the main page.  Easy instructions are also on this site on “how to re-string bamboo shades.”  Hopefully, this may never happen, but it’s reassuring to know you won’t have to live with “chewed” cords.

You’ve taken down your horizontal faux or basswood blinds to paint the room or have windows washed.  Now it’s time to hang the blinds again, only you find that the valance clips are nowhere to be found (we get calls on this one all the time).  Valance clips are now available for sale in sets of 3.

Last, but not least, we now offer Custom Crown Valances.  Say, for example, you would like to do inside mount blinds, but would prefer to have a valance on the outside trim of your window with side returns.  Now you have a chance to be creative without spending a lot of extra cash.

Cords and Valances come in a variety of colors to match your existing window treatments. Shipping is FREE.

Whatever the reason you may need to replacement parts for your blinds – we’ve got them!

Curtain Rod Selection

Curtain Rod Selection

 

 

When it comes to decorating the home, most people think of the most obvious; the style of the room, the paint, the furniture, window curtains etc. When it comes to curtain rods or Drapery poles, we sometimes overlook how important of a product they actually are. There are many varieties to choose from depending on the style of your room and the fabric of the curtains that is used. Whatever your personal taste might be, a curtain rod can be that special accessory which finishes off the look of the window. Using the right curtain rod can compliment your decor by adding that special touch to your window treatments.

Curtain rods are literally what hold the entire window treatment together. Our unique rods are available in a range of materials and styles including metal, wood and polymer. The right curtain rod will enable you to enhance your curtains if chosen correctly. Here are a few things to bear in mind when choosing your curtain rods.

First of all, you need to determine the place where you are supposed to mount the curtain rods. This in turn shall vary with the type of curtain you are employing. Few curtain types look good if hung above the window frame, whereas many are hung within the window frame.

Secondly, you need to decide upon the design and style of the curtain rod. As curtain rods are available in a large variety, you will have a lot of options to choose from. Choose a decorative rod if the rods are to be mounted above the window frame. Or select a traverse rod if you are hanging curtains which are closed with a chord. In addition, it is also recommended to evaluate the material of the rod. Ensure that the rod is made of a good quality material and suits the climate you live in. Whether you are aware of the fact or not; cold, heat, dust, and humidity are all known to affect curtain rods. In addition, also check that the curtain rods you select match well with the furnishings of the room.

Thirdly, you need to decide upon the size spacer you wish to employ. However, this typically depends on the type of curtains you are hanging. Rings and hooks are the two most common types of spacers employed.

Lastly, you need to select the finials for the curtain rods. Finials are nothing but decorative pieces which are attached to both the ends of the rod. You will be pleased to know that our rods come with finials included!

Sincerely

Cherri

Standard Vertical Blinds
By Cherri
1/4/2012 9:09:00 AM  

                   STANDARD VERTICAL BLINDS


Our Standard Vertical Blinds are a great option you should consider if you are contemplate sprucing up your home for the spring on a budget. It is worth pausing for a moment to consider what a huge impact the window coverings could have on almost any room in the house; from the bedroom to a showpiece dining area.

We at Payless Decor are convinced our Standard Vertical Blinds have just what it takes to combine both style and practicality (not to forget economical) that make them so special in our eyes.

For a start, vertical blinds are extremely versatile so you will never be stuck for possibilities. Don't think of vertical blinds as merely a solution for your patio door. Their neat streamlined appearance is especially well-suited for narrower windows or doorways because of their height-conscious design. Vertical window blinds can be used as a sophisticated substitute for draperies in any room of the home or office. One of the major benefits of blinds such as these is that they can be set to face in a certain direction, from fully open to entirely closed.  You may find this is especially useful in extreme outdoor conditions; such as bright sunlight or darkness. Moving your blinds to filter out just the right amount of light will lead to a perfect home setting.

Our Standard Vertical Blinds come in five basic colors that will surely complement your current decor and are custom made to your specifications. Tracks can be configured for a one-way draw, split draw, center stack, or opposite stack to suit personal preference; the direct drive control unit with large sprocket wheel provides a smooth and responsive operation. You can also purchase a single or double valance to complete the look for your window. So with our Standard Vertical Blinds, you have an almost unlimited flexibility in designing your room.

Sincerely,

Cherri
