Curtain Rod Selection
By Cherri

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

Our Eclipse Faux Wood Plantation Shutters versus...
By Rondale
1/30/2012 2:57:00 PM  

Why buy our Eclipse Faux Wood Plantation Shutters over any other brand shutters? I can give you a few reasons:

  1. They are custom-produced within 7 days. Production time for most online and store retailers can be up to 2 weeks.
  2. We offer numerous options to customize the product to your specifications from the hinge color to the different tilt control options.
  3. FREE SHIPPING anywhere within the continental U.S. (excluding Alaska).
  4. Our shutter products are backed by a 25 Year Warranty for peace of mind (see website for more details).
  5. Unlike traditional shutters, they are easy to install and only require a screwdriver or drill for installation.

 

Ok, I gave more than a few reasons. :-) Our Eclipse Faux Wood Plantation Shutters are a great product for any décor as they are designed with style in mind. They are made from a durable Polyresin-3 vinyl which is fire retardant and will not crack, warp, fade, or peel. They are even moisture resistant which makes them perfect for bathrooms or kitchens. For those of you that have little ones, our Eclipse Faux Wood Plantation Shutters are “child safe” and UV protective which adds a safety and environmental element.

I forgot to mention the best reason of all. In addition to the many benefits mentioned above, our Eclipse Faux Wood Plantation Shutters offers the best value for custom shutters on the internet at a price that is easy on the wallet. With a number of configurations, contemporary color options, and durability… you are sure to find an Eclipse Faux Wood Plantation Shutter product to accentuate your decor.  

 

Happy Shopping!

Customer involvement
By Seth
12/1/2011 9:09:00 AM  
We are always trying to improve our products & level of service.I just wanted to point out a few things we are doing right now to involve our customers. Most of these types of activities we do through our facebook page, so 'like' us at www.facebook.com/paylessdecor if you want to get updates every once in a while.

So here are a few of the things we are doing, and if you have a blog or have a suggestion feel free to provide is with a different idea:
  • Product testing -- Want 2 test our new Cordless Solar Shades-http://bit.ly/uGZ6eJ & blog a review about them? We'll give u 1or2 free. Just reply w/yr blog

  • Beautiful results -- Budding photographer's: If you bought a product from us and think it just looks delightful in your home, snap a pic and post it here. Some of them we'll use for our site and if so, we'll give you $10 or a $10 credit! (We'd rather have real-life applications of our products vs. the staged shots which sometimes can be a bit antiseptic.

Why do Blind Companies offer Free Shipping - then charge for 'Handling'
By Seth
9/7/2010 12:23:00 PM  
A business practice within our industry that gets on my nerves is our competitors offering blind with Free Shipping, but then once you get to the cart, they charging a handling charge. What the heck is this ‘charge’? When you go to the website of the biggest online window treatments retailer and are about to purchase you blinds you will see there is an Order Processing Charge of $4.95. In effect this allows them to pass on an additional charge to the customer for no good reason - and by the time the customer sees it, she has already made up her mind on the purchase, and likely just “accepts it”. But just because a customer accepts it does not make this practice acceptable.


May I suggest that rather than handling charge it should be called a “we-would-like-you to-pay-more, but-did-not-want-to-disclose-this-until-now-charge”.

 

Don’t misunderstand me, I am all for companies charging whatever they want. Profits enable growth, new jobs and all the wonderful things that the US stands for, but don't bury those charges by using semantics.

Check out most of our major competitors, they all seem to do it. And then they seem to explain it in an innocuous way so that the customer doesn't realize she is essentially being hornswoggled. On one site, I even see this the explanation tugging on the customer’s heartstrings, “fuel prices in the industry have gone up, but we only pass on a tiny bit of this causing the need for this handling fee”.

 

Oh, so you didn't just think of raising the prices of your product, which is what most other industries do when costs go up? Instead, you create some ridiculous little fee that you don't present until the customer’s credit card is on the table

 

Payless Décor Blinds offers Free Shipping and does not insult your intelligence by then offering a Handling Charge or Order Processing fee.  Sometimes for oversize blinds we get charged quite a lot by Fedex to ship them, but we not only include this in the price, we also make the charges transparent on our ‘free shipping explanation page’.

 

The next time you see a $4.95 shipping fee at a website that touts 'Free Shipping' in big letters on their homepage, I recommend you contact the company and say, “Sorry I was going to purchase from you, but now I am going to take my business elsewhere to a company that actually discloses their prices.” I’ll bet you that company will offer to waive the fee, but that’s when you should say “sorry, too late.”

 

A vote with your dollars is the best way to drive change.
