Terms of Service


Window Measurements

We will ship the exact measurements that you provide us.  We will not deduct any measurement from what you order.  It is important that you take this in consideration before you place your order.  

Inside mount
An inside mount fits within the window frame. You will need to supply us the exact measurements that you would like the window treatment to be. I.E.  A ½” deduction is recommended from the actual width window measurement to come up with the exact blind size. For a more complete and visual guide to measuring for blinds and shades, see our How to Measure Guide.

Outside mount
An outside mount overlaps the window opening. You will need to supply us the exact measurements that you would like the window treatment to be. This includes adding extra for the width and the height to clear any trim, etc. For a more complete and visual guide to measuring for blinds and shades, see our How to Measure Guide.

Color Accuracy

Due to the fact that our products can not be returned; if an exact color match is required please request a sample before placing your order. Once you receive your sample, keep in mind that all samples may still have minimal color variations. We recommend that you order all of your blinds of a given color at one time. Sometimes there are slight variations between dye lots.

Do I Need to Buy Hardware or Screws?

All hardware is provided. Screws are not provided because different screws are needed in different applications. In most applications a #6 x 1 1/2" screw is appropriate. However, the exact length and type of screw will vary depending on whether you are mounting your treatments into drywall, wood, concrete or metal. As a rule of thumb you will need two screws per bracket and 2 brackets per window blind.

Payment Options

All orders are paid for when your order is placed. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted online using PayPal.

Changes, Cancellations and Refunds
It is important that you are sure of your purchase decisions prior to finalizing your order.  We automatically charge your credit card for the total sale price, including shipping, immediately after you complete your online order.

Cancellations and Changes in orders can only be made for a period of 12 hours after your online order is finalized.

In the event that you cancel your order during this 12 hour period, we will refund your money minus the restocking charge, where applicable, and the 5% administrative charge. We cannot refund money or issue any credits for a credit card purchase if the cancellation or change occurs at any time beyond this 12 hour period.

There may be some occasions where the material will be delayed due to out-of-stock materials, shipping delays, holidays, or other factors beyond our control.
