October is here again, National Window Covering Safety Month. And like every year, we are writing about the safety in your home again. Unfortunately we do get updates about the accidents that happen around the country regarding window coverings and it is devastating every time. It’s mostly and sadly the same, dangling cords are a safety hazard to our precious children. Children love to play with anything, and that includes cords of window blinds and shades. So we encourage anyone with small children: Please get rid of your old window coverings that have strings and cords, especially in kids rooms or play areas.
All shades, including popular cellular shades, roller shades, roman shades can be ordered with a cordless lifting system. Most of the time a clear plastic handle or tassel on the bottomrail will allow you to lower and raise your shade, eliminating traditional strings. An additional bonus besides safety? A clutter free look! What about blinds? Also here, you can find wood blinds and mini blinds that have a cordless lift option along with a tilt want, eliminating cords. Even vertical blinds come with wand operated mechanisms now to avoid chains that could be a hazard. So by spending a little extra money you can protect your curious and playful children from harm, and let’s not forget our dear 4 legged critters, they will be protected as well.
To participate and bring awareness to the National Window Coverings Safety Month we are offering many of our Roller and Cellular shades with free cordless upgrades look in particular at the Good Housekeeping and Comfortex brand. So this month, not one extra dime to upgrade! Make the Right Choice: Kids…. Cords… Caution

Just a few days left!
All the big manufacturers usually have an annual price increase that hits around May or June. This year it is set for May 1. After being generous last year, considering the economy and difficulties associated with the housing and related industries, most manufactures didn’t increase pricing last year. This year no such luck. The price increase is here.
So where can we see increases and which products will be affected by it? We can say, pretty much across the board. We will see increases with all brands, including Hunter Douglas, Bali & Comfortex. Every brand will go up with most of their product lines. This will include cellular shades, wood blinds, faux wood blinds and our popular sheer shades line.
And how much will these products increase? Up to 7%. Ouch! We know… painful. The majority of shades, cellular shades etc will be around 4-5%. As always we have plenty of quotes and proposals out on the Shangri-La Sheer Shades. On a product like this, which is on the upper end in regards to overall pricing, 5% can make quite a difference. So, with that in mind, here is our blog to inform and help you beat new pricing which is just around the corner.

Hunter Douglas is one of the most popular window coverings manufacturers in the world. They offer trendsetting product lines, leading the way on design and technology. This is also the true for their faux wood blinds. Hunter Douglas Everwood Blinds come in an array of painted-like and stained-like finishes. The whites include textured finishes, while their TrueGrain line is unbelievably close in the look of a real hardwood blind, also including distressed “stains”.
While being one of the more expensive window coverings, it is still easy to find Hunter Douglas faux wood blinds on sale at one of the many Hunter Douglas retailers. One of the most popular window coverings for the home is the 2” faux wood horizontal window blinds. Faux wood blinds are both functional and energy efficient to save you money while giving your home an elegant classy look.
Faux wood blinds are made of a unique blend of North American Hardwood and specially selected composite materials. The advantages of faux wood as opposed to real wood are that faux wood blinds can endure the heat, moisture and sunlight that real wood blinds cannot. The color of real wood blinds will fade with the summer sun causing your blinds to discolor, the heat will dry them out and the moisture can cause them to bend and warp. Faux wood blinds do not have any of these side effects from the sun and the heat and they are more affordable than real wood.
With this said, be sure to check back on our sale on the Everwood blinds starting on 2/16/2009.
