Why Cheaper Isn’t Always Better

Cheaper window coverings isnt always better

Trying to save money on an initial purchase may end up costing more in the long run regarding window coverings. Window coverings can have a substantial up-front cost, but also can prove a wise investment in their value and performance.

Saving money is important, but when choosing products, going with a higher quality choice can present savings over the long term.

When choosing inexpensive window treatments, the product may be made with weaker, lower-quality materials. Lower quality materials can mean that the product will be more likely to:

  • Warp or fade in color faster
  • Have operating cords lose strength sooner
  • Fray more quickly on the edges of roller shades, roman shades, and cellular shades
  • Fail earlier with the operating system
  • Close more loosely over time
  • Not be as energy efficient

Most window blinds can last between 5-10 years, with a longer life span if you choose shutters.

For example, let’s say you initially spend $3,000 on window treatments for your entire home. An alternative choice might have been for another set of higher quality for $5,000, but with a longer, lifetime warranty. With a shorter lifespan and lesser warranty, there is a possibility you would have to repair or replace your treatments. That lower initial cost may now end up costing more due to the quality of the material and warranty period.

Not only is it important on what you purchase for your home, it is just as important as where you purchase them. Being able to have an actual location and purchase from a physical showroom makes it easier to shop and receive service.  House of Window Covering’s showroom and store has been at its location since 2007. It’s designers can help you choose the best options for your home.

Choosing higher quality, warrantied products from a reputable outlet at their actual showroom location can prove to save you more money over the long term.
