colour not accurate
Patricia Crosby from Hamilton 2 | Jan 24, 2013
Having dealt with Blinds To Go before and pleased with the product, I again went there to order blinds for my living room bay window when I moved into a new home. I wanted white blinds that were not too heavy and the sales rep suggested wood for their light weight and insulating properties. I paid to have the windows measured and the blinds installed and when the installer came with the blinds I noticed they were not white, but a light beige colour which was not what I wanted against my pure white vinyl window and pure white freshly painted trim. If I had been told that these blinds would not be white, I would never have ordered them. The sample certainly looked white in the store. I was told that's the colour that the wood blind comes in due to oil being added to the the wood and if I wanted a pure white, the only option was another blind at twice the price. This was not acceptable and I reluctantly agreed to accept the light beige colour blinds. I would have expected some sort of consideration for this, but none was forthcoming. For anyone else wanting WHITE blinds, do not go with the wood. Also, I see in another review the homeowner ordered white blinds for a southern exposure window which they are not happy with and my window is also facing south. Should be interesting in the summer. I am not happy with this outcome and I won't be dealing with this company again. On a positive note, thanks to the installer Jim for his expertise and help.
