Online Curtain Purchasing Advice

By Delia Melandoi

Here are 4 Top Tips to consider when you are buying curtains on the internet. Now you could apply this to shower curtains like country shower curtains or more likely to just window curtains. You’ll be more likely to be happy with your curtains when you receive them,if you follow this advice.

The First Tip: Find out if the curtain company you are trying to purchase curtains from has any experience in making curtains and be sure that it isn’t just a salesman hiding behind a fancy website giving you overseas products that are not monitored for their quality. You don’t want to sit around waiting for up to 6 weeks to get the curtains and then discover the order was wrong and that you will have to wait even longer to get it corrected.

Top Tip No.2:Look at a few different websites and choose one that provides easy to understand instructions, curtain selection and design. Ordering and check out should be quick and hassle-free. Be sure to shop around. Many online curtain shops offer made to measure curtains. Look for a shop with clear instructions and explanations. This will be a great help to you as you plan. Curtains and window treatments should reflect your personality. Superior curtain shops will offer a visual representation of your design or selection so you can see what it will look like in your home.

The Third Tip: Remember to read the measurements you give. If the ‘I accept’ box is clicked and the wrong measurements are given, you will be responsible for paying for all the corrections to the curtains if you send them back.

Top Tip #4: Those of you who aren’t in a time crunch might do well to ask to see a fabric sample before you make a commitment for that particular curtain. This will alleviate any concerns you might have with differences in look between the computer screen and real life.

The difference in color isn’t really the website’s fault or the photo’s fault, it simply shows how each computer that is made shows different colors in a different way on the computer monitor. Some colors appear dark while other look bright. Some computers will show a little more red or blue than needed.

There are a lot of things to consider, so just get a fabric sample before continuing. You should be able to get them for free from your manufacturer.
