I’m looking to get roller shades and cellular (honeycomb) shades for a new home.
I’ve heard that Hunter Douglas is the “best”, but I’m not really sure what that means. Are their fabric qualities and up/down mechanisms actually better? I got a quote from a local installer and it was super expensive.
Then, I heard that Budget Blinds carries Enlightened Style, which is their private label version of Hunter Douglas that is ~20% cheaper. Still expensive.
Then, I looked on Blinds.com, and they look to be 1/3 to 1/2 the price of Hunter Douglas. What is the difference between Blinds.com private label and Hunter Douglas? I’ve heard that a lot of window treatments are made by the same manufacturers.
Are the internal mechanisms and quality actually higher with Levelor, Bali, Hunter Douglas, or is it just that they might have a larger selection of colors / fabric?
