Blinds Etc has been in business for 18 years, and over the years we have encountered many customers that have had questions about blinds, or simply wanted some advice. Our knowledgeable staff is glad to answer your questions and concerns regarding your window coverings. Below is a list of common questions our staff has encountered over the years along with our responses.

How can I fix my vertical blinds? A couple of the vanes are out of alignment with the rest?

Because our track system for our vertical blinds are self-aligning, if one (or more) vanes are turned out of alignment with the rest of the vanes; begin by making sure all vanes are laying on top of each other going the same direction, then pull the chain and keep pulling until it goes back into alignment. You will hear a clicking noise while pulling the chain, which is normal. Doing this should put all of your vanes in alignment.

I need new vertical slats for my blinds. Can I buy just the slats without buying an entirely new blind?

Absolutely! Vertical slats (or vanes) can be purchased and cut to size in minutes. We have a fantastic selection of replacement slats, all at prices that cannot be beat.

What can I put on my windows that will allow light to come in, but prevents people outside from seeing in?

A great way to allow light in to your room, but still have your privacy is to cover your windows with roller/solar shades! These shades not only give you the privacy, but still allow you to see outside and have light enter your room. . Roller shades and solar shades also provide excellent insulation! They come in multiple colors and styles, so they will fit with any decor.
