I know we talk a lot about the benefits of doing business with an independent retailer versus the Hunter Douglas dealers of the world, but you may be asking why? What is the actual difference between these two options? That’s a fair question. Here we share why we believe your best option is an independent, local consultant.

Hunter Douglas Dealers
While Hunter Douglas is a well-known name, this is simply because they are everywhere and serve so many people. Which, of course, means your level of personal service will inevitably suffer. While they do offer in-home consultations, the person coming out to help you decide how to dress your windows may only be a salesperson rather than someone with in-depth knowledge of window treatments and décor elements. Hunter Douglas dealers cannot offer you the widest selection of products as they can only show you Hunter Douglas branded options, which leaves you with limited choices for your décor. It also means your décor is less likely to be unique to you.
Ultimately, a Hunter Douglas dealer is constrained by the regulations and policies of their agreement with Hunter Douglas. If you want something highly customized in-house that can be adjusted as you go, forget it. Keep your time back and forth between design and construction to a minimum with a local company that can adjust to your needs in real time, and make multiple visits to a showroom non-existent. Austin Blind Faith’s concierge service ensures that if you don’t want to, you never have to set foot outside of your home to get the look you want for your windows (but if you like the showroom experience, we have an awesome one for you to peruse).
If you are ready to discover what it feels like to have a fully customized and personalized experience in your window décor, contact Austin Blind Faith here or give us a call for your complimentary in-home window covering consultation and bask in the glow of never-ending compliments on your savvy style!
