Local Big-Box Store's Knock-off product.

The “plantation blinds” displayed in a local big-box store embarrassingly warped!

When it comes to window coverings and blinds, you really do get what you pay for. If you are in the market shopping for Window Coverings, you may have stopped into a local big box store to check out what was available. A usual aisle filled with run-of-the-mill blinds from popular brands and the store’s own knock-off products. One of our very own Dealer, Made in the Shade Clarksville, noticed “plantation blinds” displayed in a local big-box store that were so shockingly embarrassing that he took the photo on right.

This display was a classic example of the great truth! You get what you pay for! Most of the big box stores offer their own label on cut-down blinds, and maybe one of the big manufacturers. Is it really worth it to spend a few extra dollars on Graber products?

At Made in the Shade, we’re convinced that the answer is a resounding YES! Off-brand knockoff is lucky to have a 1-year warranty. The popular name brand blind has a 10-year warranty. Sure, that sounds impressive, but is it really? With Graber, every blind has a limited lifetime warranty. Yes you heard right. Every. Single. Blind!

Even the least-expensive line, Simple Selections, offers this incredible warranty. Graber stands by their product — which is why we stand by them.

See the Difference!

But what makes our Graber blinds so much better? Is there really that much of a difference? Absolutely. The difference is in the slats.

David Shelton, Made in the Shade Clarksville Dealer, decided to pick up one of those cheap “plantation blinds” at the local store and cut out one of the slats (It was surprisingly easy to cut!). Then, pulled out our Simple Selections sample book and set the “plantation blind” on top of our lowest-priced Graber Faux Wood blind. From the top, there’s not much of a difference. Heck, the store-bought sample even has a nifty texture.

The difference is in the thickness. The Graber sample is almost twice the thickness as the store-bought slat, and what a difference that makes! You really do get what you pay for — and Graber gives real value for every dollar.

Takes a surprisingly little amount of effort to cut off a sample of the store-bought slat!

We pulled out the Faux Wood page of our Simple Selections sample book to see if there’s a difference.
