ORANGE, CA - (Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - Similar to the fashion industry, the styles and designs of window coverings are constantly changing. And Budget Blinds is always ready to meet the challenge of keeping up with the latest trends and designs. This year, Budget Blinds has launched a new collection of window coverings with lasting elegance, designed to accommodate today's modern household.
This collection, Inspired Drapes®, sold exclusively through Budget Blinds, offers contemporary soft window coverings to satisfy a wide range of tastes in style, patterns, fabrics and accessories. The line includes drapes, curtains, shades, valances and cornices, with specialized features, such as motorization, and customizable options, such as decorative trims and button drapery with contrasting bands, that will bring to life any customer's vision for their room and inspire possibilities they may not have even considered.
The Inspired Drapes collection isn't only a new line of exclusive soft window coverings; it also marks the launch of a new collaboration that will enhance the Budget Blinds' customer experience. Budget Blinds has teamed up with designer and founder of Window Dressings, Deb Barrett, who will work as a design consultant for Inspired Drapes. Barrett has worked in the window coverings industry since 1975, and during her award-winning career has become a highly recognized window fashions designer and a nationwide representative of the window coverings industry.
Together with Inspired Drapes, Barrett will help create training tools to better educate Budget Blinds style consultants, so they are even more equipped with the knowledge and expertise needed when they visit customers for their in-home consultations. Through a close collaboration with Budget Blinds executives and vendors, Barrett will give live presentations as well as produce informational videos and develop a curriculum to help build both the Inspired Drapes line and the relationship between Budget Blinds style consultants and their customers. The partnership is sure to lead to great results for both, giving consultants the tools they need to ensure customers receive the best style advice, while also reaffirming the customer's trust in the Budget Blinds franchise.
In addition to equipping style consultants with new tools from an industry specialist, Inspired Drapes also stands as an innovative addition to the Budget Blinds experience through its online tool the Inspired Drapes Lookbook. This interactive publication gives customers the ability to browse Inspired Drapes styles from home, so they can gain valuable insight into design possibilities for their home. The Lookbook contains design and accessory tips for Inspired Drapes products, as well as advice on which styles work well with various window and room designs.
