COLOR MATCHING

Colors may vary by printer and monitor. Light Consultants LLC. recommends requesting a free sample for best color matching results. Colors can also vary slightly from dye lot, so it is always best to purchase a full set of matching blinds for each room at the same time. Additionally, sometimes some colors and window treatment lines may be discontinued by our suppliers. This will make it next to impossible to order additional window coverings that match the ones you may have previously purchased. We recommend ordering all the products for a single room in the same order (whenever possible) to avoid any unforeseen circumstances.
