What are window blinds?
Blinds are window coverings with moveable slats that raise and lower or move side to side to control privacy and light. Slat blinds come in 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 2 inch and 2 1/2 inches and are a stylish, cost effective window covering solution for any room. The slats on blinds are often cordless, but pull-cord window blinds are also available.
Most blinds are made of sturdy, long-lasting materials such as wood, faux wood, aluminum or vinyl; however, some vertical blinds come in fabric options, too.
What are custom window blinds?
Custom window blinds are made to order using high-quality materials specifically selected by you during a complementary in-home consultation. Windows are measured on-site, and finished blinds are professionally installed in your home. Custom blinds are easier than buying blinds online or in a retail store because they take the guesswork out of choosing, measuring and installing window treatments and ensure your windows will be beautiful and functional for years.
What are the different types of window blinds?
There are four general types of window blinds, but mix them with our colors, finishes and design options, and they combine to make thousands of customized blinds for homes. Here are the four types you need to know to get started:
Custom wood blinds
Wood blinds are made of genuine wood and come in a variety of colors and customization options. They’re also available in wider slat sizes, which offer the look of plantation shutters at a fraction of the cost. Learn more about custom wood blinds.
Faux wood blinds
Faux wood window blinds are made of durable polymers that mimic the look of wood blinds and shutters. Choose faux wood blinds for spaces near water or with high humidity, or if you want the look of wood blinds without the cost. Learn more about faux wood blinds.
Aluminum blinds, also called mini blinds, combine sleek minimalism with function. Small, easy-to-clean slats come in a rainbow of colors and make aluminum blinds lightweight yet perfect for large windows and work spaces. Learn more about aluminum blinds.
Vertical blinds are an ideal window covering for sliding glass doors and other large windows. They are made in a range of styles and materials, including vinyl, wood, woven wood and fabric. Vertical blinds collect less dust than horizontal blinds, making them good for allergy sufferers or those who want less maintenance. Learn more about vertical blinds.
How to choose blinds for your home
Different types of blinds work best in different environments, so consider your needs carefully before investing in blinds or other window coverings. Here are things we recommend clients take into account when selecting blinds:
Light control. All types of blinds are excellent options for controlling light. Moveable slats limit and direct light where you want, protecting your view while giving you control over your privacy. If you need versatile window blinds that work well in a number of scenarios, wood blinds, faux wood blinds, aluminum blinds or vinyl blinds will serve you well.
Energy efficiency. There are many energy efficient window coverings, but the most energy efficient blinds are wooden blinds and faux wooden blinds. These work well to block light and keep rooms cool because the materials — natural wood and durable polymers — are great insulators.
Visual impact. Nothing beats the traditional look of blinds, especially wooden blinds and faux wooden blinds. They add an architectural element to rooms that contrasts beautifully with softer treatments like curtains and drapes. Choose blinds for living rooms with lots of upholstered furniture, or place blinds in bedrooms to contrast with soft furnishings like bedding and pillows.
Value. Genuine wood blinds and faux wood blinds increase the value of a home, especially during resale. Aluminum blinds are an affordable, durable option for high-use areas, and both aluminum and vertical blinds work well on large windows.
Maintenance. All types of custom blinds, from wood and faux wood blinds to aluminum and vinyl blinds, are extremely easy to maintain through thoughtful use and occasional cleaning. Learn more about how to clean wood, faux wood, vertical and aluminum blinds.
Motorized blinds. Almost all types of blinds can be turned into automatic window blinds with a simple motorization option. This allows users to open and close blinds remotely, all while reducing wear and tear on blinds.
