Custom blinds are beautiful and can transform the look of any room in your home. Blinds are a popular choice for window coverings and come in a variety of price points, styles, and colors.

If you’re considering updating your window treatments without breaking the bank, custom blinds are a great choice. They look more modern than drapes while providing light control and privacy.

If you’re looking for the perfect blinds to complement your decor, we can help!

Here’s how to choose the right custom blinds for your home. 

Determine Your Needs

Blinds and window coverings are not all the same. They come in many different styles, designs, patterns, and colors. Consider the things you’re looking for in a window treatment.

Do you want to catch the early morning sunlight? Do you want to sleep in and block the natural light from flooding your bedroom?

There are blinds available to satisfy your preference. Consider the location of the window.

Do you need living room blinds, bedroom blinds, bathroom blinds, or other types of window blinds? Will there be small children or pets around?

Cordless blinds are safe and convenient. They have an electronic mechanism that raises and lowers the blinds to prevent any tangling in the cords. 

Evaluate the Window Shape and Size

One important factor when choosing blinds is the size of the window you’re covering. Be sure to measure the windows carefully so the blinds will sit well in the window and avoid an awkward fit.

Here are some helpful tips for choosing blinds for your window’s size and shape.

Small Windows

Roman blinds are perfect for smaller windows and look clean and neat. They tend to look clumsy and loose over larger windows. They’re a great option for a compact space.

Wide Windows

For wide windows and sliding doors, vertical blinds are a good choice. You can pull them aside easily to enjoy the view. Black-out vertical blinds are a popular option for bedroom windows.

Narrow Windows

Horizontal blinds look great in narrow windows. They roll up easily to allow more light in when needed.

Consider the Material

Blinds come in a variety of materials. The best choice depends on the window space and the look you hope to achieve. Some material choices include:

  • Fabrics in various styles and patterns 
  • PVC or faux materials
  • Aluminum

Custom blinds come in a variety of materials, styles, and colors. From stripes to florals to solids, there’s an option you will love.

Go for a bold shade for a dramatic effect, or choose a neutral shade for a soft light-diffusing effect.

Custom blinds add a beautiful and functional style element to any room. Today’s modern blinds are created to suit your style preferences.
