What goes in to selecting the right custom blinds?
Selecting the right custom blinds for your home is more than just selecting what looks good. There are multiple factors that go into making the perfect choice.
1. Light Control - do you need to just filter light so as to not blind you when you are sitting at your kitchen table? Are you needing UV sun protection for your furniture? Or do you need complete blackout for a bedroom?
2. Insulation - if you have older windows, purchasing custom blinds with an R-value insulation level is a great choice. Cellular shades can do a great job of insulating from heat or cold. If you have a room that gets a lot of bright, natural light, insulating shades can also save money on electrical bills by keeping the heat out in the summer.
3. Style - do you love to show off the latest trends? Or do you prefer, the timeless classic look? Your custom blinds can really make a statement in your home about your style and personality. And when you are looking to update your home for future resale, a classic, subtle blinds is a great choice.
4. Budget - when you are budget conscience but still want the elegant look and style of custom blinds, there are still some great options available. Wood blinds - whether painted white or with a beautiful stain, are a very affordable option for those on a budget. Other things to consider are upgrades. Cordless blinds are an upcharge and there are great safety alternatives if this is a concern. Top down bottom up options on pleated and cellular shades are also a higher-priced upgrade.
