Window blinds have been important to homes, businesses, schools and medical buildings for many years. They offer privacy, light control, and the ability to improve the look of a window. Most blinds come with slats that are 1 inch or 2 inches wide. Blinds Chalet offers these sizes as well as a 2 1/2 inch size. There are several different types of window blinds available on the market today and Blinds Chalet carries them all.
Blinds are made from a variety of materials. There are wood blinds and vertical blinds, typically made from real wood and stained to add beauty. There are faux wood blinds and vertical blinds that are made from a composite material. This composite is made up of plastic and wood shavings along with other polymers. Aluminum mini blinds are made from a high-grade aluminum and other high-grade components.
Window blinds also come with several standard features that are useful to know in order to pick the right one for your home. Cordless is a very popular option for blinds because it makes operating your blinds more simple and protects your children and pets. Route-less ladders are also a fantastic option. Traditional blinds have routed holes where the line runs from the headrail. These holes allow some ambient light through and they don’t fully protect your privacy. Route-less gets rid of these holes and eliminates any privacy concerns and also reduces ambient light in your blind. Our smart privacy option is similar to route-less. There are additional upgrades available, so make sure you look for them on the Products Page.

Commonly Asked Questions About Window Blinds
How do I get my blinds to go down?
If you have a corded blind, bring your cords to the center of the blind to release the cord lock so your blinds will go down. A cordless blind can be pulled from the center of the blind to the desired length.
How do you untangle a blind cord?
If you have a knot in a blind cord, remove the tassel on the end of the cord and unravel the cord and reattach the tassel.
How do you open window blinds?
Wood, Faux, Aluminum and Vertical blinds can be operated with a cord tilt or wand tilt. The Wood, Faux and Aluminum will have a set of cords to pull the blind up and a cord tilt or wand to open and close the slats. The Vertical blind will have either a cord and beaded chain OR a wand to open and traverse the vertical slats.
Are cordless blinds better than corded?
Cordless verses corded is a personal preference. If you have small children or pets that look out the window a cordless blind would be the best option. A corded blind may be easier to operate if you are elderly or have a window that is not within reach to push up.
How do you let down new blinds?
Take all rubber bands off the blind. Bring all the cords to the center of the blind to release the lock on the cords. Gently lower the blinds to the desired height. If you have a cordless blind, just pull the bottom rail down firmly to the desired height.
