Guide to Buying Window Blinds

Dec 10 2009

With so many window blinds available to choose from, you get to choose not only based on the cost-effectiveness of blinds but also how you want the blinds to look. You can choose different fabrics, designs, and features such as top down and bottom up openings.

So while you are shopping, you will have plenty of options and choices. To make this easier, we have developed a guide to window blinds shopping.

Purpose of Blinds:
The main purpose of blinds is to keep the light out and to protect your privacy. In the summer, we want the house to be cool and in the winter, we want the house to be warm.

As for privacy, this will vary depending on the location. You need to choose based on how much privacy you need for the given room. You will also want to choose upgrades based on your privacy needs as well.

Shopping for Window Blinds:
It is very easy to get distracted by all the pretty colors and types of blinds available. However, you need to keep in mind the purpose of the blinds when shopping. It does you no good to buy beautiful wood blinds for the bathroom and then a year later find that they have warped. It would have been more practical to buy faux wood blinds. They have the same beautiful look but are more suitable for high humidity locations.

If you are having a hard time choosing, order some free samples. This way you can get an idea of what they look like in your home and get valuable coupons as well.
