Custom blinds can be the perfect finishing touch for your home interiors, helping you control light levels and privacy levels while also adding an attractive window dressing. While many people make do with standard miniblinds, you can choose another style made with a different material or aesthetic, and even look for custom blinds that come with special features.
Here are some of the characteristics to customize when shopping for custom blinds.
1. Material and style
While typical miniblinds are made of plastic materials, you can also look for more eco-friendly blinds such as those made out of bamboo or natural fabrics. Or, if you want a higher-class look than the plastic miniblinds will provide, go for a higher-end material such as wood.
Different styles of blinds are made with different types of materials. For example, the styles made out of fabric can include roman shades, honeycomb shades, and similar styles. Mini blinds, vertical blinds, and others are often made of plastic.
2. Size and color
Even if you have oddly shaped or sized windows, you can likely find blinds that will fit. For example, you may be able to simply send the dimensions of your window to a custom blinds company and have them make the blinds to your specifications. You can also choose between different thicknesses, such as choosing between a double cell and a triple cell design when shopping for cellular shades.
Blinds are available in a dizzying number of colors as well. You can choose a color based on your interior design style and colors for each room. You can also try different swatches to help you fine-tune which color looks best in the space.
3. Special features
Many custom blinds can come with special features. For example, you can have blinds installed that are motorized and include a remote control so you can move them more easily and from across the room. Another special feature is the ability to block out direct sunlight.
Eco-friendly blinds are another specialized type to look for. Some blinds are made of sustainable materials (such as bamboo and jute) to ensure the origin of your shades is environmentally friendly. Others focus on helping the environment by keeping excess heat out of your house to enable better passive cooling.
These are just some of the characteristics of your blinds that you can customize when you're shopping for your window treatments. Get in touch with a custom blinds seller today to learn more about custom blinds and blind installation for your home.
