Custom Made Window Blinds

When you choose custom-made window blinds, you are choosing a product that never goes out of style, and it can be used as a standalone window treatment, or you can choose to soften the appearance by adding drapery panels or a soft and flowing valance at the top of them. Window blinds are an energy-efficient product that will insulate your windows when they are closed. You can easily adjust your lighting, privacy, and heat gain by opening or closing them. You can also have filtered light by adjusting the vanes as well.

Wonderful Wood Blinds

They are naturally energy efficient because of the cells in hardwood trees and your blinds. Wood blinds allow you to match them identically to any color of paint or stain that you wish to match other amenities in your home. You may choose to match the stain on your trim, or you can choose to have them painted in a color that matches your current decor. Some homeowners love the addition of a custom wood valance or cornice with hardwood blinds to make it a focal point of beauty in any space. Wood blinds have wider slats than other types of blinds to give them more of a shutter appearance for elegance and beauty and at a fraction of the cost of shutters.

Fabulous Faux Wood Blinds

Faux wood blinds look identical to real wood blinds, but they have several advantages over hardwood. They are made especially for high humidity and moisture areas, such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and mudrooms. They resist cracking, chipping, warping, fading, discoloring, peeling, and breaking in warm and moist climates. Faux wood blinds match any decor, and they can also be stained or painted in any color you wish to match your decor seamlessly. You get all of these remarkable qualities, and they are also at a lower price point than hardwood blinds.

Stylish Modern Aluminum Blinds

Aluminum blinds have come a long way since the first mini blinds in white and off-white hit the market years ago. Mini blinds have 1/2-inch vanes and are still available for smaller windows. You can choose from wider vanes in 1 and 2-inch styles that look much better in oversized windows because the mini blinds look too busy in a large window. Aluminum window blinds for Raleigh are sleek and have clean lines with a wide selection of colors available now and different finishes to make them suitable for any decor you may have. Aluminum blinds are lightweight and durable, great for affordability and functionality, and they work well for residential and commercial settings.

Vertical Blinds for Vast Expanses of Glass

If you have large picture windows, which are popular here in Raleigh, or a sliding glass door, then vertical blinds are the perfect window covering for you. Vertical blinds were made especially for large expanses of glass because horizontal blinds would wear out the lifting mechanism prematurely because of the sheer weight of the blinds. Vertical blinds make your rooms taller because they open and close side to side. Custom vertical blinds can stack to either side of your window or door that you choose. You can rotate the vertical vanes to adjust your light and give you excellent lighting control. Vertical blinds are also very easy to keep clean because the dust doesn’t settle on them as it does with horizontal blinds. You also have many options in the materials with this type of blind, from vinyl, fabric, wood, and even woven wood materials for a more casual feel in a room.
