  1. Ya know, when we bought our house, the windows had shades on them and we just left them there – and they are still there now. Our house is old & the windows are an odd size, so the shades are custom.

  2. I’m in desperate need for mini blinds in my basement. I have them in every other room and I love them. They were already here when we bought our house so my husband will have to put up the new ones!

  3. Mini blinds certainly aren’t what they used to be; they’re so much better and more stylish now! We need to replace the blinds in a few of the bedrooms, and mini blinds are the way to go.

  4. The topic of window is in our home. We live in a home built in the 70’s and since we have such an amazing view we want to avoid the blinds but.. we do have some really high windows that need blinds… eventually.

  5. We do mini blinds too. Helps keep the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer :)

  6. We desperately need new mini blinds! I think we will be getting some soon for our kitchen!

  7. We have mini blinds in most of our rooms. They’re functional and they don’t look terrible!

  8. I like the look of mini blinds. I think they’re really sharp in a home office.

  9. I may have to look into getting miniblinds. I am so tired of my curtains, I have to wash them all the time and it’s a pain in the butt! It would be easier to just dust blinds!

  10. I definitely need to do this in our new office/guest room. We got new furniture, rug and painted, but I think blinds would really bring the room together.

  11. We have HUGE windows with curtains. I’d rather have vertical blinds for sure.

  12. We need new mini blinds in our house! :) These look nice!

  14. Window treatments really can set a room on fire!

  15. I like that they set inside the window and don’t protrude into the space.

  17. We have blinds in our house, but I think they’re as old as the house is LOL This is a great reminder of how easy it is to replace them. I think it’s time!

  18. Mini blinds have come a LONG way. We still have a few in our house– can be super easy to use and flexible to work with any design!

  19. Those look great! I like that they sit inside the window and don’t stick out.

  20. I’ve always liked blinds. I like that they can be totally pulled up and tucked away so you don’t even see them, and then at night they offer the privacy.

  21. I’ve been saying that we are going to get new blinds for a while now. We still have the same ones up that we had when we bought the house! Thanks for the reminder!
