Mini Blinds

Mini blinds are cost-effective as well as stylish. Today, there are many different mini blinds on the market that come in an array of styles, colors, and thickness to help you make the right choice to enhance the beauty of your home or office while ensuring you receive the privacy you desire.

With mini blinds, you will have the privacy you need as well as be able to let the sun shine in by adjusting the blinds. The thickness of the blinds offers you the ability to keep out as much light as you desire. The colors available are almost endless, so you can easily find the right blinds to match the decor of your home or office.

Mini Blinds

The best part of all is that mini blinds are much easier to maintain that other types of blinds, which makes them not only cost-effective but also time-saving. Cleaning the mini blinds is truly the only maintenance you will need to perform and it is a breeze. In most cases, all you will need to do is vacuum the blinds when you vacuum the floor. If you do need to wash them, do so with care and use dawn dish soap. Dawn dish soap removes grim better and is safe to use on all kinds of material. Do not use force as you can bend mini blinds quite easily and you do not want to cause damage.

In most cases, mini blinds are not as durable as wooden ones; however, they do very well in many rooms in the home without taking away from the beauty. If you do not want to use mini blinds in your living room or bedroom, but are looking for a type of blind for the kitchen or bathroom that is easy to clean, than mini blinds is a great alternative.

In the majority of cases, mini blinds can be installed without any special tools or hiring a contractor. The main thing to remember is that you must purchase the correct size or you will not be doing yourself any good at all. Measure the entire inside frame of the window so you can have an accurate measurement to ensure you purchase the correct size blinds. Going with standard blinds is not always the best option as not all windows are standard. If you purchase blinds that are too short, you will be very disappointed at the look. Take the time to measure and ensure you purchase the color, style and size you need to enhance the beauty of your home and save money at the same time.

You do not have to spend hundreds of dollars to redecorate, just invest in mini blinds and give your home a face lift that will give it personality.

  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.

  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.

  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.
