Get the Skinny on Cellular Shades, Roman Blinds, and More
You can’t just leave your windows bare—but at the same time, often the blinds or shades that were installed when you moved in just don’t cut it, and the off-the-shelf products aren’t much better. To really give your windows the treatments they deserve, you may find yourself needing to go down the road of custom blinds. There are many benefits to going custom: you can get a precise fit, especially for uncommon window shapes and sizes, you can choose the colour and the design, and add the features that suit your home. From cellular shades and roman blinds to mini blinds and beyond, the customization options are nearly endless.
If you’ve ever moved into a high-rise apartment, chances are there were some pretty standard, run-of-the-mill plain white mini blinds on the windows. However, while they may be ubiquitous, these blinds are anything but boring—you just need to know how to use them right! Available in a whole range of colours and in materials like aluminum or wood, you can inject some much-needed life into these versatile blinds.
Also called honeycomb shades, these are an increasingly popular choice for the energy-conscious. Their signature design creates a barrier that increases the energy efficiency of a home, and they’re stylish in a minimalist fashion too. And since cellular shades can be opened from the top or the bottom (or both) they’re a versatile and flexible solution too.
Some of the most flexible custom blinds, roller blinds can be manufactured with a variety of materials. They can be made from transparent or light-filtering fabrics, or they can be made as special “blackout” blinds—perfect for anyone who loves sleeping in or catching a mid-day nap to recharge the batteries! These blinds also come in a number of sub-varieties, such as alternating and silhouette shades, and are perfect for people who like to have total control over natural light in their home.
For a classy and stylish take on window coverings, look no further than Roman blinds. These blinds are made of fabric fitted over a pulley system, and are made to order with your choice of fabric—allowing you to make a personal and one-of-a-kind statement. The end result is an incredibly simple yet attractive window covering that adds a flair to whatever room it’s in.
What way will you go with your custom blinds? Cellular or Roman, mini blinds or rollers, the choice is yours—and when you have them custom-made, you’ll experience the benefits that only a personal touch can provide.
