Why So Many People Are Turning To Mini Blinds For Window Treatments

Aug 17, 2007
Mini blinds are very popular, and no wonder; they are available in a variety of colors and finishes. They can even be made at home! No matter what look you are trying to achieve in a room, with the selection available these days, any color scheme can be complemented by using a mini blind. Custom orders are also available, if a particular size or style is not readily available from open stock.

These stylish window treatments also give us needed privacy and are useful for keeping the sun's rays from entering our homes in hot weather. The use of mini blinds allows homeowners to choose how much natural light a given space is to receive, while not entirely compromising insulation. One particular style of mini blind allows fresh air to circulate into the room by opening or adjusting the angle of the mini blind's slats.

In another design option, the mini blind is constructed in such a fashion that the slats actually lie between a couple of transparent pieces of fabric that serve to diffuse light while opened. Still another option in the mini blind realm is to choose a vertical blind which has fabric mounted onto the slats in order to obtain a look very similar to a curtain.

Mini blinds can be opened and closed in several ways. The simplest of these involves a cord or a metal chain; some people prefer to open and close their window coverings using a remote control.

Several materials can be used to construct mini blinds. Consumers can choose from vinyl, wood, faux wood, or aluminum. Mini blinds made from genuine wood contain this product's unique grain patterns, along with a variety of natural hues. Vinyl or aluminum blinds complement a different decorating style. Their classic profiles work with both a traditional or modern theme.

If you like the look of a natural wood product but are not able to justify the cost, you may want to consider a faux wood mini blind. These synthetic products are constructed using PVC or another composite material and will give you the look you crave but at a much lower cost. If price is a main consideration, aluminum would also be a good choice. They offer easy maintenance and are relatively easy to clean. By far the least expensive option is to choose vinyl blinds; the disadvantage of this type is that they are available in standard sizes only.
