Ideal for rooms with lots of sunshine or moisture (i.e.  kitchens and bathrooms), our 2 1/2" faux wood blinds offer premium features at a price that can't be beat.

Designed to emulate the look of wood blinds in color, texture and density, these synthetic blinds will not chip, warp or crack and will outlast natural wood blinds in durability and shape retention.  The wider 2 1/2" slats on these blinds provide greater view-through and light than the 1" and 2" alternatives.

  • Standard 3" valance included at no cost
  • Color-coordinated ladders, cords and tassels
  • Durable steel headrail provides years of worry-free operation
  • Blinds under 12" wide will have a center wand tilt only and no lift operation
  • Lifetime limited warranty
  • Specifications
  • Width 8" - 96"
  • Height 10" - 120"
  • Minimum inside-mount depth 3/4"
  • Minimum flush-mount depth 3 1/2"
  • Minimum outside-mount space 2"
  • Headrail depth and height 2 1/4" x 2"

Order your blind by following the easy steps below!
step 1

Select a product color: (4 available)

Learn more about product color

Product Color:

Choose a color for your product or select sample swatches to order.

FREE Swatch Samples:

Blindsgalore's Free Swatch Samples program lets you touch and compare fabrics, materials and/or colors before you order your custom window covering.  Simply click the scissor icon to add a free swatch to your cart (if a color doesn't have a scissor icon, swatches are temporarily unavailable for that color).  Order your swatches, then order the perfect color window treatment!

Color Disclaimer:

Although we color-correct each scan as accurately as possible, the colors displayed on your screen may not depict an accurate reproduction of the actual swatch color due to the inconsistencies of various computer monitors.

step 2

Select a mount option:

Learn more about mount

Mount refers to whether the treatment will be mounted within the window frame (inside mount) or on the wall surrounding the window (outside mount).

For an inside mount, please provide us with the exact dimensions of the window frame.  Any deductions to the size of your shade will be made by the manufacturer.

For an outside mount, please enter the width and height of the window-covering itself.  We recommend adding at least 4 inches to the width of the window, and 4 inches to the height of the window.  This will allow for proper overlap with the wall.

Inside

Inside

?

Inside mount blinds will fit within the window casing for a clean, custom look.  Enter the actual size of your window casing, NOT the size of your old blind.  We will make the necessary deductions to make the blind fit properly.  Make sure your window meets the minimum inside mount specifications, or flush mount specifications if desired.

?

Outside mount blinds will be installed on the wall above the window, covering the window entirely.  Enter the size you want the finished product to be, including the desired overlap beyond the window.  The ordered height will include the hardware for blinds and shades.  The width of the headrail may be slightly wider than the ordered width to accomodate operating controls and valance returns.  The outside mount option is required if your window is not deep enough to install the blind as an inside mount.

step 4

Select a lift option:

Learn more about lift

The control which raises and lowers the blind or shade; options vary by product but may include a traditional pull cord, continuous cord control, cordless lift, or motorization.

No Lift

No Lift

?

Standard cord lift with a cord lock mechanism for reliable and easy positioning of the blind.  Simply pull the cord to raise to the desired height, and the cord locks in place.  Pull the cord slightly to release and lower the blind.  Cord can be positioned on either side of the blind. 

Cord
?

This option is for blinds under 12" net width.  Blinds less than 12" will have a tilt wand in the center of the headrail to rotate the slats open and closed, but no lift operation.

step 5

Select a tilt option:

Learn more about tilt

The position (and type of mechanism, if applicable) of the control that tilts the slats of the blind open and closed.  It is usually most convenient to have the tilt control and the lift control on opposite sides of the blind.

Center Cord

Center Cord

?

Choose the center cord tilt option for blinds under 12".  Cord will be positioned in the center of blind to open and close slats.  This option is only available for blinds less than 12" width.

?

Rotates the horizontal slats open or closed by pulling up or down on either tilt cord.  The cord tilt option provides a uniform appearance to blinds ordered with standard cord lift.

Cord
step 6

Select a routeless option:

Learn more about routeless

You can upgrade your blind for additional privacy and light control by choosing a routeless cording option on horizontal blinds, or with inserts for vertical blinds.

No routeless

No routeless

?

Instead of routing holes, routeless blinds feature notches on the backside of each slat.  This provides greater privacy and light control, along with a cleaner look and tighter slat closure.

step 7

Select a valance option:

Learn more about valances

Valances are the decorative piece used as a finishing touch to hide the headrail of a window treatment.  The valance material typically matches the material of the product unless otherwise stated.  Depending on the product, you may be able to choose the valance style, color, or size.

Decorative Valance

Decorative Valance

?

3" decorative valance provides an upscale, finished look to your blinds. Valance returns are included with outside mount blinds.

Valance size: 3"
step 8

Select a hardware option:

Learn more about hardware

Your order will come with the necessary hardware for a typical installation based on the options and mount type you have selected.  Additional hardware, such as extension brackets and hold-down brackets, is available for special mounting requirements.  Other hardware, such as cord cleats or extension poles, may also be available.

Long Extension Brackets

Long Extension Brackets

If your windows have obstructions like door handles that will interfere with the operation of your blind, you may need to order extension brackets (outside mount only).  These brackets will provide the extra space needed to clear the obstruction. 
If your blind has a valance, please note that the valance returns (the sides of the valance that cover the ends of the headrail) could be made longer because of the extension bracket.  Order extension brackets only if the extra space is needed, otherwise the valance may not properly fit.

To eliminate the swaying of blinds installed on doors or in windy locations, we recommend the use of hold down brackets.  These brackets snap into holes on the bottom rail of the blind when it is in the fully lowered position.  To raise the blind, it must be unfastened from the bracket.  Hold down brackets are available for outside mount use only.

Optional information:

Learn more about optional information

Used on our order forms, the window nickname is one that you assign to the windows in a room.  This helps you keep track of your order when a room has multiple windows.  We recommend including a room name and numbering the windows sequentially (for example, "Bedroom window #2"), but you may use any system you like.

"Beautiful"

by Saving Coin from Texas on March 11, 2009

My Husband and I love them! They really are very high quality, the best value around, and 2 1/2 inch blinds rock! They look so shutter-like, from the inside and out....We were struggling a little, alot really, when using the screws that came with them, so took a quick trip and purchased some flat-head drywall screws (an expert in the blinds department at the store suggested them) and wow, we were drilling skippy fast and done to enjoy! We just ordered more for the rest of the windows in our home, Yah!!! We self-measured, self-installed, hadn't ever done it before, and they look fantastic, so you can do it...save some coin! The instructions are kinda lacking, but no worries, just use your common sense with these, and/or someone else's too, or call the company...they're really customer-friendly.  (Order samples, they arrive in less than a week and we would have been out-o-luck on our color matching, if we hadn't of:)

"The Look Of Luxury"

by JA from Vancouver, WA on December 2, 2008

These blinds exceeded my expectations.  The quality is exceptional and they are very easy to install.  I installed them over nearly window in the house and they look great both inside and out.  My only disappointment was they they could not be ordered narrow enough for 2 of my windows.  I ordered similar blinds from a competitor (with a company name similar to Blindsgalore) and by comparison was disappointed in the comparitive lack of quality (rough edges, slats that were loose).  I guess I was spoiled by the high quality of the Blindsgalore product.
