Cost Effective Blinds That Won’t Break the Bank

Shopping for affordable window blinds in Michigan? Today, there are so many options, it can get confusing, so I’ve compiled this list  for our Michigan customers to help narrow down the choices.

In a climate like Michigan, there are temperature extremes, from below zero to the 90s. Those big swings in temperature make an insulating shade like a cellular shade a very good choice. The honeycomb cells provide a layer of air that helps keep exterior temperatures from creeping inside through your windows. Cellular shades are available in single, double and triple cell styles and are available in variety of fabrics and colors. While the up-front cost may be higher than a roller shade, the energy savings you realize will be well worth it.

Love the look of wood? Faux wood blinds are a value-priced way to get the look of a real wood blind without the cost. Plus, faux woods can be used in areas with humidity like bathrooms, laundry rooms and kitchens without any fear. Faux wood blinds are available in painted or stained finishes to match your décor and with all the convenient options like routeless (no holes) and upgrades cornices.

Pleated shades are another great choice for keeping your costs down. In the past, pleated shades had holes for the cord that many people didn’t like. Today, pleated shades can be ordered without holes so you don’t see the operating cord running through the fabric. It’s a great seamless look. You can also get cordless operation for added safety around children and pets. And, they are available in the latest fabrics and color palettes to keep your house looking stylish.

Roller shades have come a long way, too with great new fabrics, textures, colors and hardware options. Some popular styles in Michigan include light filtering styles and patterns to help dress up a tired space affordably. Customize your look easily with different valance styles, roll direction, and decorative hem options.
