Type of Window
Mini blinds, also called venetian blinds, are a classic choice with great durability. Custom mini blinds offer clean-lined design that works with virtually any room style. These blinds are easy to clean, long lasting, and most importantly, inexpensive. For those who need practical window treatments at affordable prices, mini blinds are a perfect solution. Blindsgalore offers a great selection of popular mini blinds from Bali and Levolor as well as our own signature line.
How They Work
All blinds are most commonly operated through the use of a wand, cords, or continuous corded loop. The cord or wand are used to tilt the slats all the way open, closed or anywhere in between. Another cord is designated for raising and lowering the entire stack of slats. It is important to check if all the slats are properly aligned before adjusting them to avoid possible damage. We also offer a large selection of cordless and motorized products, which are recommended for safety in homes with small children or pets.
Light Control And Privacy
Aluminum mini blinds provide excellent privacy. You can lower the entire stack of slats to cover the entire window and adjust the slats so they are titled shut. Mini blinds offer medium room darkening with the slats fully closed. For bedrooms where you may want even more light control, consider routeless slats. Routeless slats do not have visible openings where the string goes through each slat.
There are several options for upgrades including cloth tapes, routeless slats, cordless operation and motorization. Cloth tapes are meant to enhance the style and soften the look of the blind. Routeless slats, as mentioned above, take light control and privacy to the next level, providing better room darkening. Cordless offers easy operation and is an important safety consideration for homes with small children, as loose cords can be dangerous.
Designated sizes for mini blind slats are most often 1/2", 1", 1 3/8", 2", and 2 1/2". Blinds with 1/2" slats are referred to as micro mini blinds and are well suited for smaller windows. One inch is the most common size, and also the most versatile. Two-inch slats and above are best suited for very large windows. The purpose of different sizes is to maintain clean style and proper function. Too many horizontal lines on a large window may be dizzying, while not enough lines on a small window is not visually appealing. It is also much easier to operate the blinds when they are appropriately sized.
Gauge of aluminum blinds refers to the thickness of the metal slats. There are three levels of gauges including 6, 8, and 9, all of which are intended for particular styles of windows. Install 8 and 9 gauge aluminum blinds in rooms that get the most wear and tear. Six gauge slats are the thinnest, and can be used in any room, but are best suited for rooms with less traffic.
Mini blinds are available in a few different materials: aluminum mini blinds and vinyl mini blinds. These materials are durable and able to stand up to the strains and pressures of a busy, fully-occupied household. These materials are definitely purposed for more functionality than style, however, they still have a clean appearance with the option of a few softening accents.

customer reviews for mini blinds
By hd883mah from Tulsa, OK
I was a little worried about purchasing my mini blinds online with not knowing anything about this company but the reviews put me at ease and I felt comfortable in pursuing my purchase. I was also worried whether I would measure the windows correctly but their instructions were very helpful, although I wanted to make sure I understood the instructions so I contacted my representative and she reassured me that I understood the instructions correctly. I was so excited when all the blinds fit perfectly, for this amateur window measurer. My representative was very helpful when I had to contact her to change the measurements on some of the blinds because I had measured them wrong. She even had to track the order down and get it corrected before they were made. My representative was very helpful with all aspects of my order and providing me additional information I had requested. She was awesome and very personable. They were as described and arrived as promised. I would purchase from them again. I can't say enough about this company and how pleased i was with all communications AND my mini blinds.View this product
