If you are considering an update for any room or rooms in your home then you could do no better than starting with your windows. Windows are always the focal point of any room and today there is such an abundance of styles from which to choose. Today many people prefer to use window blinds either on their own or as a starting point for a grandly appointed window. No matter what your budget might be it is easy to find either shades, blinds or shutters that will suit your taste.
There are many online sites such as Select Blinds and Budget Blinds that offer a full range of discount prices and many also offer in-home risk free trials as well as free shipping. Linden Street offers an excellent selection of thermal roman shades that add a soft beauty to any room as well as insulating the room from both heat and cold. These, as do almost all window blinds, come custom and can be made to accommodate almost any size window. Aluminum blinds are a very practical as well as cheap option for windows; these are an especially good choice for spare rooms or home office. They are very durable and come in a wide range of colors.
Perhaps nothing softens up a room so well as wooden blinds or shutters. These can be faux-wood, composite or a real wood product. Designer Basswood and American Hardwood offer beautiful styles and widths, with 1" and 2" being the most popular. Another real wood that is a very popular choice these days is bamboo. This versatile fast-growing wood can add a real natural beauty to any home and come with optional edge binding for a more finished look. Blackout liners are available in sizes to fit any particular window blinds to help cut back on too much sun filtering in and do well to trap in heat in the winter.
A top line choice to consider is cellular shades. Hunter-Douglas and Lillyette are two such options. These add a truly beautiful feeling to any room. One of their best features is the cordless option and also the ability to open from the top down or the bottom up. This is an excellent choice if you wish to let light in but still allows you to keep your privacy. These also come in a blackout version that really blocks out light almost completely. No matter which type you choose or what end of the budget-scale you work from there will be window blinds that can be made to fit any room you desire.
