Another way we can support our veterans is by wearing a poppy! Many individuals can be found at malls, grocery stores and schools offering the pin-on poppies and accept cash donations that benefit our veterans. For more information about this please visit  http://www.legion.ca/remembrance/the-poppy

Get the kids involved! A letter or postcard with a few kind words and thanks from our young canadians would mean so much to our Armed Forces. Visit the Postcards for Peace with the Government of Canada at: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/get-involved/postcard-for-peace

From our team at Budget Blinds Serving South East Saskatchewan we hope you have a wonderful weekend and enjoy your Remembrance Day activities. Thank you to our Armed Forces for their service.

Woven Woods In Living Room with Drapery

    This photo features beautiful deep blue drapery with woven wood shades. Woven woods are a beautiful handmade window covering that use natural fibres like hemp, jute, kenaf, and flax to offer a soft and elegant look. Our line of eco-friendly woven woods are created with high quality organic materials to bring a gorgeous and natural look. 

Woven Woods in Dining Room

    Woven wood shades have many feature options such as cordless, top down, and automation. These shades can also be fabric lined in light filtering fabrics to add more privacy or room darkening fabrics that offer room darkening. Woven woods have started to pop up in show homes around Canada. We recently had a home builder select a beaufitul chocolate brown woven wood for their show home in Regina, Saskatchewan. The photos of this space (below) show how the  rich texture in the window coverings really help bring the space together and give a modern meets boho-chic style.

Fall In Love with Sheer Drapery

Sheer Curtains & Why We Love Them

      Sheer curtains may not be your first choice when updating your window coverings but perhaps they should be! For a timeless window treatment that can work with any style décor from traditional to modern sheer curtains are a perfect fit. There are plenty of fabric and trend choices which can make any room have major visual allure. Sheers can be a stand-alone treatment or go for a layered look with another window treatment like blinds or shutters for more coverage, depending on the look you are trying to achieve. Like heavier drapery, sheer curtains offer an abundance of benefits including light control, privacy and security. Sheers are so beautiful and Budget Blinds® wants you to fall in love with them again. Here are some sheer curtain options that will captivate you:

 

 Sheer Drapery in White

 Sheer White Drapery in Modern Rustic Dining Room

 

         Sheer white curtains are a beautiful, yet uncomplicated, design option for your window covering needs. White sheers create an airy and bright feeling for your windows and make the room seem more relaxing. They offer softer natural lighting while providing some privacy. White sheers are a great option if you have a room with a lot of windows or very expansive window. They will offer you the option to cover up without having your windows look so heavy and full of window treatments.  Lastly, white sheers are ideal for outdoor living spaces because they allow the indoors to continue outdoors.      

 

 Colored Sheer Drapery

  Coloured Sheer Drapery 

 Most people think that sheers need to be crisp white, but that is not so! Colored sheer fabric allows you to make a fashion statement with your curtains. Depending on the design scheme you are looking to achieve, colored curtains can range from very subtle neutral colors to extremely colorful. Consider bright pink sheers which will to add a pop of color in a little girl’s room or a powder room! Sheer fabrics also come in the ever-so-popular color-blocking. Color-blocking drapery allows you to combine two colors that are either complementary or contrasting into one window treatment. 

Your curtains can become the main décor spotlight in the space. There are so many possibilities when it comes to colorful sheers. Bring on the neighbourhood envy! 

 

 Patterned Sheers

 Patterned Fabric - Sheer Curtains in Dining Room with Whites and Country Chic Style


      Patterned sheers are an easy and creative way to bring personality into your home or favourite space. Although it may seem trendy, patterned fabric drapery will never go out of style. Depending on your personal style you can have a simple patterned sheer or if you can go for it with a fully patterned design. Both are fun to explore and will work great in a contemporary home. Having a subtle pattern can allow you to express yourself without going overboard but, if you love patterns, you can really show it off when it comes to your curtains. A fun and popular patterned print for drapery is geometric shapes which look fantastic on every window.

Six Selections to Make before Ordering Shutters

Six Selections to Make before Ordering Shutters

Custom shutters are a stunning and classic window treatment that is exquisitely crafted and made to last. Shutters not only look beautiful, they offer you a vast array of benefits. Shutters provide excellent privacy and ventilation. This feature is mandatory when it comes to a good window treatment. But that’s not all they offer, they are energy-efficient due to their insulating design which will help you save on your energy bills, are extremely durable and become an investment to your home because they will last for years and improve your home’s curb appeal. Shutters are also very low maintenance and offer an extreme ease of cleaning.

 Cream/Taupe Shutters from Budget Blinds


If you have already made your mind up that your home’s coverings will be custom shutters, there are six choices to consider before you order. With plenty of decisions to make before your important purchase, it is crucial for an expert Style Consultant from Budget Blinds® to serve you through the process. Your Style Consultant can help you from the start to the finish of your order. They will assist you to consider every option so that by installation time you have exactly what you want. Here are some of the options you will have to discuss with your Style Consultant before making your purchase.

1. Shutter Style

Red Shutters in Dining Room

There are countless style options to select from when you decide to purchase shutters. First, shutters come in a variety of materials such as hardwood, faux wood, composite and aluminum. You will want to determine the type of material that will fit best in each room. For instance, if you are buying shutters for a bathroom, the material that would function best is composite because they can stand up to moisture. After you select the material, consider picking a style: Plantation, café or indoor/outdoor shutters. Lastly you will have to decide on color and texture. There is a limitless range of colors and finishes to match your distinct style preferences. This may seem overwhelming but your Budget Blinds Style Consultant will be there with you every step of the way to help you achieve your desired look while staying within your budget!  

 

2. Framing/Divider Rails

There are four beautiful shutter frame styles to choose from. The frame you choose has a lot to do with the window and how you want the shutter to hang. At Budget Blinds, we offer a selection of decorative frames for inside or outside mounting. Here are our four basic types of frames:

  • L-Frame
  • Z-Frame
  • Deco Frame
  • Direct Mount

Your Budget Blinds Style Consultant will recommend the best frame to complement your shutters for a polished and stylish look.

 

Frame Styles for Shutters from Budget Blinds

Divider rails

The divider rail is the horizontal bar on the shutter panel that separates the top and bottom louvers. It is used so you can control different parts of the shutter separately. Depending on your style choices, you can determine how many divider rails will appear on your shutters. There is no limit on the amount of divider rails; it is all about the look and function you are trying to achieve.

3. Mounting Options

Figuring out how your shutters should be mounted can be difficult to decide on your own, and that is where an expert Style Consultant can help. They will show you both options of mounting which include inside and outside and will inform you of the best option that will work with the window that you are trying to cover.

4. Louver Size

Louvers are designed to give you the ability to control the light and view. Budget Blinds offers three popular louver sizes, 2 ½”, 3 ½” and 4 ½.” Depending on what size louver you choose for your shutters will determine how many louvers are on a shutter panel. The smaller the louver size, the more you will have, giving more privacy. The larger louver size will give you a clearer view to the outdoors.

5. Tilt Options

The main purpose of the tilt rod is to allow you to control the louvers in unison. There are three options when it comes to the tilt including:

  • Tilt Rod (located in the center of the louvers)
  • Off Set Tilt Rod (located on the left or right side of the louvers)
  • Invisible Tilt (located on the backside of the louvers)

All the of options function the same, it all just depends on what look you want to achieve!

6. Automation

The last decision to make for your custom shutters is whether you would like to manually operate your shutters or add automation. Budget Blinds wants to provide you ultimate convenience with automated window coverings to make your everyday life easier. With automation, you can program timers to allow for automatic opening and closing, even when you are not home. They can be managed by wireless wall switches, hand-held remotes, and the option for a tablet or smartphone app. An important benefit of automated shutters is that they are child and pet-safe since they are cordless.
