New woven wood shades in Fraser, Colorado
These customers wanted to replace heavy brown curtains that had been installed in front of this bedroom window by the previous owner. They also wanted to match the existing faux wood blinds throughout the rest of their home. After discussion and viewing of our hand samples and fabric swatches they decided to go with top down bottom up woven woods shades from our Signature Series collection. Style & color are Caprica Coffee Bean which nicely complement the bedroom decor and the existing faux wood blinds. We added Chocolate colored privacy liners for both the shade & valance so that light could filter through while significantly reducing the ability to see into the bedroom from outside.
Enlightened Style Faux Wood Blinds
When you want a wood-like look and feel but want to achieve this at a lower cost faux wood blinds are always an option vs. wood blinds or shutters. The composite materials for faux woods blinds can also be a better choice for areas of potential moisture such as bathrooms or above the kitchen sink. Faux wood blinds don't typically come with as many options or color choices as wood blinds but still offer numerous shades from which to choose.
At Budget Blinds child safety is always a key consideration when we show & recommend window treatment solutions. Unfortunately, cords pose a real danger to kids & pets so we try to eliminate or at least mitigate their potential threat.
At minimum we warn customers about the potential dangers of the cords, attempt to put them high enough so children can't reach them and install cord cleats/tensioners to keep them out of kids' way. Ideally though we recommend cordless & motorization solutions that make shades/blinds easy to operate, offer good value and eliminate cords altogether. Safety first!
This baby's room is outfitted with cordless cellular shades so that the parents need not worry.
Vertical Blinds & other options
While not as popular as they once were Budget Blinds does provide a wide variety of options & colors for vertical blinds. These blinds are mainly used to cover large wide windows - patio doors being the most common example - but not can also be used on small windows throughout a house.
Options to cover wide windows & patio doors have evolved a lot over the years. Vertical blinds are an option but so are vertical cellular shades, shear vertical blinds (blinds combined with fabric in between), woven woods and various panel track options. And we can often add a touch of style with drapery, side panels or decorative drapery rod and/or valence or cornice.
Enlightened Style TriLight Shade
The Trilight shade is an unique window covering that combines a pleated shade on top with a cellular shade on the bottom. Depending on how much privacy, UV protection, energy conservation, light filtering and view of the outside you want at any time you can adjust the shade to match your desire.
The pleated shad allows a little privacy, allows light in and you still have a view. The cellular shade provides more privacy, energy savings and blocks light & sun. So many options - shade all the way up, only pleated shade, only cellular shade or partly cellular & partly pleated - the choice is yours!
Aluminum blinds (commonly referred to as Venetian or mini-blinds) are one of the more common solutions where economical window covering solutions are desired. Budget Blinds offers & installs these blinds in numerous colors, sizes and slat widths. They are often a good choice for rental or affordable housing units. Tilt them closed to block light and maintain privacy. Tilt them open to allow in more light and to see the view.
Ask about our Enlightened Style window shading products to add an elegant touch to your home. These products which can be installed either horizontally (like on the window in this picture) or vertically (across patio door) and provide a compromise between blinds & shades. Made of soft fabric they can be raised or lowered like a shade but when lowered the 'slats' inside can be tilted opened or closed to control light & privacy.

Signature Series Wood Blinds
Wood blinds are a excellent option to control the amount of light entering a room by tilting them open or closed. As wood is a natural insulator they also help with energy conservation when closed.
