      Ideas for Window Treatments

      Thanks to their versatility, easy functionality, and affordable price, aluminum blinds offer a wide selection of opportunities for homeowners to create a window treatment that maintains your personal sense of home design. Horizontal aluminum blinds offer clean, simple lines in a variety of different colors to complement and accent your existing furniture and accessories. They create strips of sunlight that illuminate, warm, and add character to any room in your home and can be particularly helpful in your bathroom and kitchen.

      Bathroom Window Treatments - Modern aluminum blinds in your window frame require the careful balance of giving you the privacy you need without stifling essential sunlight. Good blinds also allow for plenty of unobstructed ventilation to keep the air fresh and reduce the chance of shower mold. For your bathroom window treatment, consider using aluminum blinds in the ½ inch micro size. The smaller slats allow you to easily control the amount of light that comes in while making it harder for others to see in, protecting your personal privacy. Aluminum blinds are naturally resistant to water and moisture. This ensures that you get plenty of clean ventilation while preventing the potential for fungus, mold, and rust. The dust-resistant finish also makes these blinds easy to clean.

      Kitchen Window Treatments - The kitchen is the heart of your home. Aluminum blinds can improve the form and function of your kitchen. They can give you complete control over the amount of light you need, whether you’re cooking and preparing meals or simply relaxing with a cup of coffee. Choose lighter aluminum blinds to make your kitchen look and feel brighter. Slat sizes depend on your personal preference and the size of your kitchen windows, though the micro slats may not be the best choice as they can feel too limiting in a kitchen. You may also consider installing motorized aluminum blinds to easily bring them up when you want full natural light.


      Vinyl Blinds vs. Aluminum Blinds



      • Strength and durability – While both aluminum and vinyl blinds can last the long haul given good care, aluminum blinds do not break as easily as vinyl, which is lighter and made of weaker material. At the same time, aluminum is more prone to dents, bends, and other malformations, while vinyl flexes much easier. However, even with a bent slat or another form of damage, aluminum blinds are easy to repair. Broken vinyl blinds generally have to be replaced entirely.
      • Design – Aluminum blinds can easily be customized for color and size, but they are harder to manufacture with special textures and designs, like wood grain. Vinyl may offer a wider array of design options for your home.
      • Energy efficiency – Vinyl blinds are not as energy efficient as aluminum blinds. That’s mainly because aluminum is a metal, so it can more effectively reflect the sun’s rays, keeping the temperature inside your home much cooler during sunny days. Vinyl blinds may actually absorb the sun’s rays, adding to the sweltering discomfort during hotter seasons.
      • Cost – Vinyl tends to cost less than aluminum blinds, but that price difference begins to level out and even reverse based on the size of the vinyl blinds and the inclusion of any textures. For example, you may find yourself paying more for vinyl blinds featuring wood texturing. Thankfully, Budget Blinds offers vinyl and aluminum blinds at a variety of prices designed to match your budget without sacrificing quality or your personal home design needs.
      • Style – When it comes to style, both vinyl and aluminum blinds offer a wide range of options in a variety of colors and slat sizes. Overall, aluminum blinds offer more versatility and durability over vinyl blinds, but Budget Blinds can help you make the best choice for you and your home. Our team can make sure you have a window blind solution that will help you save money and maintain good home design.

      Types of Window Treatments

      Large Window Blinds - You may be scratching your head, wondering how to best furnish the large windows in your home, but wonder no more. Aluminum blinds offer plenty of versatility to fit windows of all shapes and sizes for the perfect balance of style, light, and privacy. Larger windows generally require larger slats. Micro or even medium sized slats can make the window look too busy, chaotic and heavy. Larger slats, like our 2-inch premium slats, maintain a lighter feel while providing plenty of control over brightness and privacy.

      Modern Window Blinds - If you want modern, simple, and clean, then aluminum blinds are perfect for you. The aluminum construction offers a slick, modern look that can help you update the look of your home almost instantly. Easy to install and maintain, aluminum blinds are an affordable option for keeping your home looking and feeling contemporary for years to come. Choose from a variety of colors to match your blinds with the furniture. Easy customizability and repairs mean you can always switch your aluminum blinds depending on the season or your changing tastes while keeping that modern flair.

      Motorized Window Blinds - Motorized window blinds are the epitome of convenience and accessibility in window designs. At Budget Blinds, our motorized window blinds are powered by Somfy, a leader in cutting edge technology for smart homes and offices. The company has its roots dating all the way back to 1750 with a group of craftsmen who created parts for Swiss watches. It has since spread its focus to include home automation.Using Somfy’s motorization system, we can turn any set of aluminum blinds in your home into motorized blinds that you can easily raise or lower. Motorized blinds make a great solution for windows that are high and large, which may be harder to lower or raise on your own. Motorized blinds are also highly recommended for skylights and window in areas that are hard to reach. Motorized blinds come with a variety of control options, including wireless wall switches and remote controls. You can even control your blinds via your phone or tablet, all with the simple touch of a button. Motorized blinds can also be set on a timer, allowing you to open and close your aluminum blinds at the right time of day. You can also set motorized aluminum blinds using sensors. These sensors can control the blinds by automatically adjusting based on the temperature, sunlight, and other weather conditions. This can effectively keep your home cool and comfortable, saving your energy and air conditioning bills in the process.
