Decorating on a BudgetThe Best of the Best in Window Treatments
When it comes to interior decorating on a budget, few other window treatments are as cost effective as horizontal or vertical window blinds, or window shades. Not only can these window treatments be found at competitive prices without compromising on overall quality, but their benefits are more than cosmetic.
Window blinds and shades are wise investments because they are multi-purpose: they reduce sun glare and heat, help to insulate the window area from cold drafts, provide privacy, allow sunlight coming into the room to be regulated, and protect draperies, curtains, carpet, and room furnishings from damaging UV rays. This is not only true in regards to fabric furnishings, but wood furniture as well.
Best Buy for the Money Aluminum Mini Blinds
Budget priced, quality aluminum 1" mini blinds by Prestige can't be beat. Durable, long-wearing, and in the same price range as quality vinyl blinds; add to that Prestige's impressive selection of colors from which to choose. 36 designer colors in all, one sure to fit your decor nicely.
These horizontal blinds are made from 6 mil aluminum slates with a 1x1-inch durable steel head rail, and a 3/4-inch bottom rail. Blinds less than 12-inches wide are available with either standard or reverse controls; wider blinds also available with same-side controls.
Slightly higher in cost but still competitively priced are Prestige's aluminum 1" mini blinds in specialy colors. Trendy metallic colors such as brushed gold, bronze, and brass; or pearlized alabaster or charcoal for an air of understated sophistication.
Super Buy for the Money Fabric Vertical Blinds
Priced much lower than what one might expect, these vertical blinds with Sussex fabric vanes come in 10 appealing designer colors and are weighted at the bottom for straight, uniform appearance. Available with standard attractive valance included at no additional charge, or a choice of two designer valances for sophistication and extra decor appeal.
Sussex fabric vanes are 3 1/2-inches wide, translucent and light filtering. Built in feature insures that vanes are always evenly spaced regardless of blind positioning. Reversible track allows for right or left draw; also available in split draw.
Great Buy for the Money Fabric Window Shades
Despite the low price, these 100% polyester roller shades have the look and feel of real linen, and are pure quality! Available in 9 designer colors, shades have a color coordinated continuous nylon loop chain and clutch-action roller for smooth operation.
One nifty feature is that the loop chain on these roller shades remains in the same position regardless whether the shade is open, closed, or midway. This makes them a particularly great choice for households with small children or pets; available with a decorator hem, and two styles of valances.
Of course, our competitively priced light-diffusing pleated shades are another option when decorating on a budget, and a super value when considering quality. Available in shantung or pristine fabric, these window blinds provide a stylish look for any room in the house where full privacy is not required.
