Mini Blinds: Vinyl or Wood?
Window blinds have come a long way from those inexpensive aluminum blinds that warped, broke, and bent with very little use. You can now find window blinds that are great in function and look great in your room in all different price ranges.
Vinyl mini blinds and wood mini blinds are two of the most common kinds of window blinds available. They are available to fit in almost anyone's budget in all different sizes, including 2-inch slat mini blinds.
The differences between wood and vinyl mini blinds are numerous, but of course the most obvious difference is that they are made from different materials. There is a price difference, too, however. Vinyl mini blinds are less expensive than the wood mini blinds, but if you are looking for a colored blind then you will want to go with vinyl blinds because there is quite a number of color choices.
Wood blinds are the best choice if you have double and triple sized windows, because they are lighter. If you want to prevent that bowing that occurs in the blinds on larger windows then this is the best choice for you. You can also have your blinds custom-made if you have an unusually sized window to have that "just right" fit.
You should take the molding and trim around your window into consideration when choosing your window blinds. You can even match your wooden blinds to existing stained trim or molding. This will help to give your room more of a cohesive look and can make or break the style and decor of your room.
If budget is a huge consideration, but you want the look of wood blinds, then you will want to look at the faux wood vinyl blinds. They are great because they look like wood, but are easier to clean. If you want a colored blind, then vinyl blinds are the ones for you. They come in every color in the rainbow from bright white to black so you will be sure to find the exact look that you want.
Research is essential when choosing blinds. The choices between the different kinds, sizes, and colors that are available are numerous and researching beforehand can help prevent being overwhelmed when you visit the store.
If budgeting is not a concern then call a professional window treatment store. They will send a person out who will measure your windows, help you choose window treatments, and then install them. Learn about all your options and you are sure to find the right window blind choice for you.
