Affordable Venetian Blinds

By Elaine Henshaw

Venetian blinds look good and they don’t cost a lot. There are a wide variety of venetian blinds on the market made from a variety of materials such as aluminum, faux wood and wood. Venetian blinds work in any space and can be had for as little as $14.00 a blind, up to $30.00 or more a blind. If it sounds too good to be true, don’t worry. Because so many people buy these blinds, window treatment companies can buy them in bulk, which means they save money and the consumer also saves money.

When bought from a reliable source, venetian blinds will last for years. They are built with materials that are intended to remain for a long time. Venetian blinds come in aluminum, faux wood and wood. Aluminum blinds are the ones that you can find for the lowest cost. Faux wood binds costs a little bit more, but many people thinks it’s worth it to have a natural element in their homes. Wood blinds, because of the cost of processing, will be at the higher end of the price spectrum.

One brand of cost effective venetian blinds is the Embassy 2″ faux wood blinds with designer tapes. Tapes are a fabric strip that runs down either side of the blind to cover the lifting and tilting cords. They come in a variety of colors and patterns to tie in a room’s color schemes and patterns. These window treatments come with a few extras to make customer’s feel good about the purchase. One of those is the 2×2 metal headrail that covers the top section of the blind for a complete finished look. A 3-inch cornice valance is also included at no additional charge. Because they look like wood, many people choose this cost effective product over real wood blinds.

Faux wood is an excellent choice for high moisture areas, like kitchens where steam can be a factor and bathrooms. Faux wood is less likely to warp of bend with moisture. They are built to last and don’t chip or crack. These blinds pay off in the long run as they don’t have to be replaced for years to come.

Faux wood mimics wood and has a variety of stains to choose from including light and dark. The lighter woods work to keep smaller rooms feeling larger, while the darker stains suit offices and large rooms that have wood accents. The decorative tapes come in a wide array of colors and patters, so have fun with them. Pick something that will compliment or contrast the design of the room.

Faux wood and aluminum venetian blinds are lightweight so lifting them isn’t a problem. Wood blinds do have a little more weight to them, so can be a bit awkward for elderly people and children to operate. As always, if children are present in the house, be sure to buy a cordless version or ensure the windows are high enough that they are out of reach of children for safety reasons.

When opened, these window treatments take up very little space. In fact, they offer almost full room views. The durability of the wood and faux wood blinds will be sure to last for years, making them a worthy financial investment that won’t need replacing any time soon.

Cheap venetian blinds offer a warm, natural look with wood and faux wood or a splash of color with aluminum venetian blinds. Replacing old or worn blinds is easy and with these options and also affordable.
