If you’re looking for energy efficiency coupled with style, you’re on the right page.  Budget Blinds offers a wide range of energy efficient window coverings for your home.

Moreover, while energy conservation is no doubt a must, why should style take a backseat to practicality? It doesn’t have to with Budget Blinds. Our eye-catching window treatments enhance your space, allow in natural light while protecting you from unwanted peek-ins, and provide insulation from external temperatures. Our energy efficient window coverings can reduce your energy costs up to 30%. After all, it’s the little things like window coverings that can make a huge difference in energy savings!

Energy Efficient Window Coverings from Budget Blinds

According to the U. S. Department of Energy, as much as 30% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. To tackle this, Budget Blinds takes an innovative approach in designing energy efficient window coverings. We offer window treatments that provide effective insulation: increased protection against heat loss during winter and heat gain during summer. It’s a smart way to save rather than cranking up heat or air conditioning to reach the desired temperature inside your home. 

Allow Budget Blinds’ shades, blinds, shutters, and window film to do the trick instead of trying to keep up with rising energy costs! Our energy efficient window coverings range from blackout window shades and hardwood shutters to decorative window films and motorized window treatments. Blackout window shades provide both insulation and the ideal sleep-enhancing environment with light-blocking and enhanced room darkening.

On the other hand, our hardwood shutters rely on an insulating design to achieve a comfortable temperature. Still another innovative alternative is Budget Blinds’ window film that rejects up to 40% of the sun’s heat for a lower temperature during hotter months, saving you money.

Solar Shades

Solar Shades on Patio

By design, solar shades are extremely energy efficient. They effectively shield your home from solar heat gain to keep it cooler, substantially cutting down energy consumption and costs. What’s more, they successfully reduce glare and block out harmful UV rays, providing much-needed protection from the sun, especially during summer.

The best part is these energy-efficient window shades block the sun while filtering and diffusing natural sunlight, so you can enjoy bright, natural, scattered sunlight minus the uncomfortable glare and harmful UV rays. Available in various opacity levels, you can take your pick based on the degree of clarity you desire.

However, you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics while keeping energy costs down. Budget Blinds’ solar shades offer both: practicality and a generous dose of style! These energy efficient window coverings are sleek and modern in appearance and come in an impressive collection of designer-fabrics and colors. In addition, consider pairing them with draperies for a designer effect and enhanced insulation during the winter and summer seasons! If you’re looking for a reliable and aesthetically appealing energy efficient option, solar shades are truly an excellent choice.

Motorized Window Treatments

For energy efficiency, convenience, privacy and automation – all at the touch of a button – opt for our motorized window treatments. You can program and automate the opening and closing of these window coverings at specific times during the day to help save on energy costs. For enhanced energy efficiencies, their unique sensors automatically adjust blinds and shades with rising temperatures.

 Budget Blinds presents cutting-edge motorized window treatments that combine hi-tech designs with style, so you don’t have to compromise on beauty for improved energy efficiencies.

Cellular Window Shades

Cellular window shades are constructed of innovative honeycomb-shaped cells for excellent insulation and improved energy efficiencies. In addition, you have the option to choose from three cell sizes and a range of opacity levels to allow you to control how much light enters your home. For added light control, consider our top-down cellular shades that allow you to let in plenty of light without sacrificing privacy.

Again, Budget Blinds doesn’t compromise on style for practicality! Our insulated cellular shades come in a range of trendy fabrics and colors, so you can find the style that matches your existing home décor. Furthermore, for a finished appearance, pair energy efficient window coverings like cellular shades with other draperies or with pleated fabric on the top for increased ambient lighting.

Roman Shades

Imagine soft folds of premium, designer-inspired fabrics cascading beautifully with diffused light! This is just the kind of ambience that Budget Blinds’ Roman shades provide along with practicality. Besides, you get to choose from an inspiring selection of beautiful fabrics, ranging from chic sheer to opaque, and in a wide variety of stripes, silks, patterns, and jacquards. These energy efficient window coverings come in a variety of styles, including balloon shades, tear drop shades, cascading folds, and relaxed folds.

Another plus is that several of these fabrics offer enhanced light filtering and room darkening so you can control the amount of light and privacy. Roman shades offer an optimal mix of beauty and practicality as they lock in warm air during winter and cooler air during summer.


Have you ever considered floor-to-ceiling drapes for energy-saving insulation? Most of us haven’t. Floor-to-ceiling drapes are an effective but surprisingly unknown energy saving alternative. The drapes fold back against the wall to seal off the window, preventing loss of heat. Another energy saving solution is layering curtains or drapes over other window treatments such as blinds, shades, or shutters.

Draping energy efficient window coverings with curtains enhances a room’s insulation, which leads to tremendous energy efficiencies. In addition, Budget Blinds’ light filtering and room darkening liners provide added light control, which is perfect for bedrooms, kids’ rooms, and home theater rooms.

Budget Blinds offers the widest collection in drapes, with never-ending choices in a wide variety of fabrics, textures, and styles. From subtle to dramatic, we have a stunning array of styles that meets your unique needs.

For further customization, consider our designer collection of Inspired Drapes®, including exclusive designer fabrics imported from Italy that create an especially elegant ambience. Pair these with other Budget Blinds products like ready-made drapery panels and other decorative accessories like drapery hardware, curtain rods, and silk and linen curtain panels for a truly customized look.

Mix and match draperies from an array of captivating colors, fabrics, and textures with existing window treatments to evoke the right effect, depending on your mood, whether it is light and flirtatious or relaxed and laidback. Regardless of the mood, what remains constant is your energy efficiency with Budget Blinds’ draperies!
