Quick Guide to Custom Blinds

The window treatments in your home make a larger impact than you may realize. It’s a design piece that you might not notice when it’s done well, but you definitely notice when it’s done poorly or not at all. When shopping for custom window blinds, consider function, lighting control, insulation, and style. You also need to consider the design of the windows themselves.

Budget Blinds offers a wide range of custom window blinds, all of which fit to each individual window. Not to worry, we do the work for you.


Let’s break down five different custom blind styles.

Wood and Bamboo Blinds - Natural Beauty for All Window Types

Wood and bamboo blinds create a beautiful natural look. It’s hard to go wrong with either of these choices. Looking for naturally beautiful custom window blinds? You can't go wrong with wood and bamboo blinds. They look great on all types of windows, French doors, sliding glass doors, and others. There are solutions for odd-shaped windows too.

  • Wood Blinds - Wood blinds can add natural texture and depth to a room. They are easier to keep clean and are more durable than fabric blinds. Budget Blinds offers both painted and stained wood blinds.

  • Woven Wood Shades - Woven wood shades are made of eco-friendly materials. These materials are woven together to create panel track blinds or woven wood blinds.

  • Bamboo Shades - Bamboo shades are another eco-friendly option and are organically-sourced. Bamboo shades soften the look of the room by diffusing the sunlight coming in from the windows. Budget Blinds offers a blackout liner if you want full opacity with the bamboo shade. Bamboo shades customize to all window shapes.

Motorized Blinds - Perfect for Hard-to-Reach Windows and Convenience

Motorized window blinds are popular for homeowners looking for no-cords and convenience. They are perfect for elevated windows, skylights, and windows behind furniture.

Motorized blinds are a safe option for families with children and pets because they are cordless. Budget Blinds’ technology allows for motorization in many of their custom window blinds. If you have a specific window treatment you want, call and see if motorization is an option.

Fabric Blinds - A Solution for South-Facing Windows

Fabric blinds are very common due to their versatility and broad range of styles. Fabric blinds are a perfect solution for living room, bedroom, and dining room windows. They maintain privacy, control ambient lighting, and soften sunlight.

All fabric custom window blinds offered by Budget Blinds come in a range of different materials, colors, patterns, and weaves. You have options for fabric thickness, from sheer to blackout. The selection of fabric window treatments includes: Standard Fabric Blinds, Roller shades, Pleated shades, Roman shades, Sheer shades, and Cellular shades.

Vertical Blinds - Ideal for Wide Windows and Sliding Glass Doors

Wide windows and sliding glass doors look nice with vertical blinds. Budget Blinds offers vertical blinds in a couple of different styles, including:

  • Vinyl Blinds - Vinyl blinds are a low-maintenance alternative to vertical fabric blinds. Vertical vinyl blinds come in different colors, patterns, and vane shapes.

  • Vertical Blind Alternatives - Vertical blind alternatives include vertical cellular shades, vertical sheer blinds, vertical woven wood blinds, and sliding panel tracks. If there's a particular material you want, call to see if it's possible to get it as a vertical blind/shade.

Moisture Resistant Blinds for Bathroom and Kitchen Windows

The bathroom and kitchen tend to have high humidity. It's best to choose moisture-resistant window treatments. Faux wood blinds, Composite blinds, and Aluminum blinds are all great options.
