What to Look for When Choosing the Right Window Blinds

What to Look for When Choosing the Right Window Blinds

When it comes to how you treat your windows, having to choose the perfect Mesa blinds is confusing. There are many choices, making it a tricky conundrum. But we, at All About Blinds and Shutters, have sorted some of these many options to make it easy for you. But first, we’ll get down to the basics by looking at the different styles and features.

Blinds are basically slats or vanes, which can either be made of wood or hard plastic. Wood provides a more classic look while plastic offers a bit of a modern contemporary feel. Blinds can also be adjusted using a manual pull cord, or for your convenience, a remote control.

The width of each slat should be one of your first factors to decide on. There are 3 standards slat sizes to choose from: 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 inches. The most popular would be the 0.5 inch slat because it gives a modern contemporary feel. The 1.0 inch slat size is a halfway compromise between the 0.5 and 2.0 inch slat sizes. The 1.0 inch slats, however, are slightly more expensive than the 0.5 inch variety. The 2.0 inch is often preferred for those seeking for an old-fashioned, old-world feel because it is reminiscent of the older variety Venetian blinds.

Picking a Color for Your Mesa Blinds

Choosing what color for your window blinds is your preference. Our advice: if you want to retain the color scheme of the wall, by all means choose a color that would blend in. Or if you want the blinds to become more prominent, can pick a brighter, more noticeable hue.

Neutral colors, however, are the default setting. This is perfect if you want to settle on a long-term, classic look for the room.

Wood or Faux Wood

Faux wood window blinds are a popular option because they are substantially more affordable and less susceptible to wear and tear resulting from moisture issues. They are great for damp or wet areas like kitchens or bathrooms. Wood blinds, on the other hand, provide a softer, more organic, and more elegant feel. If you want to opt for the wooden look but are strapped for cash, you could go for faux. Nobody can tell the difference anyway.
