If you’re in the market for some new window treatments, you might be feeling overwhelmed by the options. From curtains to shades to shutters, there are so many options out there that it can be hard to decide which one is right for your home.
That’s why we’ve put together this quick guide to mini blinds—a simple but stylish option that’s ideal for any room in your home.
Mini blinds are sleek, modern window coverings that let light in without letting everyone see in—so they’re both aesthetically pleasing and practical.
They come in different colors, patterns, and materials so you can choose one that matches your decor style perfectly. They’re also super easy to put up; all you need is a screwdriver!
Mini blinds are also extremely versatile—they can be mounted inside or outside of the window frame depending on what look you’re trying to achieve.
If you have windows that are too high for curtains but don’t want anything blocking out all light from entering into your home, this is an ideal option for those situations.
They offer privacy without blocking out any natural light from entering into the room through them during those times when they aren’t being used as a shutter system (when closed).
Mini blinds come in all kinds of styles—including regular-sized blinds, roller shades, and Roman shades—so it’s easy to find the right look for your space. But no matter what style you choose, mini blinds are easy to install and operate.
How Mini Blinds Work
Mini blinds are a great option for all your window needs. They work by raising or lowering the slats, which can be done with a pull cord or a remote control that allows you to operate them from anywhere in the room.
They’re perfect for covering large windows with a single opening, and they come in many different styles and colors to suit any home decor.
Mini Blinds Upgrade
Upgrading your mini blinds is a great way to add personality and style to your home. Here are some of our favorite upgrades:
We love the look of a cordless lift because it’s so easy to operate. Simply pull up on the bottom of your blind, and it will open. To close, simply push down on the top of your blind, and it will close.
Valances and Cornices
Valances and cornices are great for adding style and elegance to your windows! They’re made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, vinyl, and fabric. They come in many different styles, including traditional and contemporary.
Hold Down Brackets:
These brackets help hold down your mini blinds, so they don’t move around when you open or close them. Motorization: Motorization allows you to operate everything from one remote control device instead of having multiple remotes for each individual window.
Motorization is the easiest and most affordable way to upgrade your mini blinds. Whether you want to save energy, open and close them with remote control, or just make them more convenient, motorization is the best option.
Mini Blinds FAQs
What is a mini blind?
Mini blinds are a type of window covering that is typically made out of cloth. They are usually attached to a track on the side of the window and have slats that can be adjusted up or down to adjust the amount of light that comes into the room.
How do mini blinds compare to other types of window treatments?
Mini blinds are very similar to vertical pleated shades, which also allow you to adjust how much light comes into a room by moving the slats up or down.
The big difference between mini blinds and vertical pleated shades is that vertical pleated shades are made out of fabric, while mini blinds use slats made out of plastic or wood (the latter option will obviously be more expensive).
Do mini blinds block light?
Yes! Mini blinds are known for their ability to block out light, which means they’re great for rooms that need a little extra darkness at night. They come in a variety of colors and styles, so you can find the perfect one for your space.
How do I measure for mini blinds?
Measure the width of your window and the height of your window. Then subtract 1/2″ from each measurement (for a 1/2″ reveal). Round up to the nearest quarter-inch and select that size from our size chart.
What will I need to install my mini blinds?
You’ll need a level, tape measure, pencil, drill (optional), and a screwdriver or drill bit set. If you’re installing on an existing window frame, you’ll also need screws or hooks (depending on your hardware).
How do I clean my mini blinds?
Wipe them down with a damp cloth and mild soap if needed. You can also get them professionally cleaned at most dry cleaners!
