One of the most diverse products for the window, blinds are available in different materials, paint colors, stain finishes, and slat sizes with the most popular being two inch. Blinds are a terrific value offering decent light control, privacy options, and can help to “edit” a view. Their timeless style looks great as a stand-alone treatment or layered under draperies.
Blinds are anything but basic at Linda’s Décors. While window coverings all have unique features and benefits, custom blinds, window shades and interior shutters are stylish and functional. Blinds, whether, real wood, faux or aluminum, painted, stained, or distressed, can be a one and done solution or a building block to a more layered look. Often with a value price point than other window treatments, blinds are a simplified solution that offer a lasting appeal!
Today’s wood blinds are available in a host of painted colors, unique stains, and even more unique distressed finishes. They can also feature fabric tapes instead of traditional ladders or strings. Blind slats are also available in various sizes, ranging from one-inch (mini) blinds, two inch and two and a half inch. When it comes to safety, custom blinds even comply with today’s safety standards featuring cordless and cord-free options that make them great for any room in the home.
Blinds work in decors from coastal to traditional, rustic to modern, and everything in between!
Window blinds are versatile for any room. In bedrooms, they can help dim the morning or afternoon sun. For common areas like living or family rooms, they offer varying levels of privacy. And, in spaces without optimal views, blinds and shades can help “edit” the view without losing the light.
Custom blinds and shade fabrics help you design a unique window covering specific to your decorating project. Like blinds, other horizontal slat type products like plantation shutters, café style shutters, and hardwood shutters offer another streamlined look at the window. All window treatments from Linda’s Decors are made with exceptional quality and workmanship. Whether it’s light filtering, room darkening or total blackout blinds, Linda’s Decors will help you select the best blinds and shading solutions for your space.
