Summary: A blind can do more than you can do with a curtain. It has more functions than you can find in a curtain.

If you are looking for a more cost-effective option to regular curtains that cost from $50 to $250 per window then consider buying blinds that can save you lots of money. Also, you can buy bespoke printed blinds to match your home interior.

Since you are looking for cost-effective drapes, our discussion will be limited to the cost involved and cost saved on blinds.

The first thing you need to understand about blinds is their construction. A blind can be divided into different slats with each slat having its movement. For example, when you lift a blind, you actually lift all the slats in the blind.

What are the types of blinds?

Picture window blinds come in vertical and horizontal types. Vertical slats move sideways and horizontal slats move up and down. Vertical type is good for windows that remain closed most of the time. Horizontal type, on the other hand, is more popular for homes as it can be folded up to access a window.

Blinds are more cost-effective than curtains for the following reasons

1. Durable

A curtain can’t last longer than a couple of months or a maximum of a year because a fabric can’t withstand wear and tear for a long time. But window blinds can keep working for years. If you invest $100 on curtains, you will have to change the curtains within a year but your investment in blinds will give a huge return.

2. Cleaning and Maintenance

Bespoke printed blinds require little maintenance and whatever maintenance they need, you can do it in a hassle-free manner. A blind can be wiped with a mop in the closed position. But a curtain will require complete dry-cleaning at least once in two months. Also, you need washing powder suitable for the type of fabric of your curtains to clean the drapes.

3. Light Control

With blinds, you have better light control options that will allow you to light your home with sunlight. You won’t need to turn your electric lights on in the day when you can fill your home with sunlight. Simply turning the slats up will make way for sunlight to enter your home. It will indirectly reduce your energy bill in the long run.

4. Interior Décor

Picture window blinds will improve your home décor. You can easily find the blinds that blend well with the interior features of your home. Or you can get perfect blind covers made for your windows. In this way, you can fulfill the dual purposes of covering your windows and improving your home décor with blinds.

Check the range of blinds available in the market before making any opinion on the blinds. Also, keep in mind that you can get bespoke products to suit your needs.
