How To Choose Custom Blinds For Your Window

Custom blinds in Colorado Springs offer the best options for personal choice and variety. Blinds don’t need to be one size fits all for everybody. Whether you have unique-sized windows or you’d simply prefer designing your own window treatments, custom blinds offer you the freedom to choose the perfect solution for your home and windows.

When choosing custom blinds, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Use these tips when selecting new custom blinds for your home.

Measure Your Windows

Custom blinds are cut to match your specific window measurements. It’s important to record these numbers accurately so you don’t order blinds too big or too small for the window.

Measure your windows by measuring the width at the top and bottom with and without the window frame included. Record each measurement. Measure the length from the top of the frame to the windowsill (if applicable) or bottom frame including the length inside the window frame. Record these measurements.  Next, measure the width of the frame and distance from the frame to the ceiling, floor, and side walls.

Choose Your Blinds Style

Custom blinds allow for a variety of styles when choosing the perfect solution for your windows. You can select from roller shades, roman shades, solar shades, cellular shades, wood or faux wood blinds, and more! View photo galleries and visit a local blinds showroom to choose firsthand the style and design you love. Browse your options until your heart is content!

Decide On Additional Features

The best part about customizing your blinds is the added features you can include for convenience and comfort. Choose between mounting your blinds inside or outside the window frame and choose from a variety of hardware options.

Do you have large or hard to reach windows? Add a motorized option to control your blinds from the click of a button. Cordless blinds are also an important safety feature for homes with small children. Custom blinds allow you to pick your favorite amenities to suit your individual needs.
