Finding Cheap Window Blinds
Just because you are looking for cheap window blinds, it does not mean that they have to necessarily look like cheap blinds. There are many different ways you can cut costs with blinds without cutting back on the overall quality and look of the blind.
One of the best ways to find cheap window blinds is to look for sales. There is always a sale on blinds taking place somewhere, and even online you can often find sales. The great thing about sales is that you can often pick up very nice blinds at a tremendously marked down prices and they look fantastic too. Changes of season and after New Year are both great times to watch out for sales on blinds. Many retail outlet stores have sales to clear out old stock so that they can stock up with newer models, and they offer very good quality blinds at marked down prices.
There will be a big price difference between models made from different materials. You can often find, for example, very cheap vinyl window blinds that are a fraction of the cost of other similar models that are made from different material. Another great example, where choosing your material carefully can bring big savings, is when you buy faux wood blinds instead of real wooden blinds. Few people can tell the difference at a distance between faux wood and real wood blinds, especially these days, but the savings you will make from choosing faux wood over real wood will be considerable. Alternatively, check out the bamboo blinds, they are usually quite cheap, they look great and you are actually doing the environment a favor as bamboo is some of the fastest growing wood there is.
Another tip that can absolutely trim back your window blind costs is by mixing the types of cheap window blinds you hang. You can buy different styles of blinds, hang the cheapest window blinds in areas of the house that are less visited or less seen by others and choose your nicest blinds for the parts of your home that visitors see. This way you can actually afford to have some nice blinds in your living room, for example, but hang cheap vinyl window blinds in the bedrooms and spare rooms where people rarely go.
If you visit your local Home Depot type store you may find that they have returned blinds on sale for very cheap prices. Once the package is opened it cannot be sold at the top retail price, but instead it has to be sold very cheaply. Oftentimes people buy the wrong sized model and then return them for another size. You can often pick up these cheap window blinds as it is amazing how many people actually do come up with the wrong measurements for blinds.
