What are Custom Blinds?

Designed to fit your windows perfectly, custom blinds give your space a designer-friendly look without costing you an arm and a leg. They're also useful for unique or oversized windows where made-to-order blinds, shades and curtains are your only option. Here are a few things to think about when shopping for these blinds:

  • Window size. Before you can choose blinds for your home, you need to take the time to measure the windows you're working with. Always measure from the outside edge of the sill inward. Make sure you add an inch or two on both sides for proper light filtration.
  • Hard or soft? Custom blinds come in hard and soft varieties, and since they'll be a big part of your home design, choosing your style before you shop is a smart idea. Soft styles make your room look cozy, while harder styles provide a more architectural look. Which style fits your room best?
  • Is your home traditional, transitional or modern? Look for custom blinds and window treatments that match your vintage-inspired style, traditional decor or minimalist aesthetic.
