Purchasing blinds at a store is fine for some individuals, but many people prefer custom blinds. Of course, the primary purpose for buying custom blinds is because they look better, and accent a room beautifully, but custom blinds offer home and business owners a number of advantages in addition to accenting a room. Custom blinds, just like blinds purchased in your average store, block out unwanted light; allow more light in and give home and office owners a sense of needed privacy.
Average blinds are made to fit certain measurements, whereas custom blinds are ordered per the customer’s exact measurements. When a homeowner purchases blinds from the store, most times, such blinds are either a bit too big, or a bit too small, making the window treatment appear haphazardly applied. In contrast, custom blinds fit perfectly and when the custom blinds are installed, they will not look like a blind that has been “forced to fit.” Custom blinds are created to fit a buyer’s window precisely, thereby offering the buyer the perfect window treatment.
Similarly, if a buyer purchases blinds in the store that are ready made, often times they are limited in terms of style. Stores usually offer the most common colors and styles and typically, blinds sold in stores are only the blinds that sell the best. This means that the buyer is limited in selection, whereas in purchasing custom blinds there is far more diversity in terms of selection. Custom blinds can be ordered in a variety of styles and colors: styles include real or faux wood, aluminum and bamboo and the colors offered easily match the décor in any room.
