If you’re looking for an inexpensive, yet fashionable way to cover your windows while lowering heating and cooling bills, vinyl mini blinds may be for you!
Easy for Do-It-Yourselfers
Installation of vinyl mini blinds is easy. Usually, the package comes with all the hardware you’ll need, along with instructions. Just make sure you’ve got the basic tools: standard and Phillips screwdrivers, tape measure or yardstick, pencil, and possibly a small electric drill.
From there, it’s pretty simple to measure the width of your opening and buy the corresponding mini blind. Length is easily adjustable, even for the most inexpensive vinyl mini blinds. The main trick to installation is getting the brackets at the top of your opening the right distance from the top and level with each other. Once that’s done, installation is usually just a matter of popping the blinds into place and adjusting the length as necessary.
Save on Heating and Cooling
Properly installed vinyl mini blinds of the correct width can give you many years of enjoyment and dependable service. Not only that, but they give your windows a neat, consistent appearance. They can also eliminate significant amounts of radiant heat during the summer months, and reduce cool drafts during the winter. And, with the turn of a control rod, you can flood your room with free, natural light, any time you want to.
Bold or Conservative—Your Call!
With the wide choice of colors they offer, vinyl mini blinds can complement almost any décor, whether starkly modern or more traditional. Vinyl mini blinds in bold, primary colors can become the focal point of your decorating, while neutral-toned blinds can blend smoothly with walls and other window treatment assets to permit a quiet style. Many online retailers have color swatches available for your viewing, so that you can plan the best way to utilize the versatility of vinyl mini blinds. It’s your call!
