Custom Wood and Faux Wood Blinds

Custom blinds add value and aesthetic appeal to your home. Whether you prefer the clean-cut look or want to block the light out, wood or faux wood blinds are an excellent window covering solution that can suit any home and style. Here is the ultimate guide to custom blinds.

Custom Vs. Standard

When shopping for blinds, you might notice some interior stores or home depots stock standard blinds. These are often easy to purchase and budget-friendly. However, there are several reasons why custom blinds are a better value compared to standard store-bought options.

  • Finding the perfect fit – There is no such thing as a “standard” sized window. Most often, no two homes are built alike; window lengths and widths can vary. Purchasing ready-made blinds can lead to ill-fitting window coverings that leave gaps or a big stack of slats in your windowsill and creates an unfinished look. Windows that have non-standard measurements can require calculations and guesswork when fitting blinds.
  • Quality control – While you can purchase quality standard fit blinds, they can be pricey. It is sometimes better to opt for fully customized blinds that suit your tastes and are made from quality materials.
