Blinds are the most commonly seen window coverings.

Opposite of shutters, they are joined to the inner surface of or above the window recess. They’re also made in a wider range of materials, colors and looks than shutters.

Think about these things when choosing between blinds and interior shutters:

Cost

Blinds are typically lower in cost than shutters, but our Hunter Douglas blinds don’t give up our standards for affordable interior design. And select styles can be supplied with modern motorized operating systems you can command with your phone.

Light Control and Privacy

Blinds allow for a huge deal of light control and privacy, whether you need horizontal blinds or vertical blinds. Both types protect against blinding sunlight. They also hamper sun damage to your furniture and flooring.
