What Are The Most Affordable Blind Types?

Jul 11 2021

You’ve spent already too much on house renovation, and now you are on a budget looking for blinds. No worries, window coverings don’t have to be expensive. Made to measure blinds are a great investment but can cost quite a lot if you buy them from high street retailers. In today’s post, we will share with you some of the most affordable blind types that you can find on our website. We will also try to estimate the cost of each blind based on a size of a 1mx1m window so you can roughly expect how much you will have to spend.

Ready-Made Blinds

If you are on a tight budget, you might be considering ready-made blinds. They are generally cheaper than made to measure products. However, the low price, most of the time also means low quality. We wrote a whole separate post where we compare made to measure and ready-made products that you can find here. In short, ready-made products come with a small choice of fabrics and available sizes. They are great if you quickly need to cover your window but if you are looking for a long-term solution, we highly recommend made to measure products.

Made to measure blinds come in a wide price range. Depending on the blind type and material, the starting prices vary from £7.90 to £107.00. In today’s blog post we feature some of the most inexpensive blind types that are still high quality and look very stylish.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are the most popular blind type available on our website. They are versatile, easy to use and available in a variety of colours. If you are redecorating on a budget, a roller blind is an easy way to transform the look of the room. The blind can introduce a pop of stylish colour and add some interest to plain, monochromatic interiors. The price of roller blind depends on the fabric that the blind is made of and the control type. On our website, you can choose from over 300 fabrics, including features such as blackout, fire retardant, pollergen treated fabrics. You will find specific information about each fabric in the 'Additional information' section under each of the products.

At Your Blinds Direct, the price of roller blinds starts from £7.98, and the rough price for window 1m x 1m is £43.

Our motorised roller blinds are a luxury addition to your home at an affordable price. Our prices start from an additional £88.00 for a starter kit. Motorised roller blinds are a great investment and can save you money in the long run. If used with our home hub, they can be programmed to open and closed even if you are not at home. They can provide extra security to your home and lower your heating bills in winter.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are a great choice for wide windows and patio doors. They are affordable, easy to use and give you great control over light and privacy.

We would especially recommend them for living rooms, dining rooms and rooms with large windows. The price of vertical blinds will depend on the fabric and headrail type that you will choose.

Aluminium Venetian Blinds

Venetian blinds are a great choice for living rooms, bathrooms and kitchens. This blind type gives you amazing control over light and privacy. The blind is made of horizontal slats that can be tilted to allow the exact amount of light into the room that you want. Venetian slats are made from high-quality aluminium which makes this blind type extremely durable. Aluminium blinds are also moisture resistant and waterproof. If your room gets a lot of sun we would recommend our thermal or perforated range.

Generally, venetian blinds are great value for money. The starting price of venetian blinds is only £8.80 and the price for a 1m x1m window is £62.22.
