What You Need to Know about Mini Blinds Prices

Dec 22nd 2015 at 9:00 AM

Mini blinds are handy for providing privacy in your home without blocking out sunlight completely. In addition, these blinds add a nice touch to your home, and when seen from the outside it works as a nice background for drapes or curtains. Furthermore, these blinds can do a lot in terms of reducing noise and protecting your furniture and paintings from damage caused by sunlight.

Costs and Materials

The minimum cost is around $21, with the high end types reaching up to $57 on average. The cost of these materials depend on the size, the material and if custom options were specified with the order. If you are on a budget, the vinyl blinds is the best option, and it’s almost always a good choice as they can be trimmed easily and are available in different colors.

Vinyl blinds are also ideal for small and medium sized homes, and with prices ranging from $21 to $31, it shouldn’t be that expensive. Aluminum blinds are a bit more expensive but last longer and of a higher quality.  For remodeling and renovations, faux and wood blinds are ideal as they produce a look that is compatible with a wide array of styles and decors.

Prices of wood shades usually begin at $75 per blind, and the bigger the piece the more  expensive the price tag gets. If you still want that wood look without spending too much, go with faux wood as it only costs $30 to $36, and no one will be able to spot the difference. Furthermore, faux wood does not warp like real wood so you can use it anywhere you want.


The cost of installation varies, and the total expenses depend on how many sets of blinds you are going to install. On the average, the cost will be around $10 to $20 per blind, but it is not uncommon for companies to offer discounts and packages so it is more affordable.

The installation cost is usually similar for all blinds regardless of the material used, the only exception being if there is special hardware that needs to be installed. Usually blinds and solar shades that require special installation have the necessary tools supplied.

Regardless which material you choose, plan beforehand, in particular what blinds or shades work best with your home design motif and of course budget. By planning ahead, you will be able to avoid  problems later on.
