Save money turning an ordinary window blind or turn mini-blind
into a decorator blind by attaching a few beads to the end of the draw strings.
Use discarded beads from clothing or household items, or pick them up at thrift
or hobby stores.
Here are some more frugal tips to save money on blinds.
- Avoid custom blinds.
They are costly. Most stores will cut the width of blinds,
and you can
make them shorter by removing some of the slats.
- Always keep blinds in neutral
shades so you don't get tired of them.
- Plantation shutters are are
classic and will last for years. However, they are costly.
Depending on your situation, it might be worth the investment.
