Looking to purchase new window coverings for your home or business but don’t know where to start? Just like when you’re shopping for anything, the first thing you should do is ask yourself: how much is this and will it fit within my budget? Cost is the main factor that most people take into account and base their purchases on.
Now the question is, how much do custom window coverings cost? The answer is, well, it depends. There are so many factors that are overlooked when purchasing custom window coverings, a set price just wouldn’t work. Listed below are a few factors that could adjust the cost of your window coverings.
This one speaks for itself. Having a larger window requires a large blind. More materials go into creating these expansive blinds, resulting in a higher price.
Nowadays, there are so many different brands of window coverings on the market. The majority of these brands sell similar styles of window coverings. Some brands sell cheaper products, however, that comes at the expense of the quality and warranty. Top-of-the-line brands, such as Hunter Douglas, may cost more upfront but will last you longer in the long run with their superior quality and lifetime limited warranty. It’s an investment for your home that could save you money over time.
With Hunter Douglas blinds, every style of window covering has more than one option for the operating system. Each style has its own standard operating system which is free of charge. Changing to a different system, such as choosing a cordless option or motorizing your blinds with our PowerView feature, will be an added surcharge.
Style and Fabric
Here at Linh’s, we offer many different styles of window coverings such as the classic honeycomb shade, elegant modern roman shades, real wood shutters, and more. Within these different styles, there are different fabrics or colours to choose from which vary in price. To figure out which style to go with, consider the room this blind will go in. What are the needs for this room? Does it need protection against UV rays and glare while still allowing light through? Or maybe it needs to block out all the light it can? Knowing what your needs are beforehand can quickly narrow down your options for easy decision-making.
