We categorize blinds and shades together. They are different yet similar in the way they don't use lots of fabric. Curtains and drapes do use fabric so we are grouping them together. They generally fall in the same price ranges for their respective qualities.
Blinds and Shades #
- You can purchase basic blinds and shades for $10 to $50. This will get you a basic shade or blind that will do the job.
- Room darkening blinds or "blackout blinds", as some call them, are a little more expensive. They start at a cost of $50 and go up from there.
Curtains and Drapes #

Things to Consider #

The cheapest blinds are not always the best option. Nicer blinds may cost more money up front but will usually last longer in the long run.
