Tips on Selecting Your Blinds

There are many things to consider when you are looking to purchase new window blinds for your home. It can seem daunting, but Sunburst Blinds has created an intuitive ordering system to help you find the best blinds for your home.
  1. Do you want window blinds, vertical blinds or window shades?
  2. Consider the purpose of your blinds: How much light do you want to block when the blinds are closed? Is adding privacy important to you? Do you want to maintain the view from your window, or are you open to blocking the view to reduce the light or to add privacy?
  3. Consider your room décor. All of our blinds and shades come in many different styles and colors.
  4. And last, consider your budget. How many windows do you need to cover, how big are they, and how much can you afford to spend? Sunburst Blinds offers all of our window treatments at discount prices, so you can be sure that you're getting a great deal.

Basics on Measuring for Blinds
Measuring your window for our window blinds and shades is easy. First and foremost, when measuring for your blinds, be sure to use a steel measuring tape and to round all measurements down to the nearest 1/8 of an inch.
  1. Choose the type of blind or shade you want.
  2. Select and inside or outside mount. That is, do you want your blinds mounted inside the window frame, or outside the window frame.
  3. Measure the window depth (not necessary for an outside mount).
  4. Measure the window width.
  5. Measure the window length.
