Blinds and Shades 101
The brands of window treatments that you see from dealers, building supply, department stores and on line are probably made from the same handful of fabricators using the same materials with different names. However there will be a difference in price. There are 3 price categories; Budget, Basic and High End. A starting price is around 100.00 for an average size window, discounts for ordering a large quantity at one time (10-20) can bring that average down between 75.00-100.00 dollars. Shades will cost more.
Budget class is ok if you are on a tight budget and want something better than aluminum foil, Newspaper, sheets or pre-packaged 1' plastic mini blinds. The materials used will usually be the least expensive and will wear out quickly or have to be replaced.
Basic class will offer a range from low to high and have better quality. Most manufacturers offer an economy group which they buy material in bulk and pass the savings to the consumer.
High End class offers the very best in materials and workmanship. Usually 2nd or 3rd time homeowners who appreciate detail and luxury purchase from this category.
