Are you considering purchasing blinds for your windows? If so, there are a few things that you should know before investing in window treatments. Blinds come in many different styles, sizes, and colors – and they can be mounted to the ceiling, walls or window frames. But do blinds come with a house when you buy one? To help you understand what’s involved when shopping for window blinds, we’ve put together this guide to answer some of the most common questions. 

Can Blinds Be Mounted to the Ceiling? 

Yes! You can mount blinds to either your ceiling, walls or even the window trim. It all depends on your preference, desired look and the blind’s mounting profile. This is true for all kinds of blinds including wood blinds, honeycomb shades, aluminum blinds and so many other varieties. However, if you have an angled or sloped window, it may be difficult (or impossible) to mount any type of blind. In that case, consider installing custom-made shutters.

Do Blinds Come With A House When You Buy? 

No – unfortunately, window treatments are not typically included with the sale of a home (at least not in most cases). Even if they are included with the sale of a house, they may not be in good condition or match your decor/style preferences. We suggest shopping around to find the perfect set of window treatments that work with your home’s aesthetic and personal style choices. 

Elements To Consider When Purchasing Blinds 

When shopping for blinds there are several factors to keep in mind such as materials used for construction (aluminum vs. wood), size ranges (width & length), colors available (including white vs off-white), mounting type (ceiling or wall), light control options (open/closed/partial open/partial closed) and operating mechanisms (cordless vs corded). Lastly, budget is certainly important. Fortunately, there are several different price points available regardless of how much money you have set aside for this purchase.     

Investing in quality window treatments can make a huge difference in both the look and feel of any room in your home. From real wood to honeycomb shades to aluminum mini-blinds – there are plenty of options out there so take your time researching before making any purchases! That being said – keeping these FAQs in mind while shopping around will help ensure that you select just the right set of blinds that fit perfectly into your budget and lifestyle needs! Happy hunting!
