Budget Blinds So much more than just a Blind

When you are thinking about purchasing window coverings, your first thought may be of blinds or curtains, but truth be told, there are so many options available to you. Booking a consultation to go over all the incredible options out there, is the best idea, and Budget Blinds brings the showroom to you!!

The top 3 window coverings in rural Manitoba are the Honeycomb Cellular, the Roller Shade, and the Zebra Blind. We can surely see why they are so popular; they are versatile and offer an array of product options. But, if you are wanting something a bit more unique for your space, you can go through all the product offerings with the team at Budget Blinds. Check out these products you may not have considered before!

Dual Roller Shades

Most fabricators offer a “Dual” Roller Shade. The essence is to have two shades functioning in one window. One shade provides privacy or blackout, while the other is sheer or light filtering. It’s the best of both worlds! They are perfect for rooms where you want to control the light like bedrooms, nurseries, home theatres, and living rooms.  They are also a great option for businesses and commercial spaces.  The BB team looks to Norman Window Fashions first, as their cordless mechanism for Roller Shades is possibly the best in the industry.

Enclosed Door Glass Blinds

Budget Blinds has been installing these inserts weekly, as they are so popular.  Blinds enclosed between glass gives you privacy and light control without dangling cords and endless dusting, and it’s so slick; one lever handle controls both the lift and the tilt of the blind inside. Gord and Laurie professionally remove the old, tired glass from a customer’s full door, half door, or sidelight and install a new unit. Gord even spends the time removing the glue from the sticker! The customers rave that these inserts are “definitely worth every penny”!

Fabric Wrapped Cornice

Such a simple and effective way to add a finishing touch…without a lot of fuss. These cornices are available in hundreds of fabric selections and made locally. Sleek and snazzy or subtle and contemporary, they stylize this top treatment to suit your décor.


The BB team has noticed an increased demand for Shutters in this market. Shutters come in many paint and stain colour options including custom colours, and suit any décor style. The Shutters used in the side-lights have a split tilt, wherein the bottom opens separately from the top. This application was all about the family dog and having some natural light up top while stopping the bark below. Shutters look amazing in specialty-shaped windows. The Café Shutter in an angle-toped window provides privacy and functionality while maintaining architectural interest.
