The smallest of the aluminum blinds sizes (½" and 1") has the widest selection of colors and finishes. These are the most economical blinds offered within Hunter Douglas aluminum blinds.
I was delightly surprised to see Hunter Douglas Natural Elements™ blinds. It is a combination of real wood valances and aluminum slats.
A few of the upgrades include the literise (cordless) option as well as the option for adding decorative tapes. Both enhance the blind greatly.
LiteRise Lift System Option
Simple Selections™ by Graber offers a 1" Aluminum Blind. These affordable blinds are pretty straight forward and do not have upgrade options. They are however easy to mount with their hidden brackets, have a sleek headrail design allowing for no valance, and both the headrail and bottomrail are color coordinated. Turn around time is quite quick with only having to wait 10 days.
