Looking for an Easy to Clean Window Treatment? Aluminum Blinds May Just do the Trick

If you are looking for a fashionable sleek modern window treatment, Hunter Douglas Modern Metals aluminum blinds would do the trick. The options are endless! The slat size ranges from ½" up to 2" giving you either an ultra private view or a wide view through. If light control is a factor for you, the de-Light™ feature is available in a few of the blinds. This feature blocks light and hides cord holes giving you better light control.

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 Selectionsby 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.
