How Much Do Blinds Cost?
When it comes to buying blinds, it’s important to know that you’re not paying over the odds. Because there’s such a variety of blinds, and such a variety of window shapes and sizes, there’s no definitive cost; instead, it is often priced per m2. In this piece, we’ll look at the reasons for the difference in prices between various styles of blinds and how that may influence your choices.
There’s a wide variety of materials to choose from when it comes to blinds, and each one offers its own characteristics. Of course, each material also comes with its own price, so there’s a decision to be made on that front.
Roller blinds, for example, tend to cost up to £70 per square metre for the most sophisticated types, but as little as £10 per square metre for polyester versions. £70 might sound a lot on the face of it, but it is considerably less than panel blinds, which can cost up to £400 per square metre.
If you want blackout blinds for your property, then you need to be prepared to pay a little more. They are more substantial than classic roller blinds, and as such they cost more to buy than their non-blackout counterparts.
Blinds come in a variety of materials, from the aforementioned polyester to wood, metal and plastic. Certain materials cost more to manufacture than others, which will have an impact on the cost of your blind of choice. Wooden blinds, for example, are more expensive than plastic ones – PVC blinds range from £23 to £26, whereas some wooden blinds can cost as much as £66.
Bespoke and made-to-measure
Having your blinds made bespoke to your requirements is going to increase the price, but it is certainly a price worth paying. This eliminates the risk of ordering blinds that are too small or too big; they’ll fit perfectly into your window.
Opting for big-name brands is going to cost you more money, but it might not guarantee you a better quality of blind. Be sure to shop around for your blinds; using a professional blinds maker and installer like Kingston Blinds Direct will guarantee a quality window dressing, and do so at a very competitive price. Keep this in mind before heading straight to the big brand names.
