Adding style and class to your windows doesn’t need to cost the earth.

However, incorporating earthen tones in your decor isn’t a bad idea, as this neutral lounge proves.

Keeping the decor muted, the dark wood blinds help tie in the space and create a warm and tranquil sanctuary fit for any hard worker in need of some RnR every evening.

As is the case with all design elements, it’s how you mix and match them that matters. A set of blinds like this are budget-friendly; however, putting them together with Scandi elements make them appear higher-end.

Roman duck blind ideasCheap duck blind ideas

Roman blinds, aka, duck blinds are those that fold in on themselves.

Both practical and stylish, they’re great for any type of window, adding flair and interest to every room they’re installed.

What’s great about roman blinds is how they work with or without curtains. These homeowners opted to incorporate blinds that were a feature in themselves. By matching them with the rest of the decor, the result is a rustic cottage vibe.

These modern jalousie blinds are a gorgeous example of how to modestly dress your window for an understated and simple aesthetic.

This not only allows any curtains to stand out as the main design accessory, but they also work well on their own in minimalist homes looking to keep their decor clean and contemporary.

The two-tone stripes add interest and a custom-made feel, despite being a relatively low-cost option due to the cotton fabric they’re made from.

The only downside with these types of blinds is their maintenance. You will need to keep on top of the dust bunnies to avoid discolouration. Learn how to look after your blinds, curtains and shutters to improve their longevity and save on cleaning or repair costs. If you do, however, need a repair, take a look at how much blind repairs cost.

Cheap conservatory blinds on a budgetCheap conservatory blind ideas

These organza roll blinds are a delicate and whimsical option for your conservatory.

Not only do they allow the right amount of sunshine into your sunroom, but they also work with almost any decor.

We love how these homeowners have paired industrial hanging lights with their blinds. The juxtaposition of the soft glow and black metal detailing enhance these windows to their fullest, creating a designer effect without the designer price tag.

What’s more, they’re an inexpensive option that will cost you under £50. Take a look at our conservatory blinds cost guide for more information.

If you’re asking yourself, ‘What are the cheapest type of blinds?’ we know you really mean, ‘What are the best looking cheap blinds?’

And the answer solely depends on the aesthetic you’re looking for. For example, roller blinds are the cheapest type of blind on the market. However, this doesn’t mean they have to look that way.

As long as you match your decor to your blinds in a way that complements your room, you can make any type of blind look amazing.

For example, these homeowners chose roller shades for their tall glass windows, pairing them with a storage bench for added impact. Although the result is simple, it’s no less impressive.
