What type of blinds are best to buy for my home?
The best blinds to buy truly depend on your individual needs. Though there are so many styles and options to choose from, our team can help you determine the best choice for your lifestyle, taste, and budget. For example, below are some of our most popular blinds for St. Paul homes, along with their benefits.
- Faux wood blinds – Custom faux wood blinds are perhaps our biggest seller at Bloomin' Blinds of St. Paul because they offer the warmth and charm of real wood blinds with extra durability, less maintenance, and a lower price point. Choose faux wood blinds for damp or humid rooms like the kitchen or the bathroom, since they won’t warp or fade like real wood.
- Aluminum mini blinds – The lightweight, durable nature of aluminum mini blinds make them ideal for smaller, narrower, or oddly shaped windows, like those in entryways. They come in a variety of colors, as well as glossy or matte finishes, to match any décor.
- Wood blinds – Made from the real thing, wood blinds add an upscale warmth and elegance to any room. Depending on your tastes and preferences, wood blinds can be stained or finished to match virtually any décor.
- Motorized blinds – Add convenience, efficiency, and safety with motorization. We offer motorized blinds that can be controlled by remote control or even an app on your smart phone or tablet that lets you automate when to open and close the blinds for maximum energy efficiency and security. Plus, motorized blinds can eliminate lift cords, a common safety hazard for homes with kids and pets.

Which blinds offer the most privacy?
The best blinds for privacy are blackout blinds, which are designed to block all light from entering a room. For your home in St. Paul, blackout blinds are available in a variety of colors and materials, including faux wood and aluminum. For larger or wider windows, such as sliding glass doors, vertical blinds are a budget-friendly window treatment that offers excellent privacy benefits.
