What are the cheapest blinds options?

Here at Fraser James Blinds, we know that budgets for window coverings can vary from household to household. We also know that even when money is no object, some homeowners prefer to go down the economical route when they’re buying new window coverings…  

Perhaps the most popular window dressing,blinds, offer a versatile window solution that is widely available and affordable to buy. 

Blindsare a form of internalwindow coveringwhich come in a wide variety of styles and materials. When we say there is something for everyone, we mean it! You will not have to compromise on style when choosingblinds!  

At Fraser James Blinds, we have many years of experience, so we’ve put together this list of 3 of the most attractive and affordable blinds in the market today.  

So, what type of blinds are the cheapest? 

If you’re shopping for window blinds on a budget, knowing what type of blinds are the cheapest overall can save you time and potentially, money. Here are the three cheapest types of blinds to buy. 

Vertical Blinds  

Vertical Blinds

First up we have vertical blinds. Vertical Blinds are relatively inexpensive, and the cheapest blinds we offer here at Fraser James Blinds.  

Vertical blinds are vertical lengths of fabric that are clipped to a sliding track at the top and operated with a plastic wand or chain. If you’re looking for the cheapest blinds for very large, tall, or wide windows, vertical blinds are often the lowest cost viable option overall.  

Factors that can often up the price of vertical blinds include picking PVC or blackout fabrics and higher quality options.  

Vertical blinds are a fantastic combination of style and flexible functionality. They bring high levels of privacy and shade to any room while being simple to operate, control and adjust, and make impressive statement pieces to any room. Vertical blinds look particularly special on patio doors, french doors and floor-to-ceiling windows, and can really help make a living room pop. 

Standard Roller Blinds 

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds are fabric blinds made up of one piece of fabric that hangs from a headrail. They have a weighted bottom bar to keep them in place when closed. 

Roller blinds are almost always the cheapest blinds to buy like-for-like compared to other types of blinds. They’re really versatile and popular in all types of homes and rooms, not just those being styled on a budget. 

Roller blinds offer a completely compact and practical window dressing solution, with an extensive range of colours, designs, patterns and fabrics to cater to all tastes. 

Roller blinds are perfect for all rooms in the home, including living rooms, bathrooms and home offices. However, they are particularly great for bedrooms, given how easy they are to motorise and fit with a blackout lining. 

Faux-wood Blinds  

Faux Wood Blinds

Seeking the warm, natural look of wooden blinds without the expense or maintenance? Faux wooden Venetian blinds are the perfect alternative to the real deal, offering the same earthly aesthetic without the risk of warping.  

Faux wood blinds are a style of Venetian blind. Compared to the previous two, they are a little more expensive, however, in terms of price versus impact, faux-wood blinds certainly don’t look like a budget option and make quite the impact.  

Faux wood costs significantly less than real wood but still provides the same timeless style. They are made of PVC that has a textured wood effect, so they are perfectly well suited to moist or humid rooms in even their lowest cost and most bare-bones variants.  

The high-quality faux-wooden Venetian blinds we offer here at Fraser James Blinds look very similar to real wooden venetian blinds (which we offer here too) and come in a range of different finishes.  

Venetian faux-wood blinds are ideal for any room too – bedroom, living room or conservatory – thanks to the excellent light control that they offer. They are particularly good for kitchens and bathrooms since you don’t have to worry about damage from moisture. 

What are the best value blinds?  

Cost and value are two very different things. We just want to remind you that sometimes paying the lowest possible price might actually work out far more expensive in the long run.  

To identify the cheapest and most valuable blinds, it really is important to factor in the usage challenges. For example, vertical blinds in a bathroom? Not so great. You’d need to upgrade the fabric to be waterproof and what does this mean? More money. But water-resistant aluminium venetian blinds or faux-wood blinds would be a great addition.  


Buying good-quality blinds doesn’t mean spending heaps of money. It is entirely possible to buy cheap blinds that come in the exact style and finish you want and will remain looking good and working properly for many years to come!
